Warmup tomorrow morning?

Postby LSATgotrocked » Fri Dec 05, 2014 4:27 pm

Hey,

For those who have done well on this exam. Do you think it is worth doing 1 logic game/ a few lr qs (if so, how many), and 1 rc passage tomorrow morning before taking the test? Does this help or is it something that you would recommend not doing?

I wouldn't. The test is long enough as is, don't try to wear yourself out by doing too much.

Thanks for the reply. I feel the same way just wanted to see what others say. I have heard from some that they do it but it seemed kind of counterintuitive to me.

I didn't and don't feel as though it negatively impacted my score. Just try to relax and get a good sleep.

Depends on the person. I would highly recommend taking a practice section in the morning. Find one that you find easy and did well on to boost confidence and get the juices flowing. But really depends on you.

The answer is that you ought to do what you have been doing up to now. So, if you typically warm up before taking a preptest with a section or a game or whatever, then do that. If you typically read something unrelated to the LSAT, do that. As for myself, I have been reading Thomas Mann's behemoth Buddenbrooks pretty much the whole time I've been studying for the LSAT. So I've done so for about 20 minutes before taking preptests in the morning too. It's worked well (I think because it is translated from German, so the sentences are quite long and dense; in other words, I have to think about what it says.) So that's what I'm going to do tomorrow morning.

You should literally warmup. Do some push-ups and jog a mile. Quite serious.

Everyone is different, but I did a logic game and like 6 LR questions before my test and feel as though it contributed to my accesss. It got my wheels turning and since it wasn't much, didn't tire me at all. Do what makes you feel comfortable.

I warmed up with an easy-ish logic game to build my confidence/get my brain ready.
