I wouldn't start studying in earnest until 3 or 4 months before the test. This is plenty of time.
Diehards like us probably take 30-40 past LSAT tests before the actual one.
It seems absurd but you can easily do that in a 3-4 month period. They become fun, challenging and somewhat addictive.
If you study now by the time March rolls around you'll be out of material or close to it. Since logic is easier to hold onto than memorizing facts, it may not matter if you dnt study for 3 months, but why risk it? Its alwasy nice to take one test a week, get a target score and feel confident.
Also, studying should not be your life. I made it my life for this summer - I can't imagine doing that for close to a calendar year. If you graduate at the head of whatever law school you go to you should be fine. There is life after 'Not Being Accepted into Yale'.
