Take a Small Break From LSAT Prep Over Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day Weekend is here and all of you deserve to take a day off and go nuts on the potato salad and hotdogs. Taking a short break from your October LSAT prep can help your LSAT score. So by all means, take a day this weekend to unwind.

Of course, you can’t afford to take the whole weekend off. You want to save your days of rest for the two weeks before the LAST. In those two weeks the most important thing is to be relaxed, well rested, and confident. But right now, you can afford to be tough on yourself.

At a minimum you should have your LSAT Logical Reasoning flaws memorized. Your success on Logical Reasoning questions depends on identifying flawed reasoning, and avoiding it yourself.

If you can follow a recipe, you can do well on the LSAT Logic Games section. So take some time this weekend to memorize your Logic Games strategies. Also, make sure you’re looking over the games that tricked you in the past. The games you will see on your actual LSAT will try to throw you off with these same old tricks.

It can take time to change your reading habits. So don’t neglect LSAT Reading Comprehension! The Reading Comprehension section is incredibly predictable. Passage after passage, the questions ask about the same structural elements. If you can train yourself to identify these structures, you will become an LSAT Reading Comprehension pro.

Finally, let’s talk about sleep. To do well on the October LSAT you’re going to have to function early in the morning without a ton of coffee. Remember, you only get a 15-minute break during this ordeal we call the LSAT. So now is a good time to start adjusting your sleep schedule.

Keep working hard, there’s still plenty to learn and practice, but you can have some fun too.

Most importantly, have a safe Labor Day Weekend!
