The Last Push: The Final Weekend Before the June LSAT
- Jun 09, 2017
You made it! Well, almost. But congratulations on getting this far. The war is almost over. Here’s what you should do with your final weekend before the LSAT.
1. Finish studying by Saturday night
You should wrap everything up by Saturday night. That means, get your last practice test in, and finish any outstanding homework or Logic Game reps. If you’ve already been going above and beyond with your LSAT prep you can even take Saturday off. But everyone, and I mean you too, should take Sunday off completely. At this point, you can do a helluva lot more harm than good by trying to cram for the LSAT. This isn’t undergrad. You won’t get anything out of cramming. Instead, you’ll need to get your rest and turn down your stress level.
2. Do something fun on Sunday
I don’t know you that well, so I’ll have to speak for myself. I love going to the arcade and playing the zombie shooting games. Time flies by and I feel completely recharged afterwards. So find your zombie shooter, and do it on Sunday. Don’t just stew at home thinking about the LSAT. Get out and do something fun! But not too fun, you don’t want to be sore, hung over, or feeling guilty on Monday.
3. Focus on Logic Games if you don’t know what to do
If you absolutely have to feel like you’re getting something done on Saturday, but you have nothing specific left to do, Logic Games are your best bet. Get a stack of games from your past that you thought were interesting or difficult and redo them a few times in the morning, and again in the evening. About 10 to 30 games max should do it.
The Games section will be the place where you’ve likely experienced the most improvement and where being sharp will be key. You can make sure you maintain your Logic Game gains by redoing old games. Keep a sharp eye out for the key deductions and how you should have spotted them from the rules. Also, make sure you mix in some games where you have to play the numbers and where scenarios are absolutely necessary.
4. Make sure you know where your LSAT test center is
Last, but oh so important: you need to get to your test center on Monday. So take a dry run to your test center, either in real life or the virtual life of Google maps. Either way, make sure you know how to get there, how long it’ll take in the worst case scenario, where to park, and how to get to the building.
5. Plan something for after the LSAT
One way you can help keep your stress in check during the test is to have something fun to go to right after. So text those friends you’ve been ignoring for the past few months and see if they’ll go have a few drinks or shoot some zombies with you after the LSAT.
