Avoid These Bad Habits When Studying for the LSAT

You’ve gotten a handle on the strategies for the LSAT. Now all that’s left for you to do is practice them. What habits should you avoid getting into so you can be at peak preparedness come test day?

Unrealistic test conditions
Taking the actual test is a high-pressure event, so you want to replicate those conditions as closely as possible.

Studying in Complete Silence or in Noisy Conditions
While it may make things easier for you to study in complete silence, this is not what’s going to happen on test day. Your neighbor will be tapping her pencil, fiddling with her collar, and playing with her hair (how does she have so many hands?!). You will be distracted—if you let yourself. That’s why you need to practice at not being distracted when there are distractions.

What to Expect on Your Second Practice LSAT

With preparations for the October LSAT in full swing, many students are preparing for their second practice test right around now. The second practice test is a lot like a second date: you know what a little more about what to expect, you’re a little more comfortable with the process, but you’re still trying to figure a lot of things out. The good news is that you’re guaranteed a third, fourth, and even fifth date with the test. The bad news is that you might not want to see your date ever again after practice test number two is finished.

The reason for the bad news is that a lot of people struggle mightily on their second go around. I, for one, scored lower than my diagnostic on my second practice test. I was demoralized, mortified, humiliated, etc. etc. I didn’t really believe my instructor when he told me that I should expect to struggle. I thought that meticulously completing every practice problem and reviewing the answers would lead to instant improvements. It did not.
