LSAT Test Day Checklist


Live Q&A I did shortly after the September 2018 LSAT:

Questions I answered in the above video include:

* "​I had 3 LR today. Any way of telling which one was experimental?"

* "I am going to take my first timed preptest tomorrow. Should I complete 4 or 5 sections?"

* "Why they don't disclose certain tests? And why they don't disclose tests held outside the US and Canada? Will they break down what you get in each section for these unreleased tests or just give you the final lsat score?"

* "Do you know if the LSAT is moving away from paper and pencil?"

* "If I cancel, how do you recommend I study for the next one? I've been studying for over a year and need a little bit of time away after the past few weeks of rigorous study."

Live Q&A I did 3 days before the September 2018 LSAT:

Questions I answered in the above video include:

* "How do I prepare the warm-up? Should it be done in the early morning before I head out? I heard that the waiting time is long, and no material is allowed in the test center."

* "Any strategy in RC if I have only 5 min left when I get to the last passage?"

* "Are there any differences between tests administered in the US and outside the US?"​

* "How many tests should you take to have a good idea of what your performance on test day would be approximately like?"

Live Q&A I did one week before the September 2018 LSAT:

Questions I answered in the above video include:

* "What realizations did you make in your studying that you didn't read in prep books that helped you the most?"

* "How do I review effectively? How do I internalize the mistakes/actual fallacies I overlooked to not miss a similar question next time?"

* "During test day, if I have time remaining I find myself using this leftover 'review time' inefficiently. The brain is tired, etc. What are your best practice suggestions?"
