Five Dos and Don'ts of LSAT Test Day

Posted by Caitlin on 5/20/19 8:01 PM

So LSAT test day is finally here. You’ve studied hard, you’ve taken practice tests, and now you are at the mercy of the test itself. Here are some Do’s and Don’ts (several of which I made myself!) to consider for test day:

However, most people don’t know that sleep two days before the test can be even more important than the night before.

In fact, seeing Ps and Qs may inspire some LSAT takers to feel particularly impolite: they generally signify a conditional reasoning problem, which can be stressful and confusing for those not familiar with how conditional reasoning works. However, with a little effort we can easily demystify the basics of conditional reasoning, so that you’re able to mind all types of Ps and Qs.
