For all of you taking the LSAT tomorrow, good luck! By now you’ve done your practice tests, run through your drills, and gotten yourselves in optimal LSAT-taking shape. How should you spend your last precious hours before the test? Here are some tips.
I’m posting a link to a workshop we ran for our Knewton LSAT prep students. Anyone can view it, so check it out! We’ll break down how to approach the writing sample, how to prepare for test day itself, and what you should do for last-minute prep.

A minor note on test-taking strategy. One of the best tricks (and the simplest) is to make sure you have your answer-bubbling strategy in place. There are strategies! You can bubble in answers a question at a time or wait until you finish a page, RC passage, or logic game. All methods work, just choose the one you like best beforehand so you’re consistent.
There’s no penalty for guessing on the LSAT, so also make sure you fill in every answer choice before time runs out. If you have a few minutes at the end of the section, use it to review questions you were unsure about and double-check that you’ve taken a stab at every answer.
Remember that the goal for tomorrow is accumulating points, not achieving perfection. These small tips can lead to big gains over the course of the test.
Good luck everyone!
