Here are 7 quick tips:


* Make a Test Day playlist with motivational songs and videos

* Practice mindfulness meditation

* Make sure you allow time for sleep, diet, exercise, and relaxation

* Simulate test day conditions and prepare for distractions

* Relax the day before, but...

* Pack your bag the day before

* Do a few warm-up questions before entering the test center




This is a taste of what you'll find in my LSAT checklists, which are for you if:


* you want to save time and energy

* you're worried you might forget something

* you want a better list than the one you'd create for yourself

* you want to be able to prepare stress-free

* you're getting ready for test day and want to remember everything
