How Best to Maintain a High Score to Test Day?

I am taking the September LSAT and have recently been hitting some extremely high scores, and my question is basically as it says on the tin, what can I do to ensure that these scores hold to test day? What sort of study methods should be used as regards maintenance and atrophy prevention?

    If you've been constantly achieving high scores on a very consistent basis, say, like in all of the past 5-8 PTs, then I think it's safe to say that you've got the skills to maintain that score, assuming that you've done your PTs in a environment that's closely modeled after the test day environment. Just keep your current style, strategy and pacing. Tackle the few question types that you get wrong, and maybe you will even get better score :D

    One thing that people tend to do during the actual test is to rush, and rushing is one of the biggest reasons why people's scores drop! Just remember, no rushing! :) Wish you luck on your test!

    I'd warmup before the test with a very simple logic game. I will be doing this, as any lapse in LSAT taking manifests itself in my next LG score. I become hesitant and and bit paralyzed - at least enough to throw me off from my normal performance.

    heres a very helpful article by a 180 scorer
    they go into detail about their general prep and towards the end discuss preparing for test day and best managing stress to ensure test day goes smoothly.
