With 30 days left to test day, can anyone pls give me advice on how I can best prepare myself within the next month to enter test day in the best shape possible? Talking about in terms of eating habits, sleep schedule, avoiding stress, etc. I remember there being a post about this, but I couldn't find it.

    Go ahead and plan out what you want the morning of your test to look like, and even the evening before. Start now treating every day like it’s test day. Enforce your bedtime and wake up calls and go through your routine every day exactly as you will on test day to get your mind, body, and spirit into a rhythm. Come test day you’ll be in the groove.

    A few commonly recommended test morning activities: LR/LG drills, exercise, meditation, breakfast, your preferred method of caffeine consumption, and of course, the ever popular bodily functions.

    thanks, really appreciate it!
    Any tips for reducing test-day anxiety and treating the test like it's any other PT? I've taken publicly proctored practice exams in an effort to prepare for test-day, but I'm worried that the real test will have an entirely different feel.

    Jog the morning of your exam before you go to the test center. There is science to back up that exercise can decrease test day anxiety. I didn't do it before my first LSAT (Oct. 2015). I did do it before my second (Dec. 2015). Made a big difference for me.

    @GordonBombay how long of a run would you say?

    @nanchito doesn't have to be long at all. I would say one mile would be the floor and anything over three would prob be excessive.

    But a lot of that depends on if you're a regular runner. I run 3x a week and did a quick 1.5 miles on my test day.
