# What to "study" when you're on the couch

Hi there!

What do you guys review or study when you're not exactly focused and just hanging out? Any flashcards or anything? I was thinking about making some flash cards for various question stems. Curious to see what others do when they're not "in the zone" but still trying to be productive.

Hey there! This isn't exactly lsat specific but when I am just not "in the zone" I like to play sudoku. The game strategy is very similar to logic games and it stimulates my brain in much the same way. This is purely anecdotal, but I have noticed that the more I play sudoku on my freetime the more keen I become when making inferences on logic games.

Sidenote: Making flashcards is a great idea! You could even make virtual flashcards via Quizlet.com I use Quizlet to make flashcards for the different types of flaws, question stems, conditional statements, key terms, etc.

Hey, when I am trying to be productive but still bs'n I like to review the logical indicators for LR. I made flash cards, but under "Intro to Logic" there is a section I think its called "conditional indicators drill" where JY shows a little game that a student made. I find that to be very helpful and productive. Hope this helps!

I'd say reading or watching documentaries, especially science/history- sometimes just being more comfortable with scientific vocabulary, etc. makes reading comp a lot easier

I used to have flash cards with the valid/invalid argument forms and logical indicators on them that I’d flip through while netflixing every so often.

Similar to what KeepCalm said about Sudoku, it's not lsat specific but I like to do the New York Times crossword puzzle. There is a sense of keeping time as the stopwatch starts as soon as you begin, and there are always interesting words to learn which might help in RC. hope this helps
