Test day coming up in a week or two and not sure how to spend your study hours? Try reprioritizing Logic Games. Doing a game or two a day—and relatively little else—lets you keep the LSAT mental gears turning while still tapering study time down. If you’re feeling tired, you can even taper more by just doing a handful of individual games that target weaknesses. 

Good study plans vary depending on how far out a student is from test day. At the beginning of the journey, it’s wise to emphasize the Core Curriculum and developing fundamentals. Later on, add in focused PTs with blind review, along with drilling that targets weaknesses and shores up strengths. 

But the calculus should change in the 10 days before game time. In the run-up to test day, don’t add on more stress or do things that destabilize your test-taking strategies. It’s essential, for example, to avoid trying to overhaul your fundamental approach to a section or spending hours blind reviewing.

So why do Logic Games work well before test day?

First, one of the skills that permeates the entire LSAT—even Reading Comprehension—is logical reasoning. Games help keep your logic grooves going as you approach the test. Second, games can be bite-sized. In that final week, it’s less daunting to take on one 35-minute section that’s broken into four pieces than to stare down an unbroken section of Logical Reasoning questions. You can even do a single game and feel a sense of accomplishment. Third, games can be fun—it’s in the name! And finally, games can be a nice way of seeing how far you’ve come. If you repeat a game you did a long time ago, you can see all you’ve learned in the interim and how much more comfortable you’ve gotten.
