Don't Zen Yourself Out

Although we preach a strict adherence to a self-study schedule, you must know where to draw your boundaries. While deciding your calendar, do not try and immediately force yourself to study longer and more intensely than you ever have before. That's a sure way to burn out and lose the energy you have driving your training.

Here is where we draw the line:

We advocate taking only one (1) or two (2) full LSATs--ten (10) total sections when you count the experimentals--a week, but not in one sitting, for the first month of your training program. Gradually ramping up to full Zen mode is as necessary as slowly adding mileage up to your first marathon.

Get your Zen on, but not on the beach.
