How do I get faster at the LSAT?

The same way you get faster at anything else!

This may help contextualize the job for you:

I recently finished reading one of the best books I've ever read (really. You should absolutely check it out).

It's called Born To Run, and it's about the Tarahumara, an ancient tribe of Mexican Indian runners. All they do is drink (home-brewed) corn beer, wrestle naked, screw (an obvious outcome of the naked wrestling), and run. They can run for days. They're faster, as a group, than anyone in the world. It's unreal - hundreds of miles at a stretch.

The author of the book spent time with them, and when I came upon this lesson, offered by a man who'd spent years with the tribe, I was blown away by how exactly it mirrored my advice for gaining speed on the LSAT (the book is by Christopher McDougall, and I urge anyone reading this to pick it up. It's breathtaking, and suspenseful, and moving, and inspiring). Anyway, here's the passage:

“ ‘Lesson two,' Caballo called. 'Think Easy, Light, Smooth, and Fast. You start with easy, because if that's all you get, that's not so bad.

Then work on light. Make it effortless, like you don't give a shit how high the hill is or how far you've got to go.

When you've practiced that so long that you forget you're practicing, you work on making it smoooooth.

You won't have to worry about the last one—you get those three, and you'll be fast'."

Emphasis mine.
