the day before the test

Not sure if this has been addressed before but what should I do the day before the test. I know everyone says to relax and not think about the lsat etc. But I've noticed that I tend to get rusty if I'm away from LSAT for more than a day. 

I want to do at least some lsat work but not sure if I should be taking a prep test because I notice that if I take a day off I actually look forward to taking a PT. What games/LR passages do you think would be best for drilling the day before? What should I review? Should I just review the most recent preptests?

Hey, there,

I've answered your question in this week's mailbag. Today's mailbag is recording number FIFTY-FIVE.

You'll notice that there are vertical lines running through the playback bar; each line represents a section break, so you can quickly jump to your question if you'd like (although you may have to wait for the entire video to load in order to navigate within playback).

I'm not sure what Dave said in his podcast, but I don't plan on doing anything timed after today (2 days before the test).  I've saved Dave's common flaws review and global review for Sunday, as well as probably 1 LR section.  I'll do an untimed RC, and review some games.  At this point I know I can get through the material fast enough, so I just want to maintain my LSAT mindset.  If I don't practice every day, I get noticeably less comfortable with the material.  A famous pianist once said something along the lines of, "If I do not practice one day, I know it.  If I do not practice the next, the orchestra knows it.  If I do not practice the third day, the whole world knows it."  I subscribe to this view when it comes down to crunch time.
