US News' 7 Tips
So I came upon this article by US News & World Report about the main things you should keep in mind when studying for the LSAT. I think, in general, USNWR does a pretty strong job of giving advice applicable to people from many different backgrounds, and this is no different. Just some highlights for you, which I thought were especially important:
2. Help yourself, not your buddy
When you're studying for the LSAT you can't afford to waste time helping other people figure out where they're having problems. The LSAT targets you specifically, and if you know something there's no point in sitting in a study group going over things you know again and again. The article advises figuring out where you have the most trouble and getting a tutor or LSAT instructor to help you with those areas.
3. Don't just practice, analyze
I'm a huge fan of analyzing personal weaknesses, and this kind of goes back to #2. GO OVER THE ONES YOU MISSED AGAIN... AND AGAIN. It's a huge mistake just looking at your score and not going into more detail. Make sure you look at the ones you've gotten right and then gotten wrong on a subsequent test and try and figure out why that was. The LSAT tests your analytical and reasoning skills, and it's a good idea to start by analyzing yourself.
