Demon student Nikki is eager to push her practice test scores from the mid 170s to the high 170s. How can she squeeze out those last few LSAT points? Nathan and Ben advise Nikki to focus more on understanding individual questions and not to fixate on reaching perfection. Ben explains the “85% rule”: When you aim to run at 85% capacity, you often perform better than when you shoot for 100%.
