If you’re preparing for a standardized test like the SAT, GRE, LSAT, etc., you need a study schedule that encompasses months, not weeks or days! Below, I’ve listed a one-month, two-month, and three-month study schedule to help you prepare for your major test.

If you only have one month to prepare for your exam, you have to remember that your individual study sessions will be longer, despite the fact that your study schedule is shorter. So if your days are packed full of things to do, then consider increasing your time frame so your daily study time is reduced.
Expanding your study schedule to include another month will help you considerably. You’ll be able to squeeze in an additional practice test, and evaluate your scores after each to make corrections and truly learn from your mistakes.
Ideally, I’d recommend using the three-month study schedule. Here, you’ll be able to spread out your learning, so your brain has time to soak it all in. In addition, your weakest subject will get more attention, and often, that can make or break your score.
