Some people have asked what my typcial day would look like, so here it is.
Of course, if there was a subject that really didnt get, (such as when I took NY I totally did not get NY civ pro), I would spend additional days on it...
8 AM Rise and Shine/Shower/Eat Breakfast - we're still hygenic at this point
9 AM-1 Attend or Listen to Lecture
1-2:30 Lunch & Break Time or Nap
2:30-6:30 100 MBE Qs (2 hours to do & 2 hours to correct)
6:30-7 Break - usually to chat with friends - havent spoken to anyone all day!
7-8 Review "trouble" spots of the day (make mini outlines)
9:30-11:30 Issue spot 3 essays (20 mins each) and read sample essays (20 mins each)
Midnight - BED TIME
I suggest making up a schedule that you think that you can follow and be realistic. Dont say ok, 8AM - Midnight Review
Midnight - 2AM Essays
Dont go to bed
Remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. You cant burn out too early. Otherwise you just wont be able to build up the last month.
I also am a true believer in sleep and rest. That's why my schedule has so many breaks, especially towards the end of the day when my brain is fried. I also need like 8-9 hours of sleep a night, that's why in bed at midnight.
Also, except for the last 3 weeks before the exam, I ALWAYS take Sunday off and a weekday afternoon or evening off to do errands that cant be done on a Sunday. I usually took it on Thursday when I started feeling burnt out... An afternoon or day off means a more productive week.
Hope this helps!
