Whether taking the GRE, GMAT, MCAT or LSAT, it is important to plan for the exam early on. Often times the locations and dates of the exams are limited, so register for your exam several months beforehand, or as soon as possible, to secure a seat in your general location. You also need to take into consideration the time that it will take for your results to be delivered to your selected schools. Take the exam early to avoid late reporting. If retaking the exam is a possibility, you may want to allow extra time to take advantage of this. Remember that there are fees associated with standardized exams, so being well-prepared the first time around will save you both time and money.
