I used to plan my practicing around an audition where I would have my maximum practice about 4 or 5 days before the auditon, then would gradually taper off. I believe this is somewhat similar to training for a marathon where you have to carefully plan your workouts. Of course, this is in a perfect world where you actually feel that you have enough time to prepare for the audition! That is why I always tell students to start practicing for an audition as soon as they get the rep list, even if they're not sure if they're going or not. If a few weeks later they decide not to go, the practice won't do them any harm. But if someone waits until 2 weeks before and then starts practicing, then they will have no choice but to cram and won't be able to taper off practicing the last few days.
