LSAT STUDY TIPS & RESOURCES
LEARN ABOUT THE LSAT
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is unlike any test you’ve ever taken in your academic career. The LSAT is a skills-based exam designed to test the critical reading and analytical thinking skills that are crucial for success in law school. Before you begin your LSAT prep, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the exam so you can be prepared for what is on the test.
LSAT STUDY PLAN: 30 DAYS
In order to study for the LSAT in a month and see a significant score improvement, you will need to use your time very efficiently. Maybe you registered for the test one month ago and got caught up in work, school, family, or other fun. Or maybe you just made the decision to apply to law school and are signing up for the test now. Regardless, if you’re going to take the LSAT in a few short weeks, you’ve got some work to do.
MASTER THE EXAM: SECTIONS OF THE LSAT
This is the section many preppers are most intimidated by at first, and often find most challenging. But once you learn how to apply formal logic, the analytical reasoning section can be quite fun.
Two Logical Reasoning sections, worth 50% of your total score, test your ability to analyze and evaluate arguments. Logical Reasoning requires you to read short passages and answer a question about each one.
On the LSAT, you’ll see four passages, each with a set of 5–8 questions. One of the passages will be “paired passages” with questions asking you to compare and contrast the passages.
