5 Websites that Will Help You on LSAT Reading Comp

Success on LSAT Reading Comprehension depends a great deal on one’s reading ability (I know, you don’t need to be a prophet to arrive at this stunning revelation). But how do you become a “better” reader? You presumably mastered reading in middle school, so it may seem that by the time you reach adulthood your reading skills are as good as they’re going to get.

The truth of the matter, however, is that you can significantly improve your reading speed and comprehension by simply reading more. People who regularly read books and articles will not only read faster, but also have better retention of what they read. This is because ample reading literally improves your short-term memory, allowing you to retain content more accurately and for a longer period of time.

So if you are having trouble finishing LSAT Reading Comp passages in a timely manner, you know what you have to do—read more!

Summer Solstice Means More Time to Worry About the LSAT

For those of you who took the June LSAT, today’s summer solstice comes as a welcomed gift. It’s nature’s way of saying, “It’s OK; you can leave your dark bedroom decorated with LSAT practice problems and go back into the world,” like a mother giving her child a gentle shove through the doors of a kindergarten classroom. So for all of you who recently took the June LSAT, we encourage you to go out into the daylight and enjoy yourself. The sun may burn a bit at first, but that’s fine (and in case you forgot, avoid looking directly into it).

In all seriousness, try to relax; the June LSAT cancellation deadline has passed, so neither dwelling nor daydreaming will be particularly productive. Take advantage of the longest day of the year and hit the beach or go for a hike, but most importantly, quit worrying that you didn’t bubble in your answers dark enough or that you forgot to write your name on the Scantron. It’s still a couple of weeks before your LSAT score is released, so today is the perfect day to enjoy the accomplishment of finishing the LSAT, without being concerned about the result. Contrary to popular belief, refreshing your LSAC account home page will not make the results appear any sooner.
