Increasing Your Speed on the LSAT

If you took the LSAT home with you overnight and worked on it as long as you needed, chances are you’d find yourself with a very impressive score. Unfortunately for many of us, it’s the speeded aspect of the exam that makes everything else about the LSAT more challenging: you need more time to read

Bad Analogies Are a Lot Like Questions About Dinosaurs

If you were training to run a race, it wouldn’t be a good idea to work out like crazy one day a week and loaf the rest. Studying for the LSAT, like training for a race, involves building up skills over time. So you shouldn’t cram your LSAT studying on the weekends but instead spread it out over time.

There, I just made an analogy.

Avoid These LSAT Faux Pas

Some bad habits, like cracking your knuckles or picking your nails, are socially acceptable. But some bad habits are such faux pas that they can never be forgiven among polite company.

Building Confidence for the LSAT

Confidence is essential to performing your best on the LSAT. You can put in the hours studying and enter the test equipped with optimal LSAT skills, but the way you feel about the material and yourself is the last piece you will still need in order to achieve your best score. No matter how a student has prepared for the test, there are still things they can do as their exam day nears to boost their test-day confidence and give themselves the best opportunity to succeed.

Group Study! Group Study?

The LSAT is, by its nature, a solitary pursuit: just you and your trusty #2 pencil against the world, identifying errors in logic and determining which of the following could be true. But sometimes, LSAT-takers prefer to make their one-man (or -woman) wolf packs a little bigger by studying as part of a group. If you’ve been considering recruiting some fellow studiers for a thrilling night of LSAT prep, here are some pros and cons to consider.

If You’re Studying for the LSAT, Memorize this List

In an episode of Bob’s Burgers, Tina spends all night practicing a song and dance for her book report on Call of the Wild (which she didn’t read).”You’ll be fine,” says Tina’s mom. “Just remember all the steps … memorize all the lyrics … and don’t mess it up.” For the most part, memorizing for the LSAT has a lot in common with practicing for a report on a book you didn’t read. You’ll be a lot better off working through actual LSAT questions (or just doing the reading for your book report) than you will be trying to take shortcuts.

From the Vaults: Diajammable Statements

You’ve been studying for the LSAT for some time. Plugging away, figuring out when to make scenarios on Logic Games, how to tag a Reading Comprehension passage, and memorizing those common fallacies that recur on Logical Reasoning. You’ve been diligent, methodical, indefatigable.
