Last Call for Our Spring Into Summer Sale!

After Memorial Day, it usually feels unquestionably summery. But even though we’re a week past that holiday, it still feels like the summer of 2018 is a ways off. The usual signifiers of summer haven’t quite appeared yet. By this point, there’s usually a consensus, can’t-miss summer blockbuster that captures the popcorn- and candy-addled imaginations of movie goers. But this year, Solo kind of came and went, and Jurassic World: Fallen World … the less said about that unfortunate attempt to cash in on Millennial nostalgia, the better.

How the Actual LSAT Compares to Practice Exams

If you signed up for the June ’18 LSAT, your exam is just 10 days away. That’s not even long enough to binge-watch every season of Supernatural. Let’s assume you’ve done everything right up to this point in your studies: drilled down the fundamentals, made your way through the curriculum of each section type and completed multiple practice exams under exam-day conditions. But speaking for all of the law school-bound perfectionists eager to use every opportunity to prepare for the exam, I can tell you that there are some things about your official, LSAC-administered LSAT that just won’t be the same as what you practice. The best you can do now is to read about the particularities of Test Day and give yourself the time to get mentally ready for this oh-so-unique experience.

The DOs and DON’Ts of Taking a Practice Exam

As the June LSAT approaches, you should be shifting gears toward taking more frequent practice tests. However, just taking practice tests is not sufficient for improving your LSAT score (see what we did there??). Here are some quick tips to make sure you’re making the most of your practice tests.

Our Spring Into Summer Sale Starts Now!

Spring … have you ever noticed how the name of that season is a verb? Spring is a time of action, of change, of transition. It’s the time when things happen: winter thaws, foliage blossoms, and — if you’re like me or 23 million other Americans — ragweed pollen allergies boom. Just as “fall” activates the transition from warm to cold, spring is when the climate must undergo its dutiful transition from the slums of winter to the heights of summer.

Are you thinking about applying to law school this cycle? It’s getting to be time to stop thinking and start doing.

June LSAT Takers: Spend a Little Extra Time on This Stuff

The well-prepared test taker, just like the well-coached basketball team, should be best prepared for the most likely outcome. A well-coached basketball team, like, say the Warriors of the Golden State, should have been exceedingly well-prepared for the most likely outcome playing the Rockets of Houston last night.

On Confidence and Time Pressure

The Law School Admissions Test would, of course, be substantially easier if it didn’t impose time limits. Without them, test-takers could mull over RC passages, LR stimuli, and LG intros to their hearts’ content, and debate every answer choice at length. The perceived pressure of the whole testing ordeal would abate considerably, and virtually everyone would be likely to score markedly higher in the end.

Speeding Up on Logic Games

Recently, we went over how to get faster on the Reading Comp section of the LSAT. Now, it’s time to go over Logic Games. Finishing the Games section in time was my biggest struggle when I first took the LSAT, but you can improve your speed on the games section greatly. Here are some tips:

Retaking the July LSAT After the June LSAT?

As we’ve mentioned a time or two on this blog, LSAC has added a July LSAT administration this year. This is great news for people who want a little more flexibility if, for instance, they don’t think they’ll be quite ready by June but they also want to get the test out of the way before September.
