Prepping for LSAT Prep: How to Get a Head Start on Studying

If you’re planning on taking a class to prepare for the September LSAT (say, perhaps, one of Blueprint’s soon-to-begin classes), you may be wondering what you should be doing to prepare before class starts.

The good news is that you don’t need to do much. The point of an LSAT class is to teach you the skills you’ll need to conquer the LSAT. There are no prerequisites, and the LSAT doesn’t test any kind of specialized knowledge or anything you’d need to start memorizing.

The most important thing you can do before LSAT class starts, then, is to have fun. Once class starts, you’re going to have to work your, uh, donkey off. You’ll have homework to do and practice tests to review. Variables from LSAT Logic Games will dance through your dreams, and you’ll be that person who always points out the flawed logic in everything your (soon to be former) friends say.

Caption Contest for a Free Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games

Blueprint LSAT Prep’s latest caption contest is all business in the front, party in the back.

That’s because you’re just one funny comment away from winning a free copy of our LSAT book, The Blueprint for LSAT Logic Games. All you have to do is submit a funny, LSAT or prelaw-related caption for the above photo. We’ll pick our favorite one, and the lucky scribe will win a free LSAT book. Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing, right?

The key is to be creative. Here are some past examples of Most Strongly Supported caption contest winners, to give you an idea.

We’ll announce the winner next week right here on the LSAT blog.

If you’ve already won a caption contest on the LSAT blog before, sorry, but you’re not eligible.

Good Luck on the 2014 June LSAT!

On behalf of everyone at Blueprint LSAT Prep, we’d like to wish everyone taking the June LSAT the best of luck! That goes double for Blueprint LSAT Prep students, whom we’re not afraid to admit we’re rootin’ for. After all, we taught you everything we know about the LSAT. Make us proud!

When you’re done with the June LSAT, make sure to come right back here to the LSAT blog to discuss it. We’ll have our 2014 June LSAT Instant Recap up sometime this afternoon, and although we can’t talk about any of the details (experimental sections, Reading Comp passages, etc.), we can talk about how difficult you found the test, all the crazy shenanigans from your LSAT testing center, etc.

It’ll be fun. It’ll be informative. And, most importantly, it’ll be after you’ve crushed the June LSAT.

How to Get in Optimal Test-Taking Mode for the June LSAT

You’ve spent a lot time preparing for the June LSAT (hopefully). Now that we’re down to crunch time, it’s time to start thinking about the little things that can make a big difference. And as it turns out, that list boils mainly down to basic human needs. Sure, you’ve been sleeping and eating for the past few decades without any help from us, but there are a couple special considerations when it comes to the LSAT – here’s what you need to know.

Key #1 to Getting in Optimal June LSAT Test-Taking Mode: Sleep

Of course, it’s important to be well-rested on LSAT test day. June test-takers are lucky in that you don’t need to worry about waking up early for the exam – every other administration of the LSAT starts at 8:30 a.m.!

You’ve Got One Month Left to Register for the June LSAT

We’re one month away from the June LSAT registration deadline. If you think this is a lot of time, then you’re indulging in some false comfort.

You need to sign up early if you want to get a decent LSAT test center before they all fill up. Dilly dally, and you could get stuck with a hole in the wall three counties over with a former hall monitor for a proctor who just can’t wait to make your day resemble something out of a Turkish prison.

In the recent past, LSAT proctors – high on power and ineptitude – have written up students for innocently touching their pencils during the break, called time five minutes early, and confiscated analog wristwatches. On the other hand, a good LSAT proctor – usually a law student who’s slogged through an LSAT or three herself – will make your day a delight.

The Keys to Becoming an LSAT Diagramming Master

Diagramming is an essential skill on the LSAT, but it’s also a bit like speaking a foreign language. At first you will feel awkward and clumsy and slow; then suddenly you’re spitting out full sentences and fully understanding the answers and you wonder why you ever had such a problem with it.

What is diagramming and why is it important on the LSAT?

Diagramming is a shorthand way of representing conditional statements (otherwise known as if-then statements). I don’t have enough space to fully get into the basics here, but if you’re studying for the LSAT and you’re not comfortable or familiar with conditional logic, you should do yourself a solid and look it up.

Diagramming crops up mainly on the Logical Reasoning sections and on Logic Games (for instance, Tanika is in every photo that Morlanda is in).
