Getting to Yes on the LSAT

Before you start law school, the one book everyone will tell you to read is Getting to Maybe. As its subtitle How to Excel on Law School Exams might suggest, it’s a tract on how to excel on law school exams. Its essential thesis is that up to law school, most exams lavishly award students who can identify the “right” answer. But a law school exam — in which complex fact patterns are devised with no clear “right” answer, requiring students to apply legal analysis to both sides of an issue — is a different beast that requires a different approach. The book describes how to live and thrive in this land of “maybe” in which law school exams exist.

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.

On the LSAT, Confidence Is Key

Something that rarely gets discussed in LSAT preparation, despite being extremely important, is the role that an individual’s confidence plays in their success. We talk at length about how to solve questions correctly, and how to manage time on particular sections. But another, ever-present factor that can significantly impact an LSAT outcome is confidence.
