The Rules for Logic Games Rules

There are just ten days left until the February LSAT, and at this point your methods for tackling Logic Games are pretty much settled. However, there’s still time to improve your speed on this all-important section.

As you know, one of the first steps when starting a Logic Game is to visually represent each rule so that you don’t have to keep re-reading the text.

How to Review a Practice Exam

When you finish a 3.5 hour-long practice test, the last thing you want to do after scoring it is to go over the questions you got wrong. But reviewing practice tests is ridiculously important. It’s as valuable as taking the practice tests in the first place, if you go about it strategically.

First of all, don’t review your test right after you score it. You’re tired and frustrated – at least in my personal experience. I recommend reviewing each test the next day.

The Day After the Day After

You shut your friends and family out of your life. You gave up that thing that was way too distracting. (Yes, we know about that thing. Blueprint is the Santa Claus of test preparation.) You studied and studied and studied. You pleaded with fate or whatever higher power you believe in. Maybe you even pleaded with a higher power you don’t believe in. In short, you turned your happy life upside down over a multiple-choice test. That test happened this past Saturday.

A Pre-LSAT Pep Talk

You’ve waited for it. You’ve dreamt about it. You’ve lost friends incessantly talking about it and you don’t mind.

And here it is.

With the LSAT just hours away, students often wonder how to spend that last anxious day. Cram? Wind down? I’ve heard recommendations from all across the spectrum, and I think there’s some merit to each, but here I’ll divulge my tried-and-true personal strategy.

The Home Stretch

The LSAT is this Saturday. Here’s what you should do in your last week of LSAT prep.

1. Focus on Logic Games

If you aren’t getting all or nearly all of the Logic Games questions right, your best bet for improvement in this final stretch is to devote most of your time to Logic Games. It’s much easier to see improvements in a short amount of time on Logic Games than any other section.

Speed up!

There is a lot to learn for the LSAT, from diagramming conditionals, to memorizing flaw categories, to wrangling with combo games. The December LSAT is fast approaching, and hopefully students taking the test next month will be familiar with most of the material at this point.

Lessons Learned From the October 2015 LSAT

October LSAT scores came out last week. That means the October LSAT was released into the wild. I was perhaps a little bit too excited to sit down with a timer and take it — it had been a little while since I last took a full test timed. Here’s my overall impression.

October LSAT: The Morning Cometh

Those taking the October 2015 LSAT have run the gauntlet and emerged on the other side, (hopefully) relatively unscathed. As post-LSAT-celebration hangovers subside, let’s delve into the chatter we’ve heard about the October 2015 LSAT. We’ve heard multiple reports that one of the Logical Reasoning sections was especially difficult, which is unusual – we often hear that there were a couple really tricky Logical Reasoning questions on the test, but it’s atypical to hear that an overall section was especially tough. In addition, we’ve heard rumors that there were no Main Point questions in Logical Reasoning, which doesn’t often happen – Main Point questions are far from the most common question type, but you can generally count on at least a few per test.
