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.

How You Can Start Prepping for the June LSAT Now

So you pulled the trigger and registered for the June LSAT. Things are starting to get real, but it ain’t no thang – you’ve signed up for that LSAT prep course. (You’re taking Blueprint, right?). Last we checked, it’s not anywhere close to June yet (thanks a lot, polar vortex), but still, maybe you can’t help but feel antsy. For those of you looking for a bit of a head start, here are four key things you can do now before your LSAT prep course begins this spring:

How to Start Prepping for the June LSAT Now I: Read all the things!
Reading and processing information is a foundational skill on the LSAT, so the more of this you do, the better. Content-wise, the LSAT draws from a wide range of subjects and disciplines, so aim for more variety than, say, your ex’s Twitter feed. Our advice: just read everything — The Wall Street Journal, Wikipedia, The Onion, Marcel Proust, product labels (speaking of, what is methochloroisothiazolinone, and what is it doing in my shampoo?).

How LSAT Prep is Like an NFL Training Camp

It’s almost August, which means two things: NFL teams have reported to training camp, and Blueprint’s LSAT prep classes for the October LSAT are underway. Even though you don’t need to show up to your first LSAT class in game shape, and you won’t ever be penalized $2 million for failing to show up to “optional” LSAT team workouts, there are some parallels between the two.

How LSAT Prep is Like an NFL Training Camp I: You have to learn the playbook

NFL offenses have notoriously large playbooks. Memorizing their contents is no easy task for the players. But it’s an important one: if you don’t know the plays, you’ll have trouble staying on the field. Studying for the LSAT doesn’t involve nearly as much memorization, fortunately for you. But think of it as building a playbook.

What to Do if You’re Itching to Start October LSAT Prep

Now that we’re well into July, there are only a couple weeks until most of Blueprint’s live summer LSAT Prep classes start. As we told you yesterday, there are a couple October LSAT administrative items that you should take care of as soon as possible.

However, there are probably some eager beavers out there who also want to start studying for the October LSAT this very minute. To you I say: 1) you’re crazy, and 2) I’m here to help.

First of all, you may be tempted to buy some LSAT prep materials from other companies to get a head start on studying. I strongly discourage doing so — not because there is anything wrong with other companies’ materials, but because the Blueprint LSAT Prep method is unique to Blueprint LSAT Prep, and you don’t want to pick up any bad habits or confuse yourself before the class starts.

Update: Blueprint LSAT Prep Movie Quotes Contest Change

Consider this the sequel to Monday’s LSAT blog post. Or at least, its gritty reboot.

Over on the Blueprint LSAT Prep Facebook page, we are running a new contest that involves posting a quote from a law-related film and having our followers guess which movie it’s from. Originally, we gave away a $50 discount off a summer Blueprint online LSAT course or $100 off our summer live LSAT class to the first person to comment with the correct answer. After some thought, we’ve decided to open things up to give more people a chance to win. Here’s the update:

After we post the quote on the Blueprint LSAT Prep Facebook page, followers will have a set amount of time to comment with the movie title.

Blueprint’s Spring LSAT Courses are Open for Enrollment

The February LSAT is only a week-and-a-half away, so if you’re not quite ready for it yet, your next option is the June LSAT. Yes, January isn’t even over yet, and we’re already thinking about the summer. It’s what we do. Plus, some of us have Coachella tickets.

The June LSAT is four-and-a-half months away, and you have until May 17 to register for it. However, the start date of your June LSAT prep should begin long before. Lucky for you, Blueprint LSAT Prep’s spring LSAT courses are open for enrollment right now.

Starting in a few months, Blueprint will be offering 27 spring LSAT classes in 24 locations across the country. Most begin in early April. Some start in March. All of them feature world-class instruction and 112 hours of the most advanced LSAT prep curriculum you can find.

Good News: Blueprint LSAT Prep’s Referral Program is Back

Has the arrival of NFL Sundays immeasurably improved anyone else’s mood? It did mine, and I expect it did for all football fans, even if you started Matthew Stafford over Robert Griffin III in fantasy (good one, dummy).

If you’re not a football fan, however, here’s something else that should get you excited: Blueprint LSAT Prep’s referral program is back. We gave away Gatorade buckets of discounts for our summer LSAT classroom course, and we’re ready to do it again for the fall.

How’s it work? Let’s huddle up:

If you’ve taken a Blueprint LSAT Prep course (in-class) and refer someone else who signs up for our 2012 fall LSAT prep course (again, in-class only), you’ll receive $200 and the person who enrolls will get a $100 discount off his or her LSAT course.

The LSAT Prep Adventures of Cecilia Tsoukalos: Time Out

Y’all ever seen that movie where Brad Pitt plays a soap salesman operating a terrorist cell from the basement of a dilapidated house? As much as I’ll always love Fight Club, Tyler Durden was wrong when he said you are not a unique and beautiful snowflake. Surprise: in the LSAT world you really are! As you’ve made your way through the course it’s likely that you’ve started to figure out which question types you’re consistently performing better on.

If you have your schedule organized to the second and your shoes are arranged by shoelace length, chances are you find ordering games pretty self-explanatory. If you pay attention to minute details and remember when the girl sitting next to you last wore the same outfit, you’re probably owning the Reading Comp section.
