Why Aren’t My Practice Test Scores Improving?

Hey, you baseball players out there – remember a year or two after tee-ball when your coach took you aside and told you that what you thought of as your graceful Hammer-of-Thor swing was, in fact, rubbish? And then you had to completely reconstruct your approach? Well, the process of studying for the LSAT is a little like that – here’s how.

The LSAT is a skills-based test with no prior knowledge required. This means that when you take your first diagnostic test, you’re naturally going to be coming up with strategies and methods and heuristics on the fly. This is great in the fight-or-flight circumstance that is that diagnostic test, but when you think about it, it’s obvious that the approach you conjure up under pressure is unlikely to be perfectly aligned with the most efficient and effective methods.

Catching Up if Your LSAT Class has Already Started

Here we are, the October LSAT is ten weeks away, and Blueprint LSAT Prep classes have mostly started. (See below for a list of classes that started this weekend.) Before you despair and ask your friends to keep sharp objects away from you, let us reassure you: It’s not too late to sign up! Even if the class of your dreams started over the weekend, you’ll be able to catch up, no sweat. Here’s how.

The first class session is a practice test. If you miss this session, you won’t miss out on any material you need to learn. You can take the test on your own instead, timing sections for yourself.

The process is quite simple. Find a quiet place to work. Open Practice Exam One (you can print the test and answer sheet from your myBlueprint online account if you haven’t received your books), set a timer for 35 minutes, and do the first section. When time’s up, stop work.

My First Starbucks Date with the LSAT

Well, there I was at Starbucks. Kids running around, people ordering their drinks in Starbucks-ese, and me, taking my first practice LSAT. I decided to take my first practice test cold. I didn’t know anything about the test. Nada. As luck would have it, Logic Games was my first section.

I better do well. This is like…an IQ test. You can’t study for those things. I think I heard that somewhere. Oprah, or was it Maury? Wait. Of course it isn’t Maury. It’s Oprah, duh. Anyway, focus! There’s only 35 minutes left.

Back when I took the test, logic games were perfectly fitted on a single page. There was no white space whispering, “Hey, write on me, please. It might help you. I like notes.”
