What to Do During October LSAT Crunch Time

You have about three and a half weeks before the October LSAT. It’s crunch time. But you’re probably busy with school, work, or both. What to do, what to do? Well, here are some tips.

Focus On Logic Games

The Logic Games section is the most learnable part of the LSAT. There’s nothing optional about the games strategies you’ve learned. You have to know and master all of them. You don’t have the time to freestyle it. Don’t know the difference between an overbooked and an underbooked game, and why it matters? Go back and review. Don’t know how to play the numbers? Go back and review.

Balancing Studying for the LSAT with School

The October LSAT about six weeks away. You’ve mastered ordering games and are a pro at linking conditionals. But you’re still trying to get your head around all of the flaw categories and your timing is way off. You’re thinking it’s time to ramp up your study schedule. But there’s also this other item looming on your calendar: school.

Your senior year of college is about to start, and you have a lot of to-dos. You have to get the mini-fridge out of storage, which is a total hassle because Gary will say you can borrow his car but then he’ll totally flake on you all Sunday, and you’ll be like, “What the heck, Gary, my brews are only getting warmer over here.” Then you’ll have to decide whether you’re going to stick with the top-bun you’ve been rocking over the summer. Sure, Gary will give you flak about it, but what does Gary know about style? The guy wears Gap jeans.

Tips to Improve Your LSAT Study Habits (and LSAT Score)

LSAT prep season is getting in full swing. This winter, per usual, was a quiet time in the pre-law world; few people sit for the February LSAT, and there’s a lull of activity in the early months of the year. But after a busier spring of June LSAT prep, even more people are gearing up for the October. So what should you do if you’re planning on taking the test in a few months? Well, this may sound obvious, but you should study. You should study frequently, you should study well, you should study regularly. You should study.

LSAT Study Tip I: Do the work

For those of you taking an LSAT prep course, whether online or in-person, it’s not enough to just do the lessons.

Have you been LSAT Naughty or LSAT Nice?

You better watch out, because LSAT Santa is coming to town. Have you been naughty or nice? If you’ve been nice, you’ll get a great LSAT score in your stocking. If you’ve been naughty, you’ll go to business school.

Doing Your Homework Quickly – NAUGHTY – Rushing your homework without understanding why you missed the questions you did means that you won’t be learning from your mistakes. This will make LSAT Santa angry and he’ll fill your stocking with coal.

Doing Your Homework Thoroughly – NICE – Taking your time to fully understand every question, and then taking the time to review your misses means you’ll be less likely to miss similar questions in the future. LSAT Santa will be happy and he’ll fill your stocking with scholarship money.

At the Starting Gate of Your LSAT Class

Blueprint classes for the February LSAT are kicking off this week, and students across the U.S. are encountering the LSAT for the first time, the start of a relationship that over the next few months will blossom (hopefully) into a full blown, Hugh Grant-worthy love affair with the logic of the LSAT.

And while the February LSAT may seem distant and these first lessons straightforward and somewhat introductory, it’s of the utmost importance that you gain a solid understanding of these initial concepts. The methods in the class build upon themselves. These first few lessons provide the foundation for everything to come; not fully understanding validity or logical force will do more than interfere with your success on Must Be True questions, it will destroy your ability to spot a flawed argument, much less strengthen/weaken one, not to mention finding sufficient and necessary assumptions.
