Speeding Up on Those Pesky Reading Comp Passages

As the June LSAT approaches, you may be turning your attention to that pesky Reading Comprehension section, the bane of many students who feel that it’s just impossible to get through all four of those passages in a measly 35 minutes. If you relate to that description, you might also be wondering what in the world you can do to improve your score, because you’re already reading the passages as fast as you can.

The Rules for Logic Games Rules

Work More Efficiently, Not Faster

If you’re taking the June LSAT, you’re probably concerned about timing. That’s normal. And here’s some good news: even in the next couple weeks until the LSAT, there’s time to improve.

Would you run to the car, say, “I don’t know exactly where it is, but I know it’s vaguely north of here,” and then drive north as fast as you can? You might not know where you’re going, but you’ll screech those tires around corners and gun it from every stoplight, even if you end up stuck in traffic a few seconds later. Or would you check traffic, plot a route that avoids it, and drive a little more sensibly?

How to Improve Your LSAT Speed and Endurance

With two weeks and change before the February LSAT, it’s tempting to think that there’s no room for improvement. (Maybe not tempting, but nearly unavoidable.) However, the vast majority of studiers can still improve – even in the week before the test.

Up until this point, you’ve likely been focusing on learning how to answer questions correctly. That, obviously, is pretty important. The trick is translating that ability into answering enough questions correctly in 35 minutes to get the score you want. To do that, you need to master the twin arts of speed and endurance.

Let’s take the latter first.
