So How Much Should I Really Be Studying for the LSAT?

Summertime and the prepppin’ is easy. Well, sort of. On the one hand you have tons of time now that you’re not in school (unless you’re a working man or woman), but on the other hand it’s very easy to overdo it. Here are my tips for getting the most out of your LSAT prep this summer.

Managing LSAT Stress with Self-Care

Studying for the LSAT is like getting ready for an athletic event. To perform at your best, your body and mind need to be sharp. Here are some tips from a veteran LSAT instructor.

1. Get enough sleep

Nothing is more important. You need to sleep or else all sorts of things will go wrong with your body and ability to learn. Lack of sleep negatively affects your intelligence.

Your Official One-Month LSAT Study Plan

As May rolls on and spring makes its entrance (very slowly, in the case of the Northeast), we are now officially one month from the June LSAT. If that sounds scary to you, it shouldn’t—a month is actually still quite a lot of time to prepare for the LSAT, and you can improve your score pretty significantly during that time. Here’s what to do to ensure you’re making the most of it.

Studying for the LSAT with Your Full, Busy Life

As an LSAT instructor, I frequently field questions from LSAT hopefuls who are wondering how to balance studying for the LSAT with their busy schedules.

After all, studying for the LSAT is essentially a part-time job on top of all your normal activities—if you’re in the live Blueprint class, for instance, you’re probably spending 8-12 hours per week in class, and that’s not even counting the time you spend doing homework.

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.

LSAT On the Go with Blueprint’s iOS App

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, you’ve probably heard that Blueprint has an iOS app now. If you mentally diagrammed that last sentence, congratulations, you’re studying for the LSAT.

Today, we’ll talk about what the app does and how to use it to help you study. Our app is only for current students, so if you want to use it you’ll have to sign up for a Blueprint in-person or online course.

In the app, you can watch lesson videos, do homework, score homework, get breakdowns of how the homework went including full explanations, take practice tests and score practice tests. Everything you do will earn your points and advance your status on the Greatest Chain of Being — you’ll start with pretty much no status and end up someplace much better.
