From the Vaults: 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.

Ack! It’s the February LSAT! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!

The February LSAT is coming up. Fast. If next Saturday’s test is in your plans, it’s time for you to take lots of LSAT practice tests and work on your plan for game day. Here are some principles to keep in mind.

Not every question is equal.

It’s tempting to divide the 35 minutes you have for each section by the number of questions in that section to figure out how long you have for each question. If you’re shooting to do every question (more on that later), you’ll get an accurate average time, but it’s just that: an average. Nothing more.

The LSAT rubber meets the road.

I taught Lesson 13 to one set of students last night and will teach that same lesson to another set of students the day after tomorrow. In Blueprint world, that’s where we reach the end of new subject matter, and the rest of the course is devoted to shoring up understanding of that subject matter and the nuts and bolts of taking the test.

This period of transition is important, but it’s also jarring. No less important is the fact that it occurs each class very close to test day. To wit, at the time this post was written, there were twenty six days left until the September exam. So, here’s a brief rundown of what you ought to do:

Slow down there, LSAT student!

At the beginning of Blueprint LSAT Prep’s courses, many students are understandably more than a little anxious about timing. There are a whole lot of questions on that sucker; how will they ever be able to get through them all?! And, to be honest, that anxiety will likely continue for a large portion of the course. That said, it’s a bad idea to stress about how quickly you’re getting through questions during the first half (or so) of your course, and here’s why.

Your Final Weeks of Study, Logic Games Edition

A couple days ago, we covered how to work on Reading Comprehension as you shift from learning the basics to reviewing and working on timing. Yesterday, we took a look at Logical Reasoning. So, you guessed it, today’s all about those games.

The Logic of Skipping a Game

As the song goes, “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.” In a perfect world, you’d be able to finish all four Logic Games in a section within the given time, but sometimes that’s just not in the cards.
