Seeing the Big Picture on Comparative Passages

Comparative Reading Comprehension passages are the baby of the LSAT, having been added to the test in 2007 (practically a blink of an eye for an organization that takes a month to score a Scantron).

And so on.

RSVP to the LSAT Webinar This Saturday, November 18!

It isn’t easy to stay motivated and productive through the winter flu season and the rapid approach of the holidays. I know I’m counting down the days until it’s time to give thanks with our families while eating copious amounts of turkey (or for us vegetarians, usually just pie). The good news is that you can take full advantage of Blueprint’s upcoming webinar on the LSAT without even leaving the comfort of your Snuggie.
