How to Review a Practice Exam

We’re getting into the last month before another LSAT, and that means practice tests are absolutely essential to folks preparing for the exam. Any student who’s taken a practice test is familiar with the unnerving process of calculating your own practice exam score. However, the LSAT practice exams are not like online quizzes where you inevitably find out that you would be a Hufflepuff in Harry Potter, and then move on with your day. Scoring is really just the first step in reviewing a practice exam if you want to reap the greatest benefit from your practice.

One Last Piece of Advice …

I’ve been writing blog posts about the LSAT regularly for more than six years, and this is my last one, at least for now, as I move on to new things. It’s been fun, but I won’t bore you with stories about the olden times when logic games were on one page each and you had to bring an extra-sharp pencil to write super small in the margins.

Does the LSAT let the right kind of people into law school?

A few days ago, the Internet algorithms that know all too much about me directed me to this Vice article about taking the LSAT with no prep.

I was also amused but not surprised to learn that LSAC employs “secret shopper” test takers to make sure that the proctors enforce regulations. But ultimately I found it a relatively flimsy premise for an article and moved on with my oh-so-exciting weekend.
