In It Together: Advice on Studying for the LSAT With a Partner

Misery loves company, as they say, so if you have a friend who is also studying for the LSAT you’ve probably already discovered the joys of commiserating about the devious questions created for you by LSAC.

That’s all well and good, but perhaps you and your friend have decided to take your relationship to the next level. Perhaps you’re ready to take the leap and start – yep, you guessed it – studying together.

First of all, you’ll want to find a quiet location. Light some candles. Put on some mood music and open a bottle of wine – wait, scratch that last part. In all seriousness, even though studying with a friend might involve more talking than your normal studying, you’ll still want to find a relatively quiet place to work. You’ll likely be spending a fair amount of time working on questions independently, so it’s important that you’re able to concentrate.

How You Can Start Prepping for the June LSAT Now

So you pulled the trigger and registered for the June LSAT. Things are starting to get real, but it ain’t no thang – you’ve signed up for that LSAT prep course. (You’re taking Blueprint, right?). Last we checked, it’s not anywhere close to June yet (thanks a lot, polar vortex), but still, maybe you can’t help but feel antsy. For those of you looking for a bit of a head start, here are four key things you can do now before your LSAT prep course begins this spring:

How to Start Prepping for the June LSAT Now I: Read all the things!
Reading and processing information is a foundational skill on the LSAT, so the more of this you do, the better. Content-wise, the LSAT draws from a wide range of subjects and disciplines, so aim for more variety than, say, your ex’s Twitter feed. Our advice: just read everything — The Wall Street Journal, Wikipedia, The Onion, Marcel Proust, product labels (speaking of, what is methochloroisothiazolinone, and what is it doing in my shampoo?).

Caption Contest Winners and New LSAT Book Giveaway

Blueprint LSAT Prep really needs to invest in a t-shirt gun. Not only would it make us look cool, but we’d be able to distribute more shirts to deserving recipients — like all of those who participated in last week’s caption contest right here on the LSAT blog.

Alas, we could only pick one commenter taking the October LSAT and one commenter taking the December LSAT to win a brand spankin’ new Blueprint LSAT Prep t-shirt. The competition among October LSAT test-takers was particularly tight, but here are the caption contest champs (along with the photo that they had to caption):

Top 3 Questions I Receive in LSAT Tutoring

After tutoring dozens of students over the last couple years, I’ve noticed that I get asked about a few things over and over. While I hate to risk putting myself out of work by sharing my secrets, I’m catching up on Mad Men on Netflix and every hour of tutoring is an hour that I’m missing out on watching Don’s antics. So without further ado, here are the top three questions I hear in LSAT tutoring, as well as some tips for solving each.

1. Trouble finding deductions in LSAT Logic Games

Deductions are amazing and life-saving for LSAT Logic Games, but they can be a big stumbling block for some students. My tutorees aren’t sure how to find them, and they aren’t sure how to tell when they’ve found all of the deductions and can proceed to the questions.
