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). As the name would suggest, the questions focus on comparing the two passages: Which of these is supported by one passage but not the other? Which is something that both authors have in common? And so on.

Using Practice Exams to Experiment with Your Approach

I broke my hand recently. Well, technically, I broke my hand two-and-a-half weeks ago, then spent the next fortnight icing my swollen hand and swelling my dumb head with false hope that my hand wasn’t broken.

When I finally got it checked out by a doctor, I found out there are two ways to deal with a potentially broken hand. The first way is to get it checked out immediately, allowing a medical professional to set it and ensure that it heals properly. But then you have to spend about a month in a cast.

Having trouble with Sufficient and Necessary Qs? Try looking out for new info

Sufficient and necessary assumption questions are asking about two very different types of assumptions, but both question types have something in common: The conclusion almost always introduces new information, and finding the correct answer requires identifying and handling that new information appropriately. Sufficient Assumptions Almost all sufficient assumption questions have new information in the conclusion

All the deals without any of the human interaction or potential for stampedes — what could be better?

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 read it quickly and chuckled at the test takers who had trouble following the somewhat onerous but not terribly complicated test day instructions. 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.
