Classroom, Live Online, On Demand, or Tutoring—How to Choose an LSAT Prep Course

Scorpios, Geminis, INTJ, ESTP, introvert, extrovert or however you choose to identify, we can all admit we’re unique and learn differently. Some of us are morning people, others are more productive with their laptop propped up in bed, and still others can only find time to themselves on their commute to work. Fortunately, Blueprint LSAT understood this and decided to meet students where they are. You’re not basic, so why should your test prep be? Below we breakdown the three LSAT prep courses we offer to help you find your perfect option. Plus, all these courses for the January 2019 LSAT are on sale this week only!

Save Big on All Three of Our Courses with the January LSAT Sale

Like the proverbial floodgates, law schools nationwide have officially opened up the 2018-19 admissions cycle. Now every law school is accepting applications from thousands of law school hopefuls, armed with nothing but an LSAT score, a GPA, and a dream.

But, like the tides spilling from recently opened floodgates, these applications are rolling. As in, the schools are handing out seats in their classes of 2022 to applicants as we speak.

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.

Flawctober: The Perception vs. Reality Fallacy

“Gwyneth Paltrow says that the best way to cure a cold is to drink a big mug of peppermint tea mixed with apple cider vinegar, so anyone beginning to feel cold symptoms should imbibe this mixture as a surefire way of making themselves feel better.”

“A newspaper conducted a survey of 100 football fans, 75% of whom said that football-related brain damage is not a serious concern for professional football players. One can thus conclude that NFL players have nothing to worry about when it comes to whether their sport of choice is harming their brains.”

Get Some Practice Playing the Numbers

When someone tells you to “play the numbers” in a Logic Game, does your mind go blank, or even worse, to some kind of ill-conceived gambling scheme? If you’re not yet comfortable with playing the numbers, then you’re in luck (with your LSAT aspirations at least). Playing the numbers is mainly going to be a method deployed on overbooked and underbooked logic games. It’s a way to determine the parameters of the game (the smallest and largest numbers you can use while applying all of the game’s rules). This allows you to narrow down the game to a few possible scenarios. Let’s look at a couple examples to see how you would “play the numbers” in an actual game.

Taking the LSAT in 2019? You May as Well Take the July Exam

As we noted last week, LSAC has finally revealed details about the testing schedule for next year, including the logistics for how the transition to an electronic test will work. If you’re considering taking the test next year, this is a good time to hammer out exactly what timeline you intend for your test.

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: The “Curve”

As a humanities major, I’m not particularly familiar with the concept of curves. So, when I learned the LSAT was curved back in the day, I didn’t really know what it meant (I did, however, get the sense that I wouldn’t benefit from the same grade inflation I’d been lucky enough o experience during undergrad).

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: Reading Comprehension

Learning to take the LSAT can sometimes feel like a demoralizing exercise that’s completely inapplicable to the rest of your life (or so I hear). However, future law students can rest assured that they will very much be putting their Reading Comprehension skills to use in each of their core law school classes. While the first passage of the Reading Comp section on the September LSAT gave a lot of students trouble, it’s a passage about a famous Supreme Court case which can perfectly illustrate the use of Reading Comp methods in your upcoming legal studies.
