Making the Most of Your LSAT Practice Tests

As we come down to the wire here, practice tests are increasingly important as an LSAT practice tool. They’re hugely useful for replicating the experience of a real test, and for exposing you to more and more questions.

But a practice test is perhaps most useful for helping you identify what you don’t know – and if you aren’t testing with that in mind, then you’re far from optimizing those PTs. How can you make sure you’re getting the most out of those grueling hours? By focusing on your errors.

Sound-Tracking Your LSAT Study Montage

I’ve said it once, I’ve said it dozens of times: test prep is a sport, not a science. You’re not studying; you’re training.

And what does every good training montage need? A killer soundtrack.

Choosing the right music can help pump you up and clear your mind. Of course, you don’t want to listen to music while you’re taking a practice test – you have to simulate those game day conditions! But a well-balanced playlist can help you warm up for and wind-down from an LSAT workout. Here are my picks:

Reader Question: What To Do About Inconsistent Practice LSATs?

Here’s a common LSAT question from one of the preppers over at Top-Law-Schools:

I’m having difficulties scoring consistently in each section. What I mean by that is that my score for the overall test will remain in a steady range (166-169), but the score I get per section will fluctuate. For example, I usually get -5 or -7 per RC section but the PT I wrote today, I ended up with a -2. However, I ended up with a -7 on both LR sections today whereas I usually end up with -3. It seems that this PT may have been anomaly, but this trend has been occurring on a few of my PTs. Anyone have tips on how to stay more consistent?

This is one of the more frustrating issues that can arise when preparing for the LSAT.

Celebrate Our Students’ 11-Point Score Increase with an 11% Discount

Today’s a big day for all of us here at Blueprint HQ: we just got the results of our score increase study. We asked independent accounting firm BPE&H to analyze the LSAT practice test results of every first-time classroom Blueprint student from our spring session, and figure out how much they improved from the first practice test on their very first day of class to the best PT in the course of their studies.

The results:
–   Blueprinters average an 11-point increase on LSAT practice tests.
–   87.97% of students increased their score by 5 or more points.
–   58.51% of students increased their score by 10 or more points.
–   25.73% of Blueprint students increased their score by 15 or more points.
