Why you should take the LSAT in June (and not in September)

Screen Shot 2014 04 18 at 10.11.35 AM resized 600

It's almost May. By now, you've probably started a test prep course, bought the Bible Trilogy, and/or invested a considerable amount of money purchasing PrepTests. You may have even started working with a tutor. If you are seeing an uptick in your practice test scores, that's awesome. Chances are, however, that you aren't anywhere near where you hope to be in June. Not before long, you will start debating whether to put it all off until September (if you haven't already). It's easy to rationalize such a decision: if you're still in school, you can focus on your finals without the added aggravation of yet another test, arguably more important than any of them. Plus, you'll have the whole summer to study, and besides - what else are you going to do on the beach?

LSAT Test Mentality: Upgrade Your Brain


Are you stressed out about the LSAT? Do you dread taking practice tests? Or how about scoring a practice test? Don't kid yourself. Everyone suffers from some degree of test anxiety. It's only natural, and having a healthy recognition of the gravity of the test can be a very helpful motivator. But let me talk to you for a moment about an LSAT prep superpower you probably don't even know you have. 

LSAT Section Strategy, Part 2: Reading Comprehension

This is the second installment in my three-part examination of how to best approach each section on the LSAT. The first discussion focused on Logic Games and how an informed test taker attacks that section, and in this post we’re moving on to the other single-section question type: Reading Comprehension. Before we dive in to Reading Comp, however, let me take a moment to reiterate why I’m making these suggestions, and why I believe you’ll find them valuable. Here’s how the initial conversation began:

LSAT and the Power of Distraction

LSAT distractions

With roughly two months until the June 2014 LSAT, most of you will soon enter test-taking mode. You will probably take anywhere from 10 to 20 timed practice tests during that time, and - if done correctly - such a regimen will help improve your score. Not every score will be higher than the one before. The important thing is to learn from your mistakes, improve your stamina, and take it easy.

Everyday LSAT: Dig into Supreme Court Oral Arguments

A question I get frequently is what to do when you want to continue studying for the LSAT but you need a break from drills and questions. One fantastic resource is the Oyez Project, an online archive of Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) oral arguments, currently maintained by the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law. In this post, I'll give you a short introduction to the Oyez Project and links to a few of the most interesting oral arguments available on the site.This is the first post in a series. Periodically, I'll highlight other cases that you might find interesting.

LSAT Section Strategy, Part 1: Logic Games

There is a fundamental truth about test takers when it comes to the LSAT: everyone is different. That is, everyone who sits down with this exam will have unique strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and, ultimately, ways in which they can optimize their performance in every section. And while that certainly affects how it is that people prepare—where they should devote their time and effort when studying—I think it also dictates how test takers should behave during the actual test. In this three-part blog series, we will look at each of the three question/section types on the LSAT, and consider exactly how an informed test taker should attack each type. This particular post will examine LSAT Logic Games.

LSAT: Get Your Daily Fix

LSAT addiction

We know you secretly want it: your daily LSAT fix. No, you don't need to call your dealer or risk a felony charge. But, let's face it: the LSAT is a controlled substance, and quantities are limited. There are only 7100 LSAT questions as of March 2014, and they are expensive. To purchase all 71 practice tests in existence, it will cost you almost $400 (roughly 1/3 of the price of a Full-length LSAT course). And, even if you are taking one of our Full-length or Live-online LSAT courses, which provide access to all 7100 questions, you may still want some variety from the daily grind. Maximizing your LSAT score sometimes requires taking a break from the LSAT.
