Posted by Nikki Siclunov on Sep 30, 2014 4:39:00 PM

With the September 2014 LSAT done and over with, many test-takers will be asking themselves, "Should I cancel my score?" If you find yourself amidst their numbers, don't worry--you're definitely not alone.

First off, let us start by saying that it is very common for LSAT-takers to second-guess themselves and fret--almost from the moment they exit the testing center--about how they did on the test, what their score might be, which questions they got right and wrong, and if they should cancel their score.

How to Approach the LSAT's Evaluate the Argument Question Type

Posted by Ron Gore on Sep 22, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Right about this time in their LSAT prep, people who have already done a great deal of study start to look at some of the less frequently tested subjects. The least of the least in this regard for the Logical Reasoning section is the Evaluate the Argument question type. When students finally discover Evaluate the Argument questions, they panic a little, because at first it seems quite different. It’s not a Weaken or a Strengthen question, but what exactly is it?

LSAT Speed: Three Ways to Pick up Your Pace

Posted by Steve Stein on Sep 18, 2014 11:00:00 AM

When students are preparing for the LSAT, a very common question is “How do I increase my speed?” Test takers often note that if they would do much better if time were not a factor, but that is of course deliberate: The makers of the LSAT designed the test to be both difficult and time-consuming, so for most students speed is a major concern. You can increase your speed by taking control of the test:

1)      Keep moving through the questions. The LSAT is a paper-based test, which can be quite beneficial if you use this format to your advantage. Don’t get bogged down by difficult questions!  You will likely find the toughest questions scattered throughout each section. Save the toughest ones for last, and attack your favorites first, to help ensure that not time is lost “spinning your wheels” working on the hardest questions in the section when there are likely much easier questions available.

The next LSAT is just around the corner, and you suddenly score 5 points below expectations. Is this normal? You are (understandably) freaked out. You call your best friend, your shrink, your LSAT tutor. If you're lucky, you only have to make one phone call. Should you postpone until December? Next year?

LSAT Practice Tests or Practice Sections?

Posted by Jon Denning on Sep 11, 2014 11:29:00 AM

With approximately two weeks to go before the September LSAT it's imperative that you're taking regular, timed practice tests (hopefully at least 2-3 per week leading up to the exam), and equally imperative that you're spending time reviewing your practice tests to determine how you're performing and what areas still need the most work.

In fact, let me start by referencing a post my colleague Nikki made regarding 10 steps to taking practice tests, and look specifically at steps 6 and 7 concerning review:

Posted by Ron Gore on Sep 8, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Often, people studying for the LSAT have trouble figuring out how the test has anything to do with real life, let alone law school or the practice of law.  But the connection is clear with Must Be True questions. It all comes down to the "four corners" rule.

Using the PowerScore LSAT Bibles: Three Month Self-Study Plan

Posted by PowerScore Test Preparation on Sep 5, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Students often ask about combining the LSAT Bibles when they are self-studying. Although our book websites contain general study plans, we thought it might be helpful to put together a more detailed plan for someone starting about 12 weeks out from the LSAT (which is often when people start studying). The plan assumes you have our three LSAT Bibles, our first Training Type Series (which includes LSAT PrepTests 1 through 20), and a plethora of actual LSATs, including the SuperPrep and all of the recent exams.
