The LSAT Reading Comprehension Trap

Tiffany Sanders, J.D. LSAT Test Prep Leave a Comment

Rarely has an LSAT student approached me and said, “I’m having trouble with Reading Comprehension.” Perhaps that doesn’t surprise you; after all, reading comprehension is a basic skill that we’re tested on again and again, beginning in elementary school. Of the three sections on the LSAT, it’s the one that’s most familiar and most comfortable for many students (even if

Crazy Logic Games

Since something complicated, circular, multi-level and possibly Satanic apparently happened on the February LSAT, LSAT forums and discussions have been awash with questions about how this should impact preparation for the Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT. To a great degree, the answer is “it shouldn’t”. No matter who you were prepping with prior to the February LSAT, you undoubtedly

The Myth of LSAT Timing Problems

The June LSAT and October LSAT administrations are by far the most popular, and with good reason. With optimal application dates in the late fall to early winter, those two test dates provide the best opportunity to get scores in hand and get applications in on schedule. Of course, there are reasons an applicant might choose to take either the

Should I Take an LSAT Prep Class?

Tiffany Sanders, J.D. LSAT Test Prep Leave a Comment

In a nutshell…yes. Of course there are exceptions, but generally speaking, an LSAT prep class will help (if you take it seriously), and your LSAT score is a very important piece of your law school application. At most schools, your LSAT score carries more weight than the GPA it took you our years to attain, so it only makes sense
