The December LSAT is just over five weeks away. If you’ve procrastinated your preparation or decided at the last minute to register for the test, time is tight. In fact, you’re probably not going to be able to achieve your maximum possible score in the time remaining. If you’re not applying to law school this cycle and you haven’t scored comfortably above your target on a practice test, you should probably hold off, give yourself time to fully prepare and take the test in 2015.
That said, we don’t live in a perfect world. Time crunches happen. If your timeline requires taking the December LSAT and you’re just getting started, you can still make a significant improvement. The key is to identify a small number of skills that will net you a relatively large number of correct answers and focus on those.
In part, of course, that means understanding which question types you’ve most commonly missed, but there’s much more to it than that. Optimizing your preparation–especially in a short period of time–means analyzing far more than whether its Assumption questions or Parallel Reasoning that hang you up.
A few of the key issues you need to consider are:
- In which sections do you have the most points to gain?
- Which question types within each section offer the greatest opportunity for improvement?
- How many points are associated with those possible gains?
- Which skills will assist you in correctly answering more than one question type?
- Which of those skills are most attainable in the time remaining?
- What other factors determine the questions you’re missing?
Sorting all of that out under time pressure can be overwhelming, meaning that many students who are feeling rushed don’t make good decisions about where to focus their efforts.
