How long should you study for the LSAT?
Give yourself AT LEAST three months to prepare for the LSAT.
Complete a Prep Course that offers in-class practice exams in addition to access to at least 20 practice test.
Should I take a LSAT Prep Course?
Yes, you should take a LSAT Prep Course. The LSAT is a new subject matter that should not be conquered alone. A LSAT Prep Course is an investment that you will receive a huge return on if you use your prep course to its full advantage.
What if I cannot afford a prep course?
There are many more flexible LSAT Prep options than there used to be. As such, there are many LSAT Prep Scholarships, Payments Plans and free apps that can assist with any financial barriers. As such, visit our website to receive LSAT Prep Discount Codes — www.jastalkslaw.com
Which Prep Course should I take?
Complete a Prep Course that gives access to question type practice sections. For example, if assumption logical reasoning questions are your weak point, you should be completing many timed assumption sections. Accordingly, complete a LSAT Prep Course with a strong track record and materials — don’t just take the oldest prep course that exists or the prep course your college offers. Moreover, a Law Student probably should not be teaching your prep course (they have their studies to worry about and will not be as available as others). Do your research.
What should I know before I start studying for the LSAT?
Lawyers say the “practice” of law for a reason. As such, you should replace the word “study” with “practice.” Learning the question type approaches in Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension are only a part of the “battle.” As such, studying is 30% of preparing for the LSAT, while practicing is 70%. Before test day, you should complete at least 20 Practice Test/Sections and review the answers and explanations for the wrong AND right questions — you could have got a question right for the wrong reason.
How and when do I register for the LSAT?
Visit LSAC.org to register for the LSAT. The December LSAT’s regular registration deadline is October 18th, 2017. The late registration deadline is October 25th, 2017. Register for the LSAT as soon as the registration opens — the longer you wait, the more you risk your closest LSAT testing location “selling out.” Once that happens, you are forced to take your LSAT at a different location which can equate to a longer drive, a hotel stay and/or flight.
