About the LSAT
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is unlike any test you've ever taken in your academic career. The LSAT is a skills-based exam designed to test the critical reading and analytical thinking skills that are crucial for success in law school. Before you begin your LSAT prep, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the exam so you can be prepared for what is on the LSAT.
Frequently Asked Questions
How to study for the LSAT?
How you study for the LSAT depends on your goals, preferred study style, schedule, and more. The best way to study for the LSAT is to find a method that works for you, make a plan, and stick with it. You may want to study in a traditional classroom, live online, on your own, or even with a tutor. Your LSAT study plan should include learning strategies for every question type, as well as timing practice.
How hard is the LSAT?
The answer to "how hard is the LSAT?" is "it depends". The LSAT is unlike any exam you may have encountered in your undergraduate career. LSAT questions ask you to use your critical reading and thinking skills, as well as formal logic. At its core, the LSAT is a skills-based test, which means that you can learn and practice efficient strategies to answer every question you'll see on test day.
When to take the LSAT?
When you take the LSAT depends on when you'll be applying to law school. As a general rule, you'll want to take it no later than the January administration. For example, if you plan on attending law school in September 2019, you'll want to take the LSAT no later than January 2019 so your application is on time for most schools' deadlines. Depending on your schedule and when you'll have time to study, you may want to test over the summer in June or July.
How long to study for LSAT?
How long you'll spend studying for the LSAT depends on where you start, what your target score is, and what your schedule is. Because the LSAT is a skills-based test, you'll want to prep over several weeks or months so you can learn how to apply LSAT strategies efficiently. Practice with real, released LSATs like the ones in your Kaplan course to practice until you are consistently reaching your goal score.
What kind of questions are on the LSAT?
There are three multiple-choice question types in the LSAT: reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and analytical reasoning, also known as "logic games". LSAT questions measure your ability to read and understand complex texts, your ability to draw reasonable inferences, and your ability to evaluate arguments. You don't need any prior knowledge for the LSAT, but you will need to think critically under time constraints.
