If you’re thinking about going to law school or writing the LSAT here’s a few ideas on where to start.
Many students who are considering taking the LSAT feel a bit lost as to where to get started. There are tonnes of LSAT prep materials, courses, books, online courses and more out there and it can all be a bit overwhelming. Where do you start?
You probably don’t want to drop a lot of cash on an expensive LSAT course to start with. For one thing, you may be a natural and so you won’t need the extra help. Also, it’s probably better to get an idea as to the kind of help you need first before spending anything on LSAT prep courses. You may only need a few hours of LSAT tutoring to help you brush up on one or two areas.
So to start with, take a test. If you want to know what the LSAT is like, try it out. There’s plenty of practice test books and you can even find a few free LSAT exams. Print one out, sit down and work through it. Just keep in mind that your first attempt may not be easy and your score likely will not be that high. Don’t worry, this can improve significantly. Be especially aware that the logic games section can be intimidating if you have never tried it before.
Normally, it is important to do all of your LSAT practice tests under timed conditions but for your first one take some extra time and work through each of the questions to give yourself an idea as to what it’s like. Don’t worry too much about your LSAT score, it’s not going to be the best you can do and there is a lot you can improve on with some basic lessons in LSAT test taking.
If you happen to be lucky enough to have aced the LSAT on your first try you may not need any extra help. If this is the case, try a couple more tests under actual timed conditions just to make sure you’re set.
If you didn’t do as well as you’d like, you can try some of our basic LSAT tutorials to get you started on improving your score. Once you’ve got a basic idea as to how to set up your games and approach most of the question types, try some more practice exams.
