3 Point-Saving LSAT Tips
There’s only one week until the June 2017 LSAT. This is typically when test jitters start to set in. If you find yourself struggling to gain those last few points you need for your dream school, here are some point-saving LSAT tips for the next week!
3 Point-Saving LSAT Tips
1. Analyze your incorrect answers to see if you consistently get the same types of problem wrong.
Your incorrect answers are invaluable in shaping your last week of prep. After scoring a practice test, look and see if you consistently get certain types of problems wrong. For example, you might notice that you only get one of the 6 strengthen/weaken questions correct in your two Logical Reasoning sections. Focusing on just these types of questions moving forward can help you gain more points than non-specific study will. If you get every assumption question correct, there’s little value in going over them again. Shore up your weak points, and your score will improve.
2. Compartmentalize the questions you struggle with.
If you really struggle with a particular type of question, even after more focused study, develop a strategy for it on test day. For example, if a certain type of Logic Game gives you fits, do it last. This is a huge point-saving LSAT tip. Not only will this help you build confidence by tackling questions you know, but you are more likely to see all the questions in a given section if you don’t agonize over a single trouble spot. All the questions are worth the same amount of points, so skip any that give you too much pause. If you have time at the end, go back and attempt to answer. If you don’t, at least you saw more questions that you have a better chance of getting right.
3. Take full, timed LSATs before your administration.
You might be surprised how many students do not do this! It is not enough to just master the material of each section. You also must be able to mentally function through the marathon of a timed LSAT. If you have not done so yet, you still have time. Make sure to sit for an entire LSAT, under testing conditions, several times before your administration so you’re ready for the slog. Developing test-taking endurance is another way to pick up valuable points. Mental fatigue is a common reason for poor performance on the LSAT. Make sure to work this point-saving LSAT tip into your preparation, even if you only have time for one or two full exams.
It is not too late to incorporate these point-saving LSAT tips into your preparation. Even a week of these techniques can yield results!
