Syllabus

Preparing for the LSAT

You may have heard that you can't study for the LSAT. But that's just not true! There are a bunch of general things you can do to prepare for the LSAT, and the more time you spend preparing, the better your scores will be. In the first lesson, you'll learn how to relax when you start feeling panicky on test day. You'll also review specific tips on how to approach LSAT question types, how to eliminate the wrong answers that tests try to entice you to choose, how to guess when you're not sure of the right answer, and how much time to spend on each question. After you've completed this lesson, you'll be ready to learn more about the specific questions, starting with reading comprehension.

Overcoming the Reading Comprehension Section

You've been reading since you were a kid, but that's not enough experience to get you ready for the LSAT reading comprehension passages. There's more to these babies than just reading a passage and working through its questions, and in this lesson, you'll go over the tools you need to develop your own personal reading strategy. You'll glide through even the most sleep-producing reading topics by focusing on what's important and ignoring what's not. You'll see how to eliminate answers that hook other unprepared test-takers. And you'll find out how to spot the distracters the test-makers use to make wrong answers seem right.

Evaluating Reading Comprehension Question Types

LSAT reading comprehension questions fall into three major types: main theme synthesis, specific information, and inference. In this lesson, you'll take an in-depth look at the characteristics of and approaches to each of the question types so you'll know how to recognize them and handle them with ease.

Effective Reading for the LSAT

Reading LSAT passages isn't the same as reading for pleasure or even reading for school. In this lesson, you'll go through some time-tested technique for approaching passages. The lesson will go over what to do while you read the passage to prepare yourself for each LSAT reading question type so when it comes time to provide answers, you're all set!

Summing Up the Reading Comprehension Section

In this lesson, you'll draw on everything you've learned about reading comprehension so far and put it all together. Through careful analysis of previous LSAT reading passages, you'll develop a system for the reading comprehension section that allows you to focus on what's important and overlook what's not. You'll move through the section more quickly than you thought you could!

Practicing LSAT Reading Comprehension Questions

Because practice makes perfect, in this lesson, you'll continue to instill the concepts you've learned so far by thoroughly examining another reading comprehension passage from a prior LSAT test. You'll find out exactly how to read through the passage and how to methodically approach each question.

Analyzing Logical Reasoning Questions

You may not have seen the LSAT logical reasoning questions before. Even though they may be unfamiliar, by the time you've completed this lesson and the next few, you'll know just how to tackle them. They may just become your favorite LSAT test questions! In this lesson, you'll review the elements of a logical argument and the major types of inductive arguments you'll see on the LSAT.

Examining Logical Reasoning Question Types

There are several different types of logical reasoning questions. In this lesson, you'll take an overview of all of them: strengthen or weaken conclusions, drawing conclusions from premises, assumptions, inferences, and method of reasoning. You'll learn how the general qualities of each question type and how to recognize each one in the LSAT logical reasoning section.

Mastering Strengthen/Weaken the Argument and Method of Reasoning Questions

This lesson will go into a little more detail about how to answer questions that ask you to strengthen or weaken conclusions and questions that ask you about methods of reasoning. You'll learn how to pick out the type of argument the author makes and choose the best answer based on the author's manner of reasoning.

Conquering Drawing Conclusions and Assumption Questions

This lesson will give as much attention to drawing conclusion, assumption, and inference questions that the prior lessons gave to the other two logical reasoning question types. Through examining and analyzing sample questions, you'll learn just how to master these three LSAT logical reasoning question types.

Practicing Logical Reasoning Questions

It's time for some more practice! In this lesson, you'll completely examine how to approach and answer all types of logical reasoning questions from prior actual LSAT tests. You'll get a step-by-step guide to doing your best in this section. With this proven strategy, you may even find that you're answering all of them correctly.

Handling More Logical Reasoning Questions

You'll end the course with an examination of one more set of LSAT logical reasoning questions. The goal is for them to become easier and easier the more you see them. You'll also review the important concepts that you'll need to remember for test day.
