We'll start this course with a lesson that gives you a peek into what a career in law actually looks like and what your opportunities are. Then we'll go through an overview of the whole process and give you advice on how to maximize your chances of gaining acceptance to the school of your choice.
In this week’s lesson, we'll discuss what to expect from the exam questions. You'll discover the basics of reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and analytical reasoning, and you'll get an overview of the writing sample. You’ll also learn some proven preparation and relaxation techniques.
This week, we'll continue where we left off by going over specific tips on how to approach LSAT question types, eliminate the wrong answers, and guess when you're not sure of the right answer. Then we’ll explore analytical reasoning questions, examining in detail what you should look for when tackling these questions.
The analytical reasoning question comes in two main types: spatial order and group membership. In today's lesson, you'll find out all about each type, complete with examples. Then you’ll discover how to master LSAT group membership analytical reasoning questions, including the proper diagrams to draw and plenty of practice with detailed explanations.
Next, we’ll give you detailed instructions — with lots of practice — on how to deal with spatial order questions and which diagrams to draw. Then you’ll practice your skills on actual LSAT analytical reasoning questions that have appeared on past tests, and you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your efforts with your instructor and other classmates.
In this lesson, we'll go through a specific plan for making the most of your writing sample, so you can prove your ability to put your thoughts together in a cohesive and interesting essay. You'll read sample essays and then compose your own, share it for review, and provide commentary on your classmates’ essays.
