Manhattan Prep LSAT Blog - Stories Behind the LSAT: Amos Tutola by Matt ShninersUnder the time constraints of the LSAT, you won’t have time to appreciate some of the great content in the Reading Comprehension passages and Logical Reasoning questions.

Ralph Ellison and his most famous novel, The Invisible Man, featured prominently in passage 3 of PrepTest 37’s Reading Comprehension section, which suggests the writers of the LSAT felt that the average reader wouldn’t know much about him. After all, they try to pick more obscure subjects to avoid giving anyone an advantage. Hopefully, however, this post makes him slightly more visible to the average LSAT prepper! Read more
