In theory, Reading Comprehension is an easy section. You read a passage and answer questions about it. For the vast majority of questions, the correct answer is given to you, even if it is buried in the passage a bit.

If you, like me, prefer to take your LSAT studying poolside during these hot summer days, here’s an analogy that you’ll relate to: Note-taking on the LSAT is like applying sunscreen. Like sunscreen, if you use too many notes on certain parts of the LSAT, you may be left with foolish-looking marks that didn’t end up being especially useful; but use too little, and the test will scorch you just like the sun. Also like sunscreen, there’s a time and place for notes on the LSAT.

Unfortunately, figuring out sunscreen is generally a lot simpler than figuring out note-taking on the LSAT.

So, LSAT-specific Reading Comprehension tips aside, how can you get better at the basics?

One answer: Read more books! Read more
