If you’re reading this blog post, you probably already know how hard it can be to study for the LSAT.

What's Tested on LSAT Logical Reasoning

More than any other section of the test, the LSAT Logical Reasoning section has a clear mandate that directly pertains to your future as a law student: to make sure you can understand the ins and outs of argumentation. For that reason, one of my favorite LSAT Logical Reasoning tips—indeed, one of the first LSAT Logical Reasoning tips I share with all of my students—is to think of the Logical Reasoning section not as a hurdle you have to jump to get to law school, but as part of your essential preparation for law school.
