I’m in Love with the June 2007 LSAT and I Need to Tell You All About It! – Part 5

Manhattan Prep LSAT Blog - I'm in Love with the June 2007 LSAT and I Need to Tell You All About It - Part 5 by Chris GentryThis is a continuation of a series of posts exploring the June 2007 LSAT in detail. My goal is to demonstrate where hidden opportunities lie; then, using these analyses as a template, you can find those hidden opportunities in other practice tests. And, of course, find them on test day! Why the June 2007 LSAT? Because this is the LSAT all potential test takers can freely access; this is where most test takers probably begin their prep. And I want to give you some help from the ground up, so to speak!


So, we’ve covered some basics in LR and RC. In LR, we looked at some problems that most test takers skip, and why they shouldn’t. In later posts, we examined speed in LR and in RC. If you haven’t read any of those previous posts, you can start at Part 1.

But we haven’t talked about LG yet.

 Why leave LG for last? Read more

So, last time we discussed the idea of speeding up your read of the passage, and applied that to the first passage in the June 2007 LSAT. Today, let’s take a look at the questions.

Last time, we were focused on speed. Today, our central question is: Read more

If you haven’t seen part 1 or part 2, you may want to take some time to go back and read those.

Today we take a step away from Logical Reasoning, the focus of the previous two posts, and begin an exploration of Reading Comprehension (RC).

There are several aspects of RC that make it an intriguing component of the LSAT. One aspect that may be commonly overlooked is very basic: the number of questions! In terms of questions per section, no single section has as many questions as RC. And in terms of questions per source material, no question type has as many questions that focus on the same source.

This post will be broken into two separate components: analysis of the passage, and analysis of the questions and answers. There are two basic reasons for

So RC is unique in one unfortunate way: it’s possible you may be looking at 8 questions that completely freeze you, and that you have no idea how to efficiently answer, if you’re missing a core process to effectively read the passage. In the next post, we will look at some common challenging aspects to RC passages, but today, I’d like to consider RC from a different point of view: Read more

June 2007 LSAT Video Explanations

by

We’re very excited to announce that we have posted video explanations for the June 2007 LSAT logic games.  You can see them here: //www.atlaslsat.com/logic-games-recordings.cfm or on You Tube – //www.youtube.com/user/atlaslsat#p/u.  Dan and Mike put a lot of time into coming up with truly useful recordings.  Granted, we’re much more about teaching — i.e. making students think — than presenting solutions, but when you’re studying, it’s obviously useful to see how someone else solved a game (particularly how one of our super nerdy curriculum developers did it).  If you’d like to see explanations for the entire game, check that out on our forums: //www.atlaslsat.com/forums/

For our students, we’re developing video explanations for some of the toughest games in our course HW.  Unfortunately, we have to restrict those to our students in order to respect LSAC’s copyrights.

The June 2007 LSAT is a great way to get your feet wet with the LSAT.  However, make sure you take it under timed conditions!  If you’d like to get a copy, as well as some of our resources associated with that test (including a spreadsheet that will analyze your answers), take a look here: //www.atlaslsat.com/lsat-practice-test.cfm

Have fun and good luck!
