The only way to master the LSAT is if you know exactly what you’re up against. If you want to know what kind of questions are on the LSAT, when you can take an exam, and what the heck your LSAT score even means, you’re in the right place.
The LSAT consists of five multiple-choice sections and a writing sample. Four of the multiple-choice sections are scored, while the extra section is unscored and used by LSAC for experimental purposes. The Writing sample isn't scored, but a copy is sent to each law school to which you apply.
The scored sections include LSAT Logic Games, two LSAT Logical Reasoning sections and LSAT Reading Comprehension.
For many test-takers, LSAT Logic Games are the most enjoyable section on the LSAT. For others, LSAT Logic Games are the most dreaded. Also known as Analytical Reasoning, LSAT Logic Games challenge a test-taker to make sense of a set of rules or principles. Moreover, LSAT Logic Games require you to make rational order out of a sometimes-unclear collection of information. While LSAT Logic Games may not be as fun as they sound, they can be one of the easier sections to master.
If there’s one type of question on the LSAT that conditions your brain like lawyer’s, it’s LSAT Logical Reasoning. Human beings tend to draw unconnected conclusions. LSAT Logical Reasoning questions ask you to identify and evaluate such logical fallacies. LSAT Logical Reasoning typically features an argument. Your job is to weaken, strengthen, describe, or locate the flaw in the argument, then answer LSAT Logical Reasoning questions about it. LSAT Logical Reasoning will help you to think like a law student before you've had a single class.
Because its subject matter tends to be dense, LSAT Reading Comprehension has tripped up its share of inexperienced LSAT test-takers. The LSAT Reading Comprehension section requires you to read a passage several paragraphs in length and loaded with information, and then answer subsequent questions about the LSAT Reading Comprehension passage. Sounds easy enough, but any loss of concentration while reading the LSAT Reading Comprehension passage will doom you when it comes time to recall what you read.
So every LSAT has LSAT Logic Games, LSAT Logical Reasoning and LSAT Reading Comprehension. The fourth and fifth sections of the LSAT are one or two more of these sections, but keep in mind one of the five sections is not scored.
