Ctrl-F search for reading comp August 2021

nodetailsnicolenodetailsnicole Monthly Member

I heard from previous test takers that you can use ctrl-f on the lsat, I've been using it while doing reading comp and it really helps! I just wanted to make sure I won't be penalized for using it on the actual test, does anyone have any insight on whether it is actually allowed for the august exam?

    Command-F for macs. Thanks for posting. I've never used this when doing RC, but it's nice to see this is an option.

    Is the August LSAT not in person though?

    No. The LSAT will be online through next June and the foreseeable future.

    For those that used command F for macs and control F for PCs, did you keep control F/command F tool up until the end of the test or can close it after RC?

    You will not be penalized so go ahead and do it!

    But I do think LSAC is aware of this supposed advantage so do be mindful they may twist things up a little. What I mean by that is that they may use synonyms or so in the answers so that you can't just Cntrl + F everything. They have to make it a little interesting. It's one of the observations I noticed when doing RC in the 80's.

    So go ahead and use it but just be mindful of what LSAC may potentially do!

    I gave my exam yesterday and used it without any issues. You will be good! 👍🏻

    Also, you will be taking exam in Chrome so any option you use in that outlay will be available. Though they will be recording your screen - do not open another tab or use thesaurus option to look for meaning.

    How do you use this ctrl-f in LSAT/RC for your advantage?

  • HoRangYiHoRangYi Member

    @frank dawson. for instance, when you can't match the possible AC with the passage, you can look up the key word to re-read that part.

    “All the following are discussed as to reasons why X should be adopted by the council EXCEPT:”

    Ctrl-F and if you find 4 there in that context, then it’s the one you don’t.
