Most people take practice LSATs wrong.  I see it all the time, and it sucks because it comes back to bite them in the ass on test day.  I don't want that to happen to you!

The key to practicing LSATs is to simulate the real testing environment as closely as possible.  That way, test day is just like another practice test.  How do you do this?

First, gear up with exactly what you are allowed to use on test date:

  • LSAT printed on paper.  Never take an LSAT displayed from a screen of any kind.

  • No. 2 pencil, eraser and sharpener.  Never use a mechanical pencil, pen, marker etc.

  • Analog wristwatch.  Never use a digital timer - you need to get used to your watch.  If you don't have one yet, use the one in our LSAT Proctor App until you get one.

Secondly, set the mood with the right test environment

  • Find your test location and practice in a similar place.  If you can, practice in the actual test location.

  • You will test in the early morning (unless you are taking the June LSAT, when it is in the early afternoon).  Take your tests at that time.

 

Lastly, listen to the real test instructions with appropriate background noises.

  • This is easy - just download the free LSAT Proctor App in less than 30 seconds (Android app is coming soon)

  • Use the app when you practice.  The app includes real proctoring instructions, realistic background sounds and a virtual analog watch.

That's it!  Now that you know how to take LSATs the *right* way, get the app and take an LSAT Prep Test right now.
