As you probably know, the LSAT is changing. 

Starting in August 2024, the test will no longer include a Logic Games section. It will now feature three scored sections: two Logical Reasoning (LR) sections and one Reading Comprehension (RC) section. It’ll also have an unscored experimental section, either LR or RC. 

Recently, LSAC released a "new" batch of PrepTests (101–158) designed to help students prepare for the new LSAT. I say “new” because PTs 101–158 aren’t really new—they’re actually made up of sections from PrepTests 1–94. But the new PrepTests don’t have a Logic Games section. Instead, they have an experimental LR or RC section pulled from another past LSAT.

LSAT PrepTests now fall into two categories:

-Double-digit PrepTests (1–94) - The old PrepTests, with Logic Games. 

-Triple-digit PrepTests (101–158- 1–94, but reshuffled and without Logic Games. These also include an experimental section.

Both categories of PrepTests are made up of the same material from prior LSATs. Unfortunately, we can’t migrate your data from double-digit PTs to triple-digit PTs. This means that if you have been using the double-digit PTs and start using the triple-digit ones, you might run into questions you’ve seen before. 

Re-encountering an old question can sometimes be helpful—it’s the basis of the Blind Review process! But if you’re switching to the triple-digit PTs and don’t want to repeat sections you’ve already taken, you can check this chart, which lists which double-digit PT sections were used to make the triple-digit ones. 

Here are three options for how to structure your studying going forward:

  1. Keep using the double-digit format. Nothing will change. You’ll maintain your existing analytics and performance data for PTs and drills. Just like before, you’ll still be able to choose whether you want to skip Logic Games when you start a PT.
  2. Use two-digit for drills, three-digit for PTs. You can continue drilling specific question types from PTs 1–94, but take PTs from 101–158. This will give you the most accurate sense of your score in the new format. The only downside is that you might re-encounter questions from three-digit PTs in your two-digit drills, or vice versa.
  3. Switch to the three-digit format. If you switch to using materials from PTs 101–158 for both PTs and drills, this will let you fully immerse yourself in the new format. Your analytics will be more accurate. However, if you’ve already done drills or PTs using PTs 1–94, you may encounter some questions again.
