Get into law school with JobTestPrep's LSAT test preparation! The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a standardized test designed to assess the logical, verbal and analytical reasoning skills of undergraduate students who wish to study law. It is administered four times a year by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
Applicants are required to take the LSAT as part of the admissions process to All ABA (American Bar Association) approved law schools, most Canadian law schools and some law schools world-wide.
The LSAT consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions, four of which are scored. The unscored section could be any of the three section types below but is used mainly for assessing new questions or test forms. The final part of the LSAT is a 35-minute writing sample which is digitally imaged and sent to law schools admissions offices but not scored.
Logical Reasoning (LR) No. of questions: 24-27
The LSAT contains two logical reasoning sections which are also known as "arguments". The questions begin with a short passage containing an argument or a set of facts followed by one and sometimes two questions. In each question the applicant is required to find the argument's assumption, alternate conclusion, logical omissions and/or errors.
Analytical Reasoning (LG) No. of questions: 22-24
The LSAT contains an analytical reasoning section, also known as "logic games", which contains four different "games". Each game is comprised of a passage containing rules or conditions and 5-7 questions regarding these conditions. Question types vary and require figuring out a sequence, selecting from a group, putting objects in order, drawing conclusions, etc.
The LG is considered to be the hardest part of the LSAT, but it is also the part where practice lead to the biggest improvement. The LGs are not always arranged in increasing order of difficulty, but the questions within each game are.
Reading Comprehension No. of questions: 26-28
The LSAT includes one reading comprehension section. It consists of three passages of 400-500 words each, followed by 5-8 questions, and a fourth passage of comparative reading in which two related texts are presented and a set of questions regards both.
The subjects of the reading passages vary and may come from the disciplines of law, the arts and humanities, physical sciences and social sciences. The applicant is required to determine the author's main idea, analyse information in the passage, draw inferences from the text, and describe the structure of the passage.
Writing Sample In this part of the LSAT the examinee is asked to write a short essay about a given subject. The subject contains a conflict, and the writer is asked to argue in favor of one the two opinions presented.
