Yes, you must take the pre-test before the first day of class. Having the results of the pretest provides critical information about your current performance, which you can use to measure your progress. It also enables us to make any necessary adjustments to the syllabus and assists us in evaluating the effectiveness of our courses. If you are unable to schedule the pre-test before the beginning of the course, please contact us at (520) 626-9873.
Most students take three to six months to study for the LSAT; some take as long as a year. We recommend you take the prep course at the beginning of the time you’ve allotted for study. This will ensure you have an adequate grasp of the test’s basic content and principles, which are crucial for effective independent study. The LSAT is among the most difficult of the standardized exams, and requires a significant investment of time to master.
The course will cover all exam content as well as test-taking strategies and analytical writing advice. While Reading Comprehension and Writing will be covered, emphasis is placed on Logical and Analytical Reasoning (a.k.a. Arguments and Logic Games), as these are generally the most challenging sections of the test. Sessions devoted to Logical Reasoning focus on analyzing the structure and logic of arguments, becoming comfortable with the different argumentative “operations” you will be expected to perform, and practicing high-yield strategies. The Analytical Reasoning sessions will first set forth the method for tackling logic games, then guide students on the finer points of working with that method.
There will be homework assigned after every session. Additional practice will be necessary if you want to improve your scores by any significant margin.
As of March 2019, 28 law schools accept the GRE in lieu of the LSAT, including the University of Arizona. Whether this figure will continue to grow is uncertain. For now, the LSAT remains the only acceptable exam for admission to the majority of law schools, and is still accepted even at those schools that also accept the GRE.
