LSAT vs. Bar Exam

Postby baitswitch619 » Thu Jan 21, 2010 1:10 am

This is a question for all of you who have taken both the LSAT and State Bar. Would you say that the major difference between the two is that the Bar tests your ability to recall concrete information that you have previously studied and learned? Ex. Who was the first Pres. of the U.S. Answer: G. Washington. I am asking this because I am not a particularly good standardized test taker and didn't do too hot on the LSAT. I am wondering if I should get discouraged by this when I take the Bar. Considering I am most likely going to take it in California (among the hardest in the country), I just want to know what I'm up against. I am still an undergrad student by the way. My GPA in school has always been high because tests were course-specific and usually only involved memorization, whereas you cannot answer LSAT questions because you know facts that you memorized beforehand. Can anyone help me in answering this? Thanks and I greatly appreciate your feedback in advance.
