Master the Logical Reasoning Sections

Postby Go2LawSchool2011 » Mon May 31, 2010 1:54 am

Hey all, I been study the LSAT for months now and I just do not understand the LR sections. It is fraustrating to study and not get the answers. I know the type of the LRs and I know the defination by heart, but whenever I do the question I constantly get it wrong even if I narrow down to two question, which happen frequently, I always pick the wrong answer. Part of my problem is I have hard time understand the stimulus and the other part is to understand the answer choices. English is my second language and I am trying to understand the test, I have used the powerscore books and taken kaplan prep class but I am not getting through the LR sections. If any have any advices, please share. Thank you! And GOOD LUCK studying for the June Exam.

Not to be insensitive, but I think your results may be affected by your ESL background. Performing at a high level on the LSAT requires a grasp of English that is not common even among native speakers. Success in law school is similar, I imagine.

Because of this, law could be a tough field for you. If you are set on it, I would try to get to a high level of fluency.

Hi, fellow ESLer here:

How good is your english? Do you live in America (or other english speaking country) now? If so how many years have you lived here?

if you can't understand the stimulus, no matter how familiar the question type looks to you, you wont be able to score.
if i were you, i would try to figure out how to understand the stimulus first.
