Pre LSAT Prep

Postby Meyrs » Sun Dec 02, 2012 11:26 pm

I was wondering if anyone could pass along any advice on skills to improve on before even beginning formal LSAT prep. Such as working on vocab and reading comprehension/speed and any methods or sources that you have found helpful.

Thanx in advance for any suggestions.

Other than the grammar, it wasn't a jest. Read Infinite Jest. Read Gravity's Rainbow. Get a subscription to Scientific American. If you have access to JSTOR, read some scholarly articles on areas of interest. Get used to dense reading.

And once you get through a few of them, make sure to read some scholarly articles on areas in which you have no interest whatsoever.

Take a course in symbolic logic and critical thinking.

Only if you think you'll do well. Because those courses are complete overkill for the LSAT, but they have a tendency to be very difficult. If you excel in one, the LSAT will be a breeze. If you don't, you'll have over-prepped for the LSAT (or underprepped if you get completely lost) and made your GPA suffer for it.
