Our classroom courses are designed to take you from knowing nothing about the LSAT to knowing everything, so you don't actually need to do any studying before your first practice exam. If you're reading this, though, it's probably because you're desperate for something to do, and we're nothing if not obliging, so here's some advice.
Prepare your brain:
- Start reading long, dense articles – the kind of stuff you'd find in The New Yorker or The Economist. That'll help you get used to the language you'll be seeing in Reading Comprehension.
- Read up on “Symbolic Logic.” It's a method for representing arguments in a simplified form, and knowing the basics will give you a leg up in Logical Reasoning.
- Limber up your brain with puzzles like Sudoku, Ken-Ken, and ciphers, to get ready for the kind of thinking you'll be doing in Logic Games.
What not to do:
- Don't take a ton of practice LSATs or do a lot of studying on your own. Doing too much self-studying can cause you to develop bad habits that you'll need to break once you start the course, and it's also a great way to stress yourself out.
If you deeply crave a head start, you can get the Blueprint books on Logic Games and Reading Comprehension, but other than that, try to take it easy. There will be plenty of time to obsess about the LSAT once you start the course. Other than that, just do what you normally do. We'll take care of the rest once the class starts.
