I disagree with your advice to take as many law school practice exams *as early as you can.* If you take them too early, you'll just write nonsense because you haven't done the readings and you don't understand the material yet (especially in 1st year where you don't even know how to "think like a lawyer" yet). You ought to do them sometime in the weeks leading up to your final.

Hey LegalEagle? Which prep course did you take? How many months did you spend studying? Online or in person? I heard that Blueprint (BP), Powerscore (PS), & testmasters (TS) are the best. I heard that the getting the powerscore bilbes are a great way to prepare. I also just got the online Kaplan version but I heard Kaplan&princeton are the worst so I might return and get BP, PS, & TS? My work schedule Mon, Tues, & Thurs work 8-6 so LSAT studying: 7-10 on Mon, Tues, & Thurs But on my off days I am going to study all day so Wed, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday 8-10 hours. I will probably wake up early around 7 or 8 so that I can study for 10 hours Total Mon, Tues, & Thurs 9 hours Off days Wed, Fri, Sat, & Sunday 32 (8hrsaday) or 40 hours (10hoursaday) Studying:49 hours a week Working:30 hours working I hope this enough time studying, I know that I can't spend as much time studying as you did, but hopefully this a good amount of time Please let me know prep course you used. Thanks

I took the live class from Testmasters from one of the instructors that started BluePrint. I had a great experience. As I result, I always recommend Testmasters and BluePrint. I also always recommend the live class because I think it forces you to focus. It's a big investment, but getting into a good law school is worth it (and the LSAT is the best way of doing that).

Your videos are incredibly helpful. Would I be able to contact you regarding very specific law school questions? I’m barely going to start undergrad in the fall, but would like to get ahead and prepare for the LSAT already. Thank you for your kind consideration.

+Son Gohan You have to get rid of that attitude of "I've never been a straight-A student" and "I'm at a huge disadvantage." That's almost setting yourself up to fail. I also was a first generation college student and entered law school with zero connections to the legal field, and I learned that it's imperative for students like us to develop the attitude of "I worked hard for this and I'm right where I belong." If you just started college, focus on your grades right now and the LSAT later. Both undergrad GPA and the LSAT score are important to law schools, with many schools weighting them equally.

Get better grades in college, then in three years take a good LSAT prep course.

LegalEagle Thank you for responding promptly sir; I know the LSAT is still further down the road, but I’d like to get a head start as early as possible, so any type of preparation advice will be invaluable to me. I’m a first generation student, I don’t know anyone in the practice of law, and I’ve never been a straight A student. I’m at a huge disadvantage so I’m trying to compensate by spending as much time out of academics on preparing for a high LSAT score. In essence, I’m doing it all on my own. Your feedback is greatly appreciated by the way!

Sure, but it's way too early to think about law school. Get good grades and have fun. Start thinking about the LSAT in three years, but not sooner.

I went to a mom and pop local law school for a year because I got a 137 on my lsat, I was not happy there and got out. Currently I'm studying for the lsat again. I now see a similarity with "issue spotter" on a law school test (contracts, Criminal law, torts, civil procedure) and the way I'm outlining my logical reasoning prep tests, as well as the Reading comprehension section. My advice to any future law student is to be proactive in your test prep, keep pencil in your hand and keep pencil moving, outlining the most important words or phrases. Master this, and when you get to law school, issue spotting will be so much easier, trust me😎 As for the "Games section", I did not see any use for law school per see, but, maybe when you are an attorney your boss will ask you to put a case together for review 😽

Hey, can you make a separate video about the LSAT and what's the best way to prepare for it.
LegalEagle (8 months ago)
Hmm. That is a little outside our wheelhouse. But thanks for the idea!

Thank you for these videos they are very helpful. I am preparing for the LSAT in December. I am studying on my own. I cannot afford to take the LSAT practice courses that are offered. I have bought a few books and am practicing by taking practice test. The section I am having the hardest time with is the logic game section. Do you have any tips for preparing for that section? Thank you!

Fatisha Newman -- I am taking it this Dec as well!! I took a class last year and it was ok. This year I found a LSAT tutor, reasonably priced, and he has helped me out immensly! I am very grateful. I hope to do well on the LSAT, but even if I don't, I am going to go to the best law school that will accept me and work on being an attorney vs being the best LSAT taker. :/ (Even tho I definitely could if I had the luxury of time!) Don't stress over the LSAT, that's my biggest tip! Methodically go through each question and skip if one is giving you too much pause. You only get points for right answers! So don't ponder too long on something you may get wrong. That's been my philosophy for the last few practice exams and I've felt better and raised my score a bit higher than it was last year when I took the LSAT the first time. :)

Logic games are tough!  But just like law school essays, people have developed strategies to break them down.  There are only a few different types of logic games, so just find prep materials that cover each type and learn the strategies for each one.  And keep practicing!  Practice + learning = improvement.
