If you're getting ready to take the LSAT, you may benefit from a Madison LSAT prep course that Varsity Tutors can connect you with. The LSAT, or Law School Admission Test, is required by all American Bar Association-accredited law schools, including the University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison. The LSAT is the only test used by these schools for the purpose of admission and is designed specially to assess the same type of reasoning and argumentation skills that you'll need to succeed in law school. This means that preparation for the test can be a wide-ranging undertaking, but any skills you develop as you study for the LSAT may continue to be useful in law school. A Madison LSAT course can be a great way to receive expert direction in your studies.
What kind of material will a Madison LSAT course cover?
The LSAT is broken up into four sections which will take you about three hours total to complete. Three of these sections will be presented to you in a multiple-choice format at a test center. You will be given a tablet that will let you answer these questions with a touchscreen and provide tools to help you keep track of your test time and return to specific questions you've marked to review. The last section of the LSAT will be taken online and it will evaluate your ability to write an essay. Here's a look into what these test sections will cover.
The first section will test you on Reading Comprehension. Here, you'll be asked to read lengthy and detailed passages that are meant to mimic the sort of texts you'll deal with in law school. After you've read these passages, you'll have to be able to prove your ability to understand what information they state explicitly and what further information can be inferred, how context affects parts of the passages, the role that the structure of the text plays, what kind of authorial attitude can be determined from the tone, how new information might affect the arguments these passages make, and other similar mental tasks. You'll have 35 minutes to answer these questions.
The second section is the Analytical Reasoning section. This part of the LSAT is designed to test you on your ability to understand structures of relationships and how sets of rules relate to each other and affect outcomes. To do well on this section, you'll have to understand and work well with conditional statements. For example, you'll have to determine what must be true given a set of conditional statements, or, equally, what must not be true given these statements. You'll need to be able to look at a set of provided rules and be able to understand what effect these rules will have on new information. You will have 35 minutes to complete this section.
The third section assesses your Logical Reasoning skills. In this section, you'll be provided with reading material from a variety of sources, such as magazine articles, scholarly publications, informal essays, and the like. After reading this source material, you'll be asked to demonstrate your skill in recognizing the component parts of arguments and how they relate to each other. You will have to determine the assumptions underlying an argument as well as the principles these arguments espouse to identify flaws or misunderstandings in arguments, comment on the similarities and differences between arguments, and show well-supported reasoning for your conclusions. This sections is split into two 35-minute segments, for a total of 70 minutes spent on Logical Reasoning.
The fourth section is the Writing section. Unlike the other sections, you will not take this section in a LSAT test facility, but will instead complete it online. You will also not be graded on this part of the LSAT. Instead, you will be given a decision problem in which you are asked to pick one of two positions on a topic and defend your choice in a written argumentative essay. This essay will be provided to all the law schools that you apply to as a writing sample. The goal is not to pick the "correct" answer to the decision problem, as there is no "correct" answer. Instead, this is your opportunity to show law school admissions boards your ability to craft a well-written, clearly-reasoned essay that uses precise language.
How will a Madison LSAT course help me review this material?
Madison LSAT courses are designed to fit your schedule. We recognize that many potential law school students have very full professional and personal lives and come from a variety of backgrounds. No matter if you're still in school or are a working professional returning to higher education, Varsity Tutors can provide a selection of courses to suit your preferences. These courses are taught online by a qualified instructor, which makes for an easy commute and a flexible schedule. An LSAT prep course functions just like an in-person classroom. You'll see and speak with your teacher and classmates, and will have the chance to collaborate with fellow law school applicants in teacher-led classes as you prep for the LSAT. You will also be able to take extra time to talk to your instructor one-on-one to brush up on any sections that you might find yourself struggling with.
In addition to the convenience of an online class, group classes have been demonstrated to be effective in promoting retention and acquisition of information, and you may be able to develop a more complete plan of study with the support of your peers than you might be able to on your own. Madison LSAT classes can also help you to understand not only the content of the test, but also how it will be formatted and presented to you at a test-taking facility. After all, you may want to brush up on your test-taking skills as well. A Madison LSAT class can help direct you as you study for the test.
