Instead, consider reaching out to us today to get started with a Miami LSAT prep course. You can also continue reading for a closer look at the LSAT and what we can do to help you prepare for it.
What's covered on the LSAT?
The Law School Admissions Test or LSAT is designed to help law schools assess which of their applicants possess the key skills that are needed for success in the law school environment. To that end, the test is split into four different categories. These categories are called Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Writing. Varsity Tutors can help you develop a more complete set of academic skills in all of these areas.
The Reading Comprehension section of the LSAT has a time limit of 35 minutes. It asks test-takers to read a series of complex, long-form texts and then to answer questions about these texts. The written passages that you encounter in this section will mirror the kind of reading you'll need to do while in law school. Questions may cover the passage's main purpose, information that is explicit or implicit, the meaning of works in context, the principles that guide the passage, or the impact that new claims would have on the passage, among other things.
Next, you'll also take the LSAT's section on Analytical Reasoning. This section is also often called "Logic Games" due to the game-like nature of the questions that you'll be asked on it. The purpose of this section is to measure your ability to understand and identify logical relationships and draw inferences and conclusions from these statements. On this section, you may be asked to reason with conditional statements, infer what could be true based on what's provided, infer what could or must be true when presented with new information, and more. This section also has a time limit of 35 minutes.
The next LSAT section is called Logical Reasoning. These questions will assess your ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments. You'll read short statements from content sources like newspapers, advertisements, magazines, and more. Then, you'll answer questions based on the information from the excerpt you've just read. You'll be tasked with recognizing different parts of the arguments being made and identifying their relationship to one another. You'll need to be able to reason by analogy, draw well-supported conclusions, detect assumptions that are made, identify principles and rules, and much more.
Finally, the Writing section of the LSAT is slightly different from the other test sections. This part of the LSAT doesn't feature any multiple-choice questions. Instead, you'll be tasked with responding to a Writing prompt that asks you to choose between two positions or courses of action. You'll need to create an essay that supports the decision that you make. There is no right or wrong answer. Rather, the purpose of this section is to assess your ability to make an argument in the written form. This is something that you'll need to do a lot while in law school and while practicing as a lawyer. This part of the LSAT is ungraded but it is a good chance to show the law schools you apply to that you're skilled as a writer.
How can Varsity Tutors help you prepare for the LSAT?
As detailed above, the LSAT is a challenging exam that tests for a wide variety of academic skills. Taking a Miami LSAT course can enhance the quality of your study sessions as you get ready to take this important standardized test. When you sign up to take a class, you can choose between two and four-week options. Additionally, new Miami LSAT class offerings start weekly so you can easily find one that fits your scheduling requirements.
Classes take place on a live virtual learning platform. They are taught by experienced instructors who will deliver a series of lectures that cover what you need to know before taking the LSAT. You'll also learn alongside a group of peers who you can interact with throughout your course sessions. This can serve to further enhance your learning experience. If you find that you're having trouble with one of the topics from your Miami LSAT course, then you can also sign up to work with your instructor individually. This makes it easy to keep pace with your course even if you feel like you're starting to fall behind at some point.
When preparing for the LSAT, it's important to practice answering the types of questions that you find on the exam efficiently. This is because LSAT sections have restrictive time limits. Taking a course is also a chance to get the practice you need to be able to do this. Your instructor can provide you with a well-rounded learning experience when you sign up to take an LSAT class.
How can you get started?
The LSAT is an important exam that can play a large role in your law school admissions cycle. That's why you owe it to yourself to have a solid test preparation process in the lead up to your upcoming exam. Consider taking a Miami LSAT class to get more out of your test preparation experience. You can easily get started with a course when you contact Varsity Tutors today. We look forward to working with you.
