LSAT

LSAT – Short for Law School Admission Test, the LSAT is a standardized test that students must take to gain acceptance into many law schools.  The LSAT assesses the logical and verbal reasoning skills of prospective law school candidates. The LSAT consists of five sections (logical reasoning, reading comprehension, and analytical reasoning) that add up to a total of 180 points.  On any given test, a student will be presented with two logical reasoning sections, two reading comprehension sections and one analytical reasoning section.  The logical reasoning sections of the LSAT consist of 35 multiple-choice questions that test a person’s ability to decipher an “argument” and answer questions based on their interpretation.  The reading comprehension section of the LSAT consists of 35 multiple-choice questions that test a person’s ability to pull and interpret information from passages related to law, humanities, physical sciences, and social sciences.  The analytical reasoning section of the LSAT consists of 35 multiple-choice questions that test a person’s ability to make sense of several “logic games.”  These “logic games” will set up a scenario and require you to interpret the results.  There is an experimental, multiple-choice section on the LSAT that is not graded.  The LSAT also consists of a writing sample that although ungraded, is sent to college admission’s offices for review.
