Three Month LSAT Study Plan

Studying for the LSAT is a huge undertaking, and most students need 3 to 6 months of preparation. If you only have 3 months left until the LSAT, you need to get started now! Magoosh’s Three-Month LSAT Study Plan tells you exactly what you’ll need, including official LSAT PrepTests and Magoosh’s online video lessons. Following this plan will prepare you for all facets of the LSAT.

You’ve got three months to prepare for the LSAT. If you’re disciplined and you dedicate 1–2 hours a day, 4–5 days a week to study, you’ll be ready. Use this three-month LSAT study plan as your guide.

Quick note: Your LSAT score is one of the top deciding factors in law school admissions, so be sure you give yourself sufficient time to study. If you don’t have enough time to dedicate to studying over the next twelve weeks, you may want to consider signing up for a later administration of the LSAT to allow yourself adequate time to prepare. If you’re going to school or working full time, this LSAT study schedule may not be right for you.

If you have the time to prepare over the next three months, this LSAT study schedule will help you get the most out of your studying. The schedule is laid out for you week-by-week and includes primary goals and a gameplan for each week. The game plan sets out which Magoosh lessons to watch, the estimated time for each lesson, and when to take practice exams and do practice problems.

You’ll notice there’s no other work assigned during the weeks you are scheduled to take practice exams. The plan is designed this way so that you devote your study time that week to taking the practice test and thoroughly reviewing the answers. This will help you get the most out of this three-month LSAT study plan.

And if you’re a Magoosh premium student, remember you can contact our tutors with questions at anytime. They’re always ready to help, so don’t hesitate to reach out.

The first step toward getting into your dream school is taking the LSAT. This three-month study plan is the study plan to get your best LSAT score!

Essential Study Materials for the Three Month LSAT Study Plan

Free Materials

First Month

Your first month of studying during the three-month LSAT study schedule will focus on building your LSAT foundation. You’ll learn the basic strategies for each of the three LSAT sections, and you’ll take your first practice test to assess your strengths and weaknesses.

Week 1

Primary Goals

  • Register for the exam!
  • Take a diagnostic exam to determine your starting point.
  • Set out your study schedule.
  • Start reviewing Magoosh flashcards.

Game Plan

  • Take a practice LSAT under test-like conditions, ideally in a quiet space where you’ll have at least three hours of uninterrupted time. You can select any of the tests in your official LSAC book to use as your diagnostic exam. Check out How to Take an LSAT Practice Test for tips on making the most of your practice exams.
  • Watch the Scoring and Goal Setting Lesson after your diagnostic exam to get a better understanding of your score. If you haven’t already, set a goal score. Then, score your exam to determine your strongest and weakest areas.
  • Whatever you do, don’t worry about your score at this point. This step will simply help you identify your weaker areas, which you can label your “areas for improvement.” These sections are where you’ll focus your efforts and see your greatest point gains.
  • Determine your study schedule. With only twelve weeks in front of you, you should study for at least 1-2 hours, 4-5 days a week. Schedule your study time on your calendar now and put your goal score and dream school at the top. Keep that motivation front and center.
  • Start reviewing your Magoosh flashcards. In particular, review the LSAT Basics and If-Then Statements cards. These will help set the foundation for your studying.

Week 2

Primary Goals

  • Begin learning the Magoosh strategies.
  • Complete 5-6 hours of practice problems.
  • Review Magoosh flashcards for 30 minutes every other day.

Game Plan

  • View the following Magoosh lessons to understand the basic structure and approach to each of the three sections of the LSAT:
  • Aim for one hour of practice problems and at least one hour of reviewing the answers three days this week. Be sure to practice questions from each section, but don’t worry about timing yet. (You’ll develop your pacing skills in Week 4.)
  • Complete practice problems for every section, placing special emphasis on your weaker area(s). Every day, complete at least two, timed sections from the Magoosh practice problems, and always include one from your weakest area. Be sure to check out Tips for Acing LSAT Reading Comprehension to learn the five top tips to improving your score on this section.
  • Study your Magoosh flashcards at least 30 minutes a day! Keep reviewing the if-then statement cards. If-then reasoning is key to Logical Reasoning and to Logic Games, which means it’s essential to improving your LSAT score. Also, add in the Transitional Language cards this week. These cards will help you on both Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning.

Week 3

Primary Goals

  • Learn new Logic Game types and Logical Reasoning question types.
  • Continue learning Magoosh strategies through individual practice problems.
  • Visit your selected test center!

Game Plan

  • Watch Magoosh lessons to set up your foundation for each of the LSAT sections. This week you’ll want to watch:
  • Complete practice problems for every section, placing special emphasis on your weaker area(s). This week, complete at least four timed sections from the Magoosh practice problems, and always include one from your weakest area. Also, be sure to try lots of Inference practice questions since you learned this new question type this week.
  • Score your results and take the time to review all of your answers. Remember, only by reviewing the answer choices can you understand why you got an answer right or wrong. That information is crucial to improving your score. You’ve got to know how you got to the right answer so you can repeat that approach on the real LSAT!
  • Study your Magoosh flashcards at least 30 minutes a day!
  • If you already know where you’ll be testing, take a little trip to your selected test center. If you can, get inside and poke around. Try and feel it out and plan to return at another time.

Week 4

Primary Goals

  • Develop your pacing skills.
  • Learn another Logic Game type.
  • Learn key Logical Reasoning question types: Strengthen and Weaken questions.

Game Plan

  • Learn Magoosh pacing strategies by reading Intro to LSAT Pacing and watching the Pacing Strategy lessons for Logic Games and Logical Reasoning. By now you’ve got the essential approaches down for each section, so at this point you need to develop your speed to earn more points on each section. The Magoosh pacing strategies will help you feel confident moving at a faster speed through problem sets.
  • Watch Magoosh lessons to set up your foundation for each of the LSAT sections. This week you’ll want to watch:
  • Take three timed practice sections in a row each day—you can either do one of each section of the LSAT or do two sections of a type that you want to focus on this week. Taking three sections in a row will help you increase your stamina for test day. When everyone else is fading, you’ll still be going strong!

Second Month

Congrats, you’re a third of the way through with your LSAT prep! By this point, you should have learned the basic Magoosh-recommended strategies and completed and scored one full length practice test.

To evaluate the progress you’ve made, your second month of studying will start with a full-length practice test. Your goal now is to focus on improving your speed and accuracy so you can crush the LSAT in two months!

Week 5

Primary Goals

  • Assess progress with second practice LSAT from the 10 Actual, Official LSAT Preptests.
  • Review your second practice exam—the answers you got right and the ones you got wrong.

Game Plan

  • Schedule a long block of time and take your second practice test. Score your test and thoroughly review all the answers. You should see some improvement at this point from your first and second tests. If not, evaluate how much time you have dedicated to studying and ensure you can dedicate the same if not more in the last two months of your studying.
  • Study your Magoosh flashcards at least 30 minutes a day!

Week 6

(If you’re still not seeing any improvement and you think you’d have more time to study at a later date, consider rescheduling your LSAT.)
  • This week is really all about taking and reviewing this practice test—don’t skimp on the review! Make sure you go over all of the questions you got right and wrong. Really dig in so you understand why.
  • Study your Magoosh flashcards—think we forgot about this one?—at least 30 minutes a day!

Third Month

You only have one month left of studying! By now, you’ve mastered the Magoosh strategies for all three LSAT sections. This month your focus will be on learning the final Logic Game types and Logical Reasoning question types, and practicing all of the tips and strategies you’ve learned.

Week 9

Primary Goals

  • Learn and practice new Logic Game types and Reading Comprehension question types.

Game Plan

  • Watch Magoosh lessons on two of the sections. This week make sure to view:
  • Take several timed practice sections in a row each day—make sure to choose at least one section of each type. Remember, taking three sections in a row will help you increase your stamina and help you when you have to take five sections in a row on the day of the test. Do as much as you can tolerate at this point, without overdoing it.

Week 10

Primary Goals

  • Start mentally preparing for test day logistics.
  • Plan your transportation to the exam.
  • Practice, practice, practice.

Game Plan

Week 11

Primary Goals

  • Assess progress with fourth and final practice LSAT from the 10 Actual, Official LSAT Preptests.

Game Plan

  • Schedule a block of time and take your final practice test. This is your last exam for this three-month LSAT study plan! As you’ve been doing, score your test and take the time to review all the answers.
  • Like week 8, this week is really all about continuing to refine your skills on a full-length exam. Put yourself in test-like conditions and act like it’s test day. Get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast, focus on your pacing, and execute.
  • Review those answers.
  • Study your Magoosh flashcards!

Week 12

The final week of study is here! It’s hard to believe the three-month LSAT study schedule is coming to a close!

Primary Goals

  • Continue sharpening your skills.
  • Relax and get ready for test day.
  • Be confident in your preparation—you have worked incredibly hard!

Game Plan

  • Complete two timed sections a day for two days early in the week. Spend time reviewing your responses. The purpose of this exercise is to keep your brain fresh—conserve your energy for the day of the test!
  • Final Day of Study: First, GREAT JOB! You’ve put in a lot of hard work going through this three-month LSAT study plan. Your last task is to read through One Day Till the LSAT and check off everything on the list to prepare for tomorrow. Then, relax. Get outside. Watch a movie. The most important thing you can do now is let your brain relax. Get some good sleep so you can do your best tomorrow!
