Note: We recently made some cosmetic updates to the study schedule and updated links to outside materials to the most current resources. If you’re in the middle of this two month plan, rest assured, all the content is the same!

It takes several months maximize your LSAT score. Very few students can achieve that goal in less than 3 to 6 months. But if you’re determined to prep for the LSAT in 2 months, we have a study plan to give you the best shot at a great score. You’ll need to be disciplined and dedicate 3–4 hours a day, 4–5 days a week. Use this two-month LSAT study schedule to get up to speed quickly and build confidence for test day.

Quick note: Your LSAT score is one of the most important factors in law school admissions, so be sure to give yourself sufficient time to study. If you don’t have enough time to dedicate to studying over the next eight weeks, you may want to consider signing up for a later administration of the LSAT.

If you do have the time to prepare over the next two months, the following two-month 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 game plan for each week. The game plan sets out which Magoosh lessons to watch, the estimated time it will take to complete each lesson, and when to take practice exams and do practice problems.

If you’re a Magoosh premium student, remember that you can contact our tutors with questions any time. 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 two-month study plan is the study plan to get your best LSAT score!

Essential Study Materials for the Two Month LSAT Study Plan

Materials to Purchase

Free Materials

First Month

Your first month of studying 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 two practice tests to assess your strengths and weaknesses.

Week 1

Primary Goals

  • Take a diagnostic exam to determine your starting point.
  • Set out your LSAT study schedule.
  • Begin learning Magoosh-recommended approaches.

Game Plan

  • Take a diagnostic 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, to 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 LSAT study schedule. With only eight weeks ahead of you, you should plan to study at least 3–4 hours a day, 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.
  • View the following Magoosh lessons to understand the basic structure and approach to each of the three sections of the LSAT:
  • 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

  • Master the Magoosh strategies.
  • Complete 2-3 hours of practice problems at least four days this week.
  • Review Magoosh flashcards for 30 minutes a day for at least four days.

Game Plan

  • Aim for 1 hour of practice problems daily and at least one hour of reviewing the answers. Be sure to practice questions from each section, but don’t worry about timing yet; we’ll focus on pacing starting in Week 4.
  • Watch Magoosh lessons to set up your foundation for each of the LSAT sections. This week you’ll want to watch:
  • 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! 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.

  • 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.
