Why It’s Important to Practice with Official LSAT Questions

In order to master every question type before your official exam, it’s important to see exactly what the test looks like. And there’s no better way to do that than by looking at previous exams! Magoosh is pleased to be one of the top-recommended, and most affordable, test prep providers that uses official LSAC questions in our LSAT Prep product.


 

How to Take the Test

Working through an LSAT piecemeal—one section on the bus, the next during dinner—won’t prepare you for the endurance you’ll need on test day. Instead, use the following guidelines to make sure your environment is as test-like as possible.

  • Pick the right place
  • It’s important to practice in a quiet, calm environment where you won’t be disturbed—just like on test day.

  • Time yourself
  • You won’t get an accurate sense of your current abilities on the LSAT unless you stick to the official timing guidelines. If you’re taking the test digitally, you won’t need a timer; there’s an official countdown timer on-screen that will tell you how long you have left in the section. If you are taking a paper practice test, make sure to have a watch or timer handy. Don’t use the one on your phone, as you won’t be able to have your phone in the room on test day (and it’s distracting!).

  • Understand the differences between this LSAT practice test and the official exam
  • While the content on this test is exactly like what you’ll see on test day, there are two key differences to remember.

    First, this test doesn’t have a variable section. This won’t affect your score—after all, the variable section is unscored—but it will make the actual exam slightly longer.

    Second, even though taking a practice exam can be stressful, it’s still not as stressful as test day, where you’ll be in an unfamiliar environment. You can prepare for this, though (see the first bullet point above) by working in a library or other calm setting.
