There are all kinds of places to find LSAT sample questions. Just do a simple Google search and you’ll see. However, you’ll see that not all questions are created equally.
Unfortunately there can be quite a difference in the quality of LSAT sample questions you get. But, no matter how good the sample questions are, you’ll never find better ones out there than actual LSAT questions, from actual LSATs.
Most LSAT Questions are Published
The best part about the LSAT, if there is a best part, is that the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) doesn’t have anything to hide. To prove it to you, they publish almost all of their previously administered LSATs. They also offer a ton of great resources on LSAC’s prep page, including a handful of strategy guides. But most importantly, they give you the chance to take as many past LSATs as you can (assuming you don’t get through every single one).
Each one of their “10 Actual Official PrepTests” has 10 past LSATs. They also have several other books that offer targeted practice for each of the areas.
You can also access LSAT Prep Plus, which includes over 70 previously published official LSATs, online. Bonus: Magoosh subscriptions now include access to Official LSAT Prep Plus materials!
The only catch is, these materials aren’t free (although you do get free access to LSAC Official Prep Plus with your Magoosh plan!). On the bright side, they aren’t very expensive either, particularly in paper form.
For those of you looking for more strategy, there are some other resources out there you can purchase that are really helpful.
Magoosh’s Online LSAT Prep
In addition to the piles of tips and info we share in our LSAT Blog, we also offer an online LSAT prep course that includes access to LSAC Official Prep Plus, hundreds of video explanations, video lessons with LSAT sample questions, practice questions, and study schedules to help you make the most of your LSAT prep.
The practice questions can be filtered by type so you can target your weaknesses without burning through your official LSAT PrepTests. With your subscription, you’ll also have access to our friendly team of online coaches who are there to answer your questions, listen to your suggestions, and generally make prep test a little more fun and a little less stressful.
The PowerScore Bibles
One of the best study guides out there is the PowerScore series. They offer numerous products, but by far their most popular books are their Logic Games, Reading Comprehension, and Logical Reasoning Bibles. They’re a bit more expensive than the real PrepTests or the Magoosh course, but each of these books give a methodology to each section on the LSAT, and they also break down a bunch of questions to help you see why it works.
Just Doing a Bunch of Practice Questions won’t be good Enough
So now that you know where to find a bunch of questions, what do you do next?
Well, I suppose you could just bust through all of them, and see your scores improve. However, there is a better way.
To start things off, you’ll want to take a few practice LSATs, so you can find out where your strengths and weaknesses are. Once you find that out, figuring out what to study next gets much, much easier.
It should become clear after doing each section two or three times where you need the most work. If you’re perfect already, you should just probably go and take the LSAT before your luck wears out. For every other normal person out there, you’ll see a pattern.
Anyway, once you figure out where you need to work, you need to focus on that area. While taking a bunch of tests in your weakest area is one way to go, you’ll want to do a little more than that. You’ll want to learn strategies to help you be more effective in analyzing questions and getting the right answer faster.
Luckily for you, we’ve got some free resources to help you do just that.
The Magoosh Libraries
The Logic Games Library
Our Logic Games/Analytical Reasoning Library will give you a great foundation in attacking the logic games section. You’ll see some posts on basics, as well as a bunch of tips and tricks. You’ll also be able to find ways to attack specific types of logic games.
The Logical Reasoning Library
The Logical Reasoning Library is even more comprehensive (at least right now) than our Logic Games library. You’ll find tons of resources, from the basics, to LSAT sample questions, to descriptions of every kind of question you’ll get thrown your way.
With all the information out there, it can be kind of overwhelming. Just getting started can be tough. The best thing you can do to start the ball rolling is order some real LSATs, take a practice test, set some goals, and make a plan.
