Preparation Tips

It is developed by testing professionals with advanced degrees in psychometrics, English, linguistics, and logic. Each test question has been subjected to multiple levels of review and to a system of pre-testing, so candidates can be assured that every question has one and only one correct answer.

Most law school applicants familiarise themselves with test directions and question types, practice on sample tests, and study the information available on test-taking techniques and strategies. Although it is difficult to say when examinees are sufficiently prepared, very few people achieve their full potential without some preparation.

Retaking LSAT

Speaking of taking the test again, it is allowed. However, keep in mind that most schools do not consider the higher of the candidate's scores; they'll take the average. So only take the test again if one is positive that their score doesn't reflect their true ability and they know that they can do better.
