    Hey guys,

    The LSAT is coming up in October, and I am workin' on it! I'm doing self-study, so the weight is on me. Occasionally, I have tough questions and would love to have someone--or some people--to shoot them to. 2 heads are better than one, right?

    Anyway, if you aced the LSAT, or are just good at logical reasoning, and would like to help me out since you're so awesome, post a message.

    For most of the sections, just practice reading different things. Not just essays and practice tests but newspapers, articles, anything that has a structured, complex argument.

    For the games, it feels silly, but it makes an enormous difference if you diagram them.

    No, no, no. Go to and sign up for an LSAT class.

    I used to teach for Kaplan while I was in law school. The most important thing is to practice the questions as much as you can.

    There are specific ways to attach each section as well... feel free to email me and we can discuss.

    when I took it, I didn't do any of the study guides or classes or anything. I had friends who did everything they could get their hands on.

    I will admit the test wasn't the easiest thing I had ever done, but all of my friends who had used every available resource to study all came out and were like "Is that it?"

    Like law school..its not as bad as everyone thinks it is...and once you get to the bar exam, you'll wonder why you were ever stressed out about it anyway.

    It's kind of funny actually. Everyone thinks its about logic...but there are some of the most illogical people you will ever meet in law school. If the LSAT is designed to weed those people out, it's a poor tool.

    good luck, tho...when you get in to take it, take a deep breath, and just are smarter than 60% of the people in the room (maybe 90%...I don't really know you, but your profile leads me to believe, you'll be fine).

    I studied hard, did well and glad for it. I took a prep course at Wichita State the semester before I took it, one night a week for several weeks. I would suggest you NOT just make it self study. Do something in addition where you have interaction. This is a good start.

    Best wishes on your studies!
