A large part of preparing to take the LSAT (and most standardized tests) is familiarizing yourself with the mechanics of the test:
- What does it look like?
- What is being asked of you?
- How do you physically provide answers to the test questions?
We highly recommend that you acquaint yourself with the test that you will take in preparation for your admission to law school. And now that LSAC is about to launch the Digital LSAT, it’s important that all test takers get a clear sense of what this new test experience will be like.
Official Digital LSAT Tutorials and Practice Tests from LSAC
LSAC is providing a tutorial and several practice tests to get you ready for the Digital LSAT. These tutorial videos and practice tests will help you to get a sense of what it will be like to take the Digital LSAT. The tutorial videos provide a quick run-through of the features of the Digital LSAT, and the practice tests give you a chance to immerse yourself in a simulation of taking the Digital LSAT. You'll be able to do everything you can do on the Digital LSAT — ruling out answers, highlighting passages, setting screen preferences, and more. It’s a valuable opportunity to get used to taking the digital test by taking up to three previously administered LSAT tests under timed conditions. (For additional practice with real questions from past LSATs, check out our other official Prep Tools.)
You can access the Digital LSAT tutorial videos and practice tests on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet, so long as it's internet-connected. To better emulate the experience of taking the Digital LSAT, you may wish to take the practice tests on a tablet if you have access to one. Taking the practice test on a non-touchscreen device using a mouse or trackpad will help you to get comfortable with the Digital LSAT, but you should be aware that the features on the actual Digital LSAT, including scrolling, are engaged through a touchscreen.
