A large part of preparing to take the LSAT 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 recommend that you acquaint yourself with the LSAT in the same format in which your test will be administered. In addition, taking practice tests under time constraints will help you estimate how much time you can afford to spend on each question. It will also help you identify the question types with which you need more practice.
Knowing in advance what the test instructions and the question types look like will minimize distractions from your main focus on test day: answering test questions and budgeting your time wisely to do so and complete the test.
