The Richardson LSAT Preparation Course
The LSAT Logic Course - Early Bird Prep For June 8! - Start Every Month!
The LSAT is a test of:
Reading and reasoning in the context of the logical reasoning, reading comprehension and analytical reasoning question types.
The LSAT does NOT test a particular set of background skills (although conditional reasoning is a concept that is at the root of many question types).
LSAT questions require you to clearly understand:
In addition, you may also be asked to recognize inferences that can or cannot be made from this information.
These skills which consist of:
are what the LSAT is designed to test.
Make no mistake! LSAT test takers have difficulty with these skills. (That’s what a low LSAT score represents!)
In our years of teaching LSAT courses, we have learned that, that the average test taker does NOT read LSAT questions efficiently and accurately. (That’s why they get average scores.) This is no surprise. LSAT questions are designed to obfuscate the main point. LSAT accomplishes this in highly predictable ways.
Approximately Half Of LSAT Questions Are In The Logical Reasoning Format!
What Is The LSAT Logic Course?
The LSAT Logic Course is a course that has been designed as a supplement to our LSAT courses that will focus on:
These skills will be explored in the context of Logical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and Analytical Reasoning.
Why Is The LSAT Logic Course Separate From Our Regular LSAT Courses?
Our regular LSAT courses are taught only from actual LSAT questions. The LSAT Logic Course includes a strong "background reading and reasoning skills orientation" and will be taught from both actual LSAT questions and from a standard Logic text. This will allow us to use background analysis to help you better understand how the LSAT argument is structured. In addition, the background skills orientation of this course will allow us to focus better on exactly how arguments do and do not work. A better understanding of arguments will improve your LSAT score and help you in your day-to-day life. Information about our primary LSAT courses may be found at:
Hence, the "LSAT Logic Course" may be used in three ways:
LSAT Logic Course Format
