Nice to meet you online and it’s great to hear that you’ve found the Trainer helpful —
The rules and scope of the LSAT (that is, what is being tested, and, consequently, how you are likely to score) do not change from administration to administration, but the style and feeling of the test do change a tiny bit over time, and so more recent exams will be just a bit more…Read More
I have the trainer and it has been a huge help thus far – thank you!
I hopped onto Amazon to purchase preptests 52-61, and I noticed that LSAC is selling preptests individually from 72 onward. Have there been any significant changes to the LSAT since preptest 71 that would make purchasing a few of the more recent tests valuable for practice?
Thanks so much!
Those are some good q’s and tough decisions — here are some thoughts — as always, you know yourself best, so please use what you’d like and ignore whatever you think doesn’t apply to you —
1. Understanding, Strategies, Skills, Habits
I think the above is a valuable rubric for both determining how you ought to spend your practice time and how you ought to review your…Read More

I think you may have accidentally switched around the wording a bit on the first one —
Ted watching the television does not guaranteed that he will be able to watch the soccer match so this argument is invalid.

Here me out.
I don’t know if you remember my username but I had challenges understanding conditional reasoning, flaws and how to translate statements (for LR).
I decided to review the chapters on flaws again and realized that the premise is like the sufficient condition that guarantees the conclusion (the necessary condition). So if the premise doesn’t validate the conclusion the…Read More
I’ll chime in —
I actually don’t know anyone who doesn’t experience nervousness about the test — here are a few thoughts that come to mind —
1) When you practice in the book, you are told ahead of time what you will be facing (a flaw problem, a certain type of game, etc.), and, because you solve a bunch of similar q’s at once, you are able to develop a rhythm — when yo…Read More
Hi, Mike! I have used the LSAT Trainer, followed the 16-week schedule, and took the lsat. I wasn’t satisfied with my first test score. Do you think it is worthwhile I should read lsat trainer again or should I try other kinds of toolbooks? My reason to try new ones was because I thought lsat trainer had a lot of words than exercises. I just thought “the correct logic” or the “correct way…Read More
Oh my goodness, thank you so much, Mike!! That is all super helpful as I start studying. I know there’s no way I can anticipate a particularly challenging game but this is a really helpful approach. Thanks!
Anybody having trouble with test anxiety? I notice that when I do practice questions in the books, I’m scoring much higher than when I do timed practice questions from a ‘real’ practice test. Maybe I’m too focused on timing for now and should get my skills up first?
Hi Kiara — nice to meet you online and thanks so much for trusting in the Trainer —
The lessons in the book are designed to take roughly an hour to complete — depending on the subject matter, etc., some will take a bit less time and some more — in addition, you will likely find certain lessons easier (and be able to go through those faster) and some more difficult (in which case you…Read More
Hi! I just purchased The LSAT Trainer for an 8 week program. On the schedule, it indicates the assigned tasks for each week (i.e. Week 1 includes lesson 1-7 and a diagnostic exam). I’m curious to know if you have any recommendations or advice regarding the amount of time to spend on each task. Should it simply be, dedicate x number of hours each night and space it out accordingly? How…Read More
Before I start, just a random coincidence / side story —
I had an exterminator come to my house yesterday, and he was literally wearing two pairs of shoes at the same time — his regular shoes, then some strange giant slipper sort of protective shoe over it — I wanted to ask him if I could take a picture of it, in my head specifically thinking of this particular drill…Read More
Hey Mike, I”M still having a lot of trouble with the doll problem. specifically the 1st statement.
If a doll is wearing a red dress, it will be wearing glass slippers. If the doll wears any dress that isn’t red, it will wear purple slippers. Doesn’t that mean the only dress it can wear glass slippers with is the red one, making it provable and thus a Y? I just don’t understand how a…Read More
First off, congrats on getting yourself to such a high level already — with plenty of time until June, I think it’s an understatement to say that you are in a wonderful position LG-wise —
