3 Things You Need To Know About LSAT Arguments

LSAT FreedomWorried about the LSAT? We’re delighted to welcome back Robert M. Fojo from LSAT Freedom to share and explain three things you should know about LSAT arguments that will help you build a strong foundation for doing well on the LSAT. Good luck!

Here’s Robert . . .

The LSAT is built on arguments. On the Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections, students will see a lot of arguments. For example, the stimulus of many Logical Reasoning questions will contain an argument. Students will have to evaluate that argument. They may have to find a flaw in the argument, describe the structure of the argument, or identify a missing assumption.

Similarly, on the Reading Comprehension section, most of the passages will consist of individuals making some kind of argument or, at the very least presenting a thesis and some evidence to support it in an effort to convince the reader of something.

Because arguments comprise the foundation for the LSAT, students must understand (1) what arguments are; (2) how they function; and (3) how arguments appear on the LSAT.

Should You Take the Fall LSAT?

Jon Denning PowerScoreWondering which LSAT to take? Jon Denning, a Senior Instructor/Course Developer at PowerScore, has conveniently stopped by with some pros and cons of taking the Fall LSAT.

Leave your questions below and he’ll answer them!

The Fall LSAT, administered near the beginning of the application cycle, is by far the most popular test of the year. Part of this popularity is due to the many college students who spend their summer free time preparing and then take the LSAT as classes resume.

Concurrently, other test takers view the Fall LSAT as the “official” start of the application process, and find it appealing as a result.

Regardless, the most important consideration for all test takers is that they allow for plenty of preparation time, as taking a test as challenging as the LSAT without adequate prep will almost certainly end in disappointment.
