One of the reasons why you will find many students failing the verbal reasoning test is because they do not take practice tests. Most colleges and universities require students to take at least one practice test each semester. You should therefore make an effort to take practice tests in order to become familiar with the format and the questions. Most tutors will supply you with practice tests that you can take from home. It is worth taking a few of these each week to ensure that you are up to date on the type of questions you will be faced with.
If you are unable to obtain your desired marks on the verbal reasoning section then your only option may be to take the LSAT. Most tutors will provide you with practice tests and these will usually be provided by the law school you are planning to join. The LSAT, unlike most other exams is designed for real-world legal problems and scenarios. It therefore requires a high level of understanding and practical ability and it is therefore rarely attempted by candidates who have little preparation.
There are numerous reasons why students may choose to study vocabularies other than the aforementioned exams, including Law School Exams, University Studies and English as a Second Language (ESL). You can however still pass the LSAT and the verbal reasoning section, if you apply yourself and work hard on preparing for the tests. In this article I will outline some tips that I have compiled from studying numerous vocabularies and applied them to my success rate on the LSAT.
Firstly, it is important to realise that there are two types of LSAT tests that are administered in October; the core and the supplementary. Both are extremely challenging but the core test is generally more difficult than the supplementary test. Most students choose to take the core LSAT before attending their chosen university so it makes perfect sense that they should also study a little for the supplementary test. The key to success on the core LSAT is to build strong fundamental linguistic abilities, analytical skills, and reading and writing capabilities; all areas that are tested on the various eleven-plus tests.
Secondly, preparation for the verbal reasoning section is critical. The numerical reasoning section mainly consists of answering a set of four short answer questions that assess a candidate s level of understanding, comprehending, and recalling material that has been presented to them. This part of the test will not be easy but can be made easier by undertaking practice LSAT questions that assess different types of thinking.
Thirdly, it is important to keep track of your progress on all of the LSAT tests. Once you start taking the examinations, you will quickly see that it is very difficult to keep track of progress since your progress will be influenced by many factors such as when you take the test, how tired you are, and what questions you were asked. One way to ensure that you don’t forget to make any progress notes or make it a habit to write notes every day is to set yourself reminders. If you were to write down your progress on a sticky note each day, it would make it much easier to remember.
Finally, practice makes perfect so it is important to devote a small amount of time to practicing with friends or family members who are also taking the LSAT or answering some of the other free LSAT questions online. The best way to practice is to practice using both verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. You can then use the answers to see which type of question works best for you before using real LSAT examinations. If you apply these strategies when taking the LSAT, you have a much better chance of solving problems in the test and answering them correctly.
