Read Sentences, Not Passages (Ep. 345)

If you want to improve at LSAT Reading Comprehension, remember what your job is: Read the sentences, not the passage. On today’s episode, Ben and Nathan explain why focusing on one sentence at a time is the best way to understand and retain information in both Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning. Then, the guys help one listener decide whether to retake the LSAT—even though he has a 175 on record. Another listener shares an email from LSAC’s Office of Test Security, warning them about taking the official test too many times. The guys help a former Demon student choose which law school scholarship offer to accept. And finally, they discuss why the new law school rankings fail the “100% rule.”
