Intro to Reading Comprehension

The LSAT Reading Comprehension (RC) section presents a significant challenge due to its dense material and strict time constraints, but adopting strategic approaches in both preparation and test-taking can markedly improve performance.
  • The RC section includes 26 to 28 questions based on passages, demanding efficient time management within a 35-minute limit.
  • Effective study strategies emphasize understanding formal and informal logic before tackling RC passages and advocate for slow, strategic reading to build speed over time.
  • Test day strategies recommend prioritizing easier passages first, employing active reading to identify key disputes, and utilizing annotation for efficient reference.
  • An 'easy first' strategy coupled with strategic guessing for unanswered questions can optimize scores under time pressure.
  • The digital LSAT format offers tools like passage-only mode and question flagging to aid in managing the reading and answering process.
