LSAT changes


<p>I am a newcomer to the whole Law School application process.</p>

<p>I have heard that a good way to prep for LSAT is to take the released practice exams.</p>

<p>I was also advised that the old LSATs are less helpful than more recent ones because test questions have changed, score curve has tightened upwards, etc.</p>

<p>So, from which released LSAT should I practice with? Some have advised LSAT#8 (1997, if I remember correctly) and afterwards, others have said only take ones released after the year 2000 and so on... I would like to know what the general consensus here is.</p>

<p>Also, if possible, how has the LSAT changed over the years, in terms of question formats, etc?</p>

<p>Thank you in advance for your time!</p>

<p>Why study only one? Or two? I have at least ten on a file, and I plan on taking every one of them before I take my first exam. So, to simply offer some friendly advice, I would advise you do the same. (It seems that should you, you probably can reason to take them in chronological order as to when they were released, i.e., build up to the most recent ones.)</p>

<p>HI prowlin panther,</p>

<p>Like La Barrister, if you are serious about doing well on the LSAT, you want to take more than one practice LSAT exam.</p>

<p>You can buy sets of ten past LSATs relatively cheaply.</p>

<p>And, although some questions have changed, the underpinning logic of the LSAT remains.</p>

<p>In other words, you will benefit as much from solving and deconstructing a ten-year old LSAT as you will one from last year.</p>

<p>The main thing you want to do this early in your LSAT preparation process is to establish an effective LSAT study plan and effective LSAT study techniques.</p>

<p>If you struggle with that, you can follow the link on my profile to see the free resources the LSAT prep company I work for provides to help you get started.</p>

<p>In fact, here is a link to a free article on how to establish an effective LSAT study plan:</p>
