This series of lesson articles will give you an in-depth overview of the LSAT test. They cover the basic anatomy and structure of the LSAT test – as well as some frequently asked questions about the LSAT test — to give you the background
As you build your knowledge of the test, it is essential that you get as much practice with the TestSherpa concepts as possible. One of the best ways to practice is with actual released tests. We suggest the following books because they are cost-effective collections of 10 released LSAT tests and because our future low-cost tele-conference classes will use them in our discussions:
This series of articles will demonstrate all you need to know about conclusions for the LSAT test:
- LSAT Conclusions: an Introduction
- Finding Conclusions on the LSAT Test: Advanced Techniques

Weakening and Strengthening on the LSAT Test
A common LSAT question type asks you to weaken or strengthen an argument:
Running Out of Time on the LSAT Test
This series of lesson articles discusses what to do if you find yourself running out of time on the LSAT test:
LSAT Parallel Reasoning
Parallel reasoning questions ask you to identify arguments with similar logic. The argument in the stimulus contains certain patterns that you will match to the arguments in the answer choices.
LSAT Logical Reasoning
The TestSherpa process is a proven method for tackling LSAT Logical Reasoning questions. Our students have been getting high LSAT Logical Reasoning scores for years using this method. The process is the key to high scores, so stick with it until it becomes second nature.
- LSAT Logical Reasoning: An Introduction
- Logical Reasoning Questions
- Logical Reasoning Arguments
- Logical Reasoning Answers
- Logical Reasoning Elimination
LSAT Assumption Questions
Dealing with assumptions is the most critical skill you can develop for the LSAT test:

LSAT Formal Logic
Learning some tricks for handling LSAT Formal Logic can translate into some quick points on test day:
LSAT Logical Reasoning Wrong Answer Choices
Sometimes the difference between getting a point right or wrong on the LSAT test is simply a matter of being able to eliminate the wrong answers. This series of articles discusses how to recognize and eliminate wrong answer choices in the logical reasoning section of the LSAT test:
- LSAT Logical Reasoning Wrong Answer Choices: Introduction
- LSAT Out of Scope Answers
- Right Answer, Wrong Question

LSAT Logical Fallacies

LSAT Analytical Reasoning
The Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT tests you with puzzles or games. These puzzles represent real life situations in which you are not given all facts. Your job is to make certain deductions based on the facts you do have.
LSAT Logic Games Method
As with all sections of the LSAT, TestSherpa gives you a simple approach to Analytical Reasoning. By examining each puzzle systematically with the TestSherpa method, you will develop the familiarity and confidence you need to earn a high score.
LSAT Sequencing Games
Sequencing is the most common skill used on the Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT. Fortunately, sequencing is something you do everyday:
- LSAT Sequencing Games: an Introduction
- Sequencing Game Questions
- LSAT Practice Sequencing Game 1
- LSAT Practice Sequencing Game 2
- LSAT Practice Sequencing Game 3
LSAT Grouping Games
Grouping is the second most common skill used in the Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT.
LSAT Matching Games
LSAT Matching Games are a common game type on the LSAT. They’re not as common as sequencing or grouping, but the skills used in matching often appear in the Analytical Reasoning section of the test.
Reading on the LSAT Test
The LSAT test is packed with densely worded arguments and passages. Half of the challenge of the LSAT test is to analyze and draw out hidden assumptions and inferences made in the test; however, the other half is just being able to get a basic understanding of the passages.
LSAT Reading Comprehension Method
Reading Comprehension tests your ability to quickly read long, dense and boring passages and understand the main points the author is making in each. That’s certainly a skill you will need in law school. In this series, we examine the TestSherpa approach to Reading Comprehension:
- LSAT Reading Comprehension Method
- LSAT Reading Comprehension Outlines
- LSAT Reading Comprehension Answers
Reading Comprehension Questions
Law school candidates are often stressed out about the long boring passages they find in the Reading Comprehension section. These passages may feature unfamiliar topics, but one thing is certain: the questions will be completely familiar to TestSherpa students.
- Reading Comprehension Questions: an introduction
- Reading Comp Macro Questions
- Reading Comp Inference Questions
- Reading Comp Detail Questions
- Reading Comp Why and How Questions
Natural Science Passages in LSAT Reading Comprehension
Science passages typically involve topics in biology, chemistry, physics and medicine. Even though science passages can be intimidating (mostly because few test takers and pre-law students are science majors), you will find that the structure of these passages is very similar to the other passages on the test.

- LSAT Reading Comp Outlines For Science
- LSAT Science Passage Questions
Humanities Passages in LSAT Reading Comprehension
Humanities passages typically involve literature, philosophy, ethics and language. Your approach in a humanities passage should not change — you still use the TestSherpa method.

- LSAT Reading Comp Outlines for Humanities
- LSAT Humanities Passage Questions
LSAT Written Essay
Perhaps the most misunderstood portion of the entire LSAT is the writing sample. You may have friends who have told you that the writing sample is not an important part of the test. Don’t believe them. Even though it is unscored, in some cases it could represent the most important part of your file.
