202 was quite a year. You may be signed up for the LSAT Flex exam and are wondering, what's the best way to practice? We recommend continuing to take the full exam. Why? Keep reading.
- There are many benefits to taking a full practice exam, scoring is only one small benefit. It’s much more important to use practice exams as an opportunity to learn about your strengths and weaknesses as a test taker, to get experience working under timed conditions, and to implement test strategies
- LSAC has not released guidelines on how LSAT-Flex exams are scored (i.e., how a raw score on a three-section exam is converted to a 120-180 scaled score), we can’t provide accurate or predictive scoring of three-section exams. We do know *exactly* how four-section exams we offer are scored, however. Further, unless you consistently score *dramatically* better or worse on Logical Reasoning than you do on Reading Comp and Logic Games (and this disparity is rare), the difference between your score on a four- or five-section exam and your score on a three-section LSAT-Flex exam will likely be at most 1 or 2 points.
- If we offer you a practice test as a three-section exam, the licensing agreement we have with LSAC prevents us from also offering that exam to you as a four-section exam.
- We’ve also heard reports from students who took the LSAT-Flex exam after taking four- and five-section practice exams who claimed that they felt especially sharp throughout the entire LSAT-Flex exam
As always, work hard, and good luck!
