Reviewing homework, practice sets, and exams is an important part of LSAT prep.

Reviewing a question is easy, since answer explanations are available for questions you have completed in your MyBlueprint account. 

In this article, we will look at what an answer explanation looks like, and walk through the best way to review a question.

Here is what an answer explanation looks like:

The best way to review a question, is to ask the following questions: 

1. Did I follow the correct approach to the question?

Review the prompt, and question type to make sure you identified the question correctly.

2. Did I misread anything important?

Re-read the stimulus, and keep an eye on the instructor mark-up to check that you correctly identified important keywords, premises, and conclusions. Then check out the summary below to make sure you correctly understood the stimulus!

3. Was my anticipation of the answer in line with what I should have been looking for? 

Click on anticipation, below the stimulus, to read an instructor's anticipation for the question and make sure your thought process was on track when you answered the question!

4. Why is the wrong answer wrong?

Click on incorrect answer choices to expand explanations about why they are not correct.

You can also ask yourself:

  1. How can I know that a similar wrong answer will be wrong next time? 
  2. Why is the wrong answer tempting, and why doesn’t that make it right? 

Note: Logic Games do not have answer explanations for incorrect answer choices, since they rule out the incorrect answers in the explanation for the correct answer.

5. Why is the right answer right? 

Click on the correct answer to expand the explanation about why it is correct!

You can also ask yourself:

  1. How can I spot a similar right answer next time?

Many questions will have extended video or audio answer explanations, or downloadable PDFs, that you can use as well!

Your goal should be to come out of each question you review with a better approach for the next time you see something similar. By analyzing your mistakes, you can avoid making them again!
