An extremely useful tool on the new digital exam are annotations, which are made to mimic the real LSAT interface as much as possible. On the Blueprint LSAT exam interface, just like on the real LSAT, you will have the ability to underline or highlight a passage.

Underline

If you choose to underline, the underline option is not colored and will show up just as a black line under the words. Underlining is a great tool for Reading Comprehension and marking important details such as proper names, dates, and definitions.

Highlighting

The highlighting option allows you to choose one of three colors: orange, pink, and yellow. The different highlighter options are extremely useful for the reading comprehension section where you have to keep track of several different aspects of the passage e.g. author's attitude and conclusion (yellow), secondary structures (orange), and other viewpoints (pink). These annotations will allow you to not only organize the passage and understand it’s structure, but also to be able to quickly find relevant information if you need to go back and reread or look for specific details.

You can also make use of the highlight option on the logical reasoning section. It is especially useful in the characterization and operation family where distinguishing the different parts of a stimulus is crucial and identifying the conclusion by highlighting is critical to success. Another great use of the highlighting tool is marking the prompt whenever it’s asking you to do something unusual such as an “EXCEPT” question or a “must be false” question, that way you are reminded of what kind of answer you’re looking for as you’re going through the question.
