LSAT made easier (tech-wise only ... sorry)

Transition is never easy or perfect. Take the LSAT, which last year went from paper and pencil to digital. 

Some liked it, some did not. 

On Reddit, some complained of screen glare, delayed starts, faulty timers, difficutling highlighting ...

Well, the Law School Admission Council, which adminsters the test, is launching two new Digital LSAT preparation products aimed to help law school candidates improve their skills and feel more confident as they take the LSAT in the new form.

These new products are part of the LSAC LawHub, a new online legal education portal providing educational content and other services to help support students.

The two new Digital LSAT preparation products are designed to complement existing test prep tools and services, providing more options to meet the individual needs and learning styles of today’s students.

Both digital products include self-paced and simulated test modes, a record of the student’s practice test history and instant calculation of practice test score reports.

The new products are:

Official LSAT Prep, which is free and included when a student registers for a free LSAC account, offers two full practice tests using the authentic Digital LSAT test environment launched in 2019. 

Official LSAT Prep Plus, which is available as a one-year subscription for $99, offers more than 60 practice tests in the authentic Digital LSAT test environment. 

 Students using either product can choose to share their practice test performance with any of LSAC’s Official LSAT Content Licensees, such as commercial test preparation companies or one-on-one coaches.

“Now that the LSAT has moved to a digital format, these new digital tools will provide students the opportunity to practice in a similar test environment, develop their critical thinking skills, and identify areas for improvement,” said Erik Krajnikovich, director of product development at LSAC. 

Students who qualify for an LSAT test fee waiver will also automatically qualify for a free one-year subscription to Official LSAT Prep Plus, with more than 60 practice tests.

In addition to these new tools, LSAC will continue to offer other LSAT prep resources, including free Khan Academy Official LSAT Prep, which offers the equivalent of dozens of practice tests at no cost to students, and through a wide range of publishers and test prep companies that license test content.

LSAC will also continue to offer select publications of preparation materials in alternative accessible formats for candidates who need them.
