About the LSAT
The LSAT is composed of five 35-minute multiple-choice sections and one 30-minute writing section. The multiple choice sections are broken down as follows: one Reading Comprehension, one Analytical Reasoning, two Logical Reasoning, and one Experimental. (The Experimental questions will be like those of one of the previously mentioned sections.)

The Reading Comprehension questions on the LSAT are designed to test your ability to understand complex passages
and make connections between the different parts of those passages. The questions are aimed at testing your ability to "read between the lines," as you will be required to do in reading legal cases. This session of the Prep workshop will focus
on teaching the skills necessary to read critically and accurately under time pressure.
