A few weeks ago, I read one of those articles about how sitting at desks is bad for your back, curves your spine, yadda yadda.
The good news: I learned that, aside from standing desks, I could ALSO improve my posture by elevating my computer while sitting.
Not having to get off my lazy ass appealed to me, so I pursued this option first.
I thought a phone book might do the job, but turns out, they don't exist anymore.
So, I looked around...
And noticed a couple of LSAT books (surprise, surprise).
Cool thing was, I put them under my computer, and...it worked!
I was able to raise my computer...A LOT:
Why, you ask?
Because most LSAT books are really RRREEEAAALLLY long.
Like 300-500 pages or more. And the ones on the shorter side usually only cover ONE of the LSAT's THREE sections.
So, if you do the math, even estimating only 350 pages / book...
That's more than 1,000 pages.
HOLY COW, THAT'S A LOTTA READING!
I don't know about you, but I'm not about to read that much anytime soon.
When I was studying for the LSAT, I felt like I had to read EVERYTHING in order to truly understand the test.
Since then, I've learned a lot of LSAT books are actually much longer than they need to be.
I have two theories:
1. People typically associate the length of the book with its value. The longer it is, the more likely you are to buy it (and the more they can charge).
2. The books market the companies' LSAT prep classes. You buy the book, have trouble getting through it and think the problem is with YOU, not THEM. You give up on self-study and sign up for their prep class.
Don't get me wrong - I don't think these prep companies are TRYING to hurt people. I've met a lot of the people who work at these companies, and they're good, nice people.
But, I don't think making self-study as easy as possible is their #1 priority.
I just CAN'T shake the feeling that you don't need to read 500-1,000 pages in order to prepare for the LSAT.
In fact, everything I've ever written about the LSAT is based on one idea:
It just doesn't take THAT long to explain something.
But Mark Twain said it best:
"If I had more time, I would have made it shorter."
On this website, I'll often explain in ONE ARTICLE something that takes them an entire CRAPTER to cover.
(Yeah, I said "crapter." Just making sure you're paying attention.)
Anywho, over the years, I noticed a LOT of students were also struggling to get through those books, trying to figure out which parts to skip.
Sooooo.....here's exactly what I've done for you:
I've written short guides to LSAT's Logic Games, Logical Reasoning, and Reading Comprehension sections.
I've ALSO written a guide to the law school admissions process covering the personal statement, résumé, and everything else you need to do.
These are short guides to each section that you can (and will) actually read in full, then refer back to throughout your LSAT studying.
I based them on the advice I share with my beginner students during our first tutoring sessions. Each guide gives you my intro to that topic - general advice covering the basics - in less than 10 pages.
These guides are for you if:
* your schedule's busy and you don't have a lot of time to study.
* you're feeling a little overwhelmed with where to start and don't have the luxury of reading everything out there.
* you just want the essential material to get you going.
* you feel like the books you're using are wordy and add unnecessary info.
These are NOT for you if:
* you're already scoring in the 170s. (You're better off with my explanations for specific LSAT questions.)
* you only want guides that cover EEEEEVVVVERRRYTHING. (Buy one of those 500+ page books instead.)
