What is on the LSAT?
The test consists of five sections plus a 35 minute writing sample. The writing sample is currently not scored, but copies are sent to law schools. The five multiple-choice sections are comprised of:
Two Logical Reasoning Sections in which you read a short passage and answer questions about the arguments presented. Questions test ability to identify assumptions, analyze the structure of arguments and draw logical conclusions.
Reading Comprehension in which you read complex essays on a variety of topics. Questions test understanding of the texts. You may be asked to identify themes and to draw inferences about facts and theories presented.
Analytical Reasoning (logic games) in which you are presented with a scenario that gives you information about a structure of relationships (such as groups, sequences, or spatial relations). Test takers typically make charts and diagrams to manipulate data and draw conclusions based on the given relationships.
Experimental Section. May be any of the above. Results on this section do not affect your score; you are not told which section is experimental.
