The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) is a national admissions test for students interested in going to law school.

The LSAT covers the following:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Analytical Reasoning
  • Logical Reasoning

Most test questions are multiple choice, although you will need to supply a timed writing sample as part of the test. Expect to spend a half-day at the testing center.

Getting Ready

Check for LSAT study materials at your local library or bookstore. Here are some other ways to prepare:

Think you're ready for the real thing?

Simply find a testing center and register online. The registration fee is more than $180, and additional fees may apply.

Scores to Aim For

Your total LSAT score can range from 120 to 180. Your score report will also include a percentage showing where you rank in comparison with others who took the test during the previous 3 years.

What if you want a higher score?

Taking the test again is a good idea if you didn't feel well on test day or were distracted. Research shows that scores usually improve slightly for those who take the test a second time. However, your score may also drop. And law schools must see all of your scores, not just your highest.
