Ten Best LSAT Practice Tests

Completing LSAT practice tests is an important part of preparing for the LSAT. Practice tests will help prepare you for answering questions under time constraints and condition your mind and body for the rigors of taking the 4-hour exam on test day. Almost all LSAT test prep companies offer LSAT practice tests that are actual LSAT exams released by the Law School Admissions Council. Many also develop their own practice LSAT tests. The key is to use practice tests that also offer detailed explanations of each answer. Here are 10 of the best resources for LSAT practice tests.

One of the greatest benefits of taking practice LSATs is to determine the question types for which you need additional practice. Each time you take a practice test you should carefully analyze your correct and incorrect answers to make sure you understand your errors and your correct choices. Then, as you work through practice questions, devote additional time to question types that you missed on the practice tests. As you progress through your study schedule and educate yourself on question types and strategies using the resources you have chosen (strategy guides, coursework, etc.), you should see an improvement in your practice test scores.
