How to study LSAT "on the go"?

Postby preamble » Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:37 am

I have a pretty long commute each day (1+ hour each way by train) and I was wondering if there were any ways that one could effectively study in such conditions. Flashcards? Reading prep books? Or is it pointless? It just feels like such a big chunk of time and it'd be nice if I could devote (at least some of) it to the LSAT in some way.

I think conditional reasoning flash cards can be helpful but that's kind of like a 1 train ride thing

Get 7Sage and you can watch the video lessons on your commute. That's actually how I did a great deal of my prep initially.

1.) Memorize formal logic - every way anything can be presented to you - "if/then; only; no/unless" etc. and how to recognize it in a reasoning prompt.

2.)Become proficient at recognizing conclusions

3.) Practice by question type.

4.) Move onto full tests.

I did logic games on the NYC subway. I didn't do full sections, just individual games that I tried to complete correctly in under 5 min. Maybe you can do the same thing? It definitely helped me learn to tune out distractions.

In the beginning a lot of my LR and LG studying was done on the train/bus. Most of the explanations for LR questions are on the Manhattan Prep website and 7Sage videos on YouTube thoroughly go over every LG questions.

Best of Luck.
