The LSAT reading comprehension questions can be tricky. The test-writers pick obscure passages so that they can test your comprehension instead of your knowledge, but, if you study with Nova Press, you’ll be prepared for whatever they may throw at you!
Nova Press’s Master the LSAT breaks down the reading comprehension section into six main ideas: Introduction, Reading Methods, The Six Questions, Pivotal Words, The Three Step Method, and Extra Reading. Each section brings you one step closer to mastering the LSAT. The “Introduction” helps you to understand the structure of the LSAT, gives suggestions on what you can expect as far as content on the exam, and some simple hints for avoiding being overwhelmed on test day. “Reading Methods” debunks the benefits of “speed reading” on the LSAT, as well as other common misconceptions on “best approaches” to the test.
“The Six Questions” is the section that really delves into the content. It helps you to understand the overarching categories of LSAT reading comprehension questions. After giving a sample reading excerpt, Nova Press walks you through the questions and how to identify the key aspects of each. By using a real passage, you can see actual application of the process, instead of learning in abstract. Then you get a chance to work through a passage on your own. Hints are available if you need them, along with the answers so you can check yourself. Lastly, you get chance to test yourself. A full reading passage with questions is given, giving you a chance to apply everything you learned in the chapter. Answers and solutions are provided, but they are in the section following, so you can check when you’re ready.
“Pivotal Words” helps you to figure out exactly what is going on in the passages. Often authors will put in a few key words that could completely change the meaning of the text if misunderstood. This section outlines exactly what to look for and then gives you practice in identifying them in the reading. Another full reading passage with questions is also included.
In the “Three-Step Method,” all of the other material you learned is condensed into a technique for you to use on the test. Combining the material covered previously in the Reading Comprehension chapter, this method streamlines and focuses your reading in order to improve your comprehension. Once again, you are given a “Mentor Exercise” that walks through the steps with you with a full reading passage. Then, you are given a full passage with questions to work through on your own. The last section, “Extra Reading,” does just what its title implies: gives you extra reading and questions to practice with.
