December 2013 LSAT jitters? You're not alone
Shitting bricks about the December 2013 LSAT? You shouldn’t be, if you’ve put in the weeks/months of practice time that most students need. And if you haven’t put in the time? Well, it’s too late anyway. Either way, there’s no point in defacating masonry. Here are a couple letters from students lined up to take this Saturday’s test, along with my advice.Read more
June 2001 (PT 34) Logic Game 4, Questions 19-24 (Souderton and Randsborough)
Here’s another game that appears on most lists of “Logic Games That Make Me Want to Kill Myself.” Many students get so perplexed by this one that they actually believe that there are errors in it. It’s a shame, because the same students that think the game contains a mistake are right on the brink of discovering the game’s biggest inference. Enjoy!
October 2013 LSAT — What I’ve heard so far
I had about 30 students sit for the test yesterday, and the reports are starting to trickle in. Below, I’ll post what I’ve heard so far. Keep in mind that I’ve been working with an exceptionally talented group these last three months… these people make my job easy, by being so bright and working so damn hard.
I’ll start with an amusing report from a student who I talked off the ledge a few days before the test… she was having a panic attack and ready to give up on the test entirely. I talked her into sitting for the exam, and it looks like she came through it pretty well.Read more
June 2003 (PT 40) Logic Game 3, Questions 11-17 (Zephyr Airlines)
This game shows up on most lists of “Top Ten Most Difficult Games of All Time, OMG, FML, etcetera,” but it’s simply not that hard as long as you improvise. Yes, if you attempt to force this game into a typical grouping game diagram you will get screwed… what you need is a map. Hope this helps!Read more

“Breaking the LSAT” audio interview (Part 1)
Recently, I talked with Jacob Erez (Brooklyn, NY) at some length about LSAT strategies. I’ve broken it into three parts, which I’ll post over the next few days. Enjoy!
I’d love to hear what you think, so please drop a comment or question below. Thanks!Read more
Come meet me… and get free stuff!
I just wanted to announce a couple upcoming events. First, here’s a testimonial!
“It only takes a few minutes with Nathan to realize his class is not what you expected from an LSAT prep course. He’s not lecturing you, he’s not bullshitting you, he’s not trying to sell you some magic LSAT beans. He’s making you argue, making you laugh, and making you pay attention.
If you want a class that will make you learn, or at least, help you figure out what the LSAT and law school is really all about, it won’t take you long to see that Fox LSAT is very different, in a good way, from the other guys.”

Why the LSAT doesn’t allow pens and mechanical pencils
Last month, I wrote a post entitled “LSAT test center restrictions are tighter than TSA passenger requirements.” In it, I complained about the LSAC’s seemingly arbitrary restriction against pens and mechanical pencils: ”If they don’t work on the Scantron sheets, then I understand”¦ your answer won’t count if you fill in the bubbles with a pen. But why are students prohibited from even bringing them to the test center?!”Read more
June 2013 LSAT, Reading Comprehension, Q27
It’s been a hell of a last nine days! The June 2013 LSAT was released last Monday, July 2. Since then, I’ve been working nonstop to get explanations posted for the entire test. I did video for all four logic games, crowdsourced the majority of the Logical Reasoning, and wrote the Reading Comprehension explanations myself because I wouldn’t wish those on anybody. This is the last post in the series… 100 blog posts in all. Thanks so much for reading, for participating, and for telling a friend. I hope you’ve found the explanations helpful.Read more
