Mastering the Law School Exam is designed to provide students with a knowledgeable, reasonable, and rational voice to navigate the intricacies of law school exams. This book is practical rather than theoretical where the emphasis is on providing the type of detailed examples necessary to show students precisely "how to do it" and "how to write it." By working with numerous illustrations in the context of substantive law, students learn to: Fill the gap between what the professor refers to as learning to "think like a lawyer" and the actual means for doing so. Create a successful path from note-taking -to outlining-to exam writing. Identify the basic skills that exams seek to test and the precise manner in which they are tested. Become familiar with the general types of law school exams through examples and detailed analyses of sample answers. Use the language of the law in the writing of issues, statements of the rule, and analysis of the facts

The LSAT -- a nationally-given test for law school candidates -- is an admission requirement at most law schools. This manual offers six (?) full-length model LSATs, with answers, explanations, and analysis sheets to help students practice and analyze each of the test's three question types -- Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, and Logical Reasoning. The book also offers preparation for the LSAT's final part, the Writing Sample. An optional Windows "RM" software program can be purchased with the book. The software presents computer versions of the manual's tests, all of which can be taken in either the timed Simulated Test Mode or the untimed Practice Mode, which gives immediate access to correct answers. The software also offers an electronic note-taking pad, a cross-out feature that allows test-takers to analyze possible answers by process of elimination, and a highlight marking feature that lets students mark questions may wish to return to.
