LSAT Curriculum

Apex has the most robust LSAT preparation syllabus available on the market today. We focus on enhancing your critical and creative thinking skills. This leads to a stronger LSAT, but also serves as a toolkit for your time in law school and your legal career beyond.

Apex takes care to address test anxiety, time management, alternative solution paths, and test signaling so that you can use the LSAT’s underlying structure to your advantage.


Pathways & Prompting

Every person approaches problems and organizes data differently. Our curriculum focuses on how your personal tendencies define strategies, and roadblocks, unique to you.

We iterate towards those solution paths of greatest comfort and efficiency while teaching you to prompt creative thought in a structured manner that will help you solve the most inextricable problems the LSAT has to offer.

Time Management

Time management is one of the most crucial skills on the LSAT and it is often overshadowed by the problem solving itself.

Our program utilizes methodologies that teach you how to manage your time effortlessly. This reduces anxiety and cognitive load – shifting your focus to performance, not watching the clock.

Self Preparation

Getting the most out of your personal study time is essential to achieve an elite score. We recommend that for each hour spent with your tutor, you should devote at least three hours to self preparation.

Our curriculum is designed to enhance your self learning skills and emphasize your development as a learner. We can’t be with you on the exam, so we make sure that once the time comes, you don’t need us over your shoulder.

Test Signals

This lesson teaches you how to leverage the test’s structure to your advantage. It is part of the core Apex philosophy that test structure influences the best ways to achieve.

Explore how the LSAT can tell you how to best beat it. This skill will not only be helpful during your LSAT preparation, but will change the way you solve problems in other aspects of your life as well.

LSAT Test Breakdown

Logical Reasoning

Analytical Reasoning

  • Four logic games
  • Four to seven multiple-choice questions per game – about 20 questions in total
  • 35 minutes to complete this section

Although this section is informally known as the Logic Games section, the situations presented in each of the 4 games require laser-like focus and a sound analytical mind to process. This section tests your capability to deduce how rules affect conclusions and relationships. You will be required to analyze concepts like object positions, actions and consequences. 

Reading Comprehension

  • One section

This is not your typical reading comprehension section and although you are presented with passages to read through and questions related to these passages, your approach will have to be sharpened. Your goal in this section is to read the text actively in order to identify the main points easily. You will need to draw inferences, find information, solidify main ideas, and draw conclusions about the passages. Furthermore you will need to rapidly grasp the point and identify paradoxes and contextual clues.
