Best Highlighters for the LSAT
« on: June 08, 2004, 03:45:01 AM »
I have lots of highlighters but they have wide tips.  I was wondering if there are any highlighters out there with somewhat finer tips?  I looked in my local stationery store but didn't find any.  Does anyone know if Staples carries them?

Thanks and good luck on the 14th.

Fiddling with highlighters will take too much time...I'd just underline.

Just because they say you *can* have a highligher, doesn't mean you *should* have a highlighter.

good question, i would think for the reading comp, but i would imagine that the ink would sink through the paper, since it's that very thin almost see-through crappy type.

I'm thinking that highlighting on the actual LSAT would be a very bad idea.  I can see the point in highlighting during practice if you're trying to get down the concepts of topic, scope, etc... But on the real thing that would just cause more stress for most people I think.

I used highlighters during all my practices and homework.  I always finished with 5 or 6 minutes to spare.  Underlining just ONE word in a PR question would help me avoid missinga sublte distinction or nuance.

Thanks everybody for your comments, but my question was not WHETHER I should use highlighters, because for me it's a given.  I want to know specifically if there is any brand of highlighters that have a finer point than the ones I have. Please can someone help me answer this question.
