So the question is, will LSAC permit you to bring only a highlighter or can you bring more than one and use more than one at a time? For example, pink is main main conclusion, organge is evidence, green is opinion.

For example, pink is main main conclusion, organge is evidence, green is opinion.I will go further than Jeffort (and against the grain of nearly the entire educational establishment) to say that if you've fallen into the habit of highlighting, you are wasting your time and talent. If one could look at a law classroom from above, one will see a rainbow of highlighted passages . . . and nearly none of the highlight-happy souls will have a clue as to the deeper meaning of what it is they've so earnestly highlighted.The LSAC testers are interested in logical ability, not in some mechanical aptitude. Put away the highlighters. Put away even a single highlighter. Take several dozen exams, under real-world conditions, and then take a few dozen more. And a few dozen after that.Sorry to seem even a bit rude, but that's the take from at least one corner. Highlighting (and, in the classroom, note-taking) are not just silly, they are a distraction from what you really do need to be doing.Thane.
So, don't highlight, do think and analyze carefully, and get a coloring book for fun when not studying to put the highlighters to good use.
