If you can, take a logic class. I took one in undergrad and it definitely helped me with both the AR and LR sections.

incorrect- the last lsat change was the writing sample addition of the argument prompt...which in my opinion was a great addition and a much better way to measure one's success in law school.
I believe that modification was December, 2005.

hey, if you consider unscored part of test to be more important than lipo...

I'm going to have to agree with D on this one. Relax man. ALOT can happen in college....you may decide your real passion is Oragami or something. If you tweak on this board for the next four years, you're gonna be freaking out before the LSAT. With that said, it's unlikely the test will change enough in the next few years to negate any studying you between now and then.

I didn't say it was more important; I said it was a great addition and a much better way to measure one's success in law school- that doesn't mean that it's scored.  Just means that I think the argument prompt is a good way to measure one's success in law school. Nevertheless, I do think it should be scored  ;)

No, even "technically," it's definitely part of the test. Why do the proctors make you sit there for 30 minutes doing it if it's not part of the test, and why is it sent to law schools if it's not part of the test? It's just not scored by LSAC.

I read somewhere that they were making the LSAT a CAT by 2007, has anyone heard this?
