Highlighter, or just a pencil?
« on: January 17, 2004, 04:39:06 PM »
Has anyone used a highlighter on their actual LSAT?

No, but they told us we could use it or a pencil.

BUT no pens.  Go figure.

I underlined a few things, but it didn't help me.

Unless you routinely used a highlighter while you were studying, don't even think about using one on the LSAT.  This sounds really stupid, but you have to practice using it. Fumbling between the highlighter and the pencil to darken the bubbles is a nightmare. Talk about a time waster.

I thought I might use a highlighter so when I sutdied and practed and timed myself, I tried it...NOT!  Stick with the pencil, unless you have some obsessive compulsion with that yellow marker being in your hand.

So basically you can write on the booklet ... I was not really sure whether I could write on the margins, as it really helps me, especially with the Reading Comprehension section and the Games ... and given the fact that you'll use a pencil to mark the answers, I don't have a problem with using that same pencil to write on the booklet
