LSAT Guessing Tips With a good guessing strategy, you can improve your LSAT score by up to 15 points or more. LSAT Study Blog LSAT Guessing Tips Post Why Should You Guess? • First and foremost, on the LSAT there is no penalty for a wrong answer. You have nothing to lose by guessing, only to gain. • With absolutely no clue as to the correct answer, you still have a 1 in 5 chance of getting the answer right. Do you Know Some? • The first goal in any guessing strategy is to eliminate as many answers as possible. • If you know for a fact that two of the answers are definitely not correct, you’ve already improved your odds of answering correctly to 3 in 5 instead of 1 in 5. Synonyms? • Look for synonyms amongst the answers. • There can only be one correct answer. If two answers mean the same thing, they can’t both be the correct answer. Logically then, neither of them is right. Unless you have some other reason to think one is right, you can discount both of the synonyms. Study Incorrect Answers • During your preparation, be sure to study the incorrect answers on the practice exams as well as the correct answers. • When reading the possible answers, you might not recognize the correct answer, but you may remember one of the wrong answers. • You can then cross out that wrong answer and focus on the remaining choices. Check the Structure • The wording and structure of the question can give away some hints. • Some of the answers may flat out not make sense with the question. • Use your general knowledge to get rid of any answers that couldn’t be correct. Your Best Guess • Any guess is better than none. Do not leave any questions blank. Once you have gotten rid of as many wrong answers as possible, take a stab at what you think may be the correct answer out of the remaining choices. • For more check out LSAT Study Tips
