Checking other answers

When we actually take the LSAT, should we check all answers, or after we find an answer we know to be correct, should we move on to the next? I just worry that checking every answer in some longer more time-consuming questions could take away precious time for other questions.

Hi @21mhunter21, thanks for this post. It's a very good question, but there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. It depends on how you are doing with timing, how accurate your practice is, what your target score is, etc.

In untimed practice, students often find that actively evaluating each and every answer choice on Logical Reasoning questions, and being able to clearly and correctly articulate why the correct answer is right and the four incorrect answers are wrong, helps them develop the skills needed to perform optimally on Test Day. Timed practice often leaves students insufficient time to do this on every question, but doing this in untimed practice can help you improve your speed and accuracy over time.

Hope that's somewhat helpful! Best of luck.

How many un-timed practice tests should we take?
