Is there a service where I can practice the Flex exam?

Recommended Posts

I don't feel confident dong 3 sections and then scaling my score as if it was a 4 section test because the LR might have been of unequal difficulty and skewed my results. Is there a service where I can practice 3 section  flex tests that reliably reflect the score? I think 7sage has something like this but it costs quite a bit b/c it includs all the prep and lessons as well which I dont need.

 

tl:dr: Can I buy premade flex tests to practice on?

There’s a couple flex versions on Law Hub, through LSAC. I’m not sure if the paid version has more flex tests, or if the rest are all full LSATs.

LSAT Demon has an option to take historical 4-section tests in a flex format; I found the score conversion to 3 sections to be reliable, and the UI resembles the flex to enough of an extent that the muscle memory transfers over (in my experience)

The only reason I can see why you would want to do the FLEX version in practice is to try to predict how you will do on the actual LSAT. 

But you can do that almost as accurately yourself as you can through a simulated FLEX put together by a third party -- that third party would have to make a simulated FLEX out of a regular LSAT on your behalf, so it's not an exact science either. 

For study purposes, you'd be better off doing the whole thing.

I suggest doing all 4 sections of every PT you have bought and paid for, or else you are wasting a quarter of every PT. Every fresh PT is a valuable study resource.

To deal with our concern that some LG sections are harder than others, you could average your score of the two LG sections on every 4 section PT you take.

For myself, LG was my weakest section, so my FLEX scores were always lower than my 4 section regular PTs.

I'd second this. I used this service for my flex studying as well, and the layout is not identical to the actual exam but is similar enough. I also found the scoring to be pretty consistent. It is fairly expensive (in my opinion), but I thought it was worth it.

7Sage has an option to stimulate the Lsat Flex with past LSATs.

    • Hey guys, has anyone been waitlisted yet? My anxiety is growing quickly by the day lol. What do you think it means that they have started the wait list? do you think they’re done with acceptances?
    • what are your stats? and how did you find out?
    • I echo what Deadpool said. There are a lot of lawyers in policy roles, such as in the PM and EC pay groups, trying to break into the LP group. Unfortunately, internal postings for LP-01 positions (generally, lawyers with 0-4 years experience post-call) are very rare because the DOJ fills LP-01 positions with their own articling students and the SCC/FCA/FC/TCC law clerks through unadvertised processes. As a result, there’s not much use for internal only competitions and if they need additional people they’ll generally run an external competition. Everyone I’ve heard of who transferred from a government policy role into the DOJ did so through networking and getting an unadvertised appointment. So if you take the policy job and want to get into the DOJ, do not rely on getting in through a formal internal posting. 
    • I can't say I love it either but in a sense it's the most holistic way to decide every application on its own individual merits instead of pitting them against another application.  I also prefer gin with my tonic.
