As you can’t get a partial credit in IR and each question has multiple parts, it is best to focus on getting answers right than getting to all of them. Prioritize quality over quantity. For instance, say an IR question has three statements and you need to pick the right choice for each. That means, to get any credit, you’ll have to choose the correct option for all three statements. In a situation where you have figured out the first two questions, it makes sense to attempt the third question. On the other hand, if you’re thrown off by the first two questions, it’s not worth wasting your energy on the third one. It’s better to cut your losses, skip the question, and move on to the next.
SmartGrid is available for the Diagnostic and Full-Length Tests. If you select to take one of these tests, a pop-up box prompts you with the question: "Do you wish to take the test using SmartGrid?" If you select "Yes," another prompt appears: "Turn to the appropriate page in your test booklet." In SmartGrid mode, the questions will not appear on the screen. Questions can be found in a folder entitled, "LSATTEST" on your LSAT CD-ROM. The test questions are in .PDF format, which can be easily printed. Once you've done so, you can follow along by reading the test questions on the booklet page and entering your answers onscreen in the SmartGrid.
