You have decided to run a marathon … heaven knows why. The longest distance you’ve ever run is … maybe a couple miles? It’s hard to remember … you accomplished that athletic feat at a so-called “fun run” in middle school, and that was so long ago that it’s hard to remember the exact distance.
Figuring out timing on the LSAT can feel impossible — you might wonder how you’ll ever be able to get through a whole section, let alone devote time to those “extra” steps like anticipating the right answer or diagramming. The catch-22, of course, is that taking the time for those extra steps is necessary (see what we did there?) for getting through a section with adequate time — if you skip them, you’re more likely to waste time and be tempted by wrong answers.
