The Digital LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) Field Test is being offered by LSAC free of charge. It is intended for those who plan to take the LSAT in the near future.
The Digital LSAT Field Test includes actual LSAT questions, but instead of an LSAT score, you will receive a detailed performance report describing the number of questions you answered correctly for various question types and skill areas. Like the LSAT, each field test will consist of five sections of multiple-choice questions—but they will be administered on a tablet. There will also be a writing sample, which the test taker will type using a keyboard attached to the tablet. The Digital LSAT Field Test will be given under conditions similar to those of an actual LSAT administration, and the timing of the sections will be identical (35 minutes for each section).
This is a good way to prepare for the actual LSAT you will take at a later date. Check out this site for more details include the date and locations. You must apply by August 25.
