Ann Arbor LSAT Classes?

Ann Arbor LSAT Classes?
« on: July 09, 2008, 07:52:36 PM »
Anyone have any experience with LSAT courses/instructors in Ann Arbor?  I'm thinking about signing up for a course from Kaplan, Power Score or Test Masters.

The instructor for Test Masters is listed as "Jake Walker"  Anyone know anything about him?  Power Score doesn't say who their instructor is. 

Test Masters starts soon, so if you have advice, I could use it.  I like the idea of taking it sooner than waiting, but if Power score is better, I may take them instead.  I guess the general idea is Kaplan is hit or miss?

haha, I took the weekend course with Jake in Ann Arbor. I found him really helpful but I've no one to compare him too so it's hard to tell. I found with the weekend course, a lot of the ideas were redundant because I had done both the bibles, but it was really helpful to do things in a group setting (and it was almost like private tutoring since there were only 4 other people in that course) and just say 'why is a. a stronger answer choice than b.' I thought he was pretty good at explaining answer choices and he also gave us his email so that if we had any questions post-class or couldn't figure something out, we could email him. Overall, I'd say he was pretty good teacher. I wouldn't take a Kaplan course but that's just me. I also liked that testmasters didn't focus as much as powerscore on diagramming conditional reasoning since I find personally that it's very few questions that I want to diagram everything out, whereas powerscore seems to put a lot more emphasis on diagramming. Sorry I know my review isn't that helpful!

Jake Walker is the second best LSAT instructor to have ever taught in Ann Arbor.
