Meta Discussion / Re: The decline of LSD activity.
« on: September 10, 2009, 04:53:57 PM »
I've followed TLS and LSD. Both have been great source of information. I think as forums go, LSD has a little bit more information than TLS and maybe even a set of "experts." So I feel like there is consistent moderation and replies. However, I recently registered as a user to ask a question that wasn't being asked and very unique to me. After posting a new discussion, I realized I should have posted under an already existing TestPrep discussion. So I posted it there too. So a few hours later I get banned. Some of the 'senior citizens' thought i was employee of a test prep company. Just cause I asked "does anybody know anything about this company". Anyways, after the 48 hr ban I felt like LSD 'senior citizens' were applying their rules unfairly. They would let people write irrelevant put downs and just haggling but they'd ban me just cause they thought i worked for a company. I don't work for a company. I didn't want to squander my money on any testprep company, so I asked. Anyways. I think LSD and TLS both are important but TLS seems to be more open. Like the previous poster, they also have higher traffic. Both work for me. I think LSD can over come TLS in importance if moderations were done fairly and continuous back and forth between people could be better moderated. I mean, some discussions, I'm going down page after page before finding useful stuff. That's just my two cents. thanks for a great discussion board.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT prep course

Hi Mitchell, Thanks for replying.

They only focus on LSATs. They work by email and send you personally tailored study material. They say they only use LSAC approved questions, so basically only PrepTest. They say they will go through 40 preptest for 170hrs with you. All the instructors have scored about 177. The part that makes sense to me is that they use all LSAC approved questions, however, saying all their instructors score above 177 seems so arbitrary. I mean. why not 172 like TM? I am just suspicious. Their website is.. snazzy. haha. what do you think?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT prep course

Hi all.
I am taking a prep course for the 3rd time. I am done with them and they aren't necessarily helpful for me at this point. They forced me to study in between my work schedule but I always ended up not doing the hmwrk at the end knowning I won't be able to be ready by what ever LSAT I was studying for. I am now at my last bit of hope. I am seeking Tutoring or this specialized course called [redacted] LSAT. Does any body have suggestions or know anything about this company? http://[redacted].com. or should I go back to my prep course (TM) to get tutoring there? Money is tight as always but I'm willing to spend the money to get a great score. I am on the cusp of 159-162s. I wanna break the 165.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Derek
