Dear bbently1,

Not knowing your learning style and strengths and weaknesses, itís hard to say whether itís realistic for you to improve your score from a 151 to a 160 in a month. What I could say is that the best way for anyone to improve their LSAT score is by studying materials and techniques that most improve their biggest weaknesses.

For instance, if time management is your biggest weakness, learn and practice techniques that will most improve your LSAT time management skills. If Logical Reasoning is your biggest weakness, learn and practice techniques that will most help you there. What you donít want to do is reinforce your current weaknesses or frustrate yourself by forcing techniques that donít work for you.

That is basically the gist of this LSAT study plan app and this How Much Can You Improve Your LSAT Score article. But we go into much more detail there.

The point of this very hedged opinion is that it is realistic to improve your LSAT score that much in that amount of time. But you will likely need to learn some new techniques and expend a lot of time and energy practicing. Good luck.

Hi Makaylalt,

Congratulations on your decision to take the LSAT.

You will probably find some people who swear by one course and others who despise it. Same with books. Perhaps a reason for this is that we all learn differently.

So, how do you learn? When are you most alert? How much time do you have to study? How much of it should you devote to classes? How disciplined are you?

For instance, some people canít focus on studying, even when they have time. For them, traditional in-person courses may help. However, if they donít practice what they learn, they are likely to despise the course later.

On the other end of the spectrum are people whom can wrestle with books and emerge with wisdom. For them, time spent in classrooms may be better spent practicing past LSATs.

To find your best LSAT prep course or method, consider what you need to draw your best LSAT score. For instance, you may find that for you meeting with a tutor once or twice a month may yield more points than sitting in a classroom three-times-a week. Or you may find that without the commitment to attend classes you will procrastinate your preparation.

The point is to consider your learning style and needs before considering which LSAT Prep Course is best.

Best of luck.

Interesting.

Upton Sinclair wrote "The Jungle" about factory life and wage slavery in early 20th Century U.S.

Right; everything is a jungle.

You just have to learn to walk around like you are king/queen.
