Studying for the LSAT / Was Your LSAT Prep Course Helpful?
« on: April 23, 2013, 07:04:21 PM »
Just about every one of the students I've tutored that has taken an LSAT prep course has told me that the course was largely a waste of money.  However, my sample is biased because people that weren't satisfied with their prep course are more likely to seek extra tutoring.  For those of you that have taken an LSAT prep course, what are your thoughts?  Which course was it?  Was it an efficient use of your time?  Did you improve a lot?  If you could go back in time, would you still choose to do the course?

Your time is much better spent reading the PowerScore books and doing past LSAT questions.  If you do some snooping around the web, you can find the PowerScore books and all past LSATs and explanations for past LSATs available to download (illegally) for free.  Once you've read the PowerScore books, the best way to learn is to do past LSAT questions in small chunks, say 5 or 6 at a time, and check the answers immediately afterwards.  If you get any answers wrong or aren't 100% certain why the correct answer is correct, go back and try figure it out.  If you can't figure it out or you want to confirm that you've figured it out correctly, check the explanations.  If you're still having problems after reading an explanation, then get a tutor to help you with your specific area of need.  It's much more efficient than paying for a course to learn stuff you already to know or could just as easily learn by yourself.  Feel free to contact me if you're looking for an affordable tutor.
