I've read these questions over and over again and I still don't get how the answers make sense.

Also, I vaguely remember this being in a recent there some website where you can type in your answers and it will tell you what types of questions are your weaknesses?

haha I guess I meant being in a classroom for eight hours in one day because I think I'm averaging about 8 hours/day studying at home as well. Classrooms bore me...I wonder how I got through high school.

Thanks for everyone's input!

I'm going to continue self-studying and see how things go and maybe take a weekend or online course if I decide I need it.

I asked because I don't really have time to do any new tests between now and tomorrow morning when I have to decide whether to send the TM course materials back but I already took a couple SuperPrep tests and did pretty well (>170) so I'll just hope that it's close enough to the real thing and I don't need a prep course.

They said they would give me a refund if I sent the materials back, thankfully. I hope i'm doing the right thing by deciding not to take it because it means I'm committing to self-study. If I got very good scores on the LSAT tests in the SuperPrep book, can I take them as being indicative of the LSAT now?

That really does suck.  I just got done taking the TM course in Norman for the June 2008 LSAT.  We had class Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays (Practice Tests) and then Sundays (Practice test reviews).  I'm sorry to hear about your bad luck.  Honestly though, just be glad that you didn't get the instructor that I had.  This kid wasn't even done with his bachelor's yet at OU, granted he scored a 170 on the lsat which put him in the required percentile to instruct the course.  Nevertheless, he still wasn't great at explaining and teaching the course.  Good Luck.

Yeah I sort of figured that I couldn't expect much from the Norman instructors.

I am actually taking the last month of the class in Ann Arbor so I guess that's good. But it'd be too complicated/expensive to go there any earlier. I'm going to try to call TM and see if they can do anything but I'm not too hopeful.

I go to the University of Michigan and I'm spending the summer in Norman, OK where my parents live. I signed up for a TM course for the October LSAT and the classes were scheduled for M/W evenings 6-10. Now today, two days before the class should start, I get a phone call from TM saying that they have only now found an instructor for the class and had to reschedule it because he was only free on Saturdays. So now both weekly classes are on Saturday, one from 9 am - 1 pm and one from 2pm - 6pm. For one thing, how are you supposed to concentrate and learn something like the LSAT for eight hours in one day? But the more important thing is I already planned and bought plane tickets to be out of town for a few Saturdays which means I'll be missing 6 classes out of the 15. And I would never have shelled out the $1500 if I knew it would be like this. But I doubt I can get my money back because it does say on TM's website that the class times are liable to change. I'm just so mad because the LSAT isn't just some random thing I can blow off...ARGH! There are no Powerscore courses available nearby or else I would have chosen them...

Anyone have any experiences with it? How does it compare to the real thing?
