Thanks! I pre-ordered one. The LGB has been great, so I hope this is of the same quality.

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan

Has anyone had a positive experience with Kaplan? Everything I have seen here is negative. Unfortunately, Kaplan is the only prep course available in my area. I've signed up for the Kaplan Extreme LSAT course. Any suggestions for how to get the most out of the Kaplan program? I will be supplementing my study with the Bibles.

Studying for the LSAT / Speed

Anyone have specific suggestions for how to improve speed on each section? Accuracy isn't a major issue, but efficiency is. Any tips besiders just doing each question type over and over and over again? Or is that the best bet?

Studying for the LSAT / Logic Games Bible

Looking for suggestions as to how to best use the Logic Games Bible. It's a little overwhelming, as it just seems to be approach after approach after approach to each question type, all running together. I'm not sure how I will ever remember all the guidance about when to use block sequencing vs. non-block sequencing, and does it matter if I make a vertical diagram or a horizontal diagram? Also, is the Bible best paired with the Ultimate Set-Up guide so I can practice each question type as I go?

Thanks for any advice.

Planning to use the Kaplan Extreme program to study for the December LSAT. I'll be supplementing that with the Powerscore Bibles and taking the Preptests that Kaplan does not use for full length in class testing. Anyone used Kaplan recently? I've heard they have revamped the course. In particular, anyone used their Kaplan Extreme program? I've listed the highlights of the course here, if anyone cares to offer a critique.


Kaplan Extreme includes:

LSAT Extreme is 109 prep hours (85 instructional hours + 24 exam hours) spread across 28 sessions. It includes:

10 classrooms sessions
6 recent, full-length LSAT practice tests, proctored under realistic conditions
9 topic-based workshops
3 attack sessions focused on section management
In addition to the 109 hours, LSAT Extreme includes 4 hours of one-on-one tutoring.
