Studying for the LSAT / Re: Was Your LSAT Prep Course Helpful?
« on: May 02, 2013, 08:21:51 AM »
As an independent LSAT tutor, I've had a similar experience in hearing from my students that they did not find a prep course helpful. However, I agree that this may be due to a biased sample.

I suspect that courses can be helpful for those starting with lower LSAT scores (in the 140s) because most courses are focused on simply getting students past the 150 mark. (Those starting with higher scores and/or better aptitude may be bored in class, and those starting below the 140s may feel confused and rushed at the pace of the class.)

The question becomes whether courses are worth the time and money, as compared to self-studying with low-cost/free resources.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is LSAT prep course worth it?

Look what it comes down to is the type of person that you are when it comes to studying. If you need someone on top of you, then maybe the course is worth it, but if you're an independent person who can sit down and get work done, then the courses are a complete waste of money in my opinion. There are so many alternatives to dishing out over $1000 for a course. Self studying is one option which will cost you for the books and such. Another option that i am more fond of is using your ipad or iphone to study.

Since the LSAT is a paper and pencil exam, it's extremely important to complete full-length (5-section) timed exams using physical copies (or at least, print-outs) of the exams, rather than completing them online.

An online video course can be a good alternative to more expensive in-person prep courses, but just be sure to complete the exams on paper.

LSAC is closing several testing centers in New England (and some in Canada) due to the impending blizzard:

It has already posted some test center cancellations and will be posting even more on this page:

I have posted some background information on my blog about LSAT test center closings:

Wish everyone all the best, and that most of you get to be finished with the LSAT tomorrow!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Best LSAT prep course

There's no consensus, but there's a compilation thread detailing people's experiences with different courses.

However, many folks are big on self-study, rather than taking a course. PM me if you'd like some details on how you can effectively self-study using a variety of free and low-cost resources.
