Studying for the LSAT / Re: Best Reading Comp Book

Nova is garbage. They cover passages from the 1991 test. LSAT superprep is pretty good.

Do not read Liz pendens and her crazy garbage. She has been on this board for  years and still has not taken the test.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Powerscore just Worthless
« on: February 23, 2007, 12:51:42 AM »
I took the course for the Feb test. ( repeat) The course was terrible. The first time i thought i had a bad teacher. This time my teacher was very good. The course still sucked.


1. The course is not designed well. The first lesson is just nonsense. Stuff you can read on your own. Like looking for premise and conlusion indicators. Lessons 2-7 are the only ones that are of any value. After that they start having whole lessons in pattern and cicular games. Games that have not shown on the LSAT since the 90s.  There is nothing wrong with going over them. But for the last half of the class. We should have been drilling the games that would be most likely be on the LSAT.  No one showed up from lesson 6-12 because they knew it was worthless going plus the test was coming up.

2. The coursebooks are stupid. They give you a lot of problems to do. What is the advantage of doing a lot of problems instead of taking LSATS? And the worst thing is the suppliment LSATs they give you lap over with the coursebooks. (





Powerscore is just a waste of 1200 dollars.  I took it two times and  each time only one of the students was ready to take the test that the course was preparing us for.

I guess the only way to prepare is taking a bunch of LSATs and review them.


hey why do you think i audited one lesson? as i mentioned, a girl could not solve the game for like 25 minutes until someone helped her. I agree, TM is much better!


Thats weird. They have the set ups in their teachers manual. The course design just sucks. It would make more sense for the class to take test at home. And we review  that test in depth for the whole 4 hours.  That way you will be prepared for the current test and the class is helping you  study. Not just a side show.


A better set up would be take a test before each class. And  review it. T hat way u can get your 15 test in and understand why you got the answers wrong.


They only do that for 3 test.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Take every LSAT VS POWERSCORE course books?

OP, I went over all the published preptests. IMO, they are not very helpful by themselves. If you take a preptest then go over every single question you are not sure about and MAKE SURE YOU get the correct reasoning down, then it might be helpful. However, for you to get the correct reasoning down, you need to know the fundamentals of logic. My advice would be for you to briefly go through the first few chapters from an intro to logic book and then thoroughly go through the entire powerscore books.

After you go thru those books, you can apply that new knowledge on the preptests and work on your timing. Don't worry about remembering the questions. Just focus on getting a high raw score. If you see a question you remember, then deduct 1-2minutes from your section time and move to the next question.
 
It took me around 20 preptests to reach my peak. It took me months to get close to perfect. I think if I had the PS books, I would have hit my peak much sooner.


Thanks a lot.

Studying for the LSAT / Take every LSAT VS POWERSCORE course books?
« on: February 17, 2007, 11:36:59 PM »
I have every 52 LSATS .  I also took a powerscore course and did not do much of the work in the books. 


What do you guys suggest to do. Take every LSAT and review? Or do the course books and mix in a few LSATS.


I am worried about doing the powerscore books because i think i will remember everything when i am doing test.

So would you ignore the powerscore books and take test. Or do the coursebooks.


Thanks.
