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

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!
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.
bad impersonation of stupid person gets you a 155
