I think that negative reviews of Kaplan are correlated with the fact that the students who pick Kaplan are different from those who pick TM or PS. Kaplan is in your face everywhere, but TM and PS is not, so those who pick TM or PS generally gotta research the LSAT and different courses. So, a person who picks TM r PS has a different minds set and the way they look at the test, i.e. more serious. And when you have a better student body teaching is much easier, and since most mediocre students pick KAplan, when they do badly, they do start bitching about how bad the course was instead of thinking what they have or have not done themselves to improve.
Also, I have not seen any Kaplan's or TPR's prep material, but is it really so different from TM and PS? LSAT is a standardized test, s how difficult can the info presented about the test be?It's like comparing different Math books, they all teach the same stuff, just word it differently.
I do not think so. I think the people who take PS or TM are victims of group think like i was. If you just look at their syllubus you will see you do not get the bang for your buck.
Lessons 8-12 are a joke. They involve the writing sample, pattern games, mapping games and stuff you will most likely never see on the LSAT again.
If someone did the research they would see that you are paying for powerscore to say the bibles out loud to you in lessons 1-7. THATS IT.
