Studying for the LSAT / Re: What tests am I missing that I need?
« on: December 20, 2007, 10:53:26 AM »
Thanks for the replies.  If anyone has any better sources for these tests than LSAC I'd be interested in them. 

I feel like I have enough tests to practice games but effectively, once I get the latest tests, but if anyone think there is anything pre 95 that I should get or if I'm missing something in the middle there please let me know.

I didnt see a list of admins on lsac.org... thats why I asked.

Haha, I was about to recommend you aututor, but then I remembered that you were the one who recommended me my tutor in the first place! She definitely helped me out; two days until I find out just how much.

Glad she worked out for you.  I liked her too but I want to see what else is out there.  Let me know how you do.

I didn't try the individual tutoring, so sorry if my reply is useless to you, but I was having the same problem. I did the bible, lots of practice, etc. but it didnt help too much. I was still taking 12 or so minutes per game.

I compiled a "book" of every game section in the past 10-12 years, and practiced them three times. By the end of it, I could do ANY game within 5 minutes. It was a lot of work, but its the main thing that worked for me. I aced the games section when I eventually took the LSAT for the second time.

Just thought I give my two cents before you go out and spend the big bucks on a tutor.

Greenman that is great advice.  That was my retake strategy and I'm very glad to hear it worked so well for you.

That was worth much more than 2 cents.

PS tutors basically teach what is in the bibles.  You could save yourself some money, buy the bible, and study the hell out of it.  Maybe the ultimate setup guide would help you too.

As far as tutoring goes, Why not get 2x + as many hours for your money? It is less than half the price if you cut out the middle man.  PS tutors do private tutoring too if you can track them down.  Try craigs list or ask for recomendations based on your geographic area on LSD.  Any tutor will focus on your weak points.  Learn the bible inside and out first and get the most for your money.

Good luck

What geographic area is this tutor in?  I'd like to interview them and see what their experience is as well as what guarantees they would give me after we discuss my past LSAT experience and official score. 

Also I'm looking to interview any and all tutors in the NYC/n. NJ area for help on specific aspects of the lsat getting ready for february retake.  Please PM me your recomendation and/or your pitch/price.

Thanks

screw prep courses.  Find yourself a great tutor, take a diagnostic and focus on your weaknesses with the tutor.

People that do well after a class are people that would have done well had they praticed on their own and found some help from someone familiar with the techniques. 

I have lots of anti prep course posts if you need more reasons not to take one.  The money is best spent on tutoring. 

Sure parts of the class helped me out but I wasted many hours in a PS class.

Good luck.
