There's an horrible one that has been discussed on here before.  Make sure to avoid that.

No kidding Lindbergh. I believe I was the one who opened that can of worms by asking a simple question!!

Thanks for responding. I actually contacted them about having classes in London. At one point their website stated that they did have classes. I checked recently and it said they do not offer classes in the UK. When I spoke to them they stated that it depends on the size of the potential class and sometimes they do and sometimes they do not have classes. I know Kaplan has one there but I am really trying to avoid taking that!

Does anyone know a reputable company or an individual that offers LSAT tutoring in London, England?

Thanks.

Well, it's based on SuperMemory, so you'd need to learn it first, which is quite daunting.  75% of users give up.

I just glanced at the website, is it something I have to purchase and download?

Great. Thanks. Oh, I am taking the test in December, by the way. On a side note, is the LR finder you created going to be able to pull up tests 7 - 18? 

Take a look at this website. http://www.supermemo.com/   It's a lot of information, but I've used it for years.  Additionally, I've created a comprehensive schedule using the PowerScore method, if you're interested. 

Thanks for the website, I will definitely take a look at it. I am interested in the comprehensive schedule you have created PM me with it or post, however you prefer.

Breathe in.  Breathe out.



No kidding. I don't know why I get all worked up about timing. I usually finish with 2-3 minuted left anyway, but I am not digesting the questions!

Don't go into panic mode when under timed conditions and let the strategy / logical analysis that has been working fly out the window and end up in fly by the seat of your pants mode getting chased by the clock.

No speed reading / skimming.  Slow yourself down and relax to speed up and be more accurate.
Read the stimulus carefully and make sure you understand what is presented before rushing into the answer choices, etc.

That is exactly what I did...Should I practice answering individual questions in 1min 45sec? Would that help or hurt?

At this point you should be doing full sections / tests and focusing more on the whole thing than just individual questions piecemeal to get the timing balance in place for full test format. Plus after the fact review time of your mistakes / questions / concepts that went wrong.
