How to approach studying for the LSAT

How to approach studying for the LSAT
« on: December 01, 2006, 04:21:09 PM »
Hi everyone...I took a practice test at a Kaplan center and my score was a 142 :(
I know that is a bad score, I haven't really started studying at all for it, I am planning on taking the LSAT in June and I was thinking of taking either a Princeton Review or Testmasters course which would start in either March or April. I am hoping to get at least a 160.

So, is a 160 impossible? Also would a testmasters or princeton review course be better?
I was also looking into a private tutor... should I see a tutor before I take a course or no?

Lastly I think i'm having trouble attacking the LSAT, something is not clicking in my mind with the questions, I just don't know how to approach the test.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

between TM and PR, TESTMASTERS comes before princeton review, though i hear that PR's hyperlearning course is better than their standard course.

get started now to get the best overall improvement before june 07, though schedule breaks so you don;t burn out. testmasters has an intense worekload, so i suggest starting a march rather than an april course.

if you can afford a tutor, and i recomend getting one from a reputable prep cpurse company like testmasters or powerscore, that might be a good way to diagnose and correct your problems.
