Hey Dutch - Skip the Emory class. I took it earlier this year before the June test and was not impressed. The instructor has some really annoying mannerisms and his notebook is full of typos. I won't say that I wasted the $400, but I could have invested it in a much better way. If I take another class, it will definitely be the full-length PowerScore course (http://shopping.powerscore.com/product_detail.cfm?pid=908). I didn't work through the PowerScore bibles before the June exam and I have learned so much from them (contrary to what the LSAC guy said during the Atlanta forum, there are "trick" questions on the test and PowerScore points them out). If anything, the bibles are worth investing in and David Killoran (founder of PowerScore and author of the bibles) has been great about answering my email questions.
Hi Dutch - The Emory instructor's defensiveness is a huge red flag (IMHO). While his course may have helped me somewhat (I got a 154 the first time I took the test - in June), I feel that my money would have been better spent on a PowerScore course. And no, I don't know anything about the Gwinnett course. CM
Dutch: I'm taking the LSAT again because I didn't get a score good enough for Georgia State (if I can get in, I'll go part-time at night) or other schools in areas where my husband and I may end up. We will move West at some point and if it is while I'm still in law school, I don't want there to be any concerns about my LSAT score.The toughest parts of the exam for me were the logical and analytical (logic games) reasoning sections. I had not worked through the PowerScore bibles beforehand and I didn't fully comprehend how to work the problems effectively. Once you take the test I think you'll understand. Time is critical because those 35 minutes per section go by very quickly. PowerScore emphasizes time management, which is key to doing well on the LSAT.CM
