Which is the best Prep Course????
« on: March 31, 2008, 05:44:11 PM »
I am thinking about re-taking the LSAT.  I wanted to know what is best or most popular lsat prep class...? I took a private owned lsat prep course the first time. This time I am thinking about Kaplan or Princeton Review.....Any thoughts? I want to get around a 158 or so....Last year I was scoring 150-154 on all my prep tests..

If you're just planning on lighting $1200 on fire, use that money to do Kaplan instead.

Otherwise, find a different course.

I know little about Princeton Review. Kaplan will offer you more structure and guidance, whereas TestMasters will give you a bit more freedom as to your approach. I would generally recommend TestMasters to higher scoring students and Kaplan to lower scoring ones. Powersocre, from what I know, is rather similar to TestMasters in terms of material and approach.

If you are in CA, NY, MA or TX, Blueprint is by far the best.

Beta is superior to VHS as well.

I'm surprised the mobs haven't jumped on you yet. 
Compare instructors, not brand names.  Find a class and ask to interview the teacher.  If he/she can't impress you in 15 minutes, move on.

What the hell is that supposed to mean? Blueprint is the best course on the market, it just isn't available everywhere.

Powerscore's pretty decent. However, I don't know if anyone can really tell you what the "best" prep course is. Most people only take one, so they really don't have any knowledge of how it compares to the others except by what those prep courses tell them. The prep course will always say that theirs is the "best." I think as long as you take one, they're about the same. Just make sure its an established prep course. No fly by night crap.

I'm sorry... but isn't the previous latest version of this topic not even 10 threads down?  ???

Oh moderator...can ya clean up a bit? And if we can't count on that...it'd be nice to give us the search feature in a more visible place to encourage (i.e. IMPOSE) the practice. :P 

Although gradcafe doesn't really have an active law forum, I really like the placements of their search feature and the way the results are displayed. It'd be really nice to add that over here.
