TestMasters, w/o/e.http://www.xoxohth.com/thread.php?thread_id=33832&mc=19&forum_id=2I met a guy who is currently taking a Testmasters course who is not thrilled about his instructor. He said the instructor does not always give helpful explanations to problems and can sometimes have a hard time keeping the classís attention. Iím not saying this to put down Testmasters as a whole, Iím just trying point out that even Testmasters instructors can vary significantly in quality. I have yet to read the claim that TM and PS differ significantly in methods. That xoxo post about how instructors are selected seems like a good way to increase the likelihood you are going to get a good instructor but there are no guarantees (By the way, I defiantly think it is a good philosophy to spend good money to get good instructors).All this to say that if you have it narrowed down to two companies, itís in your best interest to contact the potential instructors and ask questions to see if you can get a sense of what it is going to be like to be a student in their class. Testmasters may have 80% great instructors 20% mediocre while Powerscore is 20%/80% but you just might be in a situation where youíre choosing between the mediocre TM instructor and the great PS instructor. Furthermore, personality compatibility can be a big factor. You might have an instructor who has the most LSAT insight a person can have, but if you canít stand to be in a room with that instructor for more than 5 minutes, youíre better off taking a class with an instructor who you really like but only has above average insight. Instructor research is very important!
