Kaplan class is not good for those trying to score in 170s+. The class I am in reviews the most basic lsat material and the teacher tells the students to go over harder problems at home. I got a lot more out of the powerscore bibles to be honest. Kaplan just provides explanations for why answers are right/wrong on the lsat (which you could eventually figure out on your own given enough time) but does not provide a system for arriving correctly at answers in a fast and methodical way like powerscore does.
Has anyone had a positive experience with Kaplan? Everything I have seen here is negative. Unfortunately, Kaplan is the only prep course available in my area. I've signed up for the Kaplan Extreme LSAT course. Any suggestions for how to get the most out of the Kaplan program? I will be supplementing my study with the Bibles.
Hey Craving Oyer,I've had some success. I'm taking the Extreme course. Took a diagnostic at 151 and just a 165 yesterday and feel like I'm still improving. But I agree with the above post that it's all about how much work you put in. And don't bite for some of their bogus techniques - at some point you have to trust yourself.
