Critically important question about Testmasters
« on: January 05, 2009, 04:08:09 PM »
After much deliberation, I have decided to take a Testmasters course in preparation for the June LSAT.  I am pretty certain about enrolling in the "Early Spring" option, but I am very conflicted as to whether I should enroll in the Mon/Wed. or Sun./Thur. class sections.  Anyone have an opinion on pros/cons between the two?

Some information about me that might be relevant:
- Fulltime job as a paralegal (hours should be pretty steady, M-F, 9-5 for the duration of my preparation).
- Not a heavy drinker/partier
- Pretty dedicated when it comes to getting work done in a timely manner

Pros and cons as I see them:

Mon/Wed.

Pros:
-  The start date is two weeks earlier
-  Weekend is free for in-depth study and normal weekend socializing without worrying about a class on Sunday night

Cons:
-  Only one day to finish assigned work in between the Monday and Wednesday class


Thur./Sun.

Pros:
-  Lots of time in between classes to get assigned work done

Cons:
-  Later start date
-  The Thur. night class is followed up with Friday night - lots of pressure to go out instead of work with the material you learned the previous night


I would appreciate other popinions on the matter.  Please let me know if you know of any other pros/cons that I should take into consideration.

I'm not really sure how well anonymous people on an internet message board can help you plan your life's schedule. :p

Now ask specifically about LSAT prep and we will have your back.

I don't know what you're talking about. I just did it. His next few weeks are going to be quite busy with the Thailand move.
Best of luck to everyone!

Take the earlier class.  You won't have a problem if you do some of the Monday homework along with the Wednesday homework over the long weekend before your next Monday's class.  Very few classes build on the last class in such a way that you're in trouble if you haven't done all the work before moving on.

This is definitely not a critically important question about Testmasters.
