LSAT: Mixing Study Material
« on: April 17, 2011, 02:05:44 AM »
Hi,

Right now I am living in a small town that doesn't offer any LSAT courses that I need. I plan on moving closer to a city that offers TestMasters in June, but until then I WANT/NEED to start studying. So my question...

Would it hurt my score/ be confusing if I started studying using the Princeton LSAT Review and then switched to the TestMasters? Or am I just worrying over nothing?

I'd REALLY APPRECIATE any advice. Specifically am I being silly.

My GPA sucks, so I don't want to take any chances with doing my best on the lsat.

I feel in some instances the methods are different, for example Logic Games in Powerscore is significantly different than Kaplan. However, in general they both give good explanations. I would suggest getting use to an overall method and using other materials as a supplement if you must.

I am using the Powerscore Bibles, but I also use Kaplan for some of their test explanations. I feel that I am the most compatible with Powerscore's method.

But really it is up to you.

Don't mix methods and don't pregame your LSAT course.  Enjoy the spring and hit it hard when you take your class.

edit:  That poll makes no sense.

The experience here is with EarlCat.  If you are paying money for someone to get you ready for the LSAT, don't sabotage yourself by learning bad habits.  They will have a study program that will get you where you need/want to be if you put in the effort.

Mix it up. I do, when I'm studying, and I seem to be progressing fine.
