Best LSAT prep course
« on: February 01, 2013, 03:46:08 PM »
Hey everybody... I've seen a lot of threads about test prep materials and some courses but I wanted to get peoples experiences with the different course on the market. I'm hesitant to pay $1500 for a course so any comments regarding the pros and cons of different courses are greatly appreciated.

Also, does anybody have experience with iphone/ipad apps for studying? I've heard of lsatmax. Anybody used it before?

There's no consensus, but there's a compilation thread detailing people's experiences with different courses.

However, many folks are big on self-study, rather than taking a course. PM me if you'd like some details on how you can effectively self-study using a variety of free and low-cost resources.

I took the online course with Test Masters which I really loved. It helped me learn a lot more than Princeton Review's course. I took a physical class though with PR and the teacher was young - he was sort of stunned by a number of females in the class and that really took away from my learning.

The beauty of the online course was they had an awesome tracking system so that you could keep track of your progress, tests, and homework. There were videos to explain answers to questions on tests and homework. You get a few hours of tutor time over the phone. There are more supplementary materials available to you than you'll be able to use.

Check out this article, it might help you out a little more on your path: http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-get-into-law-school-steps

Thanks Roxanne. I checked that out and its a bit pricey compared to the LSATMax app and I was checking the content in the app and it's the same with the video lectures, homework, etc

Best LSAT Prep Courses

I didn't take an LSAT prep course so my best lsat prep course list is not based on personal experience, but from what I've read in my years on these forums the general consensus seemed to be that the top lsat prep courses are:

Powerscore - PowerScore.com
Testmasters (testmasters.net by Robin Singh, NOT testmasters.com)
Blueprint - Blueprintprep.com

As far as the best online lsat prep courses, there seem to be new ones popping up every year. For now, I'd probably stick with the online version of one of the aforementioned companies.

http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/virtual/content_index.cfm
http://www.testmasters.net/LsatOnline
http://blueprintprep.com/online

The newer LSAT prep courses might be cheaper, but at least you know that these companies have proven their lsat prep methods over years of in-class live lsat prep courses that they have taught.
