I just got done looking into those courses. the closest one to me is about 65 miles away from my house. I looked at kaplan and testmaster. they are about the same in price (around 1200 dollars). I really think that this would help me get prepared. Is this they way to go about it?

If you haven't studied at all yet, you may very well do fine studying on your own.  I'd say that there is no need to rush into a class yet until you've stuied and taken at least a few preptests on your own.

I got a 153 on my first test (taken under testing time/conditions) after reading two chapters of the Logic Reasoning Bible and nothing else. Within four weeks of having done nothing more than reading more of that book, I took a few more and all were in the 159-161 range. Then I got the Logic Games Bible and my last three practice scores were 164-168-168. This was with no class and only buying two books (the LG Bible and a book of official LSAT prep tests... I had the LR Bible on PDF). So you could very easily score significantly better without spending the cash on a course. I would, without question, get the two Powerscore Bibles.

Of course, then I take the December LSAT, get the same amount of questions right (with the same number of total questions) as I did on both of my 168s, but the curve from hell rears its ugly head and it's only good for a 163. But if I would've had just another two weeks to study on my own (I didn't finish the last three chapters of the LR Bible) I probably would've done better. I just decided too late to take it and wanted to make sure I'd get in this admission cycle.
