Another LSAT study plan Q...

Another LSAT study plan Q...
« on: May 11, 2006, 08:18:24 PM »
I will be away for the summer, coming back in the middle of August. I am planning on studying on my own over the summer with practice test and powerscore books. For a couple of reasons, one being money, the other being I have an EC I can't miss on Mondays and Thursdays, I am not planning on taking a course. Am I going to regret this? I know this is a ridiculous question...but I had to ask.

No, studying on your own is perfectly fine. Starting early is good, you can get a feel for what areas need the most work. Practice tests are the most important study tool, and reading the explanations for the questions on those practice tests.

The biggest thing about studying on your own vs. with a class is that you have to be disciplined enough to actually study w/o any incentive of knowing what's going on in class, etc.

I teach a Kaplan course, but studied for my own test without a class, so have some perspective on both - if you want to talk more specifically about your study program send me a message sometime.

Best of luck.

studying on your own is much better.  When  u do group studying u got people asking dumb questions that confuse you. And whatever u do , do not take made up LSAT test questions.  They do more harm then good.
