RE: Opinions on books, courses, websites, ripoffs etc.
« on: May 08, 2007, 02:09:03 PM »
Would appreciate everyone's opinion about how they studied, what they used and whether they would do it again.
Kaplan vs. Princeton Review vs. TestMasters vs. PowerScore vs. BluePrint vs. none.
I know this is a complex topic.
Also, opinions regarding the Timer, Covert Tactics, LSAT-secrets etc.  Are they rip-offs?
These are a few of the sites I have found that are of interest to me:

i smell troll.

ew.

go for the timer. actually, you should bring 2, and give one to the guy behind you in line at check-in. if he looks confused, tell him you've got it under control.

Dude you got to spend your time doing something a little more productive than posting all of those links.

i like your form
my pleasure is strychnine granola bars at break


i'd suggest bringing them in your oversized coach purse (there will plenty of room in the aisle next to your desk for it) but i think by the end of the test, it won't matter anyways....

Hey there, the best way to study no matter who's material is exposing yourself to the questions, to the test. I read and read and read, but it wasn't until I began taking test after test (and section after section) that I began to "understand" what the test wanted from me and my score really improved.

I found study books helpful. If I had one book to pick from it would be the Super test prep book by LSAC. The essential part is the full explanations for every question on three full tests. This helped me to understand what the test wanted from me.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses. I found the Logic games bible the most thorough in games, but then learned a few new techniques from the kaplan book that helped me understand the area better. Same for the other sections. Really, study and take at least one practice test every week.
