« on: May 29, 2007, 01:12:06 AM »

the closest powerscore is an hour and  half from me.  they offer a weekend seminar the weekend before the sept. lsat- is this going to help me?

also, would kaplans 7 week program be better than this?

if you are in the low 150s you need a serious prep. course... don't you have Testmasters nearby? or can't you study by yourself?

buy PS bibles tests and read and study and hang around and save your career
shouldnt there be an n at the end of the Krapland?

this dude who teaches for Kaplan in Toronto bragged about co-writing the book. When asked what his real score was --> silence... i can't believe people still sign up for that course

test masters is in columbia too, id have to drive an hour and a half round trip 24 times to take their course.  that is 24 times 3 = 72 hours = 220 miles round trip times 24 =5,280 miles

25 miles to a gallon= 211 gallons

3 dollars a gallon = $633 dollars in gas alone.  

i believe i did that correct?

anyways, this is another reason why i have to get out of charleston ASAP   only kaplan offers their course here...

See if carpooling's an option?

I did a course with a 70 minute round trip. Also, a 150 with zero studying is much better than most. You can easily improve. Easily.

I hear TestWell is the *&^%, and judging by their website they waste no money on design and stuff, so they should be pretty cheap.
