I’m not an LSAT tutor, but sometimes my clients give me great tips to pass on. Here are a sampling:
I am feeling much better about my LSAT progress ever since I finished the PowerScore books and utilized the materials at: www.testsherpa.com .
Back when I was in college my favorite calculus professor used to say, “If you don’t understand a particular concept in your text book, don’t give up . . . just get a different text book.” He was right. Often times a different text author would explain something in a way that even a knucklehead like me could understand. Eventually I would find that author.
The games were still killing me so with my teacher’s words in mind I went online looking for a different explanation, and I found TestSherpa. The owner of TestSherpa gave me links to his four-hour long “Logic Games Workshop” and I’ll be doing that tonight at home, after I leave work. I have a feeling that’s going to solidify things a lot for me and then I’ll resume taking practice tests tomorrow. The material’s good and helpful. Why does he charge so little? I’m thinking maybe he’s a disgruntled ex-LSAC employee or something.
Anyway, I think www.testsherpa.com is a wonderful little find. I’ll let you know how much I improve. I have a feeling I’ll have some good news about TestSherpa to share with others.
By the way, the Powerscore Logical Reasoning Bible is also good. I liked the Logic Games one so much I decided to order another to try to further improve my Logical Reasoning scores, and I’m glad I did. Both books include good information and techniques for approaching formal logic and conditional reasoning, and they interact well with each other. I was in the US for the last few weeks and skimmed through a few of the general-purpose LSAT prep books (Princeton Review, Barrons etc) in a bookstore, and I was amazed at how superficial and generic they were in their advice. I’ve always been quite suspicious of the whole standardized-test-prep racket, so I feel strange writing these gushy testimonials, but Powerscore really does offer exceptionally effective methods.
