With the release of February LSAT scores last Wednesday, we’ve reached what is traditionally the end of last year’s testing and application cycle, and the start of most people’s prep for admission in the fall of 2019. That isn’t to suggest that schools won’t take a summer test for a start later this year—a lot of great schools accept the June (and likely July) results for same-year admission—or that students looking to begin in 2020 or later shouldn’t start preparing now! But for the majority of future applicants the coming months mark the start of their LSAT journeys.
As such, two of the most common questions I hear this time of year are, “How do I begin to prepare?” and “How do I pick the prep option that’s best for me?”
In this post I’ll do my best to answer both of those questions.
First, since I’m obviously pretty biased when it comes to courses and prep in general—although I’m not wrong; I work for PowerScore and write these articles because I know what I’m talking about: PowerScore is truly the industry leader when it comes to quality instruction and student results—I’ll avoid a blatant PowerScore pitch and instead take a different tack, providing broader, brand-free advice to help anyone make the most informed and beneficial decision possible.
Here are the three most crucial steps to take right away:
- Watch the majority of Lesson One from our In Person and Live Online Courses here;
- Read a ton of great articles and see various videos on our Free Help Area and this blog;
- Talk directly to Senior Instructors and Content Developers like me and Dave Killoran (PowerScore’s founder and author of the LSAT Bibles) on our twitter accounts—https://twitter.com/jonmdenning and https://twitter.com/DaveKilloran—LSAT Forum (see the next bullet), and in the comments section of these blog posts;
- Review a ton of discussion threads and even ask questions of your own on our LSAT Forum;
- Preview chapters of the LSAT Bibles (the best-selling LSAT books on the market).
None of that is to suggest that it’s an easy or obvious decision, but hopefully keeping these things in mind early on will make the right path a little clearer.
