Spend the money and pay the 1k or whatever it takes to take the kaplan course.  I regret not doing that everyday

I definitely second bad chicken's sentiment. I, too, regret not taking an LSAT review course. I had no idea that LSAT score was weighted so heavily in law school admissions.

I took Kaplan and was happy with it.  The reason why I decided to take Kaplan was because the Princeton Review didn't use actual test questions as examples.  I bought a Princeton Review book later to supplement what I learned in Kaplan but the examples they used just didn't feel like they'd be real LSAT questions.  I could be biased but it seemed like the PR questions just were testing things that wouldn't be on the exam.

As for other test prep places I really haven't heard that much but if you're choosing between PR and Kaplan I'd suggest Kaplan.

Hope this helps!

I took the test in Summer last year after taking a review course with Kaplan. I have personally not taken a testmasters review course, however, based on my research, Testmasters is the best. They offer an exhaustive prep course covering all aspects of the test.
No doubt, Kaplan is good also, and I was satisfied with it. However, if I had enough time and if it were to fit my schedule I would have definately gone for Testmasters.
Consider this, they specialize in it and thats the only thing they do. And believe me, they are good at it.
Another advantage of testmasters will be that they will provide you will all the material out there in regards to the previous LSAT's. So you would not have to pay a penny for buying more tests or other materials.
I spent around 100 dollars for buying previous tests for practice from the LSAC website while taking the course at Kaplan. So thats a potential cost factor also.
Also keep in mind that, all this info is true until the summer of last year. And it might have changed since then.
Concludingly, Testmasters is the best choice.


Hope this helps!

Regards,
Jd

I went with Kaplan in May 2002. The instructor I had was really knowledgeable. About 3-4 weeks before the exam, I also went to the Kaplan center to listen to their lecture videos again and did practice questions. Those really helped! Good luck!

Testmasters180.com will be better than Kaplan.

All you need are the Powerscore Bibles, 20 or 30 old tests, and motivation.

I took the Kaplan course before I realized that I was not going any place in a hurry. The instructor was not even a law school student and was totally awful. Then, desperate, I registered in the MLIC LSAT prep class in manhattan and received real training. Their training actually connects how logical reasoning is tested in all three sections of the LSAT. The MLIC strategy for the games section was the best I have seen, better than the Powerscore bible. (It is an insult to the real bible). My score improved from 158 to 174 after I took the MLIC Lsat prep.

I took the Powerscore class.  Next weekend, I'll see how it goes, but on the practice tests I went from about 160 to regularly scoring in the low 170s.  Speed on the logic games section is the only problem I have now.

Just to update, I got a 167. :(

Got past my slowness on the logic games, but I got a lot of questions where it came down to one of two choices and I kept choosing wrong.

Nevertheless, I think the Powerscore class helped me a lot.
