Helping a classroom of students with a wide-ranging array of skill levels to achieve a universal 15-20 point score increase is extremely difficult and not feasible in the typical 3 month LSAT prep course timeframe. Do not believe the test prep companies. If they truly cared about your achieving your utmost potential, the course would take place over at least 6 months. Since that would be very costly to execute, LSAT prep companies do not even attempt to help students achieve their best.
If you have a 135, you can jump 25 points. If you have a 162, you can get a 175. How is this possible? Because personalized tutoring can bolster your weaknesses and capitalize on your strengths. Even though I have a set curriculum that will be covered by every LSAT student whom I tutor, the way the curriculum is taught and executed is not uniform across my students. For example, if my student is very strong in logic games, then covering logic games will be very fast. If my student is struggling with making inferences, then extra help will be given until the student truly understands.
Unless you'll be satisfied with a 5-7 point score increase, taking an LSAT prep course doesn't make much sense. If you're in the 130s and 140s and want to make a 20+ point jump, you won't get that with an LSAT prep course. If you're in the 160s and want to score in the mid-170s, then an LSAT prep course is a waste of time and personalized tutoring will get you there. This is why you should take a diagnostic test and see how you score before making any decision regarding your LSAT preparation. Don't seek my help only after wasting time and money on an LSAT prep course and be like so many of my other students. Learn from their mistakes.
