Class Information

The bulk of each test prep class is devoted to the review of one or more question types. Each class begins with a brief lecture, the length of which varies with the question type being examined. The instructor will then do a few problems as examples of how they should be approached. Problems will then be assigned for completion during the class. After the students have had an opportunity to complete the assignment, the questions will be discussed.

Because students tend to find Analytical Reasoning the most difficult question type, two classes are devoted to this question type. The Logical Reasoning lecture includes a discussion of the various logical fallacies. The Reading Comprehension lecture discusses how to approach such questions and discusses the psychological aspects of the test. During the final class, students will take an entire past LSAT exam. In addition, all in-class questions are taken from previous LSAT exams. Student questions are encouraged and respected.

The instructor will then do a few problems as examples of how they should be approached. Problems will then be assigned for completion during class.
