Tutoring: Powerscore or Kaplan

Postby pennymore » Mon Sep 06, 2010 12:23 am

Hi friends,

Anyone have any good/bad experience with Testprep company tutoring? I'm considering either Powerscore's 5 hr package deal or Kaplan's 15 hrs deal. Kaplan is more cost effective BUT I know their prep course is horrible, no...useless.

I've already by studying one my own for months so I have a pretty good logic/LSAT foundation, just looking forsome outside help to hone in on weaknesses. Any thoughts/ideas/feedback would be really helpful! Thanks!

Do NOT do Kaplan. Do either PS or TestMasters tutoring.

The quality of tutoring depends on the tutor, not who's logo is on the door.

It also depends on the methodology they teach you, and Kaplan's is absolute shit.

Kaplan's methods are garbage. They teach you how to spot some of the wrong answers, without showing you how to actually know the correct answer.

Eff the tutor, study the bibles and take PT's like its your second job.

for Kaplan, most wrong LR answers are simply out of scope, whatever that means
