Testmasters OR princeton review course?

Postby calidancer2 » Tue Dec 07, 2010 11:00 am

I have the option of taking either a Testmasters course (but having to transfer the last ~month of classes to back home) or a Princeton Review course (no transferring needed, ends at beginning of May) to prep for the June LSAT. It's in Nashville, FWIW if anyone knows the instructors (I don't, can't find any info on either).


Which would you pick, assuming $ is not an issue?

If $$$ is not an issue and you're choosing just between Princeton Review and TestMasters...then, personally, I would go with TestMasters.

But if I were you, I would still supplement your study plan/method so that it works best for you (in addition to tutoring). There are GREAT tips/resources/schedules in TLS' LSAT Prep forum.

Depends upon the particular instructors teaching each course.

Call the companies and ask for the instructors. Ask the Princeton Review people for the teacher's bio, if the teacher has one. If for some reason they won't give it to you, but you can get a name, I can probably track down info for you; I teach for Princeton Review and know a lot of people.

Neither of those are available in Nashville, which is why I didn't list them in my OP.

Well, factors other than the instructor include:

* Price (with any discounts — the iPad deal that PR is running right now is pretty sweet)
* Class size
* In-person help outside of class with your own teacher vs. a dial-in helpline
* Guarantees (what happens if you need to retake the test/course?)
* Online materials (recorded lessons, etc.)

There are probably a few others that I'm forgetting. You can check into all of those things for the companies you're considering.

Took a PR course, and wouldn't recommend it. Took a PS course after, and it was much better. It wasn't the instructor, it was the method. TM uses a similar method.

So you think I should take Testmasters over Princeton Review?

Are there any discounts for TM like there are for PR through TLS or no?
