Edited post ownership. Not normally done, but it was the simplest way to make these reposts accessible to Kurst so he could edit/revise them in the future.

Also stickied, because this is a great resource. Thanks, Kurst.

Thanks, Van. I felt kind of uncomfortable having all of his work under my name, I didn't know you guys could do that.

Thanks vanwinkle and alexonfyre. Not sure this is worthy of a sticky, but at least the answer to this frequently asked question is readily available.

It helped me, and they were getting quoted left and right, so it seemed like it would be helpful to make it more available.

Thanks a lot for putting all of that together, in the end I decided on Blueprint and so far so good.

Greetings All,
I would like to request your opinions, please. Okay, disclosure time which I am embarrassed to admit, but since I am asking for your honest opinion, least I can do is be honest too. Here goes...I have taken the LSAT twice. Both times involved Kaplan LSAT classroom course and tutoring. I scored a 139 and 146, respectively. I am now taking a Powerscore (PS) LSAT classroom course and have registered for the Oct 2011 LSAT. I have taken two practice tests during PS course and scored an abysmal 142 and 141, respectively. I do the homework, attend the classes religiously and study every night (I work full time). I'm still having problems mostly with logical reasoning (LR) (assumption, flaw, strengthen/weaken). Should I invest in the PS LR Bible, or try another guide like Manhattan LR guide? I am putting in all this effort and it is so frustrating that I can't even break 150 on the LSAT. Any advice? Please be kind...I know I'm not the sharpest tool in the bunch, but I do have a Master's degree and have the discipline for law school if I can just get in.

Do you work on weekends as well? One of the problems might be your night studying. It's pretty hard to concentrate on the LSAT when you are half sleeping.

In terms of current preparation it might be better to pay more attention to the mistakes you make. Understand each one of them. Ask your kaplan teacher to explain your mistakes one by one. At your stage it's not that important what book you use it is more about understanding what you do wrong.

I recommend prepping with an online course b/c it's convenient and because a one on one experience. Check out IAmASpammer.com - http://www.spam.com - the tutors are brilliant and are great teachers!

You are probably just studying wrong. You are using 140 strategies and practicing with them so you're going to keep getting a 140. It's really a bad thing you spent your money on Kaplan, because I've heard it's useless. You need private tutoring. I took Nicholas Hudson in Manhttan through Power Score. If you want to go to a T14 you need someone that can focus on what YOU need to work on and the strategies YOU need to learn. If you don't want to go to a T14 please please don't be a lawyer, do something else. You will NOT get a job that allows you to pay off your debt and if you will, Biglaw if NO FUN, you will regret such a life decision. There are so so many careers, don't get into this one because you feel like you have no other choice.

BTW I have scored as low as 140 and am now scoring 170 so it can be done.
