The best online LSAT course?

Postby pinksonnet » Wed Jun 15, 2011 1:02 am

Hi guys,
I'm planning to take the test in October, and trying to find a decent online prep course this summer.
I've heard some good things about TestMasters and Blueprint....not sure which one I' will go for.
Has anyone taken either of those online prep courses?
If so, please let me know which is better!!
Many thanks in advance! :P

I recently purchased the online BP course. Finished two (out of 16) lessons so far and the homeworks associated with it. It's pretty well laid out and I really like it (I've done the bible self study earlier). Time will tell if it'll work

Since I see our name up there, I'll say that there are different "online" courses. Some are recordings, some are live. Depends on what you think will work best, your schedule, etc. Many outfits allow you to test out what they do as a trial - I'd suggest doing that.

Those prep courses are only useful if you don't have the discipline to set up your own study schedule. Save your money and buy PTs.

Thanks everyone for the replies!
I still haven't decided which one I will go for though...
What about textbooks?
I know that TestMasters send out textbooks that will be used with the online lectures... but does anybody know what other institutions do in terms of textbooks?
Also... who does live lectures and who does recorded lectures?
I personally prefer recorded ones since it will give me more flexible schedules.

Thanks again!

Did you have to purchase textbooks for the course?

Nope! It's included in the price of the course. You'll get 4 lessons books as well as a Supplement book that has practice tests, time trials, etc. It's the same curriculum/text books as the live in-person class BP offers. Apparently they used virtually all the released LSAT questions to develop their curriculum (but there's "only" 14 full exams included...my thought is that for the exams which they pulled the questions from for the lessons.....they didn't print those out)

I too love the flexibility of the prerecorded courses....the course has met my expectation. Although it's recorded it's almost like being in a class since the video pauses after saying something like "now turn to the next page and try this problem."

Let me know if you have any other questions.
