What to study before class begins?

Postby dba415 » Sat Sep 17, 2011 5:56 pm

Hey I am about to start a class in a couple of weeks (blueprint) but the site explicitly states that one shouldn't study different material before class starts.

I'm not sure, I WANT to study because it's 2 weeks,valuable time, but if it will lower my potential in the class then I won't.

I'm in the process of doing powerscore bibles at the moment. Should I continue or do something else?

We tell you not to prep anything before class for 3 main reasons:

1) Our class is complete (just like any class worth taking), so there's no need to do additional prep - we'll cover all the stuff you need to know during the course.

2) Your instructor will be able to 'course correct' as you go, so if you run into an issue, you can get an immediate answer. If you hit a wall of understanding by yourself, there's not an immediate outlet to fix your faulty reasoning (though TLS can be good for that).

3) While we're teaching the same logic, all the courses have different specific methods. If you don't completely understand the materials, the different methods can be confusing. That being said, the I've had plenty of kids in my classes use the PS Bibles while taking the class, and, for the most part, it didn't create any problems.

So, in short, if you absolutely must do something because otherwise you'll sit around agonizing over the 'wasted' time, going through the PS Bibles probably won't hurt you in any way. Just realize that there's going to be repetition once the course starts, and the course will be more in depth. So I would probably enjoy the next two weeks before starting to study, since LSAT prep is never a wholly enjoyable experience!
