Powerscore full length course v Manhattan full length course

Postby rshehadeh9091 » Fri Jul 06, 2012 2:38 pm

I considered Testmasters but it's too far and I don't have a car yet.

The Powerscore class starts next month, which gives me a month to prepare on my own a little; however, Manhattan begins Tuesday. Manhattan's "170+" focus leads me to believe individuals taking this class my already have some background in the lsat, or said individuals know their intellectual capacities are such that they feel they can successfully work through "advanced Manhattan material," as opposed to Powerscore's being tailored toward everyone... ? Idk, I'd like to think that with my fulltime studying schedule I too am focused on braking 170 sometimes during my PTing. I'm reading through powerscore's LGB this week and so far I like their method. I feel like with a month of Powerscore review on my own I'll really get the most out of their course...

Thoughts?

Also, this week I've just been sleeping in till 9 or 10, then blasting through 3-4 hours of studying, then gym, then a little more studying (1 hour or 2 tops), then watching It's Always Sunny and sleeping. I feel, however, that I would rather start something different next week: Wake up a 5:30am, be in the coffee shop near UCI's library till it opens, then once it opens I bang out there till 4ish, when I go to the gym then come home after. Thoughts on this? I just don't like sitting in my room too much. In college I never did work in my room, always the lib.

-Thanks guys.

I'm sure you'll find good reviews of both company's classes (there's a thread of reviews at the top of this forum page). There are some differences in how we structure our programs. vet teachers, etc. But, the teacher quality and, I'd add, class size, definitely is what makes the difference. At least for us, you can come and sit in on the first class as a trial student to make sure it's a good fit for you, assuming there's a free seat. Maybe if you call PS they'll accommodate a trial of their class too.

Good luck, no matter what you do!

(we can continue the conversation through pm if you like)

That seems to be somewhere around 8-10 hours of studying. That's WAY too much to do in a day. 4-5 hours should be your limit - any more than that and you'll burn out and run out of material.
