- In total, there are over 125 available course hours.
The Best Instructors
The LSAT is one of the most intellectually demanding standardized tests ever developed. All of our instructors have scored in the 99th percentile on an actual LSAC-administered LSAT and are able to clearly explain the underlying principles of the LSAT. None of the other national LSAT companies match this instructor standard. Our instructors are enthusiastic and truly enjoy teaching, and we only hire instructors who can patiently and effectively explain the ideas in our course. We put them through a rigorous training program before they ever set foot in a real class. When you step into our classes you can be assured that your instructor has an absolute command over the concepts that appear on the LSAT and the most effective techniques for attacking those concepts.
The Best Material, including Licensed Use of Official LSAT Questions
PowerScore is licensed by the Law School Admission Council (the producers of the LSAT) to reproduce questions from actual released LSATs, and we use real LSATs in our class materials and all practice tests. Since concepts tend to repeat from test to test, only by studying real questions can you get the insight necessary to attack the methods used by the test-makers. If you work through the material we provide, you will have encountered every licensable LSAT question released since 1991. Students receive a set of comprehensive course books that have been specially designed to present the ideas in the course in the most efficient and clear manner possible. Although the PowerScore LSAT Bible publications are not included in the course materials in their published form, all of the techniques and strategies contained in the Bible series are included in the Full-Length Course materials in depth. There is no need to purchase any additional LSAT tests or preparation books when you take the PowerScore Full-Length LSAT Course. During the class instruction you will discuss the theories and structures that are the basis of the LSAT, and you will examine individual LSAT questions to reveal the concepts that the test-makers frequently use. Each lesson is generally divided into two or three topics. For example, you might start out by focusing on Logical Reasoning Weaken questions and end by discussing Grouping games and game theory from the Analytical Reasoning section. In addition, you will learn how to effectively apply such unique PowerScore techniques such as the Justify Formula, the Supporter/Defender Assumption Model, and the Variance Test. For the full listing of topics, check out our Full Length LSAT Course Syllabus.
Extensive homework is provided for each lesson and includes a variety of drills, questions, and analyses focused on the topics discussed in class. Answer keys are provided as well as a complete explanation for every Logical Reasoning question, setups for each Logic Game along with explanations for every single Logic Game question, and passage synopses and line reference notes for each Reading Comprehension passage. The homework is an essential part of the course and provides you with the opportunity to develop and refine your ability to apply our techniques and methodologies.
Free LSAT Hotline
If you are working on your homework and have any questions not answered by the written explanations, we have an LSAT Hotline (a toll-free 800 number) that is open 15 hours a week (5 PM to 8 PM Monday through Friday EST). The Hotline is staffed by our regular instructors who can quickly answer any question that is causing you difficulty, no matter if it is from the lessons, homework, practice tests or online supplements. Because you never have to leave the comfort of home to use the Hotline, you have access to top-notch support at maximum convenience.
Extensive Online Student Center
Prior to your first lesson you are given access to our Online Student Center where you can review hundreds of pages of additional course supplements and information, including drills, discussions, and concept guides. Also included in the Student Center is access to over 45 hours of optional online course modules. The PowerScore Online Test Scoring System allows you to input your practice test results and receive an immediate evaluation of your performance, both before and after the course.
Real Practice LSATs-4 Real, Proctored Exams
The practice tests we use are previously released LSATs, and currently we use the October 2012, June 2013, June 2010, and October 2011 LSATs as our in-class practice exams. With each test, you receive a comprehensive performance analysis categorized by question type and question difficulty. Comprehensive, in-class reviews are given for the second, third, and fourth practice tests. The use of real LSATs is essential to approximating the testing conditions you will encounter during the actual LSAT, and you can be assured that your scores on those practice tests are as accurate an indicator as possible of your real test performance. To further hone your test-taking abilities, you will also receive 25 additional complete take-home LSATs, as well as dozens of practice sections, and hundreds of supplemental practice questions.
Personal Attention and Unmatched Student Support
Our service and support is simply the best in the industry. Give us a call, you'll talk to a real person immediately, not a faceless hold system. We promise not to stick you in a class with 80 students, ignore your call or email, or make you come to our office for your tests and materials.
An Incredible Value
The total cost of our 125-hour full-length course, including all materials, is $1295. The price includes the course materials, use of authentic LSAT questions, 29 actual take-home LSATs, extensive homework, the free LSAT Hotline, and access to our Online Student Center and optional online course modules. Compared to our competitors, our price is quite reasonable. Why? Because exceptional quality LSAT preparation does not have to cost $1500 or $1600. We are dedicated to providing a fun and informative course while at the same time treating you like a person and not a number.
The numbers speak for themselves...
Total Course Lecture Hours: These figures represent the total number of classroom lecture hours for each course. In some cities Kaplan or Princeton Review may offer other live course options with fewer or greater hours.
Minimum Instructor LSAT Percentile: The Minimum Instructor LSAT Percentile is determined by the results of a LSAC-administered LSAT and corresponding percentile. All PowerScore instructors have taken an actual LSAC-administered LSAT and scored in the 99th percentile. Some other companies, including Kaplan and Princeton Review, allow instructor applicants to come to their offices to take a pre-hiring LSAT. However, since these LSATs are not administered by LSAC, and therefore do not produce national score percentiles, these companies have no minimum national standard.
Personal Set of Every Real LSAT Question? Each student in the PowerScore LSAT class receives a personal copy of every single LSAT question currently released by LSAC, the producers of the LSAT. Students at certain other companies, although they have access to at least some of these questions, do not receive a personal copy of every single released question. Why not make sure you have full access to the best study material available?
Course Cost: Again, these costs may vary by location.
What we cover in class
There are a total of twenty live meetings in the PowerScore LSAT Course: twelve lessons, four full-length proctored practice LSATs, three practice test reviews, and one Challenge Review session. The total in-class instruction time is sixty-four hours, and practice tests add an additional sixteen hours. In addition, there are over 40 hours of online course modules presented on the same learning platform used in our popular Live Online LSAT Course. In total, there are over 125 available course hours.
Because of the significant amount of conceptual and practice material covered in every class, each lesson is divided into two 2-hour sessions with a short break in the interim. Each of the twelve lessons is accompanied by a comprehensive homework section that contains drills, analyses, questions, and explanations. The additional course modules also cover a variety of subjects, as detailed below.
You also receive a set of 4 separate course books, which have been specially designed to present the ideas in the course in the most efficient and clear manner possible. The following syllabus is used in the PowerScore LSAT Course:
