If I relocate from Portland to a different city, am I able to transfer classes?
If you are registered for the Portland TestMasters LSAT course location and you need to attend a lesson in a different location, you can log in to the Online Resource Center to obtain audit passes for upcoming LSAT classes in alternate locations. If you need to switch locations permanently, you can do so as long as space is available in the new LSAT class location. If you would like to transfer classes, you should contact TestMasters immediately so we can reserve you a space in the new LSAT class location you prefer.
How do I register for the Portland TestMasters Course?
To reserve a spot in an LSAT review course, you must either pay the tuition in full or make a down payment of at least $100. If you choose to make a down payment, you must pay the remainder of the tuition at least one week prior to the start of your LSAT classes. You can register online for any of our courses. TestMasters accepts the following forms of payment: checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Please note that TestMasters only accepts personal checks that are received at least ten days prior to the first class meeting. If you complete your enrollment less than one week before the first LSAT class meeting, you will be charged a $50 late registration fee.
What can I do if I have questions about the TestMasters homework?
Students enrolled in the live, 80-hour TestMasters LSAT course have access to the Student Helpline and to 30 minute Q&A periods prior to each lesson. Students are encouraged to make use of either of these resources to get assistance with any of the LSAT prep questions in their homework and lesson material. The Student Helpline makes TestMasters instructors available outside of regular classroom hours, and it is available on the weekdays from 1 PM to 4 PM ET (10 AM – 1 PM PT). The Q&A sessions let students ask their own instructor homework questions before they begin any new lesson material.
Are LSAT preparation books included in the cost of the full-length TestMasters LSAT course?
As a student in the TestMasters Portland Weekend LSAT course you will receive access to the Online Resource Center to download and score supplemental diagnostic exams, and a 400+ page textbook with the course materials and supplemental LSAT questions. All course materials are proprietary of TestMasters and the Law School Admission Council. TestMasters only uses officially licensed LSAT questions released by the LSAC.
How can I make up a diagnostic if I am unable to attend my scheduled Portland diagnostic?
If you know that you will not be able to attend a diagnostic exam ahead of time you can request that it be released early in the Online Resource Center. You can then print out the diagnostic exam and self-proctor the test at your earliest convenience. All proctored diagnostic exams must be scored by our office and answer sheets can either be faxed or scanned and emailed so that your results will be posted in the Online Resource Center. Additionally, if another class is taking a diagnostic at a later date that does not conflict with your regular class schedule you may use one of your audit passes to sit in on the exam at that time.
Should I do any LSAT studying before my Portland TestMasters class begins?
It is not in your best interest to do any LSAT prep before enrolling in the TestMasters LSAT course. Our classes are designed to introduce you to the best LSAT preparation strategies available, and students who study on their own are in danger of learning techniques that are inconsistent with the TestMasters methodology. Students who enroll in the TestMasters course can avoid having to unlearn other LSAT studying techniques by avoiding doing any LSAT preparation before the course begins.
Can I work with a private tutor in Portland?
Instructors are available for in-person LSAT private tutoring at each of the locations where a TestMasters class I held. It is possible that we have LSAT tutors available in other cities aside from where classes are offered, but tutoring is dependent on instructor availability. If we do not have an instructor based in your area, you can also work with a tutor remotely via our telephonic tutoring service.
Are payment plans for the Portland LSAT Course available through TestMasters?
Students can register for a TestMasters LSAT course by making a $100 down payment. The course tuition can then be paid in any number of installments up until a week prior to the start of the course. Students must be paid in full no later than 7 days prior to the first LSAT class meeting in order to receive their TestMasters LSAT preparation books and to attend class.
What is on the LSAT?
Students applying to American Bar Association (ABA)-approved law schools, and many law schools in Canada, must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The LSAT is a half-day, standardized graduate entrance exam that tests a student’s critical reading and reasoning aptitude.
Once I complete the TestMasters LSAT preparation course, should I take the LSAT right away?
TestMasters typically recommends that students take the Law School Admission Test soon after preparing for it as long as they feel ready to do so because the study strategies are still at the forefront of students’ minds at this point. If students are not yet consistently reaching scores on their practice LSATs that they would be happy with on the actual test, however, it might be worth waiting and studying for the LSAT longer. All students should consider whether the schools they are applying to have rolling admissions when determining the best time to take the test and send in applications.
Who wrote the TestMasters LSAT course?
TestMasters founder, Robin Singh, is the world’s leading expert on LSAT preparation. He holds the world record for the highest number of perfect LSAT scores (12) and leads a full-time research and development team in updating the TestMasters course materials every year.
How do the full-length LSAT course and the weekend course differ?
The two live classroom options TestMasters offers—the full-length LSAT course and the weekend course—both provide students with an opportunity to learn techniques and strategies for taking the LSAT from an instructor who has scored in the 98th percentile or higher on the LSAT. The primary difference between the two courses is the number of hours of instruction: the full-length course is comprehensive with 80 hours of instruction over many weeks, and the weekend course is 16 hours of instruction over one weekend shortly before the LSAT is administered. The weekend course is helpful for students who cannot commit to taking the full-length course but still want live instruction and for students who may have already done their LSAT prep but would like to refresh their understanding before taking the test.
When does the Law School Admission Council administer the LSAT?
Students can only take the LSAT on one of the four LSAT administrations offered each year. The test is given in February, June, September/October, and December.
I am planning on studying for the LSAT with a private tutor. If I am working with a TestMasters tutor, what LSAT preparation materials do I need?
If you are enrolled in TestMasters LSAT private tutoring, you may only use course materials purchased directly from TestMasters, or LSAT PrepTests purchased directly from the Law School Admission Council.
Will my TestMasters tutor help me identify how I can best study for the LSAT?
Whether students need a couple of hours of private tutoring to brush up on a few weak spots through some LSAT review or a more comprehensive series of one-on-one sessions, TestMasters can help. Our tutors have all scored in the 98th percentile or higher on an LSAC-administered LSAT, so they have the expertise to guide you through your LSAT prep. TestMasters tutors can help you to fix weak spots you have already identified or help you to identify more ways that you can study to improve your score.
How will my LSAT score affect my law school applications?
The most heavily weighted component of law school admissions for most law schools is a student’s LSAT score; GPA is a distant second. The LSAT receives the most weight both because it correlates most highly with first year law school grades and because it tests reasoning and reading skills students need for success in law school and in the practice of law. Since the LSAT is a learnable test, anyone who dedicates themselves to adequate LSAT prep can increase their competitiveness at their top choice law schools.
When did TestMasters first start holding classes?
Since 1991 more than 100,000 students have enrolled in TestMasters LSAT preparation classes.
How can I get my diagnostic test results?
Diagnostic scores can be accessed in one of two ways. For proctored diagnostics, you can log in to the Online Resource Center by 9AM the day after the LSAT prep test was administered and find your score report there. Often your test results will be available sooner. For supplemental diagnostics, your score report will be available once you have logged in to the Online Resource Center and scored your diagnostic. These score reports include important information to help you effectively determine your strengths and weaknesses.
