Before TestMasters: 156
After TestMasters: 165
“I first heard about TestMasters through a friend who took the class and scored a 165. Her recommendation plus the results she got were enough for me to consider signing up. I had recently graduated from graduate school and took the summer off before starting work. I studied business in undergrad and graduate school and wanted to do something to ensure I got the best score I was capable of (so that I would only have to take the test once). I purchased two different LSAT books but without the classroom environment, self-study proved futile. I spoke with a different friend who took a LSAT class with Kaplan, and while she was happy with the class, she wasn’t satisfied with her score.
I visited the TestMasters website and saw that there was a class offered in my area. I registered for the class and looked forward to receiving my study materials in the mail. I took the first practice test with very little preparation and scored a 156, Shannon (our instructor) also took the time to explain the LSAT, how it factors into your application to law school, and what we needed to do as students to get the most out of the class.
TestMasters is definitely a question-based class, by the end of the course you’ve seen every type of question you might see on the LSAT and you have enough practice to know how to approach the question, how to answer the question, how to recognize a right answer and how to recognize a wrong answer. At first all the questions seem overwhelming, but Shannon provided a system for us to see every type of question even if we couldn’t complete all the homework in-between classes.
TestMasters’ diagnostic scoring is very helpful. In addition to knowing what score you would have received on the real LSAT and seeing which questions you got right and wrong, you also get a detailed report showing how you did on each specific question type. These reports allowed me to focus on my weakest section (logic games) as my test date approached.
I scored my highest on the final practice test, a 167. On the December 2013 LSAT I got a 165. There is no way I would’ve been able to achieve that without TestMasters!”
