Best of all? You can choose the environment that best fits your learning style and schedule. Both of our classroom and live online preparation courses include 30 hours of instruction by an expert instructor, 2 texbooks - The Official LSAT PrepTests and a workbook.

The LSAT exam is administered four times a year and our courses are precisely scheduled before each exam to help you hit your peak on the test date of your choice. Take a look at the classroom and online instruction options and plan to attend our FREE LSAT Information Workshop for a sneak peek and an introduction on how to prepare for the test.

The LSAT exam is hard but I feel more prepared than I did before I took this course. The instructor was excellent.

 

I feel much more confident taking the LSAT exam than I ever would have on my own. The instructor was very efficient and explained the analysis of every stem and answer choice. She made sure we all understood the material before moving on to the next topic. I highly recommend this class!

This class provided the confidence I need to tackle a wide variety of LSAT questions as well as the method needed to succeed by question type. I thoroughly enjoyed the instructor, who is interested in student success and is very knowledgeable, genuinely helpful and often stayed late to assist me and other students after class.
