If you’re considering applying to law school, you know that there will be challenges ahead. The first step in a law school application is the Law School Admittance Test (LSAT) exam, which can be daunting for many students. While the test is indeed challenging, there are ways to gain a distinct advantage before test day. The Law School Admissions Council (LSAC), which administers the LSAT, highly recommends that you should start with a practice test, and take it under the same time constraints you’d experience with the actual test, but of course, any savvy student knows that it will take more than that to score well on test day.
Having practice scores is a good way to understand your baseline and think about what you can do to improve, but as with any admissions exam, working with a qualified instructor can calm test-prep fears and give you the preparation you need to really soar. The instructors at a trusted test prep centre like Toronto’s Quantum Test Prep are MBA and MEd graduates with years of teaching experience — and who know the exam inside and out. At Quantum, the teaching philosophy is that the LSAT, like the GMAT and GRE, is a standardized test that asks standardized questions, based on standardized content in a standardized format with standardized answers. Once you understand the pattern, you’re on your way to success.
But don’t be fooled into thinking a standardized approach lacks customization; if you take one of Quantum’s test prep workshops in Toronto, you will receive instruction that’s tailored to you. These courses are conveniently scheduled on weekends, so whether you’re in school or hold a job, you will be able to get the teaching time you need to get your highest score.
Before you get started, you can take a free personal assessment based on how you scored on the LSAT practice test, and based on this information, your instructor will work with you to increase your strengths and address your target areas.
Working with a highly-trained instructor over time builds your familiarity with the test content. Better test prep services also deliver more teaching hours, so that you get the most content exposure possible before you take the actual exam. But, if you’re not satisfied with your score, there is a free course repeat guarantee, and in addition to a comprehensive LSAT prep course, Quantum also provides complimentary events so you can prepare for the exam in context. These include workshops, trial classes, and mock exams, as well as info sessions at campuses across Ontario, which you can access without every having enrolled.
These events are a great way to build on topics you are already covering in class, so you get even more exposure to the most frequently-covered issues on the exam, and a trial class gives you the opportunity to experience their approach before you commit to a course.
If you’re serious about your LSAT score, consider a Quantum Test Prep LSAT workshop, which will give you the opportunity to ask personal questions you have about the exam and will also provide upcoming course dates. Workshop topics include study tips and exam overviews taken directly from LSAC itself, so you know what to expect on test day. And mock exams give you even more practice taking the test under timed conditions, using previous questions from the real exam.
One of the other benefits of a test prep course is that you can take a free assessment and build a custom study plan with an instructor. Working with someone who’s taken the exam and scored in the top percentile will help you know where your strengths and weaknesses lie and how to profit from the former to overcome the latter.
