Attending the LSAT Summer Prep course was the turning point for me after not getting the results I wanted from other resources. We thoroughly went through sections from real LSAT tests, and practiced the best way to tackle them. By the end of the course, my most dreaded section became my favourite, and I received the results I was looking for after taking the LSAT once.
