Have you been studying for the LSAT for a while and want to break through a plateau? These seminars are for you.
Basically these are 6 hour long sessions that show how I do each section. Rather than going over basics, they’re aimed at showing you the mindset of a high scorer. Before each session I did material from that section timed, and then took detailed notes on exactly what I was thinking and doing at each moment. Students who have taken them said they showed them things they had never considered while using other materials.
Materials Required: To do these, you need preptests 62-71. Most of the questions are chosen from preptests 62-66. You can get these tests for $20 from amazon; they’re fairly essential tests for LSAT studying.
Already done the tests? Perfect. I often suggest people do the questions before going through the seminars, so this is no issue. But if you haven’t done the tests, that’s fine too.
LG Mastery Seminar Reviews
Your seminar was fantastic and taught me how to approach the games in a manner that actually made sense. I felt confident going into the section on the day of my exam and finished the section without feeling a sense of complete dread.
It’s been a while since I’ve taken the LSAT, but I am happy to report that I got into law school. I definitely recall feeling more confident about logic games the day of my exam, and I would not have felt so confident without your seminar and instruction.
Thank you very much, Graeme.
Graeme offered a lot of helpful hints/strategies that not only apply to the games he reviews in his videos but also to a lot of other games in general. I also really liked that he picked specific games that he thought were hard so that we could get at least some exposure to the difficult games before the test
The last two weeks before I took the LSAT, I started burning out, and my scores were dropping significantly. I took three days off, and then spent the next three days taking the mastery seminars. I went back to scoring -0 on LG and -1 on RC and LR. I found the tips really really helpful, and stopped second-guessing myself every time I put an answer down.. After finishing the seminars I took a PT the week before my LSAT, scored a 178, and ended up scoring a 175 on the real thing. I tell all my friends studying for the LSAT to take these seminars. Highly highly recommend.
LR Mastery Seminar Reviews
This seminar was great! It has helped me a improve in the more common, time consuming, and harder questions of the Logical Reasoning section, such as parallel, flaw, and sufficient assumptions. It is amazing to see how fast one can go when approaching questions the way Graeme shows you in this seminar.
After listening to all of the lessons, my LR score improved 5 points from -10 to -5. This is a great resource for students who are self-studying to complement their practice tests and textbooks with.
I was really impressed by this seminar. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a more efficient and timely approach when tackling theLR section. Graeme is thorough and insightful in the way he explains and goes about answering each LR question type. Not only did my score improve but I was able to approach this section with utter confidence.
This seminar really opens your eyes to new ways on how to approach question types (especially parallel and flaw parallel). The questions covered are plentiful, and the explanations are extremely specific. What I really appreciated is how Graeme’s insight is not only specific to attacking questions, but the mental aspect of the LSAT. In Graeme we Trust!
RC Mastery Seminar Reviews
This seminar was really helpful and I highly recommend. I have tried other strategies/tips for quite some time on RC, and after an initial boost had plateaued (I would say it was more-so just gaining experience that led to the boost). As a result, I had just tried jumbling together a few of my stray observations/methods to improve my score on this section, with limited success. With this seminar, I finally witnessed a more effective strategy to RC that works well. I have noticed a 2-3 point bump on RC just by modifying my methods with what I learned in the seminar (which if you have studied RC for some time, you know this is a pretty big improvement), and that is just in the immediate aftermath. Some of the tips – reading The Economist, gaining background knowledge in various fields- are fairly boilerplate and are common knowledge at this point if you have researched RC. Where this seminar really is a home run is just seeing the strategy and getting an inside look into what to look for and how to ‘detect’ what will be on the questions following the passage. That intuition building is exactly the type of strategy that will take your RC to the next level. If you are looking to improve your RC score, I recommend implementing this into your study regimen.
I think Graeme’s RC seminars are extremely helpful. And though my progress may not be a huge leap immediately （-15 to -10）, I just keep improving by the right way he taught me which is very important I think. Looking forward to ur LR seminar!
I was hesitant to purchase Graeme’s RC seminar, as I tend to work best when I self-study. However, the RC seminar was definitely worth it (the Reddit discount code makes it even more worth it). For me, the best parts of the seminar involved his discussion of the most relevant information to focus on when reading passages, his instruction on time-management, and having the opportunity to develop insight into his thought process as he eliminates answers quickly. I have read all the Powerscore books as well as The LSAT Trainer. What Graeme discusses in the seminar is not something that you can get from these books or any of 7 Sage’s explanatory videos. At this point I cannot quantify my progress as a result of this seminar, but I can say that the course allowed me to gain well-founded confidence. For the first time since I began studying for the LSAT over a year ago, I do not feel like my RC score is a spin of the roulette wheel. I have tried a lot of techniques including highlighting, underlining, speed reading, and taking notes. I always felt rushed and none of these techniques felt natural to me. Graeme’s seminar has allowed me to find flow in RC. I think this seminar would be helpful for people at a variety of levels. Thanks Graeme!
Thanks to Graeme’s RC mastery seminar, I was able to know exactly how a high-scorer reads a passage, approaches a problem, and eliminates or confirms each answer choice. I usually had no trouble understanding explanations of RC problems given enough time, but could seldom finish the section in 35 minutes before my first LSAT. For this reason, seeing the thought process of a high-scorer (Graeme!) is really enlightening. After purchasing and watching the seminar a week before the test, I was able to finish all sections on time during my September LSAT and got 167. In the following months, I followed Graeme’s advice, read The Economist in my spare time, and took more practice tests – and I got an unbelievable 177 in my February LSAT this year! This mastery seminar is the only course I enrolled in to get from 159 diagnostic last August to 177 this February (in addition to practice tests and The LSAT Trainer, but they are not “courses”). I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their RC.
All Mastery Seminars Reviews
Before I took Graeme’s courses, I was too prideful to admit that I needed tutoring. I’ve never needed tutoring in ANYTHING in my life. But the LSAT is a different animal that requires the best guidance from those who know it well and, most importantly, can teach it well.
Graeme’s mastery seminars have helped me tremendously. I’m now approaching most LR questions and LG through the lens of an expert. I used to struggle immensely with LR questions but Graeme’s tips in understanding the structure of arguments along with understanding how the evidence supports (or does not support) the conclusion, and prephrasing the right answer have helped me spot out the traps and understand why they are wrong.
I was skeptical in paying ANY sort of money for tutoring but I believe it is money well spent if it can give you a great scholarship for law school. Overall, I highly recommend Graeme’s courses for anyone who’s looking to improve in any capacity for the LSAT.
You will not be disappointed!
Graeme’s Mastery Seminars provided me with fresh perspectives on both test taking strategy and problem solving techniques. Many of his techniques are unique to the seminars (I say this after having used other video courses/prep books over my prep history), which is why I believe that they are a worthy investment.
Although subtle, many of Graeme’s techniques, if applied correctly, can greatly increase ones test-taking efficiency. Whereas I used to struggle to finish timed logical reasoning sections, after practicing the techniques presented in the seminar (in conjunction with completing timed excersies and meeting with Graeme for personal tutoring), I have been able to reach the point where I now have enough time at the end of an LR section to go back and check 2-3 problems.
I believe that Graemes emphasis on achieving efficiency indirectly leads to improvements in accuracy for the following reason: if you now have time to go back and check difficult problems at the end of a section, you now are able to potentially catch errors which you might have not had the chance to do if you had finished the section with no time remaining. I would thus recommend the seminars to anybody seeking to fine-tune their performance in the pursuit of a stellar score.
While the LSAT course I took in Toronto offered explanations that would help me gain 1 or 2 points, they often made the questions more complicated than they ought to be. Graeme rips apart the arguments and focuses on the crucial elements and nuances in the LSAT that would help eliminate answer choices accurately quickly.
I hit a plateau after repeatedly doing pretests, so taking the seminar helped to force me to drill different question types (LR), and helped me to better actively read in RC. In the actual test I would estimate an easy improvement of 5 points. I know it’s not much, but consider I did it crash style (I finished all sessions in 2 weeks while working full time) I think if I can take my time it’ll be even more helpful. If you have more time before your test, you should definitely get this one, you can do it on your own time, repeat watching and really understood each type, it’ll definitely help with your score.
I found Graeme’s mastery seminars very clear, straightforward and helpful. They offer new ways of thinking about the questions, which I found especially beneficial for logic games. For example, when the rules stipulate that V is before R and R is before H, then another rule says “H cannot be last,” Graeme would write it as V-R-H-_ rather than just V-R-H. The former provides a better visual and you no longer have to remember that H cannot go last.
