These seminars are aimed at advanced students. They’re fairly short in length, and have a unique format:
- I picked some representative questions from tests 62-66 (mostly – there are some questions from later tests where required to show good examples, e.g. the new, “unusual” logic games”)
- I did the questions on my own, timed
- I took detailed notes on exactly what I did on each question and at each point during the setup
- In the videos, I walked through these notes and explained my own timed method
The goal of the seminar is to show how an expert, 175+ scorer approaches questions in real time. (I got a 177, officially). There are lots of things that I simply skip over, and other factors I pay particular attention to as shortcuts. The goal of the seminars is to show you how to approach each section as I do. These are advanced seminars because they assume some background knowledge, and go at a fast pace. I’m assuming you already know the basics. I don’t think there’s anything else on the LSAT market exactly like them. Enjoy! Length: LG and RC are five hours long. LR is a bit over 15 hours, as it is a much larger subject. Format: These are recorded videos which you can watch as often as you’d like. It’s best to do the questions from the videos before watching them. Tests used: Mostly 62-66. I wanted to use the smallest number of tests possible so that you wouldn’t need to use many fresh preptests in order to follow along. Already done the tests? Perfect. I often suggest people do the questions before going through the seminars, so this is no issue. Though if you haven’t done them, that’s fine too.

I really can’t recommend this course highly enough! I started my LSAT prep in a pretty solid place (upper 160s), but I found myself plateauing when just studying on my own. I used the LSAT Trainer book (a great place to start) and LawHub for tests, but I didn’t feel like I could break through and get consistently higher scores. In particular, I found myself struggling with Logic Games, something that I knew was learnable but that I was struggling to grasp fully on my own.
I decided to get this course and begin with the Logic Games section. My score immediately went up not only thanks to the practical tips on how to solve the games, but also thanks to Graeme’s advice on how to psychologically approach games to avoid getting frazzled and hurting yourself even more. Instead of getting several questions wrong and often feeling like I was running out of time, I instead started consistently getting -0 or, at worst, -1 on occasion and I rarely if ever had to be worried about time.
While Logic Games definitely made the biggest difference for me since that was where I was struggling more, the RC and LR courses are also excellent and definitely helped improve my score as well. The nice thing about LR in particular is that you can skip around and just watch the sections on the question types you struggle with instead of having to watch the entire 15 hours (unless you want to do that). Another great feature of the courses is that Graeme is available over email and he and the rest of the team continue to answer questions posted on the videos, so even though the courses are a few years old, you still get to have a very current experience.
All I can say is that I really recommend this course to anyone looking to have a serious impact on their LSAT score. In the end, I broke through the plateau and ended up with a 175 on my official LSAT thanks to these courses. Each point is so hard to get when you’re near the top and I don’t think I could’ve gotten that high without Graeme.

I benefitted a lot from the reading comprehension and logical reasoning mastery. I literally went -14 in RC to regularly scoring -1 to -3 (and sometimes perfect). Graeme explains things very straightforwardly and I experienced positive results from his Mastery courses within a week of watching the videos. I highly suggest both to anyone who has already studied a bit on their own and want to enhance their technique to score higher as well as those close to their exam date but aren’t consistently scoring where they want to be. I have no regrets at all using the courses and I found myself remembering the tips and tricks once I wrote on my actual test day.

Taking the Mastery Seminars was by far the best decision I made while studying for the LSAT.
After self-studying for close to a year (over several periods) and taking the test 3 times, I hit a plateau and burned out 1 month before my fourth attempt at the LSAT. I had been using Graeme’s free explanations, so being familiar with his material, I decided to give the mastery seminars a chance and was not disappointed.
I am not a natural test-taker so even if I got low-160’s in timed PT’s, I struggled with the pressure and failed to break the 160 barrier in real exams. But after the seminars, I gained the know-how and confidence to consistently hit mid-160’s in PT’s. And on my most recent exam, not only did I reach that goal, I made a **12 POINT IMPROVEMENT** from my previous score.
The seminars teach you how to think like a high-scorer so that you can choose the correct answer quickly, which is crucial and allows you to save time to get to as many questions as possible. The LG and RC seminars in particular really help you drill the necessary skills and approach each game/passage in an efficient manner.
I may be an exceptional case, but in general, I would say Graeme’s material is probably worth an easy 5 point increase. If you are familiar with the LSAT and struggling to break through a plateau, I can’t recommend this seminar enough.
