The Explanations That Should Have Come With The LSAT
– February 9, 2017
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.

Graeme bills the seminar as seeing how a high scorer works through their section, and that’s what you get. I found it to be valuable as I try to squeeze the last few points out of this test.
He goes on at length about how he maps a passage in his head, and what he considers important words or phrases to look out for that make referencing the back to the passage more manageable. I’ve been able to incorporate his timings and read-for-understanding-then-read-for-structure approach with some degree of success in the sections I’ve done since finishing the seminar.
The videos are compact and to the point, for the most part. He utilizes RC sections from a narrow range in the 60’s in order to avoid burning valuable prep material.
If you’ve found yourself at a point where your RC fundamentals are strong and you just need to dial it in before test day, do yourself a favor and spend a weekend with the seminar.
