Studying for the LSAT? This weekend crash course will give you everything you need to get ready for the test.
Taught by Graeme Blake, who scored a 177 on the LSAT, and has taught classes in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Ottawa. Graeme is the creator of LSAT Hacks, a site with free explanations used by over 15,000 LSAT students per month.
This will be a small group class, likely no more than 10 students, so there be plenty of opportunity for 1-on-1 instruction.
Do you always write in the third person?
Usually not. Actually, I’m going to switch to first person for this FAQ. I’m advertising this class to some people who might not know my site, so I made the main description an introduction.
What is the goal of the course?
To give you a solid overview of the LSAT. Obviously, two days is not enough to learn everything. But the course will teach how to study during the rest of your study period, and gives access to a larger online course with further lessons to guide study.
This course already has reviews. How is that?
I use the same course product listing for each weekend course. So the other reviews are from people who took a weekend course with me in the past. (It’s a lot simpler, software and accounting-wise, to keep the same listing rather than make a new one each time I teach)
What is the online course in the bundled version?
It’s a class I taught in spring 2016, and recorded. It was a full three month course covering every aspect of the LSAT in depth.
Why teach a class in my city?
I live in Montreal. I like traveling. So teaching an LSAT class is a good way to pay for seeing a new city, meet some new people. The classes are usually pretty fun to teach.
Why is the price in US dollars?
It’s….complicated. Basically, the LSAT market is mainly American, so my course and books are priced in US dollars. And it’s surprisingly different, accounting and tech-wise, to create a single product that’s only in CAD. Basically, I’d have to create a whole new site just for this class.
So, rather than do that, I just set the US price to match the Canadian price I had in mind: roughly $400 Canadian.
What course material is included?
I’m going to teach the course using preptests 62-71. These are recent tests, which will let us talk about changes to the test that have made it less predictable.
Is there a diagnostic test?
Yes. I’m going to be giving instructions for how to take the June 2007 test with proper timing. I could have done this in person, but I’m avoiding doing that for two reasons:
- Adding another rental day + overnight stay for me + teaching day would probably have added $100 to the class, and
- Learning to time yourself properly is crucial. Taking the test on your own is a good chance to learn. I’ll be giving detailed instructions for how to do this, via video.
Where is the course located?
Varies by city. But, usually somewhere central, like a university classroom or a private space that has meeting rooms.
What’s the class schedule
Saturday and Sunday from 10-5:30. There will be a break for lunch.
I’m open to starting later . So if you’re interested in the class but would prefer a different time, let me know.
