Summer LSAT Course
Our summer LSAT class offers powerful, well-timed preparation for students who plan to take the LSAT in August, September and/or October. This will position them nicely for the Fall law school application cycle.
Former attorney and longtime LSAT instructor Matt Hamm uses a deeply researched, systematic pedagogy to prepare students for each of the exam’s three sections: Logical Reasoning, Analytical Reasoning (Logic Games), and Reading Comprehension. During the 30 hours of in-person instruction, Matt will teach students to identify and attack the 21 Logical Reasoning question types, 6 Logic Game structures, and 5 Reading Comprehension passage categories.
To earn high LSAT scores, students must understand and draw inferences from nuanced texts, analyze and evaluate evidence-based arguments, and master the formal conditional logic used throughout the exam. MJ Test Prep’s LSAT course will equip students with the skills they need to excel at each of these tasks.
The intensive curriculum includes full LSAT exams, isolated exam sections, and question-type practice sets. By the time they complete the course, students will have tackled over 50 LSATs worth of material, including 1000+ Logical Reasoning questions and hundreds of Logic Games and Reading Comprehension passages.
This class is designed for serious students who are committed to raising their scores by completing all the demanding course work. Matt will administer a pre-class LSAT diagnostic to determine students’ readiness. Those who score below 150 on the diagnostic may struggle with the pace of class instruction and the intensity of the workload. For such students, personalized, one-on-one tutoring sessions with Matt offer a better path to LSAT success.
