Course Overview: You have up to 30 hours of personal coaching on all aspects of the LSAT. Up to one hour of the allotted hours can be used for law school admissions issues other than the LSAT.

Enrollment in this program also entitles you to attend a live-online, 5-week, 15-hour classroom program offered by Cutts Graduate Reviews, typically given in June or Sept-Oct, subject to availability.

Why this program? This is an highly-effective and affordable program that provides you with the personalized touch of an uniquely experienced, nationally recognized test prep specialist.

What is Coaching? Coaching is the most personalized and direct way to master the LSAT. Most students work with Mr. Cutts once or twice a week by phone or video chat where you will receive specific assignments, review your assignments, and go over actual test questions to improve your skills. Your timing and testing strategies will be reviewed and you will be provided with personalized instruction. Mr. Cutts will direct your study plan and make sure you are staying on track. You will have ample opportunity to ask any questions you have about applying successfully to your graduate program.

This program prepares students for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). The course covers timing strategy and problem-solving strategies for the Reading Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, and Analytical Reasoning sections of the test, as well as for the essay.

You will learn how to analyze logic, including if/then statements and deductive and inductive reasoning. You will learn to identify the main types of logical reasoning, including analogy, cause and effect, and statistical arguments. You will learn to identify faulty argument types, including argument against the person, false analogy, false cause, ambiguity, circular reasoning, and false appeal to authority.

You will learn how to skim Reading Comprehension passages for structure and tools for distinguishing between two very close answer choices. You will develop a systematic approach for organizing Analytical Reasoning information, how to create a powerful diagram, and how to recognize the main types of Analytical Reasoning questions.

You will learn how to maximize your use of time on the test, how to avoid the most common timing pitfalls, and how to gain significant extra points through timing strategy.

The strategies taught in this program have been tested and refined over 30 years of test prep experience with over a thousand students worldwide.

Registration in this course includes registration in the STEPS to the LSAT program, an online study system. STEPS also helps you connect with study partners.

The course includes up to thirty hours of personal coaching help outside of class for a period of twelve months from the start of the course.
