LSAT Prep Options Overview

Pre-Law Services is not affiliated with any LSAT prep company and we do not endorse any particular study method. This LSAT prep information is provided to help you identify the best fit for you.

If you are planning to take the December or February LSAT, now is the time to explore all of your LSAT prep options. A lot of LSAT prep companies are out there, so do your homework and take the time to find which one suits you best!

Questions to ask an LSAT prep company:

  • What format do you offer (in person/online/hybrid/tutoring)? What length of class do you offer?
  • How are your teachers trained? What can I do if I don’t click with my instructor?
  • What is your refund policy?
  • What is a realistic time commitment required for the class?
  • Can I speak to a student who has taken this course before?

To help you investigate your LSAT prep options, here is an overview of LSAT prep programs.For available discounts for some of these LSAT prep options, visit the Pre-Law Advising Services Compass page and click on LSAT Prep.
