THEORY MODULE TEXT- Casebook for the Deconstruction
During the Theory Module, LSAT questions are classified according to the issues they contain within a single text called The Casebook for the Deconstruction. The Casebook is organized along the lines of any law school textbook, hence it contains (i) LSAT questions classified by issue (or combination of issues), (ii) typical as well as boundary cases for each issue, and (iii) methods for solving each LSAT case. Our unique and concise organization enables students to master the LSAT by studying a single text. The Casebook is also governed by a set of maps that help consolidate the triggers- issues- and case applications for each chapter. If it's been on the LSAT, it's been mapped in The Casebook
APPLICATION MODULE TEXT- Official Preptests
During the Application Module, the 12 most recent, actual LSATs (aka Preptests) are administered and thoroughly reviewed along with any older exams that our predictive model deems most relevant.
