Choosing the Best LSAT Prep Courses

Choosing the right LSAT prep course is a crucial decision and the first step in achieving your target LSAT score and gaining admission into the law school of your dreams.

Do NOT rely solely on brand names that you recognize. Make sure you research the instructor’s credentials and LSAT prep teaching experience, the length of access to the course materials, the number of real LSAT questions, the support provided and, last but definitely not least, the cost.

The good news is that Crush the LSAT has researched and reviewed every major LSAT course on the market to help you make an informed decision when it comes to your LSAT prep.

This comparison chart will help you decide which course best fits your needs. Click “See More Rankings” below the chart to access the rest of their rankings as well as to read their full analysis of each LSAT prep course.

How to Register for the LSAT

You can register for the LSAT online, by phone or by email.

Here are the details for each option:

  •  Online

    By far the easiest and fastest way to register for the LSAT is online through your account.

  •  By Phone

    You can also register by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001 Monday-Friday. Hours vary based on the time of year as follows:

    September-February: 8:30am-6:30pm ET
    March-August: 8:30am-4:45pm ET

    According to LSAC, Monday is the busiest day so you can avoid long hold times by calling later in the week.

  •  By Mail

    To receive a paper registration packet and other information, you can email LSAC or call at 215.968.1001 (same hours as listed above).

Withdrawing Your LSAT Registration

If you register for an LSAT but are unable to take the exam for any reason, you may cancel your registration in one of three ways:

  1. Request an LSAT Test Date Change (for a fee of $100) by your LSAT test date change deadline.

  2. Request an LSAT Registration Refund (partial refund of $50 only) by your LSAT’s refund request deadline.

  3. If both of these deadlines have passed, you can withdraw your registration on the LSAT status page of your account. This option is available until 11:59pm ET the night before the LSAT. Please note, however, that if you withdraw your registration you will not receive a refund and you will be required to pay the full registration fee if you register for another LSAT test date.

Reach your target score.

LSATMax has helped thousands of students raise their LSAT score and gain admission into the law school of their dreams.

I scored below a 150 on my first practice LSAT in November 2015. In June 2016 I took the LSAT and scored a 170.
