ScoreItUp realizes that all LSAT Prep students are not identical. Students have different time commitments, instruction needs, financial means and motivation levels. It is for that reason that ScoreItUp seeks to maximize options available for all of its students.*
ScoreItUp eliminates the unnecessary and wasteful “middlemen,” and guarantees that its founder and owner, Mark Sacks, will teach all course lessons (both live and online). No part-time instructors, student instructors, or instructions lacking a law school education and extensive LSAT Prep and University teaching experience are ever used.
Regardless of which course one chooses, ScoreItUp students will be treated to a rigorous, challenging and very dynamic LSAT Prep course that has led to very dramatic LSAT score improvement for its students!

The basic fundamentals of all of ScoreItUp’s courses are taught during the initial “core” lessons. The basic fundamentals are the same in all of ScoreItUp’s live courses and its 24/7 online video course. During these initial “core” lessons, the various test strategies and concepts needed to succeed on the LSAT are explained in detail.
These concepts include, but are not limited to, contrapositives, cause and effect, analogies, parallel reasoning, percentages vs. numbers, formal logic, causation vs. correlation, and resolving the conflict problems. In addition, “weakens,” “strengthens,” “justify the principle,” “flawed reasoning,” and “assumption” questions are analyzed and thoroughly explained by Mark in detail.
A heavy emphasis is placed upon applying these techniques to real LSAT questions. Everything from the basic concepts to the most challenging LSAT question types are thoroughly analyzed during these “core” lessons. A step-by-step set of instructions for successfully attacking each type of LSAT question on the exam is provided and explained in detail. ScoreItUp’s later lessons are devoted to (1) helping students refine their skills and understand LSAT questions with greater depth, (2) applying the key LSAT Prep techniques to an extraordinary number of additional real LSAT questions, and (3) working extensively on timing and efficiency (a key part of LSAT success!).
The basic fundamental lessons taught by Mark also are devoted to explaining the proven and tested methods to (1) prepare useful “setups” and answer the various types of logic games (analytical reasoning) questions, (2) deconstruct and analyze logical reasoning questions, (3) break down, understand and answer complex reading comprehension passages and questions quickly and effectively, and (4) recognize the common tricks and patterns of wrong answers used on the LSAT, and how to spot and eliminate those incorrect answer choices.
All graded sections of the LSAT are covered in detail by Mark during these lessons. Because many students find logic games (analytical reasoning) questions particularly challenging, and because there are approximately twice as many logical reasoning questions as either of the other two sections, extra emphasis is placed on both of these types of questions.
Finally, there are seven (7) Mock Exams in ScoreItUp’s full-length “180” courses. Each mock exam uses real LSAT exams and is given with a live proctor (in the LIVE courses) or taken at home (in the 24/7 ONLINE VIDEO course) under timed conditions designed to simulate the actual LSAT. Detailed explanations of all seven of these mock exams is provided live in class or online.
