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.
By cutting out all of the unnecessary and wasteful “middlemen,” ScoreItUp is able to guarantee that its founder and owner, Mark Sacks, will teach all course lessons (both live and online), and can offer all of the following at very reasonable prices:
- The 120-hour Full Length “180” live course, offering significantly more combined live lesson hours (92) and proctored mock exams (7) – and a much better price ($1249)* – than ScoreItUp’s competitors.
- The 100-hour Full Length “plus” live course, which also offers more combined live lesson hours (76) and proctored mock exams (6) – and a much better price ($1149)* – than ScoreItUp’s competitors.
- The 80-hour Full Length live course, offering more live lesson hours (60) and mock exams (5) – and a much better price ($1049)* – than comparable courses offered by ScoreItUp’s competitors.
- Note that ScoreItUp’s live LSAT Prep courses do NOT attempt to sneak in “online” hours as part of the total number of course hours offered, as some companies do – all lesson hours are LIVE lessons in a classroom setting.
ONLINE and ‘HYBRID’ Courses
- The full-length, 24/7 online video course, offering 22 full lessons that include over 275 “mini-lessons” and detailed analysis of over 400 real LSAT questions ($499-$749, depending upon the number of LSAT “cycles” a student wants). See Course Information for more details about ScoreItUp’s 24/7 online video course.
- The option of adding personal tutoring with Mark Sacks (in-person or telephonic) to the 24/7 online video course at discounted rates.
- “Hybrid” courses, combining a live ScoreItUp course with the 24/7 online video course. Adding the online video course as a supplement allows students (1) to watch “core” lessons (and many of the “workshop” lessons) on video, in case they miss any lessons, and (2) to reinforce and review live lessons by watching them again on video, which often can be quite helpful. Students can add ScoreItUp’s 24/7 online video course as a supplement to their live course for only $199 as part of a package deal.
All of the above courses are extremely thorough, complete and detailed. All of the key techniques and strategies for mastering the LSAT are carefully explained in each of the live and online courses, and every single lesson and lesson plan is guaranteed to be taught by ScoreItUp’s owner and founder, Mark Sacks.
In addition, during lessons, homework assignments and “mock” LSAT exams, students will have extensive opportunities to apply the concepts being taught to real LSAT questions taken exclusively from official, previously administered LSAT exams. The course lessons address and explain the various question types and analyze an extensive amount of real LSAT questions in class. Students are assured that everything from the basics to the most challenging questions and concepts on the LSAT are thoroughly analyzed in all three courses.
Students also will have full access to ScoreItUp’s confidential and proprietary online database, including detailed outlines, quizzes, and its extensive step-by-step answers and explanations to official LSAT exams.
Regardless of which course one chooses, ScoreItUp’s students will be treated to a rigorous, challenging and very dynamic LSAT Prep course that has led to very dramatic LSAT score improvements for its students!
* ScoreItUp’s prices are “all-inclusive” (NO hidden costs). See Course Information for more details about ScoreItUp’s prices and the basic components of each of these courses.
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 instructional 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 “assumptions” questions are analyzed and thoroughly explained by Mark in detail.
In addition, a very 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.
The basic fundamental lessons taught by Mark also are devoted to explaining the proven and tested methods used by ScoreItUp 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 and effectively understand complex reading comprehension passages, and answer questions pertaining to those passages 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. However, 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 six Mock Exams in ScoreItUp’s full-length “180” courses (five in the full-length “plus” course, and four in the full-length course). 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.
