There are many LSAT prep courses out there. So many options, that it can be a truly dizzying experience. Not only do students have corporate classroom courses to look at, but now they have an increasing option of online LSAT courses. This article will examine why online LSAT prep is a good option for many people.
Access. Students can attend a course whenever they want and from anywhere in the world (provided you have an Internet connection). With online LSAT prep courses, you do not have to allocate three hours plus travel time for each classroom session, nor do you have to take a course two nights a week or dedicate an entire weekend to an intensive course. Rather, all you have to do is sit down at your computer whenever you want. If you are a stay-at-home mom, you can take an online course while your baby is napping. If you are a full-time employee, you can study during your lunch break or dedicate some time early in the morning after you wake up or at night before you go to sleep.
Quality. After a 12-year meta-analysis of research, a study by the Department of Education revealed that online learning students generally performed better than those in face-to-face courses. The implications of this study are profound, since, prior to its release, no one had ever believed online LSAT test preparation was substantively superior to the classroom.
Money. Many corporate LSAT classes running over a thousand dollars on average. This is something many students can’t afford or simply don’t want to pay for. Learning the LSAT online can save you hundreds and in some cases over a thousand dollars and still provide top notch instruction from LSAT masters. In effect, you get the same instruction and can save a thousand dollars.
Time. People have busy schedules and a lot of homework. Some of those people have part-time jobs. People who are out of school work full-time jobs and often have families and other activities. Our hectic daily schedules often do not allow us to take on more commitment. Therefore, when faced with studying for the LSAT, it is difficult to envision having to set aside several hours per week to attend a class and often labor through other people’s questions and an instructor’s stories and jokes.
Choosing the right LSAT prep course is never easy, but by weighing the above factors, you can determine if taking your LSAT course online is for you.
