  1. Wow, just amazing test prep tips. I am surely going to follow these. I will take LSAT in this summer and I personally like self-paced study as I think that one can learn perfectly with individualized study. But recently I have subscribed to one of the LSAT Prep courses so that can get help at some difficult parts such as logic games.
