A Super-Charged LSAT Self-Prep Program from BARRON'S Author Jay Cutts

What's Included in STEPS?

1. Student Study Manual

The Student Study Manual contains day-by-day instructions on what to do, for a two month period. It includes: doing timed sections, diagnostics, using the advanced strategies on the online forum. Its main purpose is to provide a highly structured daily approach that students studying independently often lack. Delivered as a printable electronic file.

STEPS is based on the Barron's LSAT Prep Book, capturing the advanced insights that Jay Cutts has developed in over 24 years of working with thousands of prelaw students. (Book purchased separately.)

2. Audio Library

The most powerful tool in STEPS! Close to 300 tutorials on actual LSAT questions. Audio recordings of one-on-one tutorials on actual LSAT questions conducted by Jay Cutts with prelaw students. Provides in-depth analysis of common errors and teaches problem-solving strategies. These recordings give you the benefit of one-on-one coaching with one of the top LSATexperts without the cost or personal coaching.

Main Points

3. Solution of the Week

A weekly email that includes a detailed explanation of how to solve an actual LSAT question. Solutions reinforce the strategies taught in the Barron's book.

4. Buddy System

Opt-in system that pairs two people, in the same location if possible. Each is responsible for making sure the other is keeping up with their studying. The rationale for the Buddy System is that you are likely to be more conscientious when you are responsible for helping someone else succeed.

5. Booklet - How to Get Accepted to Law School

Our comprehensive, free booklet on the admissions process and writing an effective personal statement, based on Jay Cutts' 24+ years of coaching students on admissions.

6. Access to Advanced Help

Students have access to a network of experienced LSAT tutors who can be hired at a moderate hourly rate through a major national test prep tutoring agency. Students who feel that they need additional personal attention can work with a tutor of their choice for individualized help.

STEPS does not receive any money from tutors. You make your own arrangements with them

7. Optional On-Campus or Local LSAT Class with Proctor's Manual

Students or advisors on a campus can use the Proctor's Manual to organize their own classroom-based LSAT class from 3 to 8 weeks or longer. The program is run by the students themselves or by a proctor assigned by a prelaw advisor. The proctor need not be an LSAT instructor. The Proctor's Manual provides full instructions for organizing each classroom session, including running diagnostic tests, strategy review and practice, timing review, and peer tutoring. The Manual is delivered as a printable electronic file.

The Proctor's Manual can also be used by students off campus who are in the same location and want to form a self-organized classroom prep program.

8. Online Dashboard, Forum, and Progress Report System

The online forum allows students locally and around the country to chat, interact, ask questions, and help each other. The online reporting system helps you keep track of your progress. School locator helps you find schools where you'll be competitive.

I used STEPS to the LSAT (created by Jay Cutts, author of the Barron's LSAT Prep Book) to organize a live LSAT program for my students. They found it easy to work with, easy to follow, and insightful. I feel STEPS is a unique and affordable option.
