Wow! A lot of content. It took me a couple of weeks to go thru all the lessons but after that time, I feel much more confident about the LSIT and I'm ready for my test next month.

Not being the best student over the past couple of years, I was feeling pretty nervous about my upcoming exam. I watched the videos (good quality) and took the quizzes a few times to help memorize some of the concepts. They worked well.
