Congradulations! How did you study for the LSAT? Did you study on your own? Prep course? If so, which one?

Thanks! I studied on my own for about 9 months, taking about a 2 month hiatus between my first December take and my final June take. I mainly relied on information online, different prep books, and the LSAC publications for material. I took way more practice tests than necessary, and I could have been better about identifying my specific weaknesses and being more disciplined about my blind review. Best of luck!

Don't know if you still monitor this acc
