You all asked for it, and now they're finally here! Huzzah!
Take LSAT notes, logic notes, lesson notes, love notes, really any type of note that starts with "L"! You might be able to take notes that start with other letters too. We haven't tested that yet. You can access the notes editor by clicking on the "Take Notes" button at the bottom of each lesson. You can also see all the notes you have written by going to Course --> Notes in the menu. There's more!
We're happy to announce that we are adding more content to our LSAT Complete and LSAT Premium courses! Now, you will be able to download problems sets (as PDFs) straight from the course. These problem sets draw questions from LSAT PrepTests 20-35 (October 1996-October 2001). We've resorted and reorganized them according to category and type to help you recognize the patterns that recur across LSAT questions. That's key to getting a higher score!
You probably noticed that we revamped our commenting system. Now you can login to comment using Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Disqus. It takes just a few seconds. This new system lets you discuss blog posts and lessons almost in real time, and has a ton of handy features like subscribing by email, social integration, and up/down voting of comments. Most importantly, it is fast and easy.
So you might be thinking, "Okay cool, discussions on 7Sage are easy now. What does that have to do with improving my LSAT score?" Well, getting our students better LSAT scores was the exact motivation behind the new commenting system...
We are excited to announce the winners of the LSAT Discussion Competition for July!
The winners are:
- Gold Medal: Amanda Weingarten ($50 Amazon gift certificate)
- Silver Medal: Dami Animashaun ($20 Amazon gift certificate)
- Bronze Medal: Monsura Sirajee ($10 Amazon gift certificate)
- Bronze Medal: Mayha Ghouri ($10 Amazon gift certificate)
- Bronze Medal: Justin Giles ($10 Amazon gift certificate)
We had gold, silver, and bronze medals made for the winners. They looked just like the picture above, but they were stolen by London to use in their "Olympic Games". I heard there isn't even a Logic Games event. Lame.
Congratulations to our winners! Don't forget to add to the discussion as you go through the course - learn by talking it out. Ask questions if you don't understand something. Answer questions and demonstrate your understanding. Remember what Aristotle said:
Teaching is the highest form of understanding.
If you are logged into 7Sage, even with the free trial, you can comment using your 7Sage account. You no longer need to login to our commenting system separately!
Didn't win this time? Get ready for round 2! Make the most (non-spam) comments in August and win an Amazon gift certificate. Be a winner.
At 7Sage, we run an online LSAT video course. It's not like an in person class - Students love that they can watch lessons over and over again. With our course, you can stick with each concept until you master it.
One concern students have is about interactivity. With an in-person course, you can (sometimes) ask your instructor questions. People worry that if they sign up for our course, and don't understand, they have nowhere to turn.
But actually, our LSAT course is really interactive! Beneath each lesson, there are comment boards. You can post a question, and other students will answer it. You can answer other people's questions too. Teaching others is actually the best way to learn the LSAT.
We instructors monitor the boards too. So if no one answers the question, we jump in.
Requesting A Video Explanation
Sometimes, a comment isn't enough. If you need clarification on a tough question, you can post a request for a video. We'll make one just for you. Here's how.
Suppose you had a problem with Question 14, from PrepTest 33 (December 2000), Section 3. It's the second question in the "Argument Part Problem Set 1". This picture shows you how to get help, or you can read the guidelines below.
How To Ask For Help With An LSAT Question
1. Go to the Argument Part Questions Problem Set 1 Answers page in the course.
2. Post a comment along the lines of: "Request for video explanation for Question 14, from PrepTest 33 (December 2000), Section 3."
3. In the comment, say what you want explained.
4. Go make coffee, and come back to find an awesome video explanation! Well, not really - it'll take a day or so. But you should still go make a coffee - it's delicious!
