The early word is officially in. Firstly, the free LSAT prep material from Khan Academy has proven popular with law school applicants. Furthermore, usage is particularly strong among African Americans and women. In fact, economically disadvantaged students are most heavily using Khan Academy.
All of these usage statistics are through November. However, we have little doubt the usage trends have continued to the present. Based on the feedback we have received so far, the Khan Academy material is very effective. As a result, we are recommending applicants at least give Khan a try.
Certainly, a for-profit prep course or tutor may ultimately benefit some LSAT test takers. Nonetheless, we believe Khan Academy is a great starting point and can help every test taker. Even if it’s simply by augmenting the number of available practice questions.
