Cost of LSAT PrepTests | Prep Course vs. Self-Study

LSAT Blog Cost PrepTests Self Study CourseThis post is Part 3 of the "Secret PrepTests" series. The series starts with "The Case of the Secret LSAT PrepTests."

In this post, I contrast the costs of LSAT PrepTests depending upon whether you're a prep company or a student. It turns out LSAC charges prep companies less than it charges students, but it gives the companies more exams in return.

See Part 4 (LSAC's PrepTest Licensing Policy) for how I arrive at the figures for what "What LSAT Prep Companies Pay."

See Best LSAT Prep Books for how I arrive at figures for "What Students Pay."

    Pain in your body can give you many restless nights. At the time, it can become unbearable too. You can understand pain as the uncomfortable sensations which happen in your body. It does stem from the activation of the nervous system.
    Most people describe the pain as throbbing, stinging, sore, and pinching. If the person ignores curing, it can lead to much worse results.
