The fee for STEPS does not include any tutoring or coaching with a live person, including by phone, chat, or email. The LSAT is built on specific patterns. The STEPS program teaches these patterns, along with the strategies for dealing with them. The beginning student often finds that there are two answers to a question that seem indistinguishable. In fact, one answer contains a fatal flaw. One of the most important strategies for the LSAT is learning to find that flaw. Timing strategy is critical for a strong score. Completing all the questions in the allotted time is usually NOT the way to get the most points. STEPS teaches and reviews the most effective timing strategy. STEPS includes all of the unique, advanced strategies developed by Jay Cutts over 24 years. An independent, professional Reading Comp specialist described our approach to the RC section as "the most effective approach I've ever read. My score improved after reading it." If/then logic is typically a stumbling block for many students. STEPS teaches an extremely simple three step approach for clearly understanding any if/then argument. The STEPS teaches a highly systematic approach Analytical Reasoning (Games), as most students, when stumped, "stab in the dark." The STEPS approach condenses systematic logical problem-solving into a simple two-pronged strategy. The Logical Reasoning is the heart of the LSAT, comprising two sections. The key to LR is a logical problem-solving tool called the Adversarial Approach, which teaches students how to uncover the strengths and weaknesses of each answer choice quickly and accurately.
