That's actually literal Kung Fu right there.

That's actually literal Kung Fu right there.

Today, we’re looking at how your full Velocity course membership will help you increase your LSAT score. We’ll talk about what we can do for you, and the things you’ll need to do in order to succeed. You are not going to let those mofos keep you down. We’re here to help with that. Here’s what you should do:

  • Get acquainted with the site. There are six major resources that will teach you what you need to know, and show you how to obtain, retain, and apply that knowledge:
  1. Your Introduction videos. Here, you’ll learn how I envisioned the course working, a general guide to creating your syllabus, doing your homework, and using the video library.
  2. Your Study Plan. This document gives you detailed steps for structuring your homework sessions, so you make the most of your time.
  3. The Theory Videos. These videos tell you all of the theoretical underpinning for the types of questions you’re asked on the LSAT, as well as the Velocity method for dealing with every question type. Here you’ll learn specific, action-oriented tips for learning to read and attack the test the way I do. This is how I got all those perfect scores. This is the good stuff, is what I’m saying.
  4. The Practice Videos. These videos take all of that Theory and put it into… well, Practice. Here you’ll watch the way I use a theoretical system to achieve practical results. These videos are different from the free video explanations specifically in that they tie all the work together in an overarching application of principles—they give you a cohesive view of the test. So delicious!
  5. Your Documents folder. This page contains practice and review materials that affirm the video lessons, add context, and provide you with more opportunities to drive home what you’ve learned.
  6. Answers to any questions you have. There are three good ways (but email will also work, and maybe other forms of communication, though you should know in advance that I do not read smoke signals).
    1. The Forum. Have a question? Share it with your fellow Velociraptors. I’m also always hanging around the Forum, and I answer questions you post here quickly.
    2. Our Messaging system. Have a private (oooh!) message for someone? This is the place to deliver it. If you’d like to ask a question directly of me, this is one good way (I’m majorgeneraldave).
    3. The comments! Every video gives you a chance to comment; you can ask questions, tell us what you think of us, and propose solutions to my foolishness right here.
  • Now that you know the site, start watching videos! Start with the Introduction page, then move to the Theory videos. I think you should watch those in the order presented for each subject, and it makes sense to switch back and forth between subjects daily to keep things fresh.
  • After you’ve watched all the Theory videos, get to work on some practice. At first, open a test book on your desk and do questions along with the practice videos—read the question, then start the video. Repeat this step until you feel some comfort with answering questions (do anywhere from 4 to 16 test sections this way).
  • Then, start working questions on your own. Do them according to your study plan! After you’ve completed a section, or part of a section, use the practice videos to review your own work.
  • Use these tips for dealing with full-length tests. Use a mix of all the methods outlined there.

That’s it, really. The smart, focused, pattern-intelligent plan laid out for you here and throughout our website gives you the means and the methods to change your LSAT position. That’s what Velocity is all about, after all.

Questions? Comments? We all really do listen to you, and we often implement student suggestions. Sock ‘em to me.

Love + kisses,
