Joshua Craven and Evan Jones are proud to introduce The Lawschooli.com Logical Reasoning Course!
Knowing logical reasoning is all-important—half of your score on the LSAT will be determined by how well you can solve logical reasoning questions. To that end, we have built what we guarantee the most in-depth resource available for teaching the logical reasoning section.
Our goal with this course is simple. No shortcuts and half-measures. No oversimplification. The goal is to get you understand logic and problem structure on exactly the same level as the people who are making this test.
If you have taken an LSAT exam already, you’ve probably realized that the LR section is composed of some seriously tricky and dense reasoning puzzles, designed to obfuscate and confuse. It may appear at first as if you are being asked to do a thousand different tasks and that there is no clear way to find the right answer.
Luckily, this initial impenetrability will disappear as we carefully guide you through the LR section. You will get much better than you ever thought possible at solving LR questions. You will learn to describe and analyze the reasoning behind the problems. You will understand what these problems require you to do and execute a clear plan to solve them quickly and accurately.
Let’s get started on your way to achieving true mastery and understanding of logic, and the unparalleled confidence that comes with it.

Frequently Asked Questions
The material in this course is already available for members of the LSAT Mastermind Course – If you are in the mastermind group already you do not need to purchase the LR Course separately.
The LR course is a standalone video and text course designed for people who want to target that specific area of their LSAT study without committing to the full course. If you later decide you want to join the full Mastermind Course (with access to private forums where Josh and Evan answer your questions, online preptest reviews and office hours, full access to schedules, and the complete course for LG and RC as well), we will subtract what you already paid for the LR course.
To get the most out of the course you are going to have to buy some official LSAT preptests (materials that you will need anyway to prep effectively for the LSAT. Part of the reasoning we can provide this course so cheaply is that we aren’t paying LSAC’s high licensing fees for questions. Instead, you buy the tests really cheaply and work through them with our problem explanations. Here are the books you will want to have:
Note however that you can start the course without having the books yet. It should take a least a week to get to the point in the course where we first begin working through problems.
Yes! Whereas a lot of company charge you for 3 months access that you may not even be able to use, we know that life sometimes gets in the way of LSAT prep. We think it’s important that you be able to use the resource as long as necessary until you fully prepared for the LSAT. For this reason your sign-up grants you lifetime access to the LR course.
If you are following the lesson plan rigorously, it will take just a little over a month to complete the course material, quizzes, and do problems and review explanations. Completing your foundational LR study in around this time would be about perfect for someone who is on a 3 month study schedule, allowing you to wrap up in plenty of time to do many simulated LSAT preptests before your test date.
That said, because you can access the course for as long as you want, the course can fit into longer schedules just as easily, and will be there for review should you ever need to retake.
Again, we are 100% confident this course is the best resource from which to learn the LSAT section. Perhaps especially if you have tried and not gotten the results you wanted with another course, you should reboot with our approach. We aim you give you a much better foundation in logic basics, but then we take you into in-depth concepts that other resources simply don’t bother to teach or don’t teach well. We also have more practice quizzes and LR question explanations than anyone else.
Josh and I have years of experience helping people boost their score to heights they didn’t think possible (check out the user reviews on the Mastermind Course). We are certain we can bring your logical reasoning skills to new levels, so don’t hesitate to start fresh with us.
