I took Blueprint in Davis for the October 2015 LSAT. Kyran was an amazing instructor. Her lessens were clear, she answered any questions we had, and she was always quick to get back to us if we needed any additional help. Kyran's fantastic instruction combined with Blueprint's excellent curriculum were the keys to my LSAT success. I don't think I could have done it without Kyran and Blueprint. Take an LSAT class! and make sure it's Blueprint!

I took the Spring 2016 Blueprint Prep Course with Kyran and took the exam in June. The Blueprint material as well as online platform is extremely accessible, helpful, and clear. It was truly a fun experience taking the course, which made it a lot easier to study for the test.
The material, classes, and online site:
Classes for me were on Davis campus, which was awesome because I am a student so I spend most of my time on campus anyways. My class was smaller, but this allowed for better interaction with the teacher and also allowed me to bond with classmates and create friendships with likeminded individuals. The hard copy books are great. They are so organized, clear, and succinct in their respective lessons and also toss in a good amount of humor which helps students have a little bit of a better time studying the difficult material. They take you through each question type quickly but cover the material thoroughly and in a manner which helps students successfully remember all of the information. Online site is equally great. There are video, pdf, and subtitled explanations for each question, along with explanations for each answer. They tell you why an answer is correct, and why another answer is incorrect. I found that understanding why an answer is incorrect is equally, if not more important, than knowing why one is correct, and blueprint is very effective in assisting in that area. There are online lessons, practice sets, practice exams, and of course the homework, all readily available online along with on an app for phones. So accommodating and helpful. Very long story short: Amazing material. Amazing class.
Kyran is awesome. I would highly recommend taking a class with her if you are in the Davis area. She truly dedicates so much of her time to her students and genuinely cares about whether or not they understand the material. Her concern for her students extends well beyond the classroom and she is extremely responsive to any questions that her students have as well as generous with her time and effort. In class she makes sure to get to know each of her students and creates a fun atmosphere through her witty, somewhat dry (sorry Kyran), but always well intentioned sense of humor. I genuinely looked forward to class and she made the material easy to understand and fun to learn. I will say, however, that her sense of humor is not for the weak at heart. All good fun, but she will not hesitate to engage in a debate with anyone who presents one. Kyran really does a great job juggling teaching difficult material in a timely manner along with ensuring her students are doing okay and are understanding the material. She knows her stuff, and is a wonderful teacher and individual.
Cons: As the online site was fairly new when I was taking the course, there were a few glitches. But they were promptly addressed and fixed. Also, all of the homework is online which was somewhat tiring on the eyes (especially for the long and tedious reading comp sections). But at the end of the day, that's all personal preference.
Long story short: If I could take Blueprint over again, I would in a heartbeat. It is engaging, fun, and effective. My score increased 17 points by my last practice exam and I felt confident heading into the test.
Thanks Blueprint and thanks Kyran!

I took a Blueprint LSAT prep course with Kryan McCann in advance of the June 2015 LSAT test. The class transformed my approach to the LSAT and helped me score in the high 170s. I strongly recommend taking a class with Kyran if she's still teaching. Regardless, the Blueprint method is stellar, and I recommend it to all my friends who are studying for the LSAT. The course is not cheap, but it's an investment that will pay off big time. Look around online for discount codes-- they can knock off a few hundred bucks off the price.

The Blueprint LSAT course is nothing but exceptional. Studying for the LSAT is a difficult and frustrating endeavor, but Blueprint makes it as painless as possible by incorporating humor into their lesson plans. The course is structured in a way that enables you to succeed. The weekly homework helps you hammer home the key concepts for the various sections and question types, and there's online explanations to every question that can prove invaluable for understanding what makes the right answer right and the wrong answers wrong. Their teaching on the games section is flawless. I went from getting 10-13 correct answers on games to ultimately only missing one question on the real test. Aaron was the instructor I had and he's awesome. He makes it abundantly clear that he's concerned about your improvement and will regularly check in to see how your studying is going. He's always there for you to answer questions and his advice can prove invaluable. If you're seriously considering taking a prep course, do not waste your money by going somewhere else. Choose Blueprint. You won't regret it.

I took the Blueprint online course to help me prepare for the February exam, and it was the best decision I could've possibly made. After taking the LSAT once in October and receiving an abysmal score, I was extremely discouraged. I knew I would have to take it again, which sounded like an absolute nightmare. Thankfully, I discovered Blueprint and it changed everything; my score increased by 12 points! I can't imagine studying for this brutal exam any other way. Thank goodness for Blueprint!
