Learn to Think Like the Test Makers
Testing for the Public's unique strategies emphasize thinking like the test makers in order to quickly recognize the Right Answer. We have analyzed every form of the LSAT, GMAT, and GRE released since 1980.

In 1989, noted trial attorney, Gerry Spence, wrote a book entitled With Justice for None that introduced his readers to "Testing for the Public, a nonprofit educational corporation in San Francisco that offers a test-preparation course for the LSAT intended to aid minorities and the disadvantaged." After reviewing the research and strategies developed by Testing for the Public, Spence asks his readers "What if, indeed, we are witnessing a concerted and systematic scheme that tends to select students who are philosophically compatible with those who devise the test? Is it possible that large numbers of those best suited to be the people's lawyers are never permitted to enter the law-school door?"
In 1992, feminist author Gloria Steinham wrote The Revolution from Within and reviewed the history of the admission tests released since 1980. She noted that "David White, a Harvard Law School graduate in California who coaches candidates in the fine art of surviving the LSATs for entry into law school, says that efforts to make the questions more hospitable to women and people of color sometimes reflect limited thinking in themselves. Having noticed that the word feminism only appeared in wrong answers, for instance, he offered a dollar to any student who found it in a right one -- and he didn't have to pay off until 1989."
