The LSAT is one of the most difficult graduate exams to crack. Preparing for the LSAT can be a nightmare without the proper books and course materials. We look at some of the LSAT prep books and tell you which ones are worth your time (and money):
- The Official LSAT PrepTest 51: The Official LSAT PrepTest is the veritable bible of LSAT prep books, one that every to-be law student must have in his armory.
Published by the Law School Admission Council, the LSAT Prep Test book contains actual former LSAT papers that appeared in previous years. Practicing these can give you a great and thorough understanding of the LSAT and how to crack it. Along with the tests, this book also contains some very nice tips and techniques that the Law School Admission Council itself recommends.
A must have for any law student.
- The Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTest (LSAT Series): A great many LSAT prep books choose to use their own questions rather than pay the licensing fee to the Law School Admission Council for the original, actual LSAT papers from previous years. The Next 10, Actual, Official LSAT Prep Tests, however, does not fall into this category; all the tests are actual LSAT papers that appeared in previous years, giving you a thorough, firm understanding of the exam and its requirements.
A great many LSAT coaches themselves recommend and use this book, and it is one of the largest selling LSAT prep books on the market. If you are serious about cracking the LSAT, this is one book we highly recommend.
- The PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible: Authored by David Killoran, the PowerScore Logic Games bible has quickly become the de-facto book of choice for those looking to crack the logic games section of the LSAT.
Thorough and highly detailed, this 400 page tome will guide you step-by-step through what many consider the most difficult section of the LSAT: the logic games. Complete with tests, examples, and lessons, this book is an automatic purchase for serious LSAT takers.
- The PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible: Another bestseller by author David Killoran, the PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible guides you through an advanced system to tackle and attack any logical reasoning questions you might encounter in the LSAT. Together with the PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible, this book will prepare you completely to tackle the reasoning and the logic section of the LSAT.
Most law students swear by this book, and it is another automatic choice in the LSAT taker’s armory. Highly recommended.
For most students, these four books should be enough for a thorough LSAT prep. There are many other popular books, including those from Kaplan, and other major publishers, but these four have enough material to keep you busy for months.
