For quick reference, here are links to related books we have reviewed:
We have reviewed books related to the following subjects:
We strongly advise all prospective law school applicants to consult at least two books before taking the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test).
First, we recommend one of the official guides published by the LSAC (Law School Admission Council), the test’s author. These have sufficient quantity of the official LSAT material from the people who write the actual test. There is a difference between the official questions you will be asked on the exam and the practice questions contained in all other books that aren’t licensed to use official material.
Secondly, we recommend one of several “unofficial” guides to the LSAT. There are indeed ways to study for this test and to materially improve your score, and these books can help you master them. The better unofficial guides lay out many time-proven test-taking strategies, and provide clear explanations for the reasoning behind the correct answers to the practice problems.
You will greatly increase your chances of receiving a higher LSAT score if you go to the test armed with LSAT test-taking strategies (as given by one of the unofficial test guides) and are familiar with actual questions from previous exams (as laid out by the LSAT book).
