LSAT Books

LSAT books can help you study

Our LSAT Courses are all you need to study for the LSAT.  But if you don't have access to the Internet (how did you get here??) or just prefer the smell of books, here are our top picks.

The most important books are the official LSATs from the LSAC. We sell many tests with video explanations, but you can find even more past LSATs on amazon.

Some of these tests are quite old. You should use them if you have a decent amount of time to study. If you have less than a month, stick to the more recent tests.

Best LSAT Books

Ten New, Actual, Official LSATs (LSATs 52-61): The most important book from the list. This book is only $19.50, and has ten of the most recent LSATs. You can't get them cheaper anywhere.

The Next Ten Actual Official LSATs (LSATs 29-38): These tests are older, but still quite useful, especially if you have a few months to study. These tests are also quite cheap.

Hacking The LSAT: Explanations For LSATs 29-38: These are full explanations for every question in The Next Ten LSATs. Written by our VP of Curriculum, they're a great resource to figure out exactly why an answer is right or wrong.

LSAT Superprep: This is LSAC's guide to the LSAT. It comes with strategies for each section; the Reading Comprehension guide is short but good. It also has three tests you won't find anywhere else. The best part is that these tests come with full explanations by the LSAC.

They are the ONLY official explanations from the LSAC for any test, so it's useful to see what they're looking for in answer choices. The questions also have difficulty ratings.

Ten More Actual Official LSATs (LSATs 19-28): The LSATs in this book are fairly old. In particular, the logic games are different from those on the  modern LSAT. But these are still useful tests, especially if you think you'll use up all the modern LSATs.

Ten Actual Official LSATs: Old tests from the early 90s. You should be aware this book exists, but only use this if you've got a lot of time to study and will run through all the other tests.

Note: All the official LSAT books come with bubble sheets to mark your answers. You should definitely use these to get the most authentic test experience. Otherwise you're giving yourself extra time.

If you need more bubble sheets, or a timed LSAT proctor, check out our LSAT tools page and our LSAT App

cover-preptest-BI took PrepTest B (the February 1999 LSAT) under simulated testing conditions.  I want to share some of my thoughts with you.  This post will cover Logic Games for which I have already made the videos lessons (with links below).

**Spoiler Alert**

Stop reading if you haven't taken this prep test yet.  It'll ruin the test for you.

LSAT B Logic Game Summaries and Video Explanation Links

Game 1 - Eight boats arrive at a dock.  They are named Jewel, Kashmir, Neptune, Ojibwa, Pacific, Spain, Tornado, and Valhalla.

Game 2 - A park contains at most five of seven kinds of trees.  The trees are firs, laurels, maples, oaks, pines, spruces, and yews.

Game 3 - Four married couples dine at a circular table.  They are named Francisco, Gabrielle, Kyoko, Lee, Olivia, Peter, Raymond, and Simone.

Game 4 - Zeno's unfinished furniture sells five types of furniture.  Footstools, hutches, sideboards, tables, and vanities.  From the five, Irene will buy four.  Each piece Irene buys will be made from a kind of wood: maple, oak, pine, rosewood.

Game 1 - Eight boats arrive at a dock

This is a simple, easy sequencing game.  We've seen very similar reincarnations of this game before.  You should finish this in under 5 minutes if you want to get through all the games in this set.  Your proficiency with the basic sequencing chart will determine how quickly you can push through this game.

Game 2 - A park contains trees

This is a very difficult in/out game.  If you do not normally have enough time to finish all the games, this is the one you should skip.  The rules that make this game hard are the last two rules.  One of them has an embedded conditional.  Both of them demand that you represent them visually to fully understand how they control the pieces on the game board.  Once you do that, you can split the game into three sub-game boards to use up these two confusing rules.

Game 3 - Married couples dine at a circular table

This is a medium difficulty spatial game.  You can think of it as a circular sequencing game.  It's unusual because of the circular game board.  Aside from that, this game is not very difficult.  Hit the questions quick after a brief, simple game board setup.  For many of the questions, you'll have to draw sub-game boards that cater to them.

Game 4 - Zeno's sells furniture

This is a hardish in/out game with grouping within the in group.  Since there's only one item in the out group, you should split the game board up into two sub-game boards to accomodate the two possible items that could be out.  Once you do that, you can focus your attention of grouping the items within the in group.  In the in group, you have to figure out what wood goes with what type of furniture.  If you're not adept with conditional logic, there is a conditional rule that could potentially be confusing.

As the February 2013 LSAT approaches, a blizzard is striking the East coast. The LSAC rarely cancels tests, but this year the storm is severe enough that testing has been suspended at a few test centers.

Odds are, your test center is not affected. Be sure to monitor the official notice of cancellations here:

http://www.lsac.org/jd/announcements-and-news.asp#weather

The LSAT does not appear to have announced what happens if your test is postponed, but from past experience they will contact you to schedule a retake in 1-3 weeks. If that happens to you, continue practicing as usual: timed practice tests are the best way to prepare at this point.

Good luck!

Congratulations to everyone who took down the LSAT last Saturday.  For everyone who has their sights on the February and June LSATs, without further ado, it is time to reveal who won LSAT Premium.

Drum roll...

The winner is... Deep Brar!  Congratulations.  We asked Deep if he had anything he would like to say:

"Wow! Thank you so much for this! I've been trying to study for the LSAT on my own and have been struggling a bit, but now that I have access to all of these amazing resources in the LSAT Premium course I feel like I should have no problem at all :)" - Deep Brar

So many of you accumulated tons of entries by spreading the word that we had four times more entries than the last time we ran this!  That clearly couldn't go unacknowledged, so we decided to award a copy of LSAT Complete to whoever managed to score the most entries.

Now, the award for Most Prolific Propagation goes to Corey Varma.  Congratulations Corey!  Corey also had a few words to share:

"From free Logic Game explanations to awesome pro-tips and everything in between, you guys are the best!" - Corey Varma

 If you didn't win, fear not.  You can still get an LSAT course for less than a third the cost of the other guys.

Ever get that deja vu feeling when you do a Logic Game?  Like you've done a game like that one before?  That's because most Logic Games are very similar to each other.  You can get better by mastering the games one type at a time.

Download our Logic Games Cheatsheet to see how we categorize the Logic Games from LSAT PTs 35-50.
