    A nice alternative to this would be to donate them to prospective Law student. :)

    Hahaha. I also took a course which I paid a grand for, only if I found 7sage just a bit sooner.

    I think we've all had fantasies about burning our books once the LSAT is done. Stupid test is turning us all into pyromaniacs!

    Good thing we won't want to burn anything from this course! Instead we're refer it to everyone we know that is thinking about law school!

    while i do feel the sentiment I strongly discourage any such fires due to the toxicity of the smoke that will enter your lungs ;-)

    I would keep the books. Some of the become collector's items. Some of them are difficult to find and can be worth a lot of money. The original print LSAT test 39 is worth over $500 and is very hard to find. I would keep them as a collector's item. I have the originals from the first print. Like test 42,43. 41,40, and 39. They are in the originals and worth a lot.

    Didn't all those environmental passages and stimuli make you more environmentally conscious? Shame on you! ;)

    I plan on donating mine to the library after all this is done. When I first started, that was the first resource I hit, and there was absolutely nothing available. Maybe someone else will benefit.

    Keep them. Or you can sell them. Or show your kids how hard you studied and perhaps give them your prep books to continue your glorious JD dynasty, if they desire to become lawyers

    Or maybe find a student, maybe someone who has encountered obstacles, and make it a gift to them and include a note of encouragement.

    That's what I did with all my old textbooks and AP/SAT material from high school.
    We have a mini-bookstore-like place attached to the library in my area. People can donate books that the library sells there for 50 cents to a dollar, or sometimes gives away for free. They use the proceeds for library projects, new book purchases, etc. I plan to do the same with my LSAT material after I'm done.

    @"Habeas Porpoise" @xadrianas6x Are y'all donating them with all your markings in the books? I have my notes and circled answers in the books. I wasn't sure if someone would appreciate material that is used- but I suppose it's better than nothing?

    Most of mine are light pencil marks. I made a lot of copies to practice on of the example problems. So, my books are fairly clean.

    @clarkerm, same as @xadrianas6x, I usually always write in pencil in my books, and tend to practice quizzes/problem sets on separate paper (so that I can re-do them again in the future).

    The person reading after me can choose whether to keep or erase the information, though I'll sometimes go through and erase answers from practice questions beforehand if I wrote anything.

    @"Habeas Porpoise" @xadrianas6x Thanks! I'll have to see which books are salvageable.

    Great idea! My library didn't have anything, either––just a few books. And I read the online reviews for those prep books––they were really, really bad.
