If you want to get a bunch of real-life LSAT questions, look no further than the LSAT SuperPrep series. Each one of these books, written and published by the Law School Admissions Counsel, gives you three complete LSAT tests administered in the past, along with explanations, and some other bonus material.
The only problem that comes with this book lies in the explanations.
You can’t argue with the quality of the questions
This section title speaks for itself. There is no better way to prepare yourself for questions you’ll be seeing come test day than by actually doing test questions from actual LSATs. Going through these actual questions will give you insight into what the questions will be structured like, what kinds of things will get thrown your way, and also, hopefully, help you to recognize patterns in the questions and the answers.
If you want an accurate representation of what you’re actually going to see on you exam come test day, look no further than the SuperPrep series.
That’s as far as you’ll get with these books, however
But, if you want to have explanations and tips that will legitimately help you get through the LSAT with a great score, you’ll probably need to look elsewhere.
I know what you’re thinking … “But the LSAC wrote these things. They have to be amazing, right?” Well, apparently that’s not the case. What you gain in quality of questions, you more than lose in quality of explanations. In other words, you’re going to get a detailed explanation for each answer that only points out what you should have seen in each question.
There is no methodology, shortcuts, or anything else. If you ask me, while it’s helpful to know why you missed a particular question, it is much more important to build a series of checks and balances for each question that will help you to eliminate problem answers immediately, and get to the meat of the prompts as quickly and efficiently as possible. For that reason alone, you’ll want to purchase another series, like the PowerScore bibles, or the Magoosh course (this one is by far the most cost effective … but I may be biased.)
