What about LSAT preptest 66?

Bump for February 2013

From How Early Should I Start Preparing For The LSAT?:

I'd recommend starting your LSAT prep about 5-6 months before you plan on taking the exam.

About 6 months before test day, you should take a timed, practice LSAT preptest in order to get a baseline score that you will spend the next 6 months working your way up from.

If you start 6 months in advance, you don't need to spend every day on LSAT prep. However, starting this early is an advantage, because even if you only spend a few hours every weekend for the first 3 months, you will have more time to familiarize yourself with the LSAT. A big part of mastering the LSAT is simply becoming familiar and comfortable with the material.(more...)

***Bump for October 2011***

If you aren't prepared, don't take the LSAT. Even a modest 5 point improvement in your score (eg 156 to 161) is huge in the eyes of law school admissions deans. You don't want to end up performing poorly and retaking the exam in a year anyway because you didn't get into the school that you wanted to get into.

The LSAT isn't a test that you can successfully sit for if you haven't adequately prepped.

BUT... I don't understand why you can't take the October or December LSAT. You'd rather risk underperforming in 2 weeks or wait 12 months to go to law school than spending 10 hours (round-trip) traveling? I think that you should consider reassessing those priorities.

On the other hand, taking a year off isn't a bad thing as long as you do something productive. If you can get a low-level job at a law firm or (w/ an econ background) a financial institution (esp. IBank, VC/PE/HF) or w/ the Fed, Treasury, IRS, etc. The experience will look good on apps and give you some real-world experience to draw from when/if you do attend law school.

No problem. The game type appendix can be a really powerful tool to improve each game type if you know how to use it. I posted some tips on how to drill LG using the LGB appendix on OLS a while ago in this 30 day LSAT study guide that you might find helpful:

The Logic Games Bible has an appendix that breaks down each preptest by game type.

If you don't have access to the LGB, I'd highly suggest buying it... but if are looking for a list of a specific game type (eg. basic linear/advanced linear/grouping), you can also try asking for the list by posting your question here: Ask:
