+1 on Pithypike study guide


-1 on Princeton Review and Kaplan

ONLY use books containing real LSAT questions.

EarlCat, everything you just stated is correct.

I'd like to emphasize the importance of taking the LSAT early and of submitting applications early.

Because of rolling admissions, it is ideal for an applicant applying in Fall 2009, for example, to take the LSAT no later than June 2009. This allows the applicant to complete applications well in advance of the date that admissions officers begin to accept applications.

I think Beverly was being sarcastic in response to a previous poster's request for an answer key.

By the way, Earlcat, what happened to your goal calculator? The site isn't there anymore.

It's very similar, but it's not identical.

Here's a parallel scenario:

13 smokers stand outside their office building during a smoking break when it begins to drizzle.

There's a tiny overhang nearby with only enough room for two people. A nonsmoker is waiting under the overhang for a friend when one of the 13 smokers ducks under the overhang for shelter.

The nonsmoker (who has severe asthma) says, "please move." The smoker says, "I'm sorry the smoke bothers you, but if I leave, one of the dozen smokers standing nearby will take my place, and you'll be just as uncomfortable enduring that guy's smoke. I might as well just stay here."

The smoker's practice might be wrong/harmful to someone enduring the smoke, but the argument in the stimulus is that putting a stop to this smoker's behavior will not benefit the nonsmoker because someone else will step up to cause that harm instead.

Thank you for responding. Please do come back and let us know when you find out.

Choice C represents the likelihood that the U.S. might not be the only country responsible for the existence of the pesticide in question. Perhaps another country makes the pesticides as well. If something is grown with another country's pesticides, that thing (fruit, vegetable, etc.) would still hurt consumers in the U.S. just as much.

Make sense now?

Figure out which types of questions give you the most trouble.

If you've already gone through the LRB, but you're still getting 6-10 wrong on each LR section, you need to go through the LRB again. Go through it VERY slowly.

Don't worry about running out of materials. If you include the June 2007 exam (PDF on LSAC's website), and the Official LSAT PrepTest With Explanations (below), there are actually 61 exams available to you:

PrepTests 1-56, numbered = 56
Sample June 2007, not numbered = 1
SuperPrep, lettered (A, B, and C) = 3
Official LSAT PrepTest with explanations, not numbered. = 1

Very few people need (or want) to go through all 61.

LSAC has explained some of these exams. Go through LSAC's explanations in addition to the LRB if you haven't already.

The Official LSAT SuperPrep contains the Feb 1996, Feb 1999 and Feb 2000 exams (previously undisclosed), and it explains every answer choice.

The Official LSAT PrepTest with Explanations contains the stolen Feb 1997 exam with every answer explained.

If you identify certain question-types that give you difficulty, we can give you more advice.
