Studying for the LSAT / 50 Actual LSATs...has anyone owned/used it?
« on: September 02, 2005, 05:10:16 PM »
So I was googling around and saw that test masters (the non-robin singh flavor) has a book they sell called 50 Actual LSATs.  As I already have 49 of the 50 (couldn't find preptest 17 anywhere) I'm not going to buy it, but I'm still curious about the book.  Are they all 90s or 00s?  Or do they mostly use tests from the 80s, which are presumably cheaper to license from LSAC?

Also, since I've gotten a number of requests I should nip this issue in the bud...I don't have any PDFs of these tests.  I bought them all (except for 1, which my local library had).  It's not as expensive as you might think.  What did I buy, you ask?
-The Official LSAT SuperPrep (February 1996, 1999 & 2000)
-The Official LSAT PrepTest with Explanations [used] (February 1997)
-The Official Lsat Tripleprep [used] (2, 4, & 5)
-The Official Lsat Tripleprep Volume 2 [used] (3, 6, & 7)
-The Official Lsat Tripleprep Volume 3 [used] (8-10)
-10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests (7, 9-16, 18)
-10 More Actual, Official LSAT Preptests (19-28)
-Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT Preptests (29-38)
-Individually from LSAC or other sources: preptests 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 & 46

With shipping it all came to a little over $180.  So, I guess it doesn't come out to be much more than the 50 actual LSATs if you do a little shopping around.  It might even be a little less if you start shopping early, shop more carefully and select the cheapest shipping option.

Below is the info off of the "test masters" website.  Anyone have any details?

50 LSATs - $179.99
Published by Test Masters, this three-volume guide includes every actual previously-administered LSAT PrepTests (50 Tests) released as of July 2005. No other single publication includes every LSAT Exam. If purchased individually each LSAT exam is $8, making this publication worth $400! Some of the LSAT exams are very difficult to find, and are not sold any where else. Also included are the most recent exams (up to June 2005), answer keys, score-conversion tables, and free online grading with computerized feedback. This is a valuable resource for anyone looking to acing the LSAT!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Question about a grouping game......
« on: September 02, 2005, 04:30:21 PM »
If you can find a bookstore that has it, The Official LSAT SuperPrep provides a lengthy explanation to this very logic game on pages 4-11.  In addition, it includes tips & explanations for LR & RC as well as 3 of the previously undisclosed February tests (96, 99, 2000).  There are also explanations for every question from those three tests.  I found it very useful early on in my studies.  If you want to order the book, the best price I found for it was $23.58 (with shipping) at: http://www.booksamillion.com/ncom/books?id=3256927785826&isbn=0942639936

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Doing a 24 preptests in 30 days -- Crazy?
« on: September 02, 2005, 09:02:42 AM »
It doesn't sound crazy, but I'd be careful.  Since the end of July I've completed 26 preptests and I have 23 to do before test day.  I'm not burning out, however I would be if I hadn't altered my strategy.  After the first 10 tests I kept scoring in the exact same range over and over.  I was just benchmarking myself for the next 10 and getting frustrated.  I've since switched to taking a timed test every other day and using the other day to take a test untimed, focussing more thought on the questions and practicing new strategies.  This alternation combined with a goal of implementing 1 or 2 new strategies each week for each section has allowed me to move above the plateau I hit.  Once you're relatively comfortable with the timing, change course and try to really understand the test/testmakers. 

I'm also canabalizing several of the preptests so that my timed tests will have 5 sections, if you did that you might be able to get your weekends off from LSAT prep (and still complete all the tests in one form or another).
