Studying for the LSAT / Best Books for LSAT Studying...
« on: November 01, 2005, 07:33:39 PM »
After spending the summer agonizing about the LSAT (but not studying), I received a 156 from the October test date. (Unfortunately, I have a tendency to procrastinate, so I waited til the week before to finally look at a practice LSAT test - I never actually completed one)

So, 2 questions. How many of you actually felt you benefitted from LSAT studying? My friend took the Testmasters course and ended up not doing so well. On the other hand, I've heard from others that books, courses, etc. are absolutely essential.

Next question - what are the best books? I purchased Barron's "How to Prepare for the LSAT" and LSAC's "Next 10, Official LSAT PrepTests" but that's it. I have the most issues with the logic games (I'm sure this is pretty common). I missed 9 on this section (I ran out of time - I think I had 1 full problem plus 2 questions from the previous problem left). Are there any books which specifically address the logic games?

Any help would be much appreciated :)

I was planning to send in my apps late Nov/early Dec, with a mention on the app that I'll be retaking the LSAT in December... we can do this, right? Or is it better to wait until we have the score back from the December LSAT and then submit?

I got a 156 in October, so not so great. I think I'll be happy with anything above a 160.

I also didn't do so well on the LSAT in October (156) and the two schools I want to get into are either Loyola or Southwestern! I'm really stressing about December LSAT though - it's the Saturday before my finals (I have 5), besides the fact that I'm working 30-40 hrs per week. I have about a 3.4 GPA, so that coupled with the 156 is making me cringe.  I'm graduating early with a double major and 3 yrs experience working in a law office, but I'm not sure how "special" that makes me.

Should I then definitely take the December LSAT and hope for the best?
