Studying for the LSAT / Re: best lsat prep materials
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:45:41 AM »
As a supplement to any test prep book you get I think purchasing LSAC's 10 actual preptests (and then the 10 NEW ones and the ones with comparative reading) is invaluable to true test preparation.
Since they are the closest thing to the actual test you can get your hands on, you can go through them as if you're taking the real test 10 times. The only problem is they do not provide reasons for the right answers, but most of the time I am able to work out where I went wrong and if I cannot I can ask for help (like I did in another topic in this forum, though people seem reluctant to respond).

I noticed the same thing when I was studying for the LSAT. Many of the practice tests would give you the correct answers, but wouldn't actually tell you why that particular conclusion was correct. Very frustrating for questions that are a bit more ambiguous or could logically have multiple correct answers.

McGraw-Hill is typically worried about revenue first, quality second. They probably didn't want to spend the money to obtain the actual LSAT questions.

I dig Chris Farley. Seriously, for anyone visiting this post for the first time, it's much better to be over-prepared for your LSAT than under-prepared. Take a few extra practice tests before you jump in to the real thing. You can't just "erase" a score once you've taken the real test.

On any public forum, people are usually likely to present themselves a few ticks higher/better than they are in real life. I would guess that most people are scoring at least 10 points lower.

Debt is a huge consideration. I realize that may not be of much concern to those of you from wealthy backgrounds, but it can be a killer to those of us who had to foot the full bill of education. I say go for the cheaper in-state option.
