Where you at?

Liz compiled a very comprehensive list of LSAT links, but unfortunately much of it has become a bit dated.  Time for an update.  In the next several weeks I'm going to try and compile a new list of helpful links for LSAT takers.  Most of the stuff in Liz's list will be put into it, but I'd like to open this thread to suggestions about sites, books, etc. that you have found helpful and would like to have shared with other users.


Studying for the LSAT / ****NO SHILL ZONE****

Shill accounts threaten the integrity of this forum by lying to users in hopes of convincing them to purchase their product.  This hurts both students, who have a more difficult time making informed decisions, and companies, whose integrity is called into question if/when an overzealous marketing person gets caught posing as a student.  A lose-lose IMHO.

I also have the job of ensuring that actual students have the ability to share their experiences with other users, so I can't simply ban every user who talks about his/her experience with a specific curriculum/book/DVD/whatever.

I have emailed Andrew asking him to clarify his position on unpaid advertising.  In the meantime, I am left using my better judgment.  So, here are the new laws of the land:

You may...
...make an honest post about your experiences with a product/service/company.
...make a recommendation in response to a question.
...put a link in your signature (Let's not go crazy with the font size, eh?). a company employee/representative, clarify/correct (mis)information about your product/service/company.

You may not...
...use multiple accounts to post about experiences with a product/service/company.
...create an excessive number (or percentage) of posts regarding one particular product/service/company. about a particular product/service/company in unrelated threads.
...make a post that is nothing but an advertisement.

Ads will be deleted.
Shilling will result in a 48-hour ban (permaban for repeat offenders).
Additional shill accounts will be banned permanently.

I will do my best to differentiate between shill accounts and actual testimonials.  That being said, the more actual LSAT-related content you post (i.e. the more you participate by helping users with their questions), the less likely you are to be singled out as a corporate shill.
