Kaplan LSAT Book - what does everyone think of it?
« on: April 22, 2004, 11:28:02 AM »


Hey all,

        I've got the 2003 edition of the Kaplan LSAT Book (I don't think it has any special title, really).

        I've just started to use it these past few days........ what does everyone think of this thing???


Regards,

I did not find Kaplan or PR to be at all helpful.  I do think very highly of the NOVA book.  thats the only book ive seen so far that has given me real insite into the types of mistakes i make on LR/RC questions.

for games i would use the LG Bible.

Hi,

I didn't like it much either.  It was good to see their description of the types of questions, but overall, a bit confusing and not helpful to increase your score.  I would look for other materials instead.

Good luck

i think the PR book is actually the worst.  just the annoying lingo...

"Here is how you crack it"

as if by reading their book you will be able to methodically crack each LSAT question one-by-one with the secret tips they give you.  kaplan isnt a whole lot better either.

try the Nova book.

Another thing that is helpful - is the LSAT palm pilot thing (if you have a palm).  Then you can do questions pretty much anywhere when you are bored just for extra practice.  I think it is by Kaplain, but it is the only product out there like it that I could find.

I haven't seen any Palm software for the LSAT.  Does anyone know where to find it?  I checked Kaplan and couldn't find it there.

I started out with the Kaplan book with the CD in the back and mainly concentrated on it just for the practice tests and to find out basic info like what the test structure is, etc.  It was a good place to start, but what REALLY, REALLY helped me was borrowing a friend's copies of all the past LSATs that she bought from LSAC.  I spent a lot more time practicing taking the tests than actually reading advice about how to do them.

Kaplan's book is better than Arco's but worse than Princeton Review's.
