Studying for the LSAT on your own without taking a class

I will be registering to take the October LSAT, but will be out of the country until October 1st. What is the best study plan for me? Will I be greatly disadvantaged by not taking a class?

A.

Logic Games Bible + Logical Reasoning Bible + as many old, official LSATs as you can take (I recommend 3 per week) + timed conditions + 2-3 months + no cheating

I agree with A, but I also like Nova's Master the LSAT.  Make sure you review your practice tests.

I studied on my own. I just read a Kaplan book and a Princeton Review book and took about 30 old LSAT tests timed. I only studied for two weeks and got a 170 on the real thing. You'll be fine if you put the work in.

Don't worry.  A review course is just moral support - all the actual work you'll be doing in a course is just like the work you put in under independent study.  Everything you realize and learn about the test will come with practice; it doesn't have much to do with outside instruction.
