I already have 10 more actual.  I plan on purchasing 10 more actual next week. 

Will I need 10 Actual too?  I'm a cheap Bastard.

i would only reccomend it if you stink at games.  think of it as games 101 and a good way to have a foundation for the tougher more recent games.

One thing I have noticed is that a few of the more recent games are strongly influenced by older flow-chart style (greg is older than sally but younger then frank) games. So doing the old games may help you in that respect.

if time is the issue I would go with all the new ones first...definitely.
If its money, I would just buy it...what's $25 compared to lawschool tuition anyway.

What is it with people!?!  The book is $24, you should buy it even if you think there's only a slight chance it'll raise your score by a single point.  It could be the difference between admission and denial, it could be the difference between a scholarship or a loan.

An independent tutor I was working with required 10 Actual LSAT's. This is the first of the Actual LSATs series.   Obviously the more practice the better, but there are some things to consider.  I found that the logic games in 10 actual were much easier than the games from later years.  I felt very confident doing the games in 10 ACTUAL, but when I hit the later games, I just couldn't get it.

More recent games will give you a better sense of what you'll actually be facing on the LSAT.  I got all three of the released 2003 tests and it helped a lot.

Good luck
