All or as many of the previously administered LSAT's you can afford, especially including the recent ones from the last several years if you haven't already.

Powerscore has an RC bible too, plus I like the LSAC produced LSAT SuperPrep book.  The explanations for the 3 included tests are excellent.

I also like Get Prepped LSAT Explained it is a book that gives explanations for every single question from prep test 29-38.

Why, mine, of course.   :)

Also all the other books published by the Fine Print Press

Yes, self-serving, but also serious.  Thane's library is high quality stuff.

(I know you were asking about LSAT books, but it's never too early to look to the next level or two.  Seriously.  Just like people often wait too long to prep for the LSAT, people often wait too long to prep for law school, and wait too long to prep for law practice.)

And regardless - good luck.

Jeffort is right.  Buy as many preptests as you can.  The more practice you get for this exam, the better.  Since it tests you on certain logical principles, your recognition and familiarity with those principles is key.  The more you see of them, and the more questions you answer about them, the higher your score will be.  Moreover, taking actual past exams gives you significant insight into how the test-makers write questions.  There are several question types in each section.  Recognizing those question types helps you understand what the test-makers are looking for in terms of an answer.
