Okay guys I'm writing my LSAT in December and I`ve been studying like crazy but im not getting the marks that i want (Average 145-150. I use Kaplan books, i have practice tests and I'm actually planning to get a one on one tutor to help me.

Do you guys have any suggestions as to how i should study or what books i should use?

Examples: Amount you study? How you study? Books? Courses? Strategies?

Thanks alot you guys and good luck with law school

Define/clarify how you are studying and then it may be easier to help refine your habits

Everything they said, and also:  understand the questions.  The LSAT repeats questions constantly, just in different guises, and if you truly understand the questions you will easily spot the repeaters.  Don't worry about timing yourself for now.  Instead take your time and really work through the problems in depth, far more than just picking the answer.  Work through each wrong answer and identify why the answer is wrong and why the test thought you might pick it anyway.  Grok the question.  (sorry)

After that, you can start worrying about the clock again.
