They dont use real test questions and their methods contradict each other.I think students should just stay away from Kaplan period.

I joined the pre-law co-ed fraternity (basically a honors club, not something you have to pledge to or do freeky greeky stuff) and we, as a group, studied for the LSAT (usually once a month as a whole group) and at the end of the month we took a practice LSAT. We shared the costs of the books and one of the books we purchased was Kaplan's LSAT 180. I have an average score of 170+ (started out at only 165 but have improved over time) but after trying to study and understand Kaplan's method my score dropped to a 162/161 on the next two tests I took. Everyone in the group had his/her LSAT score either drop or stay the same after using Kaplan's 180 LSAT methods. On one page Kaplan had the exact same type of problem (logical reasoning), except one story was about tanks and the other was about people, and Kaplan had two completely different answers!!! Also, Kaplan had two different reasons for theses answers, and neither reason was logical! I think that Kaplan's LSAT 180 is lacking judgment and would be a better bet if Kaplan would stop being cheap and actually buy REAL LSAT questions from LSAC!
Just curious, how many practice LSATS did most of you guys take prior to taking the LSAT for real?
