Prep Tests A, B and C

Postby Darmody » Thu Jul 18, 2013 8:44 pm

What is different about them? Why are they labeled A/B/C? I was reading Pithypike's guide and he said to take B in the middle of month 2 and C at the end of month 2 but also emphasized to review them heavily. Are they the best test indicators?

They are from the Official LSAT Superprep book which produced by the LSAT. So although they are not "official tests" they come straight from the horses mouth and are considered to be very helpful.

Can you elaborate more on why it is considered very helpful or more so than the other PTs?

Every question on these PrepTests has an official explanation by the LSAC for why the correct answer is correct and why the incorrect answers are incorrect. The beginning of the booklet also has substantial content and advice about the exam in generally. It is useful because as clever as other resources can be, being able to read exactly how the people who made the exam want you to solve the questions can be useful.

They are not necessarily more or less indicative of performance; they are like any other PrepTest, just with official answers. If anything they might be slightly less indicative since they're kind of old, but it's not that big of a deal.

They are February prep tests from the late 90s

They are just as good as any other old test. LG is hard as hell on one of them, B I believe. They are a few of the older non-disclosed Feb tests. I don't understand why they won't release all of the Feb tests pre-2008. They save them to have a bank of tests for an emergency, but they aren't going to use a 6 year old test with no comparative reading comp question these days anyway. They should release Feb tests on a 5 year delay or something.
