WRITING AN LSAT BOOK

Postby LSATWIZ » Thu Jan 13, 2011 7:43 pm

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has experience composing an LSAT book or using games and question types from different exams, and compiling them into a book?

How much can I expect this to run me?

Depends on how many questions you want to include, as well as which exams they're from.

There's also the number of pages, quality of the paper, black/white vs. color, etc.

If you're talking about licensing released questions, it's very expensive--the newer (more relevant) tests are considerably more expensive, but none of them come cheap if you are looking to mass distribute and there is little room for negotiation.

Not mass distribute. We do tutoring, but are looking to get into courses in specific cities and while you can have a student buy prep tests 50-60, and flip to relevant games, a course needs a better structure. I suppose we can just buy 10 tests, and tear them apart how we like but it would be much easier and more effective if we could use parts of every test.

What is that company that allows you to download tests, and has books of assumption questions called again?

If you are serious about trying to create an LSAT prep book and curriculum for LSAT prep classes, your licensing questions should be directed to LSAC. You send ONE email to them asking about becoming licensed to reproduce LSAT questions. They email you back the licensing parameters/costs/procedures/paperwork/etc.

Why are you asking people on an LSAT prep discussion board how to license LSAT questions in order to create a prep course? That doesn't indicate that you are knowledgeable enough to be teaching and dispensing helpful information to people preparing to take the test.
