New 10 LSAT book

Postby vamos » Tue Mar 22, 2011 10:07 pm

This might be old news, but I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.

I was browsing the LSAC website and saw that a new 10 LSAT book containing PTs 52-61 has been released. 10 new LSAT preptests for $23.95! :D

Sweet! LSAC stuck to their word. Several years ago they said they were waiting to release another '10 book' until they had 10 administered disclosed tests with comparative reading RC passages to put in it and that is what they did.

Apparently it was just released and listed on the LSAC web page. It is not listed on Amazon yet. Hopefully they have actually printed them and have them ready to ship already, because sometimes they have listed the most recent PrepTest available for sale to start taking orders before they've been printed and ready to ship.

If you order now you can claim that you got a 1st edition 1st printing run copy!

Whatever happened to the 40s. I guess if we want them we have to buy them separately.

We're trying to forget about the '40s (because of the sudden onset of brutal scales and the fluctuation between some super easy game sections then back to harder ones), just like some people are still trying to forget about the '70s because of the odd fashions and music that also occurred for reasons nobody can explain.

If you are going to have time and motivation to work them all, get them all and do it. They are useful. It was during the mid 40's that the scales started to go a little haywire (like the -8 for 170 scale) and caused mass panic for a while with people thinking there would never be a -12 or -14 scale ever again and people were even wondering if -10 was going the way of the dinosaurs. It was just a slightly odd era with sudden big shifts and changes people didn't see coming, like what happened in the 1970's. That doesn't mean there is nothing to learn from it though.

This is definitely a good deal and I was just about to buy each preptest separately which would of cost me at least 4x the price. Lucky me :D

No offense taken. When you stay in the LSAT prep biz for a long time certain trivial things become exciting for nostalgia, especially when they involve mistakes LSAC made that slipped by for a while.

I still have an old version of one of the '10 books' that contains an LR question which was removed from scoring/reproductions of the PT after scores were released and it had originally been disclosed as a PrepTest because the question was determined to be flawed at some point after score release for the administration. The later copies of that PT in LSAC publications just say "Item removed from scoring" in its place in the section and an * in place of TCR in the answer key plus a footnote, but my copy has the full text of the question and its at administration time TCR letter choice included in the answer key with it factored into the scoring scale!

Also, my copy of the first edition of SuperPrep has some errors that were fixed in later printings of it.

But yeah, makes me super LSAT nerdy. :oops:

Hah! Nice reference.

Yeah, something like that except I don't think LSAC mistakes that made it into circulation will ever have the same collector value as that famous sheet of stamps.

Does this mean we shouldn't buy this new 10 LSAT book because since it's the first copies it'll have some errors?

I purchased this from LSAC on 27 March, it shipped on 28 March and arrived today. I can't speak to typos in the first edition but can say that they redesigned the cover with a snazzy new look that I consider a substantial departure from the rest of the series (for those of you who get excited about such things).
