What prep material should I buy for $200?

Postby Palavra » Sat Apr 23, 2011 10:18 pm

If you were to buy LSAT prep material for $200, what would you buy? I think I'll buy the RC, LG and LR Bibles. That leaves me with about $100.

Also, is it possible to buy all the practice tests together or do I have to buy each separately? I'm sorry if these are stupid questions but I'm new to this.

Thanks!

I would buy the LG and LR Bibles. Used copies of all 3 Actual, Official LSAT books. LSAT SuperPrep. Spend the remaining money on more recent PTs.

This is pretty much what I actually used to prep, only I wasn't smart enough to buy LSAT SuperPrep. I didn't use a book on RC strategy. I learned how to do RC just fine by reviewing my exams.

I recommend buying the complete prep bundle from cambridgelsat.com . They divide PT 1-40 into question types and the last 23 or so are left as complete tests. The question types correspond very well to Powerscore's division so it's one of the best supplements you can get to the bibles

You can probably skip the RC bible. But LG and LR bibles are recommended, and superprep. Then, as many practice tests as you can get. Those are probably the most important thing, imo, especially the newer ones.

+1

This is exactly what I was going to write.

Also, keep in mind that LSAC just released a 10 pack of the newer tests that is available on their website, but not yet available at some of the other online retailers - that could save you a few dollars.

I prefer the other bundle that has their "Questions divided by type" books. It costs 50 more, but it's the most convenient way to get practice questions divided by type.

Do they divide the questions the same way as the Bibles?

It's more or less the same with small differences. There's a thread that describes how to corellate them.

It will be a pain to print all the material.
