LSAT PrepTests 69, 70, 71 are $10 each on LSAC's website

Postby LSAT Blog » Mon May 20, 2013 5:50 pm

Just a heads-up to anyone preparing for the LSAT on a budget:

LSAC is charging $10 for PrepTests 69 (June 2013), 70 (October 2013), and 71 (December 2013) when purchasing through its website.

In other news, the price of registering for the LSAT has increased to $165 for the June 2013 - February 2014 testing year. Last testing year, it was $160. The year before that, $139.

This is ridiculous. Like they aren't already rolling around in our money already.

I really wish i could order preptest 69 now. I would gladly pay the $10. I would probably even pay it even if they charged $10,000

They can raise it to $500 for all I care. Keeps the number of test takers low.

What are the chances it is available on other sources for cheaper shortly after they release the test? Guess they need to raise the price to account for the drop in test takers.

Good point. How does LSAC determine that? Do dependents matter?

These exams will be available for less on my site here:

Yes, when LSAC raised the test registration fees to $160 from $139 last year, its president wrote that the size of the increase was due to the drop in test takers.

Sweet! I will make sure to pick up Test 69 from you then. When do you have those available usually?

Q: Who wouldn't be able to take it due to prohibitive expense?

A: The poorest students, assuming they don't receive LSAC waivers, wouldn't be able to take it due to prohibitive expense.

Q: What would that mean for your percentile rank when you take the LSAT?

A: Your percentile rank will likely be lower, because you'll take a test whose difficulty was determined by the performance of a larger proportion of financially wealthy students, all of who are, on average, likely to perform better on the test relative to the poorest students.

Approximately 3 weeks after the test date, when test-takers receive their scores for that exam. So, I expect to have PrepTest 69 available in late June or early July.

But also: a smaller applicant pool causes admissions standards to dip and TTTTs to close.

Glad you enjoy my site!

However, 71 isn't available on my site yet. I assume you mean you bought it on LSAC's site?

I actually completely misread everything that happened in this thread. Interestingly, that is my biggest LSAT issue (misreads)!


Haha, it's all good. Since you mentioned it, some general tips on LSAT misreads:

Always take the time to read the LR stimulus thoroughly before evaluating the answer choices, and take an extra moment when reading each LG rule to make sure you've diagrammed correctly (and not diagrammed the reverse or some other mistake). And, for RC (especially detail or inference questions), always have textual support for any answer choice you pick.

Taking an extra few seconds to make sure you understand everything correctly is really worth it.
