Buying Prep Books

Postby Darmody » Thu May 23, 2013 9:22 pm

Does it matter which publication year you get? If so, which ones would you recommend? I'm looking to get the Manhattan bundle and the Powerscore Bibles for LG, LR, and RC. I was just planning on buying them from Amazon, but if there are better deals out there, please link them as well. Thank you.

Also, do you buy the prep tests from the Cambridge website? Are these the official tests from previous exams? I'm looking to buy tests 10-68.

This was the link I was looking to purchase from.

For Manhattan, you want the 3rd edition. And there are a couple different options for the prep tests. The link you had only provides the PDFs, but personally I would get the hard copy versions first.

Just use Amazon to get official preptests (search: "Official LSAT preptests").
MLSAT and Powerscore are basically the way to go.

I prefer buying pdfs rather than hard copies from Amazon, as the poster above has suggested. You can print pdfs again and again, which is helpful.

Both Cambridge and LSAT Blog sell digital copies of the official tests.

The only thing I can say on that is the 10 New Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests actually had a serious typo in it for a while. The answer key had the wrong answer credited. It was an easy question and I spent 10 minutes saying this is IMPOSSIBLE, only to check online and see that I actually had the right answer and the answer key was wrong lol

Did yours not come with the slip correcting the typo? Whoops.

11-68, get 40-68 and buy the drill packets which include problems from 1-39.
Instead of getting PT
