You can get cheap ones used on campus stores or at book stores (but better odds of newer ones at campus)

Eh, you have to be careful when giving this advice.

Usually campus stores/book stores have TTT study guides (e.g., Princeton Review, Kaplan, and others).

The credited study guides are: MLSAT bundles, the LSAT TRAINER, BP, and Powerscore bibles.

These can be found on amazon for great prices.

It's all pretty much the same stuff. If someone needs it fed to them a special way, then yeah I say find the one that works best for you.
As long as you can get recent past tests and explanatory answers, that's all that really matters as long as you learn by doing. (some can, some can't)

When you signup for the exam, the LSAC sends you some study stuff too. Some people rely on that alone, but like Dree said you may be better searching online for other preps too. If you really want to spend a few extra bucks you can get there are online lectures and courses you can take too. Some people say it helps.

True. Doing PT's is the way to go.

But you're wrong in that the Princeton Review, Barrons, and Kaplan study guides are similar to the study guides I mentioned. The methods they teach are almost always not the best for everyone cause they suck.

Also for the OP.


You should consider purchasing quality pencils and pencil accouterment

Even when an OP is trolling, thelawdoctor can still find an opportunity to give weird/bad advice and make Boomerish comments.

No. That's not true unless you're awarded the very hard to get LSAC fee waiver.

thelawdoctor wrote: you may be better searching online for other preps too.

That's what this thread is.

No. All you need areTLS, the Manhattan set, PowerScore set, and every PT. For everything else, TLS.

thelawdoctor wrote:It's all pretty much the same stuff. If someone needs it fed to them a special way,

It's not. Different companies advocate for different methods depending on the type of student they're marketing to. The Manhattan books are in on a different planet than, say, a Barron's book.

The acronym technically stands for "Third Teir Toilet," a term coined by the law school scamblog movement to refer to the many awful law schools that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and don't get their graduates jobs. Its use has expanded over the years. Now we use it to describe anything that sucks, is shitty, or deserves ridicule.
