What an extensive and thrilling backstory!

Good luck on your LSAT studying.

ETA: Oh Jesus, do you own not one but.. two copies of Princeton Review's LSAT guide? Burn them. Burn them both.

aren't you the same dood who was entertaining the idea of sending adcoms a video of you with a guitar and singing how badly you want to matriculate to their school?

This is one of the most narcissistic threads I have ever seen. Dedicating an entire thread to your "unique" adventure is going to make schools fall in love with you.

I found a copy of Cracking the LSAT in my trunk from over a year ago when I was cleaning out my car. I lolled, then threw it in the trash.

Yes, I like to entertain thoughts, but I can't actually play the guitar or sing.

Probably a good idea. The Princeton Review LSAT books have major issues.

I love entertaining thoughts, typically over a nice bottle of pinot noir. Get some cheese and crackers, some light jazz, and we have a lovely evening together.

I read in someones guide that the Princeton Review LSAT tests were harder than the actual official prep tests.
Could this be true?

Is there a particular reason to avoid these books?

Yeah, because they suck ass. But don't take the LSAT tutor's advice what you heard was probably right.

Princeton review teaches you bad habits. Unlearning bad habits is harder than learning good ones in the first place. Princeton review is a collection of bad advice...avoid.

Never take fake tests. Other than LG, avoid fake material like the plague.

At least some of PR's LGs aren't fake. They're actually-administered LSAT LGs with the "stories" changed around (you know, like dogs racing instead of horses, or whatever). Probably done to avoid licensing fees. I cracked up when I realized.

I've purchased Ace the LSAT LGs, but haven't used it much yet, as I need to get better at actual LSAT games first, assuming of course that people are right when they say that the games from that book are harder. Basically what I'm wondering is if you did non-LSAT LGs in your prep and if you found them helpful. What I quoted seems to indicate that you did (or at least they have the potential to help for others).

ACE is definitely helpful. Very similar to real games except higher on the difficulty side. Some of the qs are weird and some of the answer choices are sketchy, but as a whole, they are helpful.

Lots of typos in the answer key. Double and triple check to make sure they noted the right choice, but yes, it's otherwise helpful. Definitely hold off on using that book until late in your prep though.

I used Princeton Review and PrepTests only for December 2012 and got a 169. I got the LR Bible and Manhattan RC for my retake and my average PrepTest from 62 to 66 (which I didn't take for December) was a 175.6. I'll probably post all over the place what I get on the June test, but even without knowing my score, I feel like TLS wisdom with study material (Powerscore, Manhattan, Cambridge Packets, PrepTests as the only practice tests) is pretty correct.
