University libraries would be best.

Used book stores...

Also by old do you mean already used or previous versions

Is there any way that I can get the print editions of previous issues of the Economist? Ideally, I would like to get all of the issues that were printed in 2013. Unfortunately, I can only find the current subscription to the magazine and not past editions of it. I am also interested in (but to a lesser extent) the WSJ. Thank you all!


I think you should check out this thread so no one has to copy and paste for you:

Long story short, I really don't think the Economist is the way to go.

It really depends on how you choose to read the articles.

A few hours a day is somewhat unrealistic. Since you're taking the test in less than a year (assuming you've just recently started prep) I would start out drilling Cambridge RC packets, and focus on getting the fundamentals down before dedicating time to supplemental reading.

The Economist is a great supplement to RC, but by no means is it sufficient for mastering it.

Do the grunt work, drill your brains out. If you discover topic areas that you struggle with (e.g. cell biology, physics), read outside material that focuses on those topics to become more comfortable with them so they don't phase you on test day.

Ha Thanks. The LSAC is less than 15 minutes from where I live. Near a cemetery, also has offices (661 Penn Street) next to Collegeboard.

Went over there a couple of weeks ago. Saw the garages where the trucks deliver all of the exams.

It looked a lot more evil in my head. Fascinating.
