Photocopying LSAT prep tests ... a better way?

Postby Roverse » Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:29 pm

Having to stand over a communal photocopier and scan in every PT is time consuming and annoying, and the pages never come out as straight as I want! Aside from muttering under my breath about how the LSAC is stuck in the 1440s, is there anything I can do to make this less annoying? I'm on my 10th PT and this is getting old. :cry:

You can't anymore. You can try to find somebody to send/sell them to you (illegally). Or try Kinkos

I found it was a lot easier to use tiny-scan on my phone. The camera is good enough for what you need and it was easier to get the page flat.

I'm wondering, whether it's possible to cut off the binding and scan it through a feeder?

I actually use our library's book scanner. It allows you to rest the book in a natural open position and scan the pages that way. It's not perfect, but it allows me to use PTs more than once while only having to scan once.

I had the same idea, but I found that so time consuming. What app did you use? CamScanner seemed to be pretty adept at flattening and recoloring scans.

I've never done anything like that before. I'm afraid of damaging it.

I used tiny scanner. I was just copying the games, and usually I just did it before taking the test. That way I could reprint whenever I needed more games to practice. It's still not efficient I suppose.

If you get the new PTs which are in the individual bindings, it is very easy and quick to do this. Thats what I did.

Great to know, thanks! I have the most recent PTs in the individual bindings, so I'll give that a shot.
