Best Collection of Hardest Real LR Questions?

Postby ConsideringLawSchool » Tue Jul 28, 2009 12:47 am

I'm just wondering whether there is any sort of collection of the most challenging LR questions from past LSATs...

My challenge is this... I consistently get 1-2 LR questions incorrect (total between the two LR sections). I don't have a problem with timing, and the questions that I miss (in the SuperPrep book) tend to be the ones rated "4" or "5" for difficulty. I'd rather not spend my whole life going through practice tests to improve at 1 question per section, and I'd rather not spend all my money buying preptests to isolate the few toughest questions at the end...

At the same time, I agree with the conventional wisdom that it's a silly waste to do lots of theoretical questions contrived by Kaplan/other companies...

Any advice?

Kaplan Mastery Book.

Breaks down questions by type AND difficulty level, from 1 to 4 stars. However, from what I understand, it is getting harder and harder to come by. Amazon had only 2 copies available the other day STARTING AT $100! Keep checking, and look at Ebay and Craigslist as well. Need to be at the right place at the right time.

I always thought that the Kaplan book was their fake questions, no?

It uses real questions, the PT #'s are listed on each page.


Ok, sorry, honestly did not know (relatively new to the whole LSAT thing...)

This is the Kaplan Mastery Book you're referring to, correct?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000N8 ... oh_product

If so, I found this a few days back for only $9. So there is hope to find it at an affordable price.

My buddy and I picked up 2 copies (a 2007 and 2008 version) for $2 each last night... At most there are like 3 or 4 games done and thats it... Basically new. Craigslist is awesome.

absolutely not. Kaplan uses only real LSAT questions; they are very clear about this. If you look at the Mastery book, they cite which PT every question is from at the bottom of each page.

Bump.

I'm looking for the same thing - a list of LR questions by difficulty (there are 5 levels, right?). There has to be another way besides the Kaplan book.

Just wanted to let folks know that I ultimately did find a collection of the hardest LR questions from PT 1-38:

http://www.cambridgelsat.com/productdet ... stions/336

These are awesome for folks who are doing pretty well on LR already and don't necessarily have the time/motivation to go through 76 sections of LRs but are just looking to do the most difficult questions.
