I do not believe the date should expire especially since it is a new book.

I don't work for Kaplan and I won't gain anything from them for telling you about them except helping you to use better resources.

That's when I found out that The Princeton Review doesn't use real test questions like it used to when I coached other tests.

Format: Paperback
This book is only good for someone who has no idea what the LSAT is and who aims to get an average score. The book does put forth some good techniques but do not be fooled into buying this book b/c of the DVD. The DVD is mostly unhelpful and consists of maybe 20 minutes of very broad and general knowledge.

If one really wants to crack the LSAT i.e. break the 170 mark, buy the Powerscore books. They are more expensive, but they go through every type of question and how to solve them. Then go to the LSAC website and buy some previously administered tests.

The information provided in the book is well organized and does a good job of explaining steps and strategies. I would recommend the book without hesitation. However, if like me, you buy it thinking the DVD would be a good way to supplement the material, you'll probably be disappointed.

While the DVD does cover the different areas of the test, it does so fairly superficialy and it's easy to watch the entire disk in one sitting, because it's so short. So if the DVD might otherwise give this the edge over another alternative, it shouldn't, although the book will stand on its own merits.

I'm probably not the best reviewer for this product since I haven't yet taken the exam yet, and this is also the first book I ordered to study for it. I've read through it and I have to say that it is very easy to approach and that the writer has picked good examples to explain. This isn't the end-all-be-all, but I'm very happy I started with this book. Next up... the bibles. A great thing about this book over the older one is that it was updated to include the new reading questions (with two passages). The videos were only slightly better than useless! Get the cheaper version and put the savings toward old tests. I'd say best of luck, but you might hurt the scoring scale ;-)

This is a copy/paste of my review for the 2012 edition of this book. I really wish someone had stopped me from wasting time on Princeton Review during my study process so here is my two cents on this book vs. The power score bibles:

I am currently prepping for the June 2012 LSAT and bought this princeton review in December to begin the process of studying. I was looking for a comprehensive understanding of the overall test to introduce myself to the logic of it. I also bought the "Official LSAT Prep" from LSAC. After doing copious research I also went ahead and signed up for the Powerscore full length prep course that begins in mid April. While doing research and after reading numerous advice blogs from various sources, I realized that many professionals recommend NOT overlapping your study process with different prep companies to avoid learning different techniques. For example, Princeton review teaches you to read the question stems in logical reasoning BEFORE the stimulus. While Powerscore offers an extremely valid reason for NOT doing so.

I found that this princeton review has confusing wording when you are trying to introduce yourself to the test. Sometimes I found myself re-reading sentences just to understand what the heck the author was trying to convey. In addition, it doesn't have REAL LSAT questions so the examples are extremely over-simplified. We are preparing for a very hard test, you might as well practice with questions that match the level of difficulty we will face on test day!!

I started over in my study process with the power score bibles (Logical Reasoning and Logic Games) and my level of understanding has doubled. The language and writing style is easier to understand so I am actually grasping concepts quicker than with the princeton review.

Format: Paperback
As a former The Princeton Review teacher, I automatically bought this book when I decided to take the LSAT. I truly believed that TPR was the best test prep out there, and that using real test questions is the only way to learn how the testmakers think.

I was stunned when I found in Chapter 2 of this book an example of an argument (i.e. Logical Reasoning) question that uses an incorrect assumption in its "correct" answer choice. That's when I found out that The Princeton Review doesn't use real test questions like it used to when I coached other tests. That's when I put down this book and ordered books from Powerscore, which does license real test questions from the Law School Admission Council, and the LSAC's own Official LSAT Test Prep books, which contain actual LSATs.

The DVD, while professionally done and gorgeous, isn't helpful either.

I'm using this product at the moment and the DVD's section on analytical reasoning is occasionally wrong. How am I supposed to trust a product that thus far (I'm twenty minutes into the DVD) has had two questions where the teacher has explained answers incorrectly or failed to use all of the premises that the question sets out. If you are curious which one I am specifically referring to it is the first and last questions in the Harold, Maude, and Lloyd activity's analytical reasoning game. The guide has been helpful but this is driving me crazy.

As a professional LSAT tutor/blogger in NYC, I can tell you that it is CRUCIAL that you practice only with real practice exams published by LSAC. The LSAT is not a computerized exam. It has never been one.

When LSAT prep companies start publishing books with DVDs in them, you know that they're just trying to take your money. Steer clear of this book and go with LSAC's "Next 10 Actual Official LSAT Preptests."
