3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD MATERIAL, BETTER STUFF OUT THERE January 3, 2015
Format:Paperback
I recently wrote the LSAT and wanted to actually review LSAT for Dummies because it was one of the resources I used. My two cents is essentially this, if you have lots of time to prepare, it can't hurt to read this book. However, I was on a fairly tight timeline (6 weeks) and found that of all the materials I used (Kaplan, PowerScore), LSAT for Dummies gave me the least "bang for my buck" in the sense of value for time. My top recommendation to any prospective test taker is to write as many of the Prep Tests as possible. I ended up doing 30 Prep Tests; I could have done more if I didn't spend time with this book. My three star rating is largely ranking this product RELATIVE to other prep providers (especially PowerScore). If you have time, this isn't a bad product for "overview" purposes but not something you want to rely on when its time is tight.

5.0 out of 5 stars My only regret is that I should've bought this book ... December 9, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My only regret is that I should've bought this book sooner. It was more helpful for me than was the logic game bible book that I paid quite a bit for.... Very understandable. Very relatable. Very helpful.
