Format: Paperback
I took the LSAT twice during my senior year of college, scoring 166 on both tests. I had done about a month and a half of self-prep before each of these administrations, and used the Powerscore Bible series along with practice tests. I frequently post on top-law-schools.com and several users thought that Manhattan series was great, so I decided to try the reading comp guide (which was my weakest section). I created a study group on TLS, and Manhattan's managing director got a hold of me, asking if I'd be interested in having a free online room where my fellow studiers and I could meet to work on prep together. He also decided to send me a copy of each of the books without asking me to pay.

The Logic Games guide is really solid. It breaks down the game types into general categories, so that if you get a weird game type, you can still attack it within one (or more) of these constructs. While some of Powerscore's methods are as good as Manhattan's, they are not better, and there are some game types for which Manhattan absolutely crushes Powerscore.

The Logical Reasoning guide is basically equal to the Powerscore method. There are a few minor differences that I prefer, such as asking you to read the questions stimulus before reading the prompt, but choosing between the two is more of a personal preference issue.

The Reading Comp guide is vastly superior to Powerscore's. I will add that no reading comprehension guide is really that effective. Everyone reads differently, and improvement in this area is mostly about finding what works for you, but the book provides a strong framework from which to start.

In sum, the Manhattan series, in my opinion, and in the opinion of most of the people I've interacted with, is the best LSAT prep series out there.

I used the Manhattan Guides coupled with their online program and I highly recommend it. I had been studying on my own with a Princeton Review Book and I found Manhattan to be far superior. All three guides are incredibly in depth and offer strategies that are easy to grasp if you put in the effort and more importantly repeatable. I am currently a senior and I have attended the free workshops that other test prep companies offered on campus and one of the things I noticed amongst some of them was that they advertised little tricks that supposedly would help you. For example, one rep from a test company told us a supposed trick about how to guess the right answer if you ran out of time. What was refreshing and impressive to me about Manhattan is that instead of tricks they emphasize understanding the test and learning good strategies that I quickly became comfortable using, and it gave me much more confidence going into the test. These guides go above and beyond though in the way that they prepare you to adapt to the test. In my brief experience with Princeton Review it seemed that they advocated very rigid strategies for specific situations, but as any LSAT taker finds out the test often throws many curveballs. In my opinion the Manhattan guides showed an incredible knowledge of how the test works, and the strategies taught in them could be adapted to meet subtle changes that shows up on every version of the LSAT. Certainly picking LSAT prep materials will vary from person to person, but as someone who just took the October LSAT I cannot recommend Manhattan LSAT enough.

I have been studying for the LSAT on and off for about two years and could not find a prep book or online tool that produced results and KEPT MY ATTENTION. This book has done both. It is easy to focus on, the methods explained come naturally, and it basically saved me from being stuck in the mid-160s. If you are a serious applicant, trying to prep, and can't find a book that actually makes you want to study -- buy this series and it will not let you down. I've never wanted to or tried to prepare for standardized tests before and have taken many. This book makes it easy and interesting, and really helped me stay focused and learn the key to the LSAT.

BUY THEM.

The books are a must-have for anyone who is struggling with the LSAT and wishes to break into the 170s. I purchased them as a bundle but I've written individual reviews for each book on the book's respective page as each book merits its own discussion.

Format: Paperback
I registered for the Winter Online B course this year. Enrollment came with the full compliment of MLSAT guides. I had used a considerable amount of resources (PowerScore, Kaplan) leading up to taking this class. I knew going into the course that MLSAT had a reputation for being challenging.

What I didn't know was how accessible the material is. Manhattan would work for a 130 test-taker to get to 150, or a 158 to get to a 168. It all depends on how much you'll dedicate yourself to it. If you do decide to go this route, you should know that to gain full understanding you will have to push yourself--and with good reason.

MLSAT is challenging because the LSAT is challenging. They say law school reprograms you to think like a lawyer. If that is true (I believe it is) then the LSAT is the first step in your mental transformation. I can't think of a resource I'd rather use to take this step.

The guides would work fantastically as a standalone resource. But I highly recommend their online course as well. Even better if you can get into a classroom nearby (on-campus, in certain cities) to meet with one of their instructors (all scored in the 99th percentile on an official exam) face to face.

You won't get a 170+ unless you use MLSAT.
+170 --> MLSAT (HUZZAH!)

Happy Studying.
