Old tests-Worthwhile but be careful
on March 29, 2012
This book contains 10 real, actual LSAT tests that were administered between 1992 and 1995. These tests are helpful but you MUST be careful with parts of the test.
1. The Logical Reasoning sections in these tests SHOULD NOT BE DONE. At all. They are similar in type, scope, and topic to the modern questions, but they are looser. Less logical. It took some time for the makers of the LSAT to learn how to write very high quality questions. The reason this matters is because LR questions are a fusion of logic and english and if the english is a bit off, one can misinterpret how to look at the questions.
2. The Logical Games section is also very different, however all of the games in this book should be done. That being said, they should be done LAST, after you have mastered the more modern types (linear/grouping/combo) games. This is because the games are mostly predictable and you want to spend much of your time learning the predictable aspects of the games. However the makers of the LSAT are constantly changing and shifting the test, so you also need to spend some time with less predictable/weird games, which these are.
3) Reading Comprehension is much the same although, if possible, it is preferable to stick to later tests.
