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.

Using actual LSAT tests is crucial for success when taking the LSAT. However, the test has changed over the last 20 years. This booklet is still useful but does not accurately reflect the current LSAT.

If you are serious about getting a good score on the LSAT, you need to buy this book (along with the other two 10 test booklets available). Make the time to take the 30 tests, even if you have to take one every day. The most important two things on the LSAT are: 1) Never be surprised by a question. 2) Have your timing down perfect. This book will allow you to see a variety of questions over the course of ten practice tests, and you will have your timing down by the end of the last test. I think this is a necessary buy for people who are truly competing for a strong LSAT score.

Good Luck!

I wish I had known prior to buying all my study materials that the LSAT has changed since these tests were administered (the early 90s). Because of this, these tests don't accurately represent the LSAT as it is today, and thus aren't a very reliable study tool. The types of questions in the logical reasoning and logic games sections have changed, and the reading comprehension section now includes a type of passage (comparative) that was not used prior to 2007. LSAC should discontinue sale of this book. I'm probably going to return this.

This is a book of 10 real LSAT PrepTests published by the Law School Admission Council. They were administered from December 1992 - September 1995.

Each PrepTest contains the 4 scored sections of the exam, as well as the writing sample. These PrepTests do not contain comparative reading questions, which were added to the exam in June 2007. If you use this book, you'll want to practice with several newer exams also.

LSAT PrepTest 7 - February 1993 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 9 - October 1993 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 10 - February 1994 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 11 - June 1994 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 12 - October 1994 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 13 - December 1994 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 14 - February 1995 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 15 - June 1995 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 16 - September 1995 LSAT
LSAT PrepTest 18 - December 1992 LSAT

I'm a professional LSAT tutor in NYC, and I also run LSAT Blog. In my experience, I've found that many LSAT books out there choose to make up their own questions rather than pay the licensing fee to the Law School Admission Council to use real questions. However, this practice leaves students woefully unprepared. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to study from REAL LSAT questions, which are exactly what this book provides. However, you may want to focus on more recent exams than the ones provided in this book in order to adequately prepare. (See the tips on my site for more information about what to complete before taking the LSAT.)

For those taking the LSAT in this time period, do NOT use this as your only help.

Why?

Because the LSAT has changed over the many years it has been in business. Even different people took over the LSAT. The logical reasoning, and reading comprehension have changed A LOT.

However, I do recommend doing the logical games in here for practice if you need help. The older test tend to have much harder logical games (analytical reasoning) than the recent ones. If you can master preptest 1-39 logic games, you are good for the logic games for the LSAT.

I bought several of these books to help me study for the LSAT. I found that taking these tests and understanding why I answered a question wrong were great ways to help me prepare. This book is better than the made-up tests that most major test-prep companies use {you can tell an immediate difference}. I felt less stress knowing that I had practiced with the real tests and it made test day a lot easier. One thing, I would do is practice more of the recent tests closer to the actual testing date. I did the opposite and wish I had used the more recent tests.

It is necessary to study the games from this book in order to do well on the LSAT exam. The reading comprehension is about the same except for the comparative reading selections, but the logic reasoning are a mess from this book. They aren't as well constructed as the current logic reasoning questions are. You'll have to find the reasoning for all of the correct answers. They are not provided in this book.

Yes, the most recent LSAT's (45+) are way tougher to score highly on, but this is still an excellent way to drill yourself on particular areas of weakness. The LSAT is a pesky little test and I found that ploughing through as many questions as I could stomach and pinpointing exactly where I made mistakes was by far the most effective approach to preparation.

These older tests are far easier than the LSAT you are likely to take on exam day. Taking the tests in this book will do little more than give you a sense of false security that will leave you stranded and helpless in the examination room. Prepare by taking the more recent tests, which are more difficult and will serve as better indicators of how you will perform on exam day.
