I am taking the LSAT in less than 2 weeks. As you can imagine, I have been studying hard for the last month. I have completed two programs so far, the one offered by Kaplan and the one offered by Princeton Review.

I did the Kaplan one first, and though I did not find the "tips" useful (such as, "use scratch work", "slow down to speed up"), I thought it was a fair preparation course and was pleased with my results on the practice tests included.

Then I got to the Princeton book and was blown away by the difference. Less fluff, more serious analysis, more detailed break down and strategies. It is really beyond compare. And, the drill questions in the Princeton book were MUCH harder. This is to your benefit.

You can compare the books yourself.

Princeton spends 98 pages on analysis of logical reasoning, Kaplan spends 17 pages.

(I am only counting advice, analysis and tips, not practice questions.)

Games, 96 pages in Princeton, 21 in Kaplan.

Reading Comprehension, 33 Princeton, 15 in Kaplan.

The difference really is that dramatic.

Kaplan has a "better score guarantee" -- well I guarantee, you will not be prepared if you use Kaplan's program.

It would almost be impossible to not increase your score at least marginally by the time your next test rolls around because you will at least be aware that scratch paper is not allowed (mentioned in Princeton, not Kaplan) and other reality checks that will come from actually taking the test.

I do not work for any of these companies, I am just a student. I feel like Kaplan's program is borderline sabotage and will only give a false sense of security.

I started out studying for the LSAT with this Kaplan "Comprehensive" program. BIG MISTAKE. Do not buy this book if you are serious about scoring high on the LSAT. This book literally teaches you absolutely nothing about the test. There is no discussion about the general problem types, answer types, formal logic, strategies, time management techniques, guessing techniques, etc. And, to top it off...their "Practice Tests" are made up. They do not license actual tests from LSAC. Thus, after I finished this book I felt confident. However, once I took a previously administered practice test - the real thing - I was completely unprepared!

My suggestion, which is what I did, is get books focused specifically on the Logical Reasoning section, and the Logic Games section; go with the PowerScore Bible books. They are by far the best, the most thorough, and recommended by everyone. They improved my score big time. They are about $50 bucks a piece (compared to $20 Kaplan) because their examples and practice questions are licensed from the law council... so they actually came from previously administered tests. Worth the money. Using Kaplan I was scoring around 145-148 (not good). After finishing PowerScore's books I jumped my score to 155.

i actually took the kaplan course and got 4 books (which are in this comprehensive program book) with the $2000 course at kaplan. after learning at kaplan, my score went up 5-7 points. it was not high enough for me to get into law school.

eventually i bought other books and took time off work for a month, and studied for 6-10 hours a day (with breaks in between). from that i gained another 7-10 points.

kaplan does help teach you the basics, but i feel like i could have learned that on my own from the books recommended at amazon. i love amazon for having the books i needed in stock, and allowing people to put comments (from which i found the books i could use to raise my score).

thanks amazon!
