From the Author
Hi, I'm Mike Kim, the author of The LSAT Trainer. Thank you for considering my new book. I have spent many years developing LSAT learning products, training LSAT instructors, and, most importantly, working with LSAT students. I've seen countless students improve their scores significantly, and, unfortunately, I've also seen countless students not improve their scores significantly. I understand the common challenges that students face, and I understand how students actually get better at this exam. I've put everything I know about the test into The LSAT Trainer.

I got a 171 on my LSAT.
Your results may vary.
The details: over a 7 week period leading up to the December 2015 LSAT I read and studied about 90% of this book, doing probably 70% of the exercises inside. My decision to apply to law school was relatively last minute--I had no time to sign up for any LSAT prep courses, either online or in person. I was working a full time job plus carrying a small adjunct teaching load. The only additional study materials I used were the official prep tests (some very early ones plus 62-71 and 76) and the free logic game videos available on 7sage's website. I roughly followed the 8-week study schedule from Mike Kim's website. I took 9 timed practice tests total, which is a few more than Mike Kim recommends. My first timed test was a 156, then I jumped to 163, and after that I averaged 173 (high of 177).
Overall I found the book to be engaging and--dare I say it--fun. I looked forward to each chapter, as the LSAT became a quest in itself for me. Mike's writing style was such that I felt we had become friends by the time it was all said and done (although I was afraid to watch any videos of him, lest they disrupt my mental construction of his personality). Of course, that's not to say that this book doesn't require determination to get through. Mike's emphasis on "self-driven" in the subtitle is very appropriate. If that's you, though, then I think you will benefit from this book as much as I did.
Also, if it matters. This book is very appealing to the eye. Great cover art and texture.
