Beginning LSAT Test Preparation Books

Beginning LSAT Test Preparation Books

The reality is that almost all commercial LSAT prep books are for beginners. They often provide an excellent introduction. But, they should never be used as your sole source of LSAT prep. At an absolute minimum, you should supplement them with actual LSAT tests.

You should NOT try to read all of these books.  They contain information that contradicts each other.  Some of these books are associated with commercial prep courses. A possible suggestion might be to buy the book, published by the course that you do NOT take. This approach would give you a wider perspective.

A list of LSAT books for beginners  includes:
