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:
Mastering The LSAT – How To Prepare Effectively And Successfully – John Richardson (Also contains Mastering The Personal Statement)
Kaplan LSAT Premier Program
Princeton Review – Cracking The LSAT
Master Series LSAT – Martinson
LSAT For Dummies – Blackwell
McGraw Hill LSAT – Curvebreakers
LSAT Exam Prep – Dulan – Pearson
LSAT Advantage With Professor Dave
How to Prepare for the LSAT – Barrons – Bobrow
The Best Test Preparation for the LSAT-Law School Admission Test – Burdette – REA
Most of these books have not had a “significant reworking” for some years (although a complete rewrite of Richardson – “Mastering The LSAT” is coming out this year). These tend to be “one size fits all” books that cover all sections of the test.
