    There are better books out there...

    The book was okay...but I feel like her sample questions in the practice tests are not representative of those that are actually asked on the LSAT (I took the test like a week ago). And, the way she words certain questions in the games section are ambiguous bc she leaves out some key words. If you really want a good guide to the LSAT, try the Princeton Review book or the LSAC Super Prep.

    Great!

    The Judge that wrote this did a really great job. I have been using at least six different LSAT practice books and this is the best!
