Borrow Borrow Borrow Borrow
To prepare properly for the LSAT, you must study problems that reflect the true LSAT format. The best way to do that is to study actual LSAT tests. Now, you can do that with this book! MASTER THE LSAT contains detailed solutions to 85 actual LSAT questions, carefully selected to illustrate every type of question that has appeared on the test in the past several years! These solutions will introduce you to numerous analytic techniques that will help you immensely not only on the LSAT but in law school as well.

The LSAT is an aptitude test. Like all aptitude tests, it must choose a medium in which to measure intellectual ability. The LSAT has chosen logic. Although this makes the LSAT hard, it also makes the test predictable--it is based on fundamental principles of logic. MASTER THE LSAT analyzes and codifies these basic principles: the contrapositive, the if-then, pivotal words, etc. Armed with this knowledge, you will have the ability to greatly increase your score.

Features:
* Analytical Reasoning: Learn powerful diagramming techniques and step-by-step strategies to solve every type of game question that has appeared on the LSAT.
* Logical Reasoning: Discover the underlying simplicity of these problems and learn the principles of logic these questions are based on.
* Reading Comprehension: Develop the ability to spot places from which questions are likely to be drawn as you read a passage (pivotal words, counter-premises, etc.).
* Mentor Exercises: These exercises provide hints, insight, and partial solutions to ease your transition from seeing LSAT problems solved to solving them on your own.
* The average LSAT scores of 153 ABA approved law schools.

Excerpts-
  • About This Book section

    The LSAT has the reputation of being one of the hardest entrance exams given; it is a reputation well earned. This should not discourage you; rather it should motivate you to take the test seriously and study for it assiduously. Although the LSAT is a difficult test, it is a very learnable test.

    This is not to say that the LSAT is "beatable." There is no bag of tricks that will show you how to master it overnight. You probably have already realized this. Some books, nevertheless, offer "inside stuff" or "tricks" which they claim will enable you to beat the test. These include declaring that answer-choices B, C, or D are more likely to be correct than choices A or E. This tactic, like most of its type, does not work. It is offered to give the student the feeling that he or she is getting the scoop on the test.

    The LSAT cannot be "beaten." But it can be mastered--through hard work, analytical thought, and training yourself to think like a test writer.

    This book will introduce you to numerous analytic techniques that will help you immensely, not only on the LSAT but in law school as well. For this reason, studying for the LSAT can be a rewarding and satisfying experience.

    Although the quick-fix method is not offered in this book, about 15% of the material is dedicated to studying how the questions are constructed. Knowing how the problems are written and how the test writers think will give you useful insight into the problems and make them less mysterious. Moreover, familiarity with the LSAT's structure will help reduce your anxiety. The more you know about this unusual test, the less anxious you will be the day you take it.

    The LSAT is not easy--nor is this book. To improve your LSAT score, you must be willing to work. If, however, you study hard and master the techniques in this book, your score will improve--significantly.

Reviews-
  • Charles Fleener--Director, Pre Law Program, St. Louis University Best LSAT prep book ever. We've been around the block with more than a few over the years we have been offering a prep course. Students in our course find Master The LSAT to be an enormous help in their search for an understanding of the dynamics of the test. Our law school student instructors praise the book's ability to provide the appropriate explanation to a point of logic or analytical reasoning that confounds the novices. Repeating: Best LSAT preparation book ever.
  • Ed Geil--student The other books do not break down the material into the component parts necessary to truly understand the test. Your book does. It is certainly the clearest and most logical book written for the LSAT. On my first LSAT I received a 151. This time I used your book, and I received a 160. This apparently is a very rare increase--accomplished by less than 10 percent of LSAT repeaters. I owe a great deal of this improvement to your book.
  • George Braxton, Assistant Dean for Admissions, The Catholic University, Washington D.C. Master The LSAT is the best LSAT prep book on the market. This book is the most rigorous approach to the LSAT I have encountered. I have referred it to a number of individuals who had not scored well on the test after taking expensive review courses and about 90% of them experienced solid improvements in their scores. Most found it a much more sophisticated approach to the LSAT than is usually offered by prep courses or other prep books. However, I have suggested it only to serious, disciplined studiers, as it requires more dedication to "work" the book than to listen to instructors.
