Book Description

April 1 2005 Prep Course Series
Comprehensive, Rigorous Prep for the LSAT (Includes 4 official LSATs!)

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 numerous actual LSAT questions, carefully selected to illustrate every type of question that has appeared on the test in the past several years, including thorough analysis of 4 official LSATs! 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.

Complete analysis of 4 official LSATs.

Official score conversion charts and writing samples for each test.

The average LSAT scores of 153 ABA approved law schools.

Also includes LSAT test prep software!

Software features:
Mentor Mode: In Mentor Mode, you are immediately told whether you answered a problem correctly, and you can immediately view a detailed solution of the problem.

Test Mode: In Test Mode, you can take a test timed and scored by the program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Overall LSAT Book June 13 2003
Format:Paperback
I've reviewed the large majority of the retail LSAT books and this book, overall, is clearly superior to others. The book suggests that you spend at least six weeks studying for the LSAT. A good suggestion, but consider this an absolute minimum. A better plan is two to six months in advance.
Methods
The book provides the basics of logic, which may prove beneficial for those unfamiliar with logic. Master the LSAT is quite thorough in its methods and explanations for the Analytical and Logical Reasoning sections, which is where most students have difficulties. Curiously, however, the book is somewhat weak on preparing students for the Reading Comprehension section, and quite poor in prepping students for the Writing Assessment. Those concerned with those two sections would do well to avoid this book.
User Friendliness
Simple and straightforward. Simple terminology. Specifically designed for those who will only do self-study, and does not include extraneous information such as advertisements for live classes. The accompanying software is decent, but because the LSAT is paper-based, I suggest skipping the software and working on former LSAT exams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me get a great LAST Score (164) July 11 2004
Format:Paperback
After reading the reviews for LSAT prep guides on Amazon I decided to this one. I used it as my ONLY study guide; however, I did make sure to go through the book thoroughly. I did all the exercises in every section and this left me very well prepared for the exam.
The book did a great job of pointing out some of the common mistakes that LSAT takers make as well as giving you tips and tricks for every section on the LSAT.
I've read that other books do a better job preparing you for the Games section but I found this book easy to follow and in depth in that respect. All of the game types are covered. Let me issue this warning to potential LSAT takers...ignore game types at your own risk, they are all subtley different with their own intricacies. I skipped one of the game types in the book and guess what showed up on the LSAT!
Good Luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great. July 15 2004
By EricH
Format:Paperback
This book serves as a starting point. It is not a start all and end all book. Use it as an intro book, then move onto the Powerscore set of books, namely the logic games bible and the games setup book. After that, get all the prep tests ever released and practice, practice, practice!! You also might want to check out the Kaplan 180 book, it gives good practice on hard LR questions, but ignore the Games and RC sections of the LSAT 180 book. In conclusion, this book is very basic and should not be used alone if you are planning to score high, let's say above 165.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Studying Materials Feb. 23 2004
Format:Paperback
You should definitely include this book within your preparation studies. I would have to say that much of the contents inside of this book is laregly responsible for the increase in my LSAT score (granted I am not a good test taker). The other books that I would/would not HIGHLY recommend is as follows:
HOT:
1)Nova's LSAT, Master the LSAT
2)The PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible
3)10 More Actual Official LSAT Preptests
NOT:
1)Kaplan test prep books
2)Princeton Reviews test prep books
3)Teaching Solutions CD software <- Look out for this company, cause someone has to inform the BBB.

2.0 out of 5 stars mixed feelings Feb. 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am not sure about the effectiveness of this book... I realize the points the authors made about how to approach the problems, what to consider and what not to consider, etc. are true. But my point is there simply isn't enough time in the real test to "think" like the book suggests you do. I get so bogged down trying to analyze the questions that I don't have time to finish the exam.
Instead, I found that working on practice exams one after another the most effective method. In retrospect, the book wasn't a help to me.

By HK
Format:Paperback
I actually liked this book until I finished studying it and decided to write the three LSAT prep tests in the back of the book. Half the questions were used by the author as examples in the earlier chapters of the book! So of course I scored well on the prep tests, since I recognized half of the questions and remembered the answers. The author copied them verbatim. So I had to buy a separate book of LSAT prep tests so that I can write an actual practice test that I haven't seen before.

Then, after I finished the the book I decided to run the CD on my Mac to try more practice exercises, and the CD only works with Mac Classic! Mac OS 10 has been around for over ten years. Current versions of Mac OS don't support the Classic environment anymore. Get with the program, Nova!!!! How can they even be allowed to sell something that 99% of Mac owners aren't able to use?

So I decided to try the online website that the book promotes. Every single question on the website is directly from the book. How does that help me? I already did all the questions from the book. You lose, Nova.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but... July 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is probably all you really need to "study" from... but make sure you do a lot of practice tests under TIMED conditions. What the book lacks that a course might offer is some insight into the process of actually taking the real test- I was easily scoring in my target range but when the test day came I scored lower than in my very first practice test before I did any preparation- simply because of nerves and having a watch rather than a timer in the test room with me. Some insight into the test day, the lengthy administration, the fact that they call '5 minutes left' (which for some reason freaked me out every time) would help calm nerves which can really be what mastering the LSAT is all about- mastering your nerves.
