LSAT Exam Prep Books and Resources - ISBNs and Best Prices

Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is standardized test for law school admission used in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC), a nonprofit corporation formed to standardize the admission process for law schools in the United States and Canada, administers it. All law schools approved by the American Bar Association (ABA) are LSAC members, as are Canadian law schools recognized by their territorial law societies or government agencies. LSAC also provides other valuable services, chief among them being the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) which allows streamlining of law school admission process by allowing students to have all transcripts, recommendations, and evaluations sent only once to the LSAC. They in turn consolidate all this along with the LSAT scores and writing samples (part of the LSAT test that is not scored by LSAC) into a report, which is sent to the prospective law schools the student is applying to. Using CAS has since become a requirement for JD (law school – Juris Doctor or Doctorate of Jurisprudence – equivalent to the LLB Bachelor of Law degree outside the US).

The basic fees for the LSAT test is v$180 in the US (Canada slightly higher) and $175 for the Credential Assembly Service (CAS), which is required by all US law schools for JD admission. Fees for other optional test related services such as date change and center change are $90 each. LSAC offers a fee waiver program for US citizens who can demonstrate the absolute inability to pay (tax records). LSAC also offers a free actual test (June 2007) and certain other sample test materials for free in pdf form in their website.

The test itself is very long and takes up to 7 hours to complete. It is administered four times each year and there is no score choice – all test scores from the last 5 years get reported – you can cancel scores within 6 days of taking the test, however. LSAT consists of five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions, and a 35-minute writing sample. The writing sample and one of the five sections are not scored. The writing sample is sent as part of the CAS report sent for law schools to evaluate. The unscored multiple-choice test is used to pretest new test questions. The multiple-choice question types may be one of the following:
  • Reading comprehension: Measures the ability to read, with understanding and insight, lengthy and complex materials similar to those encountered in law school. The section contains four sets of reading questions, each consisting of a selection of reading material and associated questions.
  • Analytical reasoning (Logic Games): Measure the ability to understand structure of relationships and to draw logical conclusions about that structure. The questions attempt to measure legal problem solving skills, by having students’ reason deductively about relationships among persons, things, or events.
  • Logical reasoning: Measure the ability to analyze, critically evaluate, and complete arguments as they occur in ordinary language. It involves reading a short passage and answering a question about it. The questions attempt to assess legal reasoning skills by having students draw well-supported conclusions, reasoning by analogy, etc.
