I'd recommend buying something like Princeton Review, just so you can get a feel for the questions, some tips, etc.

Then I'd buy as many past LSATs as possible from LSAC- you can buy older ones in groups of 10, more recent ones singularly. Then, I'd take as many tests as possible (one a night), ALWAYS TIMED. Anyone can answer the LSAT questions... it's only a question of whether you can answer them within the time constraints. The more you take the tests timed, the better you'll get...

After each test, go thru your wrong answers and figure out what you did wrong.

I recommend the Powerscore books.  I studied on my own using the Games and Logical Reasoning Bibles (I bought them from the Powerscore website) and Master The LSAT and Preptests that I bought off of Amazon.  I was able to raise my score 12 points from the first practice test I took before any studying to the real thing, so those books worked for me!  Good luck!

Powerscore is the holy grail for the logical reasoning section.  Not fond of it for the games section. I think the games section  is a gimme and that the prep books make it overcomplicated.

Yeah, don't waste your time with Kraplan or Princeton Review.  Stick to powerscore or testmasters (www.testmasters180.com).  If you can take the full testmasters course, I HIGHLY recommend it over kraplan or P Review.  If not, try to get into one of testmasters weekend study courses, even those are better than the full kraplan P review courses, in my opinion.

Personally, I swear by the Powerscore Logic Games book. I found it to be a good and very effective system. For the other sections, I just used the Princeton Review book. Of course, I also tend to do well on standardized tests, so your mileage may vary. :)
