What are the best LSAT prep books? While there are some that are generally held in high regard and others that are not, personal preference still plays a role in determining which LSAT prep books are best for you. Deciding on which LSAT prep books to use in your prep plan can be difficult, especially since the majority of LSAT prep books at brick-and-mortar bookstores don’t use actual LSAT questions. To get a sense of the teaching style and whether or not it will gel with your learning style, it is important to preview any books you’re considering.
