This are a LOT of LSAT prep books. It’s overwhelming. I’m going to highlight the best books.
Note that this is a list of LSAT study guides. For a list of LSAT preptests (which are essential), go here: LSAT preptests
The LSAT Trainer
The three big names in LSAT Guides are Powerscore, Loophole in Logical Reasoning and The LSAT Trainer.
The LSAT Trainer is my personal favourite. The author, Mike Kim, co-wrote the Manhattan Guides. His guide is different is that he covers everything in one volume. He has a straightforward approach and doesn’t give you a bunch of confusing jargon. Instead he offers clear advice for every section, and reinforces what he teaches with extensive drills. I’ve spoken with Mike, and I think the LSAT Trainer will become the new standard guide. It costs $40.

Powerscore LSAT Bibles
The Powerscore Bibles are extremely popular, and have worked for many students. Personally, I prefer the style of the LSAT Trainer, but I think that’s due to taste. These books have worked for many students. The logic games bible tends to be the most popular, followed by the logical reasoning bible. You can save money by buying them in a set of three.
- Set of all three Powerscore Bibles
- Powerscore Logic Games Bible
- Powerscore Logical Reasoning Bible
- Powerscore Reading Comprehension Bible
Loophole in LSAT Logical Reasoning
The Loophole is the newest entrant in LSAT prep guides, and it is exclusively focussed on logical reasoning. It has quickly gained a following for having an effective method for logical reasoning. The cost is comparable to Powerscore’s LR book and you could choose to use this book instead.
Finally, I’ve written a series of explanations for recent LSATs. They’re the same explanations you can find on this site, so you don’t need to buy these books: you can use the explanations online instead. However, many people enjoy having a paper copy, so here are the links. If you have used the explanations and enjoyed them, please leave a review :)
