Products and services like books, online and in-person courses and private tutoring can help prepare students for the Law School Admissions Test, or LSAT.

Typical costs:

  • LSAT review books typically cost $10-$200. For example, McGraw Hill's LSAT 2012[1] sells for $13 and includes 6 practice test as well as online supplement to course material in the book. A student might need one, two or three books to review all topics covered in the test. Powerscore Test Preparation sells the LSAT Bible Trilogy[2] for $140. The three books included are Logical Reasoning, Logic Games and Reading Comprehension, which sell separately for about $50 each. Kaplan sells three LSAT review books[3] for $55-$60 each, each of which fully covers either logical reasoning, logic games or reading comprehension, for a total cost of $175.
  • An online LSAT prep course typically costs $600-$1,150. For example, Knewton[4] offers a one-year membership to LSAT prep course online for $690 (sale price) or $890. The course includes 12 live classes as well as many on-demand classes, 60 practice tests and a money-back guarantee if the student does not gain at least 5 points to his or her LSAT score. The Princeton Review offers the LSAT LiveOnline[5] courses for $1,200, which includes 55 hours of real-time online instruction with a headset with which to engage the instructor and classmates.
  • In-Person Course or Group Tutoring can typically cost $800-$1,450 for about 20 sessions. For example, the University of Kansas offers an in-person review course[6] that costs $899 for 10 sessions of 3 hours each. The course includes a practice test and each session covers some topics from the LSAT, such as analytical reasoning and reading comprehension. The non-profit group Blackstone Test Prep[7] in Celebration, FL, offers a 20-session course (each 3 hours or longer) with five practice tests and 1,000 page of study materials for $800. Students also have access to the law school application workshop and personal statement writing clinic.

Students can schedule sessions at their convenience and the package includes four proctored LSAT practice exams as well as access to online study materials. Kaplan offers additional tutoring at $160 per hour. TestMasters[9] in Palo Alto, CA, offers private LSAT tutoring from $100 per hour for telephone or online tutoring or $150 for in-person tutoring.
