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.

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.

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.
