For LSAT practice tests, the best available books in the market are Law School Admission Council: 10 Actual, Official LSAT Prep tests. It must be remembered that it is vital to take all LSAT courses seriously, check your test scores and then review your mistakes before attempting another practice test from the LSAT study materials.

LSAT Study Courses and its Costs
The LSAT itself is only around $75, but any reputable law school is also going to require registration with LSAC (Law School Admission Council) which requires spending of 12$ for application to each law school. But if you take preparatory classes for the LSAT, the costs can range from $400 to1300$. Books and other materials would cost $200. There is no way one can prepare adequately for the test without at least purchasing several practice exams.
However, if finances are a problem, you can get a fee-waiver for the test, and some organizations teach prep classes free to folks below a certain income. See for other details. LSAT Prep Companies and Students are charged differently by for their preparatory courses. LSAT test locations are spread around the country, so see that you include travel expenses as well in your preparatory budget.

LSAT Test Format
The LSAT test has five 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions. 4 of the 5 sections of LSAT contribute to the applicant's score. The other un-scored section, usually referred to as the variable section, is usually used for testing new test questions or to equate new test forms. LSAT consists of five sections along with a writing part: they are LSAT Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning (two sections), Reading Comprehension and the Writing section.
One good LSAT study example based on reasoning type of questions asked is as follows:
Question: Ginger was born in the year 1967, and so in 1976 she was 9 years old. Here, if you notice, the last 2 digits of the person's birth year will be the same as that of the person's 9th birthday, except for the fact that the placement of the digits in the number will be interchanged.

Which of the following can be said as the best criticism of the assertions made?
1. The generalization is valid only for those birth years that do not end in two zeroes.
2. The example does not show the same principle as it is expressed in the generalization upon which it is based.
3. The generalization is only valid for the birth years in which the last digit is one greater than the second-to-last digit.
4. The example can’t be shown to be correct unless the truth of the generalization is already assumed.
5. The generalization is valid only for those birth years in which the last digit is greater than five.
Also, a 35-minute writing sample will be given at the end of the test. LSAC doesn’t give scores for this writing sample. However, copies of your writing sample will be sent to all those law schools you apply, upon which you will be judged.
