“This book is a lifesaver! I have tried other prep-books, but they failed to provide the realistic experience that this book offers. It includes an unmatchable section on logic skills for the Logical Reasoning and Analytical Reasoning sections. This is a must have for any serious law school applicant.”

—Lindsey Simmons, Texas Tech University, Class of 2006
