On this page you’ll find learn to buy official LSAT PrepTests (including one that you can get for free). These are real LSATs that were given to former test takers.

NOTE: If you are looking for LSAT training books or starter guides, take a look at my Best LSAT Study Guides post.

Practicing with real tests is essential if you want to do well on the test. I suggest you work through at least 10 tests and probably more. I worked through all published tests available during my prep, and I’m glad I did.

If you don’t plan to work through all of the tests, then buy the newest tests. The LSAT has evolved over the years, and your test will likely resemble a test given last year a lot more than a test given in 1994.

Preptest Volumes

LSAC has released most of the PrepTests in volumes of 10 tests. This is by far the cheapest way to get your hands on some PrepTests. The following volumes have been released:

10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests Volume V

This volume contains tests 62-71. That’s the December 2010 LSAT through the December 2013 LSAT. Buy here.

10 New Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests with Comparative Reading

This volume contains tests 52-61. That’s the September 2007 LSAT through the October 2010 LSAT. Buy here.

10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests 42-51

This volume contains tests 42-51. That’s the December 2003 LSAT through the December 2006 LSAT. Buy here.

The Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests

This volume contains tests 29-38. That’s the October 1999 LSAT through the October 2002 LSAT. Buy here.

10 More, Actual Official LSAT PrepTests

This volume contains tests 19-28. That’s the June 1996 LSAT through the June 1999 LSAT. Buy here.

10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests

This volume contains tests 7, 9-16, and 18. That’s the February 1993 LSAT, the October 1993 LSAT through the September 1995 LSAT, and the December 1992 LSAT. (That’s not a typo! The tests are not always chronologically numbered. Also, the December 1993 LSAT  was later used again as September 1995 LSAT and is now just called “PrepTest 16.”) Buy here.

That’s a grand total of 60 PrepTests that you can get in the volumes. That’s a lot of material to work through.

Other Tests

Some currently published LSATs are not included in the volumes of 10. Those are listed here.

June 2007 LSAT

The June 2007 test is given away for free on LSAC’s website. This test was the first to contain the comparative reading section. You can find it here.

The Official LSAT SuperPrep

This book contains the February 1996 LSAT, the February 1999 LSAT, and the February 2000 LSAT. This book also contains official explanations for each of the questions in the tests and a wonderful introduction to the LSAT. I highly recommend this book. Buy here.

The Official LSAT SuperPrep II

This book contains the December 2010 LSAT, the June 2011 LSAT, and formerly undisclosed LSAT known only as Form 96. Form 96 is clearly a fairly recent test (as it contains comparative reading), but the exact date that it was given is unknown. There’s a bit overlap between this test and 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests Volume V, but the SuperPrep II does provide explanations for it’s tests (unlike the volume of 10), giving it some additional value. And some people just want to have a copy of Form 96. Buy here.

PrepTests 72-80

The most recent tests that have released are LSATs 72-80. That’s the June 2014 LSAT through the December 2016 LSAT. These tests are very valuable to future test takers, but they have not been released in volume form yet. However, the tests can be purchased individually.

The Missing Tests

Some formerly published tests are no longer available new. You can sometimes find them in used book stores, but they are largely unavailable to modern test takers. This is not generally problematic as so many tests are still sold. But for the sake of completion, here’s a list of the formerly published tests that you might find if you’re lucky:

  • PrepTest 1 (June 1991)
  • PrepTest 2 (October 1991)
  • PrepTest 3 (December 1991)
  • PrepTest 4 (February 1992)
  • PrepTest 5 (June 1992)
  • PrepTest 6 (October 1992)
  • PrepTest 8 (June 1993)
  • Feburary 1997 LSAT (unnumbered)
  • PrepTest 17 (December 1995)
  • PrepTest 39 (December 2002)
  • PrepTest 40 (June 2003)
  • PrepTest 41 (October 2003)

But this is still not the complete list of former tests. Since 1996, the February tests have mostly been undisclosed to the public. And for each tests given on a Saturday, a number of test takers choose to take the test on Monday for religious reasons. (This is officially known as the Saturday Sabbath Administration.) The Sabbath tests are also undisclosed.

India Tests

Four free tests have been released for test takers in India. These tests are in PDF form. The tests overlap with the tests listed above, and they are a bit different (like having four answer choices sometimes instead of five). But since the LSATs are free, there’s little harm in giving the them a shot.
