The LSAT is an aptitude test. Like all aptitude tests, it must choose a medium in which to measure intellectual ability. The LSAT has chosen logic. Although this makes the LSAT hard, it also makes the test predictable--it is based on fundamental principles of logic. MASTER THE LSAT analyzes and codifies these basic principles: the contrapositive, the if-then, pivotal words, etc. Armed with this knowledge, you will have the ability to greatly increase your score.
Analytical Reasoning: Learn powerful diagramming techniques and step-by-step strategies to solve every type of game question that has appeared on the LSAT.
Logical Reasoning: Discover the underlying simplicity of these problems and learn the principles of logic these questions are based on.
Reading Comprehension: Develop the ability to spot places from which questions are likely to be drawn as you read a passage (pivotal words, counter-premises, etc.).
Versatile: You can access the course from any computer at any time.
Statistics: Your performance on the exercises and tests is saved and you may review your performance and check solutions at any time. Also, you can check your ranking based on all students taking the course. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Just to let you know, your GPA and LSAT score are the MOST important factors in getting in to a top law school. It's like a job application, your credentials get you in the door and you personality gets you the job. Thing is, in this case, your credentials are your GPA and your LSAT and your personality is the application packet. You won't even get considered if you don't have a good GPA and a good LSAT score.
I just want to let you know this before you buy the book. I thought the application packet was more important than it was and was sorely disappointed to know that although I had good grades and a good packet (in my opinion), my LSAT was low and therefore I wouldn't get in to a top law school. If I had had waited, spent more time with this book and others and redid the exam, I feel I would have done much better on the test. That being said, I love my law school and wouldn't trade it for the world. So, maybe that was a blessing in disguise.
Oh, and as a word of advice from a third year law student, the legal market for jobs is terrible and if you are looking at going to law school, my suggestion is to really consider it as three years from now you could be in massive debt and pulling your hair out looking for a job.
UPDATE: The logic games section of this book has some really misguiding errors in it...therefore it loses a star.
If serious about the LSAT, get this book. The test taker will lose anxiety, focus on success, and have an excellent strategy for not conquering but excelling on their LSAT.
The games section is the most helpful, and better than the other guides I looked at before buying. I completed 18 of the 24 questions, with 3 wrong answers. Great advice on getting this highly timed section done, and done correctly.
All you need to know is in the logical reasoning section. Basic logic. The one thing I disagree with, is the book not recommending reading the question stems before the stimulus. But they say doing so may work for you, they just don't recommend it. I found it helpful and time saving to read the stem (and ONLY the stem, not the answer choices!) before the stimulus, because I found myself rereading the stimulus to identify the answer from the choices. If it works for you, read the stem first to know what to look for in the stimulus. Saves time. I finished both logic reasoning sections with 10 minutes to spare.
The reading comprehension section is solid, but it didn't help me much because I'm very strong in this area. Other test takers I talked to said they benefited greatly from the strategies presented.
This book is no nonsense. It tells you what you need to know to answer the questions, and doesn't try to sell you on any gimmicks. There aren't any magic tricks to get you a 180 on the LSAT. This book will give you the strategies and knowledge to work a good test. Best of luck!
