    There're not going to be special courses on how to read each book when you get to university so it's probably best to develop them by yourself now.

    I bought the LNAT book from Waterstones and it's worth it. It really helps you to understand exam strategy and gives you a good understanding of what the LNAT is. I would suggest you save your money, and just buy the book.

    How much was the book... cos it seems strange that they released a book which probagly teaches you all you can learn off their course.

    If you don't mind my asking, which book was it? The Amazon/Waterstones site brings up four:


    Passing the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) (Student Guides) by Rosalie Hutton and Glenn Hutton (Paperback - 15 Aug 2005)
    (10%)


    (LNAT) Mastering the National Admissions Test for Law by Mark Shepherd (Paperback - 14 Jul 2005)



    Kaplan LNAT: National Admissions Test for Law (Paperback - 1 Jun 2006)

    Understanding LNAT: The Definitive Guide to Preparing for the National Admissions Test for Law by Mark Alexander Shepherd (Paperback - Oct 2004)

    Only if you only apply to universities that all see the LNAT score. And even then some may take pity on you if other parts of your application are strong.

    Don't do it! I went on one and it didn't help at all. Just do the past papers.

    I'm quite worried about it, too. I am only applying to two universities (LSE and Warwick) who don't use the LNAT, so if I do badly and they reject me too then I will have nowhere!

    ^ If you're very worried, make it three. Consider Leeds, Manchester, etc.

    The book really doesn't help. I sat the LNAT last week, and trust me I wasted 14 pounds by buying that book. It's all about comprehension and critical thinking. What some universities are really interested in is your essay. So if you can present an argument, you're doing alright!

    I thought the whole point of the LNAT was that it was "impervious to coaching"...?

    ^ Kinda. But you have to get into their way of thinking, and some people need more than the online practice test to do that. I wouldn't call reading sample papers "coaching". Knowing the difference between "can be inferred" and "can be gathered" for example.
