We've assembled the best group of LSAT instructors in the world, including Matt Shinners (180), Jelena Woehr (178) and Branden Frankel (175), and we've collaborated to create an LSAT study aid unlike any other LSAT book on the market.
33 Common LSAT Flaws is specifically designed to help students master one of the most important and challenging Logical Reasoning skills tested on the LSAT: identifying flaws within arguments.
Before this book, there was no such resource available, much less one that also teaches strategies for identifying each fallacy and understanding exactly why these arguments are flawed.
Students who struggle with Error in Reasoning questions (the type of Logical Reasoning questions used in this guide as examples) will see their Logical Reasoning scores increase dramatically after reading this book.
But understanding flaws and logical fallacies won't just help you answer Errors in Reasoning questions.
The secret of the LSAT is . . . it's all about flawed arguments.
Whether Strengthening, Weakening, or looking for a Sufficient Assumption, throughout the Logical Reasoning section, students are expected to identify logical flaws and understand how they function within arguments.
33 Common LSAT Flaws is now available for purchase on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.
We have identified 33 distinct logical fallacies that appear on the LSAT and distilled them into 12 Flaw Families. The book serves as a simple, thorough, and highly effective guide to achieving a better Logical Reasoning score on the LSAT. It includes:
- Concise and actionable introductions to all 12 families of LSAT fallacies
- How to identify all 33 common LSAT flaws
- Real examples from the LSAT of each common flaw
Thorough explanations for each sample Logical Reasoning question have been written by LSATMax's 99th percentile instructors. For each question, students learn to identify the question type, discern whether the stimulus is an argument or set of facts, and determine whether the argument is valid or flawed. Along with each sample question, the book provides a summary of the stimulus, a strategy overview, an anticipation of the correct answer, an explanation of the correct and incorrect answer choices, and a key takeaway that students can apply to future Logical Reasoning questions.
LSATMax instructors have found that students struggle with Logical Reasoning on the LSAT for these three primary reasons:
- Difficulty understanding argument structure
- Trouble differentiating between valid and flawed arguments
- Failure to anticipate the correct answer after reviewing the stimulus
In part because of these challenges, up to 40% of students must retake the LSAT at least once before applying to law schools.
Fortunately, 33 Common LSAT Flaws helps to address all three of these issues with its clear focus on understanding flawed arguments?which comprise a supermajority of all arguments in the Logical Reasoning section.

I'd love to hear your success story.
