The exams in this book are somewhat old. They are from 1999-2002. Nonetheless, it's a very useful book to get for two reasons:
1. Price: the exams in this book cost £1.70 each, which is far cheaper than buying them individually
2. Individual section practice. You'll want to save at least 20 of the more recent exams for full timed practice tests. You can use the exams in this book to drill specific question types and individual sections.
Note that there are a couple of differences from more modern tests:
* There are no comparative reading passages. Those only appeared in June 2007
* The logic games only have one page. The new LSATs from LSAT 66 onwards have two pages.
These are not reasons not to use the tests, but you should be aware that newer tests are slightly different.
p.s. These exams not come with explanations. I've written complete explanations for all of the tests. They come in two volumes.

It contains modern LSATs (post December 1995). Even though the tests are newer you'll still notice some slight variation between these tests and the real LSAT you'll take. That said, it's an excellent study aid, it's cost effective, and it's easier to order than a bunch of seperate tests.
This book contains:
PrepTest 29; October 1999
PrepTest 30; December 1999
PrepTest 31; June 2000
PrepTest 32; October 2000
PrepTest 33; December 2000
PrepTest 34; June 2001
PrepTest 35; October 2001
PrepTest 36; December 2001
PrepTest 37; June 2002
PrepTest 38; October 2002
Each PrepTest contains the 4 scored sections of the exam, as well as the writing sample. These PrepTests do not contain comparative reading questions, which were added to the exam in June 2007. As such, you'll want to practice with several newer exams also.

I'm a professional LSAT tutor in NYC, and I also run LSAT Blog. In my experience, I've found that many LSAT books out there choose to make up their own questions rather than pay the licensing fee to the Law School Admission Council to use real questions. However, this practice leaves students woefully unprepared. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to study from REAL LSAT questions, which are exactly what this book provides. I recommend these exams to all of my students. However, you'll need many more LSAT PrepTests than those in this book in order to adequately prepare. (See the tips on my site for more information about what to complete before taking the LSAT.)
This may just be a function of the order in which I took the practice tests, but I found the games in this book harder than the games in the previous two. I was freaked out by the fact that my scores on the games section started dropping as I made my way into book 3.
The games in this book are slightly different from the ones in the others, and I think I would have been surprised by the games on the real test if I hadn't bought this book as well as the other two. I had learned how to do the old ones, but the new ones threw me a bit. Through this book, I got familiar with the newer types of games, which enabled me to solve them on the real test.
Doing all of the practice tests (older and newer) worked best for me. But if you only have a couple of weeks to study rather than a few months, my advice would be to focus on the newer ones, or at least to do a mixture of the older and newer ones. Good luck!
Although I recommend taking as many practice LSATs as humanly possible in preparation for the real thing, if you are short on time, get this packet instead of the previous two. The test has changed a lot over the years, and in most instances, has become more difficult; I find scoring 178 on a test from the mid-nineties to be less challenging than scoring a 170 on a test from last year.
It is true that this packet simply contains past LSATs with their answer keys, and no explanation for why the right answer is the right answer. Unless you feel as extremely unfamiliar with the types of questions on the LSAT, however, that there are no explanations is probably a plus: figuring out why your answer to a question was wrong is actually more valuable than simply getting the question right. Having another book handy which explains the test and question types--I recommend Kaplan's--is extremely beneficial, though.
And good luck to all future LSAT takers!
