Hi all! What did you use to prepare for Phase 1 assessment test besides the available practice test on their website?

Thank you

The practice test they provide is going to be your best bet. Some other people used the Border Patrol study guide and others recommended LSAT study materials. I will still hold to the opinion that what they provide is the most helpful.

After having taken and passed the P1 test, you really only need to use the FBI-provided study guide. That's all I used and I don't think any other resources would have helped. Just review how they came to the answer solutions. For the personality type stuff, I would only suggest to remain consistent. And answer honestly.

I agree, the study guide covered it. However, I thought it was useful to practice pattern recognition questions to get used to the format. Here are some sites with pattern recognition puzzles similar to the ones in the booklet that I found useful:

Khan Academy has free LSAT prep, focus on the Legal Reasoning section only.
