Powerscore LSAT Prep guides

Postby AshtonB » Sat Jan 02, 2010 5:41 pm

Are they worth buying? Did anyone here use them and end up achieving significantly better results?

I used them. Found the LG bible to be helpful, LR less so, RC the least.

But then again, I always found RC to be easiest section, LR the next easiest, and LG to be hardest.

** I do not attribute my score difference to the books (jump from the 160s to the high 170s), but they certainly didn't hurt. The Powerscore books were my only prep materials aside from the official Prep Tests. As an aside, I also found I received the Prep Tests faster when ordered directly from Powerscore.

LG is a big help for improving both speed and accuracy, the others less so. LR might be helpful if you're willing to invest multiple hours daily to studying. I didn't buy RC, but I can't imagine it being much more helpful than an SAT prep book, to be honest. The only significant difference between LSAT and SAT RC is how difficult the questions are.

This is coming from someone who was strong on LG to begin with. But honestly I think LG is only helpful if you're decent at LG to begin with. If you have serious trouble with LG, get a simpler prep book first until you're able to finish at least 3 of 4 games with few or none wrong among those, and then get PS LG.

I agree for the most part, but I don't think you need to be able to do 3 games with almost perfect accuracy to get benefit from the LG bible. I only got 12/25 correct for LG on my diagnostic, and I immediately dove into the LG Bible when I started studying. That + full prep tests were the only materials I used, and I didn't miss any.
