LG Powerscore Bible- Do I need it?

Postby deputamadre » Tue Jan 12, 2010 2:34 am

I do untimed sections of Logic Games and usually get between 1 and 3 wrong. Mind you, sometimes it takes me a loongggg time to do a section, sometimes upwards of an hour. I do a timed section and miss anywhere from 9-12 consistently.

Will going through the LG bible help me with finishing the problems quicker? I can get the graph every single time but when it comes to the questions...the clock starts winding down :(.

Absolutely. Diagramming efficiently will save you a big chunk of that time.

This book is worth its weight in gold. It will help you diagram the games quickly, which is VITAL to performing well during the timed conditions of the test. You probably can find a slightly marked copy on Ebay for 40 bucks. I recommend this book to anyone who casually mentions that they are thinking about law school.

I'd say get the bibles. They teach you how to properly set up a logic game, and that's the most important thing. If you can do that and make key inferences early, you'll see improvements. Making the right inferences makes the game much more limited and the questions become easier. It's the difference between diagramming every answer and knowing what answer to look for.

I say yes, unequivocally. The amount of help you will get from any of the powerscore bibles is well worth the price ($40 for the games bible on amazon). The only prep I did was with the powerscore books and then one of the "10 more actual LSATs" books. Didn't really read the books much before sept, got a 160 I was PT'ing in the 167-172 range. Did nothing but read the books about two weeks before the dec test and got a 169.

OP, it's on amazon for $40 with free shipping (2 day if you have prime) brand new. Buy it.
