POWERSCORE ADVICE

Postby joeb89 » Mon Feb 01, 2010 12:00 am

How long did it take you to get through the Powerscore LR Bible? I'm just wondering b/c it's so big and seems very time consuming

I personally find that I don't really do anything that the book suggests including the 9 primary objectives, the diagramming, or reading every answer choice, mainly because of one reason: time. However, it's good to have a feel of the question types and wrong answer types they use. Hopefully I'll get faster though. I've only taken two PTs since going through the book, with slight improvement :roll:

Edit: to answer your question better, I went through it pretty carefully, making sure I understood everything and it took a while

Unlike the LGB, the stuff in the LRB takes a long time to work into your LR approach. I would learn it all once, practice LR for a few months, and then read the LRB again. Once you've made an attempt to work the methods, you can then figure out how to use them on a more intuitive, innate level.
