(?) Logical Reasoning Prep for Dec2010

Postby PatientCreation » Fri Sep 03, 2010 2:52 pm

Last year I took an Aug-Sept Kaplan full-length course

That was the only prep I have had until now...
The Kaplan course frustrated me because of the fact they focus SO intently on increasing LG scores... After reading through myriad web posts and blogs I have found that 90% of advice is geared toward increasing one's LG score. I've missed maybe maximum of 1-3 questions and am now scoring perfect every time I take the LG section.
My question for the Dec2010 prep:
What advice (aside from taking prep tests) does anyone have for the Logical Reasoning section. It being the largest portion of the test, and the section that gives me the most room to improve, I am looking for some advice > "study study study!"

I have set a stringent schedule to follow and am reviewing my answers (both wrong and right) intently for each question. I also just purchased the Atlas LR self-study book.

Thanks for any advice!

I have read a lot of reviews on the Powerscore LR Bible and if put on a star scale rating it averages about 3/5. Is that a general concensus or is it highly recommended? Has anyone used it and would strongly suggest it on top of the Kaplan and Atlas books I already have?

The PS LR and LG Bibles are the most recommended prep books on TLS.

Personally, I don't think that getting ratings from randoms on Amazon is that helpful for LSAT prep.

I agree completely, thus why I'm asking for advice. Thank you for the recommendation, I'll purchase that book as well, but does anyone have study-tips in terms for how to spend time breaking down questions versus setting a timer and doing a section in 35min? (thus not retaining how to spend time answering the question compared to reviewing why you got it wrong) Or is that all adequately addressed in the PS LR book?
Thanks-

It will likely take you longer to finish sections on the actual test than on PT's, due to pressure, thus you want to be finishing as quickly as possible without sacrificing accuracy. My PT's I had 7-8 minutes to review per section, my actual test was something like 2-3 minutes.

I hear other people say to try and finish the first 15 questions in 15 minutes giving yourself 20 minutes to do the last 10 because they are usually the hardest on LR.
