How much overlap between LG Bible & LR Bible?

Postby ComatoseClown » Fri Nov 26, 2010 7:02 pm

How much overlap is there between these two bibles? LR Bible is the first LSAT prep book I've bought, but after reading a few posts I think this might have been a mistake.

Is it a lot more conducive to study the LG Bible first, and then proceed to the LR Bible?

LR bible teaches you strategies for attacking LR problems. LG bible teaches you about LG questions - how can they overlap? Sure both might have a formal logic section, but I don't see how anyone could say getting to one or the other first is a bad thing....

Sandro's right. There's some overlap (conditional reasoning, timing suggestions, general info on the LSAT etc.) but it's very minimal.

Unless you are already scoring -0 to -2 on the LG section, then you should drop $$$ on the LG Bible.

and to add on to that, the LR bible will even help you somewhat with RC now that they are making it more LR like, not a whole lot but the LR bible covers 50%+ of the test while the LG bible is less than 25%.

Agreed. I own all 3 and the RC Bible was only somewhat useful (I would have figured out just about everything in it on my own) given that I had really mastered the LR Bible material before hand. OTOH the LR and LG Bibles are great complements. I did LG first and its more straight-forward conditional reasoning helped paved the way for LR being more understandable.
