LR Bible in conjunction with Manhattan...advice?

Postby leche » Sat Mar 19, 2011 2:44 pm

LR is my weakest section. I went through the LR Bible once already (before I took the test the first time) and am going to go through it again. I also bought the Manhattan guide, which I haven't cracked open yet. Should I read through one, then the other? Or read parts of each together (i.e. read the section on Weaken questions in LRB then in Manhattan, going back and forth between the two)? Any advice?

I read the LRB and then went and purchased the LR Guide from Manhattan. I have to say that I have picked up more and improved my LR scores more since picking up the Manhattan guide over the LRB. The Manhattan guide does a great job in drilling and giving you a process to follow. I think the Manhattan guide does a better job to give you knowledge on how to use the tools required. The LRB is great at giving you the tools, but I think the Manhattan guide is better at showing you how to use them in the required setting.

I didn't find the LR Bible to very helpful, though many do. For me, the LR Bible was pointing out shit that I had already figured out from taking multiple PT.





Edit: I know I might be banned for what I'm about to type, as it is against consensus, but the Princeton (online) materials helped me to improve my LR section drastically. I didn't use Manhattan.

I haven't crack it either. I hope Manhattan is superior to the LR bible. Let's see 8)

I'm using both manhattan and powerscore together. I alternate after every new introduced topic. It's working well so far, as I'm able to quickly compare and contrasts the two methods and perhaps even merge the two tactics to create one personalized for me.

I also plan on using both the LRB and the Manhattan LR book (just ordered the latter today actually). The LRB was helpful at first, as it helped me go from about -8 per LR section to about -4. I'm hoping the Manhattan book will supplement the at-times generic advice given in the LRB and allow to build off of the skills I developed in the Bible. I don't see how using both can hurt.
