Logic Games by Type

Postby averagek » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:50 am

while i am still an lsat novice i have been here long enough to know that doing logic games by type is probably the single most important thing i can do to improve my lg score. i found the pithypike post and lsat blog's list of game type classifications but i don't have that much time on my hands so i would like to buy some games already compiled for me. can someone give me recommendations on the options below?

i forgot to mention that price isn't a huge issue. the lsat is going to be the most important test i take in my life so +/- $10 is not important to me as long as i get the best materials.

Most recommend : --LinkRemoved-- ... -38%29/358

It is a .pdf so you can print multiple copies. I know a lot of people have said doing games multiple times is important. This allows you to do that without erasing or copying a book one page at a time.

OP, I did a lot of research on this when I was figuring out my study plan, so let me try to help.

The first 4 that you listed from Amazon are actual books. The latter 2 are pdf downloads. pdf's are definitely going to be the most convenient for making copies of logic games.

PowerScore's Game Type Training is obviously going to be a perfect complement to the Logic Games Bible (if that is what you are using.) This would have been my first choice if it were available in pdf form. Perhaps it is now?

Traciela's Grouped by Game Type from Amazon is the same as the pdf in the groupedbooks.com link, except that one is a physical book and one is a pdf. I bought their pdf after I read a good review on LSAT Blog. Their logic game type classifications weren't the exact same as in the Logic Games Bible, but they were similar enough so that I could figure out which chapters corresponded to each other in the two books.

Cambridge's Logic Games by Type from Amazon is almost the same as the pdf in the cambridgelsat.com link, except that one is a physical book with games of preptests 1-20 and the other is a pdf with games of preptests 1-38. To be fair, I didn't want to do games by type from all 38 preptests so I didn't really consider them. But when I looked at their logic game type classifications they seemed a bit confusing and not easily transferable to the Logic Games Bible. Maybe if you are learning from Atlas or another company you will understand their classification system better than I did.

I haven't heard much about the Ace The LSAT Logic Games book. I don't think everything in there is from actual preptests, so I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm using a combination of Manhattan and PowerScore books. For logic games my main book is the LGB.

Does anyone have a list comparing the different game type classifications used by each prep company?
