Best Logic Games Books

Postby bombasty » Thu Dec 08, 2011 8:10 pm

LSAT prep courses are far too rich for my blood. I'm looking for books that I can use to prepare for the LSAT independently.

The analytical reasoning section kicks my butt in practice tests, so I'm especially interested in books that give me the best bang for the buck in analytical reasoning prep.

Suggestions?

Powerscore and Manhattan. Each does some things better than the other. Example, Manhattan is amazing for in and out games. Powerscore is more comprehensive overall

Start with the diagramming strategies in the PS LG Bible. Drill games by type after each chapter.

i had great success with the princeton review book. though the games were not from actual lsats, they were significantly harder than the real ones

As others have said, the PowerScore Bibles are a good starting point for LG & LR. I also found the Logic Game Encyclopedias helpful.

I think PowerScore's In-Out method stinks. As another poster said, Manhattan's In-Outmethod is easier, though a little more time consuming.

Thanks for all the feedback folks. I decided to start with Powerscore.

Keep the comments coming. I suspect I'm not the only reader that can benefit from this conversation.
