Best Study Tool For Each Section?

Postby XxMVPxX » Sun Feb 26, 2012 10:17 pm

From what I have gathered from TLS, the most highly praised study guide for the logic games section is the powerscore Logic Bible. For the reading comprehension section I have seen a lot of favorable reviews for the Manhattan LSAT Reading Comprehension strategy guide. Does anyone agree with these choices as well as have a suggestion for the best logical reasoning study tool? I'm assuming the powerscore logical reasoning bible is the default but I just wanted to ask if anyone had a particularly good score thanks to a certain guide.

The general consensus is the LRB, but many people advocate the manhattan LR book.

Ultimately, Ive noticed to pick and choose what I want to use from the LRB. I've found that the bible really just gets you going and the rest is history. Hth

Good to know, I'm not taking the LSAT until June 2013 but I just want to start getting familiar with the strategies. I just did my first diagnostic and got a 153. I'm trying to get in the low 170's.

We all are dude. It takes a ton of practice/time, but I believe it can be done.

A Rulebook for Arguments is a great general introduction to concepts tested in the LR section, although it's not written specifically for the LSAT.

I've tried both the LRB and Manhattan LR. Manhattan wins hands down. Their advice/strategy is much better for those who have a good grasp of logic. If you're shooting for a 170+, I wouldn't think twice. If you need a good intro to LR first though, I would go with the LRB and move to Manhattan accordingly.
