Prep books

Postby jmjm » Fri Jun 15, 2012 8:45 pm

There is a large array of prep books discussed in the forums. I was confused by Kaplan mastery discussed in viewtopic.php?f=6&t=41657. Does it refer to multiple kaplan mastery books or a single book?

If you had to have a core set of books to prep from, anything else you'd add to the following?
a) powerscore -logical games bible
b) powerscore - logical reasoning bible
c) superprep official guide

You need to get some of the actual old tests and take them under timed conditions. The 2007 version is probably the best if
you are only going to get one.

Kaplan to Powerscore

Postby tacites » Mon Jun 18, 2012 6:54 pm

Took a Kaplan class and didn't feel ready for the June test. Would powerscore bibles help at this point? I'm pretty sure timing is my biggest hang-up. WHAT DO I DO

Yes, absolutely - the bibles supplemented with drilling by type. Then, strictly timed 5-section PTs.

According to some prep book threads in this forum (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=41657), if you have to choose only one, then choose powerscore, and then kaplan mastery

RC PSB is the least useful. AR/LR are great though.

Manhattan is the best.

I think you should try the LGB and the LRB. I haven't tried the RCB, but I hear a lot of good things about the Manhattan RC book. Also, look up Voyager's RC guide. It seems like something that can work decently well, as long as you put forth the effort.
