powerscore LR bible and/or manhattan LR

Postby greymatters » Thu Jun 28, 2012 6:13 am

i am contemplating buying the manhattan LR but i am not from the US so this process of getting the book to me is going to be a big,long and ugly!!
can you please tell me your view (if you have read both powerscore LR and manhattan LR )
1.what is the biggest difference you have noticed between the two books?
2.are the question types ordered in the same way?
3.are the methods used to explain the question types vastly different ??
4.if i dont have manhattan LR am i going to suffer a painful death in LSAT or will i do alright with just the powerscore??
5.are there some question types better explained in one book over the other??
6. in your opinion is there a winner between these two???

thanks for any/all inputs!!!

IMO, Manhattan is the better guide. You could do fine with just PSBs, but if you have time, you should definitely read both (PSB then M).

+1. I'm reading the Manhattan book right now and it seems to be tailored to more specifics, rather than categorizing the fuck out of questions like the LRB does.

The only problem I see (as I'm reading that book now) is that there are drills/questions that require writing. Well, not necessarily require, but it would be to your benefit to be able to write on the page.

Don't do it through an e-reader

Source: bought the MH LR e-reader after I read PS LRB and found there's too much pencil work to be done. This, despite using a very accurate stylus and iPad 3rd gen (the stylii? are still far from accurate as a real lead No. 2 and still have a long way to go IMO).

Get the book in paper. Oh, and if able - get Ps then M's LRB. If I had to choose, I'd do LRB if you're needing foundation. Manhattan if you need polish after you figured out your weaknesses.

So would the Manhattan LR be recommended for people who finished the Logical Reasoning Bible? I'm reading it the LR Bible right now and my accuracy is still 50/50 for the most part and my time on questions is around 3:00min per question.. Could Manhattan help me for that?

Whoa, when did people turn on PWS LR Bible? I have read it and think it does a good job at thoroughly explaining all concepts. However, I do agree that it is difficult to read through, seeing as it adds up to a whopping 400 pages. The only thing I didn't like about the PWS LR Bible was how it dealt with parallel reasoning/parallel flaw questions. They seem to only tell you that these questions are more abstract than others, and then give you severely limited help. I prefer BluePrint's approach, which tells you upfront to make a "motto." PWS tells you to do this only as a last resort.
