Re: Switching from Kaplan Methods?

Postby flippacious » Mon Jul 09, 2012 3:50 pm

I also took a Kaplan course before finding TLS. The only books I can speak for are the Powerscore LR and LG Bibles. (haven't ready any RC books, and I haven't read any Manhattan books…yet). Definitely invest in the PS books. I wouldn't look at it as "switching" from the Kaplan method, because the Kaplan method isn't drastically different. The main difference is the depth and detail that you get. Kaplan offers a very surface-level understanding of LR. You'll get a much better breakdown for LR question types in the Powerscore book and a much deeper understanding of how to approach each question type. If you're feeling very prepared for logic games, then I guess you could skip the LG bible. I would recommend you read it though. I picked up some ideas from the Kaplan class, but I prefer Powerscore's notation and I think mixing together approaches from each company worked well for me.

My question is whether you guys would suggest picking up the bibles from PS or Manhattan and practicing their strategies for questions. Do they consist of tips/tricks which would help at this point? If so, which books would you suggest?


I read boths sets (M/PSB) and, IMO, Manhattan has more depth, better strategies, and is tailored for high scorers. The bundle is certainly worth the read and the 70 dollars + shipping . http://www.amazon.com/Manhattan-LSAT-Se ... roduct_top


Of course, PSBs are legit too.
