I have heard that Manhattan's LR approach is more intuitive and assumes we know a lot about critical thinking, while Powerscore's is more mechanical, comprehensive, and is designed to teach the basics of critical thinking. After my diagnostic last month, I went straight into Manhattan LR (without knowing this) and felt like I got little from it. My biggest problem on the entire LSAT is with assumption family questions, but all Manhattan told me to do was to "fill the gap." I need help with breaking down the argument and getting a portrait of that argument in head. Manhattan did not do this for me.
I don't have much experience with logic or philosophy, so I was thinking that the LR Bible can help me with this and set me up for 170+. Can it?
Prepare for the LSAT or discuss it with others in this forum.
