does it follow that M prep is the best LSAT prep company?

What is the assumption of that statement?

1) 'better' isn't clearly defined, which leads to...
2) There's an equivocation between better/best type of prep, better/best guide, and better/best company
3) There's an equivocation between self-study guide and self-study
4) You're dealing with some questionable premises ;-)

He's right, this question isn't good.

Amazon. WAY cheaper. There are used ones with absolutely no markings. That's where I got mine.

I am only in possession of two (LG and LR). I've gone through all three of the Powerscore Bibles twice. I'm already learning new things from these two books and I'm only a little more than halfway done with each. I didn't buy the RC because I was greatly disappointed with Powerscore's RC.

Unequivocally, yes.

166-169. I've had a few 170+s and a 164-65 as well. But I'd say 80% of the time, I fall in the first range. LRs are pretty consistent, but I'd like to get them down to -1/-2 a section. For whatever reason, the LGs are my main obstacle. Everyone on TLS says it's the easiest section to improve on so hopefully, this will be true for me. It's no coincidence that when I nail the LGs, I end up with a 170 score and when I fuck up on them, I end up in the 164/5 range.

With that said, does anyone here recommend the Manhattan RC book?

LOVED the Mlsat RC book. Literally the only one I got my hands on that is any good.

In that case, going to order it right now.

Dude, Manhattan's Logic Chain method is so bomb. Before that, my method was just chaining conditionals together. It'd work some of the time but often, it was just a pain for my eyes to look at so many conditional statements + the new chains (I'd never erase the ones that were given so it look like I had 6-8 different statements for a game).

I've been hovering between the mid 150's to 160 on PTs. I've only used Powerscore (and a little Fox TestPrep [Boo!] and Princeton Review [meh]). I'm trying to figure out what to add and am inclined to incorporate Manhattan, Blueprint, and now I'm getting curious about Velocity.

I crushed games after velocity, where it was my worst section before. My experience is limited because I haven't seen any bp stuff, or mlsat lg book, but the mlsat reading comp book was great, changed the way I read even if I don't notate as they suggest. Velocity for games and mlsat for rc, and actually busting your ass applying the methods to every passage and game you can get your hands on will net points for sure, at least it did for me.

It's all about Manhattan, Blueprint, Powerscore, in that order.
