LSAT Arsenal

Postby Suits99 » Thu Jun 13, 2013 11:36 am

How does this look for an LSAT Stack, I have all summer to study and am willing to purchase any additional books/materials if anyone has any suggestions.

Powerscore Bibles (LG, LR, RC)
4 Powerscore full-length LSAT tests
2 books that are similar to the bibles that I received from my private Powerscore tutor

I actually prefer BPLG to the LGB. If I was you, in terms of books I'd do BPLG, LRB, and all of Manhattan's books. After the books, I'd drill using Cambrige's packets from 1-38. Then begin PTing. Buy all the old PTs, make a mixed PT schedule from 39-69, work in five sections two months before the test, back-back tests a month before the test, and visit your test center.

I am getting tutored from Powerscore (64-hour package) so I sort of have to use their books. PT's though I do not, how do I go about buying old PT's? And what exactly are Cambridge packets, seems like something I would be interested in buying. Thanks!

Buy all your LSAT materials from here-

http://www.cambridgelsat.com/bookstore/ ... lications/

And you are absolutely under no obligation to use PS books just because you're in their class. I strongly urge you to get the Manhattan LSAT LR book at least. That thing is gold for anyone who has anything close to a hard time with LR.

DD, didn't you previously post your PT schedule? I can't remember what it was, but did it work for you?

I used all three Powerscore books from their class (similar to the PS bibles), Manhattan RC and LG, and just about every PT. Cambridge packets were also useful for certain question types.

No, you don't "sort of have to use their books". There's no reason why you can't use multiple LG books (or LR or RC books, for that matter). In addition to picking up the PS guides, I'd also recommend the Manhattan guides, at the very least.

It's somewhere, I could post it again I suppose if you want. Just let me know. It worked well in theory. I mean, I know what to do and how to answer each question on the test, but I may have fallen victim to nerves to some extent last Monday. We'll see. I fully recommend my approach, however I am slightly afraid to defend it completely since I most likely scored below my average, which isn't exactly what I'd want the advocate of an approach to do.

Yeah, but you're average is somewhere around 177ish, right?

I'd do close to anything to get there.

I just used the word average loosely, I never really did the math, I haven't scored below 170 on a PT since late February, I had more than a handful of 180s, and most of my PTs were above 175. You don't have to "do anything," implying you'd literally take any action to realize your goal. Just put in the work. As weird and anonymously creepy as this site is, the LSAT information here is invaluable, just read the guides, follow them and profit.

If you have a 64 hour package, then you have access to the full length course student center, which means you have every released lsat question since June 91. There's at least 20 practice tests on there as well.

It wouldn't hurt to get the manhattan prep books, too. I found the combination of ps bible and mp books very helpful

Here's a question on using different books together. Should you study, for example LR, based on the questions types and move from book to book or is it better to finish one book ,say the PS LR bible then move to another , the Manhattan for LR? I'm working through the PS now and don't know if I should finish it before opening up the Manhattan.

I was wondering this too, I think it would make sense to finish one book at a time because different books have different strategies. Also this is just me, but I feel like if you master the powerscore LR bible, and just drill LR questions from the Cambridge packets, that should be enough. Then also practice test of course. Different books call the same strategy different names and such, its just too much, keep it simple and just master the powerscore LR bible.

I think with 64 hours of tutoring, its safe to say that you will be fine with just power-score's approach to the test.

Sounds like a dubious assumption, depending upon the discrepancy between your definition of fine and mine.
