I'll probably be taking that test as well depending on how Feb. goes for me. Some advise: just from the extensive drilling that you will be doing on the LR section, your general reading comprehension skills will improve. Thats why I suggest working on RC lastly. BTW I was also never an avid reader during high school either, like I was one of the kids that hated reading-now I love it.

IMHO they are very different in style. I found it helpful to read both. (Which I would not recommend for LG, but for LR seems ok)

Which LG to read? LGB or MLSAT LG?


I read on here that the Powerscore is best if you're trying to break into 160, Manhattan if you're trying to break into 170. I did start in the 160s, but I've always found Manhattan LG to be a lot better. I'd stick with that.

I do look in my LGB for another perspective once in a while, though.

I went from -15 and over time to -0 with time to spare nearly every time just using the LGB and the packets.

Okay, I'll just start with LGB then, read the MLSAT after while drilling or something.

I have 2 months each for RC (PSB), LR(LRB & MLSAT LB), and LG(LGB then MLSAT LG) to read and drill (Cambridge 1-38) after each chapter. then 3 months left for PTs (39-68).

Been on RC now for a couple weeks. Seeing lots of improvement after doing 10 sections so far.

Other Recommendations? Much Appreciated


You've got a good plan going, especially if you're PTing on the low side. You may begin to run out of material pretty quickly, though. 9-10 months is a pretty long time.

Yes, I read both the bible and Manhattan but would still make a few mistakes here and there on my preptests. I read this (which was a very easy read btw) and now I am ALWAYS -0 with time to spare.

Yeah, but I'm entering school in the fall, and only taking 12 credits to study. Same thing with the spring 14'.

How should I go about reading both LRB and MLSAT LR? should I read both chapters that are -for example- "must be true" chapters, then drill?


If you are going to read both, I would recommend reading/working through the LRB, and then reading the MLR book chapter by chapter with the associated LR Q packets from cambridge.

I am pretty sure the games one is the only one with a major difference.

I'm gonna ask Mike. I think he played a role in writing the Manhattan system.

I suggest you buy them both! 1 book = score increase, therefore 2 books = score increasier. :shock:

3rd and 2nd edition LR are essentially the same, but we cleaned up a bunch of stuff in the 3rd edition (the first link, the book with Matt's picture on it), so I'd get that one.

Reach out if you have any questions and glad to have you aboard.
