Can anyone who has finished it vouch for the second half of the trainer? Does it suddenly get awesome at the end?
I began my prep with the Trainer a few months back and, in retrospect, I think that time was largely wasted. Since then I have read through most of the LR Bible and Blueprint LG, and found them much better. While the Trainer's approach is commendable in many ways, insofar as trying to simplify everything based on key commonalities between all LSAT questions (classifying LR flaws into those 3 nice categories for example), I personally have found the nitty gritty approach of the aforementioned books far more useful. If I have time before the test, I may return to the Trainer since it might be helpful now that I have experience with the test. But in general I also was underwhelmed and wish I hadn't spent the time with it. I realize this goes against TLS dogma as of late, but ultimately I think everyone finds different approaches useful. If the 1st half didn't do it for you, the 2nd half definitely won't either. HTH!
I feel the same way. Find the book a bit over-repetitive.
