Which books should I buy?

Postby ojalili1990 » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:55 am

I took the exam this past October, and am planning on retaking this June. I want to start my own strategy this time to get passed this torture once and for all. I am looking at the Powerscore LSAT Bibles everyone talks about. There is the option of the Trilogy pack (LG, LR, RC) and also Trilogy Practice pack which includes workbooks for each section type.

Which one do you guys recommend? Are there any other ones out there? Will there be enough strategy explanation and practice within these Bible books? Do these specific books provide proven success?

Thanks in advance

If you use the search function, I'm sure you'll find more information. My picks are: LSAT Trainer, Manhattan Guides, and PS LGB. You can't go wrong with those.

Don't use PS LR, use Manhattan instead

Thanks for the replies. For LG I guess I'll go with the PS bible. And then I'll go with the LSAT trainer and a few manhattans

Thanks for the suggestions. I just ordered LSAT trainer. Somebody said that the same author helped write the Manhattan guides. I already have the powerscore bibles. Do you think it would be redundant to order the manhattan guides?

I am a retaker and need to improve on LR which is my weakest area. Any advice on how to improve there?

Not redundant unless you are already scoring perfectly. I find the approach between PS/Manhattan to be pretty different.

Manhattan LR is pretty helpful.

Where you say drill packets 1-38 from Cambridge, do you mean the drilling package for all of them including the reading comp, logical reasoning, and games together?
