I found Manhattan more helpful for LR; definitely give it a shot.

Did you drill? Unless you are Straw Mandible, you won't get too much out of reading alone. The gains really come from drilling and (blind) reviewing.

Hey, I drill!

Haha, but for real, Manhattan LSAT is a solid resource for LR. Although I do think that The Trainer takes the cake.

This was true for me

My studying for two months or so was almost purely reading the books and I was consistently going -5/-6 overall with no signs of improvement. Once I started drilling I became far more comfortable with the questions and got down to 0 to -2 or so overall. The biggest difference was with parallel reasoning, as I thought the books did a poor job with those. I went from missing about 50 percent of PR questions to them being a sure thing for me.
