Which books should I invest in

Postby Secretjuly » Mon Feb 02, 2015 2:11 pm

I'm a Junior in college and I'm taking the LSAT in October this year. My plan is to start studying during this semester and dedicate a huge portion of my summer to studying the LSAT. Then in the fall I am going to take a light course load and study till the test.

I was wondering which books I should invest in. I hear a lot of differing opinions on which powerscore bibles are better or just study the Manhattan LSAT. If anyone who replies could give a quick explanation on the books it would be really helpful

Right now I've been thinking
1. Powerscore Logic Games bible
2. The Manhattan LSAT bundle with the LG,LR, and RC
3. The LSAT trainer (I don't know much about it, but I hear a lot of people talk about it)

Then onto the practice tests, I know people buy the sets of 10 is it helpful to buy all of them or just a certain few sets?

Lastly, which cambridge packets should I get.

Thanks everyone, and after reading the overheard at the LSAT thread I'm glad I found the bubble TLS is in! Heres to studying and great score

Would you recommend getting the Manhattan logic games bible after reading through the Powerscore bible? I heard that their are some games that the Manhattan explains better

I think that'd be unnecessary. PS does a good job. And then 7sage refines your skills.

Probably not. The CW is that Powerscore + 7Sage is the way to go. I've never used Manhattan LG though, so I can't say for sure. If getting all 3 Manhattan books at once wouldn't be an added cost burden than just getting Manhattan LR+RC, then go for it I guess.

Yes! It's great that they provide that! It really helped me learn LG in the beginning.

i went through powerscore and manhattan LR and then trainer. i thought the trainer was a game changer for me in terms of LR, but wasn't special for LG or RC. that said it could be sufficient to score well on those sections, but i didn't really use it for that
