Best Logical Reasoning Self-Study Book?

Postby FloridaGator95 » Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:15 pm

If you self-studied and did well.....which LR book did you use, and did you find it helpful/easy to follow?

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

the LR Bible and Manhattan LR are both excellent. even better if you can read the Bible first, then Manhattan.

I'm a fan of Simple Formal Logic by Arnold vander Nat. After reading that the LSAT Trainer or Power Score Bibles will be much more useful.

PowerScore Logical Reasoning Bible is a good place to start.

It's fairly straightforward, but I'm pretty slow at LR,
so I'm trying The LSAT Trainer out to see if I get any huge improvements.

LR for basics, then to flush out intricacies like differences between principle questions, and assumption question types Manhattan is superior. I would argue Manhattan is better simply because it is less mechanical and uses a more common sense way of talking about things. I guess I'm biased because I saw my LR accuracy increased ridiculously after going through the Manhattan LR book.

Honestly found the LSAT Trainer to be super helpful here before reading other sources. But as others have said, Manhattan and LR Bible are both good and you would be well served with either
