This is going to read like a meandering study journal, which is how I'm treating this thread to keep me somewhat accountable.
I'm going pretty slow and steady. A week later I've finished the first 3 chapters of Manhattan's LR book, although the first two chapters are much smaller and about general features of the test. The main accomplishment was the assumption question chapter. There are necessary assumptions, and sufficient ones, and sometimes both. Necessary ones are often elementary, if I say I am going to go get the mail, its a necessary assumption that my mail wasn't cut off, or my house wasn't teleported across the globe.
Slow and steady for this part, its why I've begun relatively early.
I already find it hard to focus on anything that isn't a question. Sometimes I feel explanations are redundant and long but in the few cases I really want it its helpful. Not long ago I took what was for me a very, very difficult "basic" logic course. Its already accustomed to me to little diagrams, conditional logic, premises, conclusions, and assumptions. I've taken two logic courses now, this second one I think was amazing in terms of LSAT prep.
I'm not looking forward to drilling, too much organization and effort to get problems, and I might just cater to my ravenous desire to do full sections and PTs so I might just power through the book and then start general drilling. I know I should be more disciplined. Along with taking little notes as I read and reviewing those.
Do you all just literally hunt down specific problems in PTs when drilling using lists online or are there some good drilling books of organized problems?
Is no one else using Manhattan? I see a lot of comments about the trainer, and 7sage, and the bibles, and blueprint, but I don't recall anyone mentioning Manhattan prep in the pages I've been following this!
I'm looking at the trainer on amazon, I wish I had it because its shorter and one book in all.
