Powerscore vs. Manhattan Books

Postby Purple Ranger » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:53 pm

So I'm trying to decide which books I should try. I'm retaking, PT 167's but got a 162. I have the most trouble with the LR and RC sections.

I used Manhattan Prep originally, took the test, then used Powerscore for the retake. I liked Powerscore because they offered a sample study plan on their website that broke down exactly what chapters I should be covering each week, when I should be taking practice exams, etc etc. However, this is easy enough to come up with on your own. In terms of the books themselves, they are both great, just pick one and go with it.

Powerscore - LG (7sage video supplement)
Manhattan - LR (and used Manhattan online forum to supplement)
Manhattan - RC is optional (and used Manhattan online forum to supplement)

My list of favorites books/resources.

Gonna 2nd this. I found Manhattan LR and RC more useful for understanding the test at a higher level. Powerscore was a good introduction to the material, but was a little sparse in explaining the sample questions, which I found to be a bit frustrating.
