Hands-down best self-study LSAT Prep
By UTexas Law - March 6, 2005
This is by far the best system out there for self-study. I tried the other known names (Princeton Review, Kaplan, etc.) without a lot of improvement in my practice scores. After completing the two Powerscore books (Logical Reasoning Bible and Logic Games Bible), I saw a 10 point increase in my practice scores. My final LSAT score was 174, thanks largely to these two books. However, be prepared to spend some serious time on these books if you want to benefit from their system.
Absolutely essential for every test taker
By bhart - October 24, 2010
The short story is that this book is absolutely incredible, worth every penny, and increased my LR performance from getting 15 wrong every time to getting only four wrong every time. BUY IT, especially before you do any other kind of prep. Give yourself a month to get through it. It gives you concrete methods for how to attack every problem type.
The long story:
I had a roundabout way of getting to the point where I ordered this book. I took a Kaplan course and hated it. I did all of the homework and dedicated my life to the course for a month straight. It wasn't working. My score went from a 160 on the diagnostic to a 152, then a 154. The 160 diagnostic enabled me to enroll in their advanced course, but the course was completely unhelpful. Kaplan's methods aren't methods; they just say things like "oh, that is out of the scope, so it's wrong". Well, how do I know it's out of the scope? You don't. Or, you could probably figure it out, but that takes tons of time... read more
Don't pass up this book!
By T. Nguyen - September 22, 2005
This book is great. I've taken the TestMaster's actual course and bought this book to supplement my learning. TestMasters & Powerscore are very similar in their classroom teaching methods, and this book pretty much states in text what the teachers say. The techniques this book teaches is worth its weight in gold! It has clear explanations and anyone can come to terms with their reasoning.
However, the only bad thing about this book is that it does not contain enough problems. You WILL have to buy other books for this, but this bible covers the essential information required to solving the various types of logical reasoning questions presented in the LSAT.
I recommend this book to people who have not taken the Powerscore or TestMasters course or those who want a supplement to their lsat classroom course for reference purposes.
This book is essential reading for anyone responsible for minimising exposures and failures within their organisation as well as financial professionals working to produce models of risk and reward ...
