More PowerScore Books04.10.11

I had my trusty LSAT Logic Games Bible at work when some girl came up to me to talk to me about it.  Apparently she had just taken the LSAT in February and she got the same book.  She told me she loved the book and got the other “Bible” books by PowerScore.  I didn’t know they had other books.

I mentioned to her that I was going to take the Steven Klein prep course, and asked if she took any course.  She said she took the Kaplan course and she thought it was okay, but she heard Steven Klein was the better class.

I went home, looked up the books on Amazon and put it on order.  The one book didn’t review as well as the Logic Games book, and now that I’ve read through them a bit, I can see why.  The problem is, it’s really hard to teach reading skills, so I’m not sure there really is a great way to go about this.  They can’t just give you a list of hard and fast rules you should do fine.  You have to actually be able to digest a lot of dry material.

The new books I picked up are LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible and The PowerScore LSAT Reading Comprehension Bible.  I will do a better review on them once I’ve had a chance to work through them.

PowerScore Book04.05.11

I’ve been working my way through LSAT Logic Games Bible.  I really love this book.  On my first practice test that I took, I did really poorly on the Logic Games section.  I was a class shy from a math minor, so I used all sorts of math notation on the test thinking that’s way the logic section is a about.  It’s not.  It feels like it’s 90 percent charting things correctly.

LSAT Prep Books03.05.11

I bought a ridiculous amount of books with the original intention of skipping LSAT prep course.  I was talked out of skipping the prep course by my best friend.  I’m pleased with the books, but I’m grateful for his advice.

My initial list of books I bought from Amazon are the official LSAT books.  Don’t make the same mistake I did by ordering both The Official LSAT Handbook and The Official LSAT SuperPrep, the second book is an expanded version of the first.  I also picked up all the old compiled LSAT PrepTests books:

  1. 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests
  2. 10 More Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests
  3. The Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests

Knowing what I know now, I would skip the first two PrepTests books and just buy the latest compiled book.  Between one compiled book and The Official LSAT SuperPrep you would have 13 tests, from there buy some study guides and pick up a couple more recent tests.  There is a free test from the official http://www.lsac.org.
