Good LG section, Bad LR section
Reviewed in the United States on July 20, 2011
If you need help with Logic Games, then this LSAT Prep book is okay. However, if you need help with the Logical Reasoning sections of the LSAT, then don't bother spending your money on this book because it would be a waste of money.
The author was very thorough with this section. Unlike other books, how he distinguished between the different types was very good and thorough. For this, I give him a thumbs up. He gives the reader a lot of strategies to get through the logic games. When I started, I was missing about 8 or so questions on untimed prep tests. After I finished this section, I've only missed at most 5, but that was on a rare occasion.
Here is where the book, veers wildly off course. The author gives you general information. If you have an affinity for thinking like a lawyer, then this is probably all you will need. If you are like me, and the logical reasoning sections are the most difficult for you, then you need to find another book. I would recommend the PowerScore Bible.
The logical reasoning section of the LSATS like logic games can be divided into different types. For example, there are different strategies for weaken questions with conditional reasoning and weaken questions with causal reasoning. This book doesn't discuss them. It does not give you the tools you would need to complete the difficult questions in the book.
This section is very brief. The author does break down the section down by examining the different types of questions that are on the LSAT in this section. Reading comprehension shouldn't be too hard because we've all had reading comprehension questions from when we were in public school.
Use this book in the beginning of prepping for the LSAT to familiarize yourself with the logic games and the theories behind the logical reasoning section.
