4.0 out of 5 stars Great book to help you for the LSAT Feb. 14 2012
Format:Perfect Paperback
I do not regret purchasing this book to help me with my LSAT preparation. It explains thoroughly the Logical Reasoning section on the LSAT. What I liked the most about this book is how specific it was. Every chapter starts with general information followed by detailed theory (how to recognize and approach each type of questions, what to look for in the right answer, how to avoid common traps, etc.)and exercises. Also, the book is written in a very engaging manner, which motivated me even more while I was studying. The only drawback about this book is the lack of questions to practice. There are a few actual LSAT questions after each chapter, but not many. I think this is a good book to purchase, but I do not think it is enough on its own to be entirely ready for the Logical Reasoning section.

Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book to anyone taking the LSAT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential for every test taker Oct. 24 2010
By bhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
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 and on the LSAT you don't have tons of time. Kaplan does not give concrete reasons that can be applied to every question of the same type for determining why something is or isn't correct. The course wasn't working for me or improving my score, so after three weeks (the course was five weeks total), I dropped it. What a waste of over $1000.

I decided to get private tutoring. The tutoring company I used was brilliant for games, but also very expensive and I had already dropped a ton of money on the Kaplan course. I decided I'd look into using a book for LR instead. And I am saying this now to everyone who has not yet started prepping for the LSAT: BUY THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU TAKE A CLASS OR GET TUTORING OF ANY KIND. GIVE YOURSELF A MONTH WITH THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU DO ANY KIND OF LR PREP WHATSOEVER. This will save you a ton of money - the book is a HUGE bargain and worth every penny. It will also give you an excellent foundation for learning how to do every single kind of problem, and it is likely that you will not have to do any other kind of prep (ie tutoring or a class) once you read this book. You will obviously have to do a lot of practice problems and tests, but you won't need any other kind of instruction as to how to do the problems.

The main reason I like this book is it gives you an actual method as to how to do each problem type. My problem wasn't that I didn't understand why the right answer was right, it was that I couldn't finish in time, so I a) had to guess on the last five problems and b) sped up and my accuracy went out the window. By using the methods in this book, I was able to cut down on time for these problems so that I now always finish with at least three minutes to spare. The methods tell you how to look at a problem, what to look for, what is a likely incorrect answer (so that when you see it you can eliminate it very quickly without being tempted), and what a correct answer looks like. The most helpful piece of advice they give is that there is an identifiable and clear correct answer out of each of the choices. By using these methods, I was able to figure out what that answer was quickly, or at least figure out what the wrong answers were quickly.

The other thing to be said about this is that it is a long book. It's over 500 pages. GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME TO GET THROUGH IT. Skimming it, or just reading the methods, will not help you. You have to practice them until they become second nature. And you also have to give yourself enough time to actually get through all of the pages. I worked full time while getting through this, and I spent my lunch hour every day working through it, and was able to get through it in just over a month.

You can't expect this to work miracles overnight. But if you put in the time, it will help you increase your speed and accuracy without ever having to pay for a course or tutoring. Or, it will at least give you a sense of what kinds of problems you have trouble with, and then you can get the most out of tutoring by being efficient about it and targeting your weak areas. Or even if you don't get tutoring, you will know what kinds to practice.

I wasted $1000 before I picked this wonderful book up. Don't repeat my mistake. Use this as a first line of defense, and see just how far it will get you in your quest for a great LSAT score.

Note: I have not gotten my official LSAT score back yet. However, I did finish both LR sections with time to spare, and in practice exams, I had consistently gotten no more than four wrong on the LR sections in the past five tests i'd taken.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands-down best self-study LSAT Prep March 6 2005
By TexasEx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't pass up this book! Sept. 22 2005
By T. Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "bible" series is priceless.. Oct. 2 2005
By S. Patel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Honestly, these books are worth more than the suggested $49.99 price. The Games Bible and the Logical Reasoning Books by PowerScore are the two best books in their respective fields.

While I was studying the Logical Reasoning Bible I felt like I was cheating. The tips they give you are better than any other book I've come across. (They let you know WHY the other books don't teach correctly and give you specific examples).

If you are seriously considering taking the LSATs than you absolutely cannot get a better studying aid.

4.0 out of 5 stars LRB's Information Is Presented Logically Dec 5 2005
By B. Beeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I ordered this book, LSAC's "Next 10 LSAT's", and Princeton Review's "Logical Reasoning" book. I've always done well on standardized tests, and I've never been a hardcore studying; so, I was a bit reluctant about going hog wild with the prep books; however, given the importance of this test, I decided to invest my time and money in studying for the LSAT. It has almost become lore that Kaplan doesn't adequately prepare test takers, and I had heard that Princeton Review had a great product; so, of the three that I ordered, I began with PR's book. What a waste of time. Many LSAT prep books seem pedantic in their approach such that you're left wondering if the method merely works for the author and no one else, and this one only strengthened my opinion. Because I'm reviewing the LRB, I won't delve into the nuances of Princeton Review's product, but I wouldn't recommend it. Granted, I didn't finish it, but it didn't seem too promising through the first few chapters.

Now, because the LSAT consists of 4 (FOUR) graded sections -- 2 logical reasoning, 1 logic games, and 1 reading comprehension -- and they all carry equal weight, I decided to purchase a book that covered the logical reasoning as that portion comprises half of your LSAT score. I was a philosophy major at Notre Dame; so, I've had formal logic and felt comfortable with the logic games, but I wanted some work with the arguments portion. I was pleasantly surprised to see how thoroughly LRB attacked specific questions, assuming that you've never had formal logic. LRB breaks each problem into three elements (stimulus, question, and answer choices) and proceeds to discuss the relationship between all three and how that should affect your approach to each individual problem. I found this very helpful as LRB not only offered specific methods for attacking specific problems but also explained the reasoning behind them. For example, Princeton Review suggests reading the question first, then the stimulus, then the answer choices. LRB suggests that you read the question in the order that the information is presented and explains why PR's method is not ideal. All possible questions are condensed to 13 particular types and further broken down into 4 families that are grouped based on their similar relationships between the stimulus, question, and answer choices.

I don't mean for this review to be exhaustive by any means; so, I won't elaborate further, but I found LRB's approach fascinating and very easy to accept since it seemed so, to avoid cliche, logical. As an earlier reviewer suggested, try to apply these methods to every argument you find. I wish that I had purchased the Logic Games Bible too, but I feel like I did pretty well on the LSAT and that can be partly attributed to the confidence I had after working through the LRB. It's over 500 pages; so, pace yourself. I didn't finish it, but I found that the early principles can be applied to all question types. The question types are discussed in detail through the book, and I might've done even better had I finished the book, but I had enough experience with it to suggest it without reservation.
