Book sales, auctions, trades, etc. / Powerscore coursebooks swap
« on: June 18, 2005, 06:30:37 PM »

I have Powerscore's full-length coursebooks and would like to see if anyone wants to swap them for CFA exam's textbooks.  Pls email if interested.

You'll get 7 books (they vary in length..just depends on the topics), you'll get access to the entire LRB but only a few chapters from the LGB.  I think you can retake the course for $300..(forgot the exact amount) and they'll give you a set of new books.  My class has 13 students...but everyone gets equal participation.

I think I made the right decision, there were a lot of things that I wouldn't get just by self studying.  If you are the type of person who learns better in a class environment with an instructor talking (and able to answer your questions), this should work quite well.  If you like to study from books, then by all means, just buy powerscore's bibles.

good luck

The site that you were referring to is for the LGB, I guess they haven't released the error list for the LRB, but I didn't bother contacting Powerscore, may get a faster response just posting it on this forum.

thanks anyways.

So far, I'm pretty satisfied with the full-length course.  Got all the books on the first meeting.  I don't think my instructor taught b4 since he took the June LSAT, if I'm not mistaken, so this should be his first time.  But I saw his coursebooks, and they are totally marked up, I asked if that's what he does on the LSAT, and he said he does it only to prepare in advance for the lessons (ie give us explanations right away so he wouldn't have to think forever when we ask him questions).  If your instructor doesn't know the methods of the company well, I doubt she spent the time to go through it herself.  Or maybe she's not good at explaining stuff, ie Powerscore asks for 99% instructors, but maybe they weren't careful enough to choose one that could explain their materials.

Studying for the LSAT / question in LRB

For those who have the LRB, do you think there's an error on pg 156 (ch 6) question #9?  I think LC should be negated on the first line of their conditional statement.  Just wondering if they have a typo or if my reasoning is wrong.

I'm taking their full-length course right now and the instructor said it's not necessary to buy the LRB with our course materials.  Though, the book is made avail online and I felt reading it was a lot of help.  I think some ppl say you get access to the book too if you take their weekend course, so may be it wasn't necessary for you to buy the book, but may be you wanted the hard copy.  Other then that, they advice you not to do too much b4 taking their course becuz you tend to pick up bad habits from practicing on your own.

Um...assuming you are applying for Cdn law schools, I think based on your GPAs, if you do manage to get really high 150s, (of course low 160s is the better guarantee), your chance of getting into schools like York/Western is pretty good (may be have a chance at UT too based on other factors).  Some ppl may take prep course from 2 different companies if the first one doesn't help them improve much, by then, if your scores still does't improve much, then I'm not sure what else you could do. Oh, one other way is to get private tutoring, letting the instructor target at your weaknesses, though, if you claim that you need improvement in all areas, then taking the full-length course (eg testmasters/powerscore, which are recomm highly by some ppl) may be better options.

good luck

In their materials, it says you can retake the full length course for $275 and they'll give you new books too.  There is no limit to the number of times that you decide to retake their course...but I guess if it doesn't work on the 2nd try, who would bother taking it the 3rd time with them.

I alright in games, so I didn't really mind not having all the LGB on their website, though I'm quite sure the course materials would cover every type of games that's in their book.  As a comparison btwn the coursebook and LRB, I feel there are something different, but mostly similar.  I didn't bother printing those out, I just read it off the screen.  If there are a few pages where you found extra helpful tips (which I feel are overlaps in the coursebooks), then print it out, but I don't see the need to print out everything (eg I do the drills on a separate sheet of paper since I can't write on the screen)

On the first day, there were 14 ppl in my class.  Then on the 2nd day, there were only 10 ppl left.
