Studying for the LSAT / Question on Nova's Master the LSAT book
« on: June 29, 2004, 05:57:31 AM »
After reading several reviews on Amazon.com I've decided to purchase Nova's Master the LSAT or The LSAT Advantage with Professor Dave.  Because of the comments on this site, I am leaning more towards Nova's Master the LSAT (I couldn't find an awful lot of posts on Professor Dave's book).  I am taking the LSAT in Oct, have read through Kaplan and Princeton's basic review books and have Kaplan 180.  (I know, I know, most of you don't like those books, but I purchased them before reading on this board!!)  I will be taking the Powerscore class beginning in August, so really only have time to read through one more book and do several previous LSATs.  My question is this:  When comparing Master the LSAT and the LSAT Advantage I noticed only one real flaw in Master the LSAT- it was published in 1998.  I have taken only 2 preciously administered LSATs thus far, one from before 1998 and one that is fairly recent.  I did notice a slight difference in these two, but am not sure if this is a trend.... 

Is the Master the LSAT book at a disadvantage because it is now 6 years old?  Or has the LSAT changed so little in the last 6 years that everything in the book will still be applicable?  Please let me know if anyone can help (or has a recommendation on which book to purchase!).  Thank you.   :)

Jacy 85- you're right, they don't include the Logic Bible...  I actually called Powerscore to ask about the material.  I had heard so many different things I figured I would just call and get it straight.  There are 12 lessons, each lesson has additional homework.  The lessons and homework are included in the material.  You do not receive the Logic Games Bible.  But, all of the things discussed in the Bible are included in their study materials.  So, they believe purchasing the Bible isn't necessary.  You also receive 12 previously administered LSAT tests: 16, 17, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32, 36, 37, 38, and 39.  The 4 practice tests that are administered for the class are 34, 33, 35, and Feb. 97.  Hope this helps!

I actually just learned about Powerscore earlier today.  I was planning on purchasing their Logic Games Bible and was directed to their website.  After doing a little research on the internet and reading reviews, Powerscore seems to be the best bet.  There are so many negative reviews on the Kaplan and Princeton courses, that I wasn't even planning on taking a class.  It seems like there have been so many unsatisfied students within the Kaplan and Princeton courses.  Several of the reviews advise on not wasting the money or time.  The Powerscore class seems to be better because of the additional course hours and the lesson books they use.  The reveiws also mention that Powerscore gives you 10-12 full length previous LSAT tests.  I was planning on buying several old LSAT tests and the Logic Games Bible, but I think they are all included in the price.  Powerscore is also at least $100 cheaper than all of the other classes listed on here.  I've read only good reviews so far.  Now that I've learned about Powerscore I will be enrolling for the class in Lawrence, KS very soon.  Anyone else from Kansas?
