Studying for the LSAT / Re: Best LSAT Prep Company
« on: July 02, 2009, 03:01:18 AM »
I didn't take a class, but I used Kaplan, Powerscore, REA, and (I believe) Barron's books.  I was disappointed with Kaplan after using their big comprehensive book and LSAT 180, but they weren't as bad as many people here like to complain.  REA was absolutely abysmal.  I don't really remember anything about Barron's, because once I started using Powerscore's books I stopped using the others.  Powerscore and dozens upon dozens of PrepTests seemed to be the best way to go for me.

YMMV.  Obviously I can't speak to TestMasters, Blueprint, or PR (although everyone should really check out PR's LSAT Logic in Everyday Life podcast from Andrew Brody... a year after the LSAT, I still listen to it.  I probably will until he stops producing it).

Powerscore Logical Reasoning Bible
Powerscore Logic Games Bible

The Powerscore Reading Comp Bible wasn't out yet when I was studying, so I can't speak to that, but the other two are invaluable.  You'll also want to stock up on as many previous LSATs as you can afford (sold through LSAC).  What I did was to use the older tests to drill individual sections, and the more recent ones for full practice tests.  I really cannot stress enough the importance of taking as many practice tests as your time and finances allow.

I know I didn't really answer your question.  You asked for a recommendation of a single comprehensive book, but I'm not aware of any good one out there.

How am I denying that a-hole?

You're not MBW... a-hole.

Yeah MBW, stop denying that people of color were treated unfairly in the past!

My day just went from mediocre to good because Jeopardy came on.

My day just went from good to awesome because there's a Pauly Shore category.

It's the only way I have a chance in hell of keeping everyone's alts, d-dubbing, and changing screennames/avatars straight!

I appreciate the welcome very much. :) PJC had to yell at me a couple of times before I made it over here, but I found my way eventually.


Huddle House: For those times when Waffle House isn't quite white-trashy enough.

So I got three sushi rolls and a house salad for dinner tonight.  I ate almost all of it and saved like 5 pieces for an hour and then ate them.  All except for one piece.  I thought that I might get hungry in a little bit.  And for some reason I assumed that this one little tiny piece of sushi would just be perfect and fill me up  ???

...and?  Are you starting to get a liiittle bit hungry?
