do they have explanations on hte books ? or is it like testmasters where they just have questions w/out any explanations whatsoever?
and how much have you marked on those books?
Good questions; I should have clarified better.
The books do have explanations of the answers. It is usualy about 1 paragraph long (depending on the difficulty of the question) and those explanations usually point back to the lesson that covered that particular type of question. The books really are good.
I have written in and highlighted some parts of the books. Mostly in the lessons. This set does, however, have 4 of the 12 lessons unscathed. I didn't mark in those sections because I missed those 4 classes.
At the end of each lesson there is an extensive homework section. I only did the homework to lesson 1 (yes, I'm a slacker) - so the other 11 homeworks are completely unmarked. The homework seems to be one of the most important parts to practice, because each section has about 10 times the questions that are in each lesson. SO, all in all, these books don't have many marks in them. And, yes, the homework questions have an answer key w/ explanations.
On the 4 practice tests, I have not written in the book at all. I will also print out and include an answer key to each test (because those aren't in the books)...
This set is like getting the "Logic Games Bible", on steriods - for each logical reasoning AND Reading Comp AND Logic Games....
If I would have completed all the homeworks, and gone to all the classes - I think that I would have scored over 160.
