I am about half way through the LG Bible and so far it has been unbelievably helpful. I have major problems with the games (getting just 9-12 correct on each section) which is keeping my score down from my goal of 170. I only miss 3-5 on RC and LR.
Before getting the LG Bible, I enrolled in a Princeton Review class that is scheduled to begin on June 22nd. My motivation for taking this class was mainly to get a strategy for the games as well as get the extra practice from taking 6 proctored exams. From reading this board and others, though, many people have exclaimed prep courses to be unecessary if you have time, motivation, and the proper resources.
My question is this, now that the LG Bible has given me a concrete strategy for the games, should I drop out of the PR course to save $1200? I plan on taking all the preptests on my own if I drop out and I will have no problem studying 5-6 hours a day without the pressure of a course. I wouldn't mind paying the money, but I'm worried that if PR presents a strategy for diagramming the games that is different that the Powerscore strategy this will confuse me and harm my game ability.
Would it be viable for me to ignore what PR teaches regarding the games and focus on the LR and RC? Can I really improve these sections substantially if I am getting merely 3-5 wrong at this point? Does PR present useful LR and RC techniques for people who are already very strong in those sections?
Any advice from you guys would be much appreciated as I can't figure out what to do!
