Thanks to you both for responding! I figured I would check into alternatives before posting back so that I would have at least something to report...
@HYSHopeful, I completely agree with your assessment of Princeton Review materials being sub-par. They are. Simple as that. I blew through the material and got VERY frustrated (ask my wife!) with the difficulty of the questions (now apparent that they are not real LSAT questions), and even more frustrated with the degree (or lack thereof) of deconstruction of the problems. All in all, it's a waste of time. It doesn't sufficiently challenge someone who intends on CRUSHING the LSAT. Last time I checked, no one *aims* for an average score. At least the logic section in the PR material should teach its readers enough logic to understand that with only moderate preparation one should not expect an exceptional result. I anted up, joined Amazon Prime, forked out some cash for overnight shipping and did the right thing.
I bought the suite of PowerScore materials (workbooks and "bibles"), and they are MUCH better. Far more intensive in terms of deconstruction, explanation of logic, attention to detail... it's all about gaining a marginal edge... and another marginal edge... etc. Very impressed. After a few days I'm about 1/4 of the way through the Logical Reasoning Bible and I must say it's a GREAT resource.
The logical reasoning section of the Princeton Review book is around 100 pages of moderately challenging (about a 1.5-2 out of 5), the PowerScore Logical Reasoning Bible is over 550 pages. I'm all for brevity and conciseness of language (not so much on the forum, apparently?) but that's an irreconcilable difference.
Since I haven't taken the LSAT yet, my score is yet to tell the true efficacy of the "Bibles" but I am getting noticeably faster and more accurate. And for someone like me, that is MUCH more motivating than a false sense of confidence doing lesser difficulty questions.
And all-in-all, I shelled out about $240 bucks for overnight shipping and all the "Bibles" and workbooks. Considering the impact of the LSAT on school admissions and thereby long-term earning potential, it's a worthwhile expenditure.
I hope this helps others from making the same mistake.
HYSHopeful, and thank YOU for being up-front and helping to catalyze my decision to jump ship sooner rather than later on the PR materials. I'm taking the LSAT in June so a few days waste can be VERY significant.
All the best!
