powerscore materials (what do you get?)
« on: July 16, 2004, 12:12:30 PM »
I am probably going to take the powerscore weekend class in august, but i am also thinking about what materials I want to buy for my own studying.

Is the logic games bible basically just repeating the stuff that is gone over in the weekend class? Is it worth buying separately or is it just rehashing? Similarly the Logical reasoning bible-- I know it's not out yet but do you think it's worth buying?

I believe the weekend course book has all the same concepts and everything as the logic games bible, but it doesn't go as indepth with practice problems. I think it would probably be to your advantage to buy the lgb and work through it before your course. That way the concepts are more of a review for you. 

As far as the logical reasoning bible goes, I think it's going to be really good. I took the powerscore full length course back in April and the first few chapters were online for us to use.

hey untouchable,

were the techniques and practice problems w/ the powerscore materials pretty similar to those in the logical reasoning bible (or at least what you saw)?

The techiques and practice problems in the p/s materials were similar to the LRB in the sense that they are all actual LSAT questions.   The LGB is partially reproduced in the class materials, however, in the course books, there are more examples of each type of game, plus the supplemental LSATs in the take home supplement. The class materials are 5 or 6 workbooks.  Each lesson has a concept or two in LR that it covers, plus one type of logic game.  The LGB deals only with logic games, naturally while in the coursework, the material is interperesed throught the lesson books.

If the Logical Reasoning Bible is 1/10th as good as the LGB, it will be worth every penny and then some.  My only regret is that its not available sooner than August.

Yeah, they were very similar.
