Octobers - Will you buy LR Bible?
« on: August 05, 2004, 10:27:51 PM »
Considering the fact that the widely anticipated LR Bible from Powerscore is coming out mid-August, leaving less than 2 months until D-Day, will you still invest in this book?  It seems at this point that strategies have largely been worked out, and it may be a little late for the LR Bible to have much of an impact.  However, I myself intend to buy it.  Even if it only improves my score one measly LSAT point, it has to be worth it, right? (one LSAT point is worth how much on average starting salary? - I know there has to be statistics out there) I do wish that powerscore would have bumped up the release date to accomodate people studying for October though.

I'd just called them up.  If you are buying, pony up the extra 10 bucks for fedex or it'll take 10 extra days for the free shipping.  Damn @#!*.  I was hoping to order LR bible along with the ultimate setup guide.

Does anyone have a orgininal or xerox'ed copy of ultimate setup guide for sale?

I ordered it and changed my test date from October to December. I thought the same thing as you, that 6-7 weeks wasn't enough time to use this tool. Not my only reason for changing my test date, but part of the mix.

Concerning ponying up $10 for Fedex: if you pre-order it you get $5 off the price, so it takes the shock out of the shipping price. Powerscore keeps pretty tight control of these books; you can't even get a discount buying on Amazon (on the LGB), so i'm sure that this will be the only reduced price offer for the LRB.

I will buy this if I can find it.  Will they stock it in book stores by September?

I had planned to but it, since LR is my weakest section, but as I am enrolled in the PS full-length course, it seemed to be a waste of money in my case.

I'm re-taking in Oct and I just placed my order for it today. I'm of the same opinion as the author of this thread-- if it improves my score one point it'll be worth it.

I doubt it since I couldn't find LG Bible in any bookstore.  I ordered both Bibles yesterday from the www.PowerScore.com.
