The short story is that this book is absolutely incredible, worth every penny, and increased my LR performance from getting 15 wrong every time to getting only four wrong every time. BUY IT, especially before you do any other kind of prep. Give yourself a month to get through it. It gives you concrete methods for how to attack every problem type.

The long story:

I had a roundabout way of getting to the point where I ordered this book. I took a Kaplan course and hated it. I did all of the homework and dedicated my life to the course for a month straight. It wasn't working. My score went from a 160 on the diagnostic to a 152, then a 154. The 160 diagnostic enabled me to enroll in their advanced course, but the course was completely unhelpful. Kaplan's methods aren't methods; they just say things like "oh, that is out of the scope, so it's wrong". Well, how do I know it's out of the scope? You don't. Or, you could probably figure it out, but that takes tons of time and on the LSAT you don't have tons of time. Kaplan does not give concrete reasons that can be applied to every question of the same type for determining why something is or isn't correct. The course wasn't working for me or improving my score, so after three weeks (the course was five weeks total), I dropped it. What a waste of over $1000.

I decided to get private tutoring. The tutoring company I used was brilliant for games, but also very expensive and I had already dropped a ton of money on the Kaplan course. I decided I'd look into using a book for LR instead. And I am saying this now to everyone who has not yet started prepping for the LSAT: BUY THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU TAKE A CLASS OR GET TUTORING OF ANY KIND. GIVE YOURSELF A MONTH WITH THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU DO ANY KIND OF LR PREP WHATSOEVER.

This is by far the best system out there for self-study. I tried the other known names (Princeton Review, Kaplan, etc.) without a lot of improvement in my practice scores. After completing the two Powerscore books (Logical Reasoning Bible and Logic Games Bible), I saw a 10 point increase in my practice scores. My final LSAT score was 174, thanks largely to these two books. However, be prepared to spend some serious time on these books if you want to benefit from their system.

While this book is helpful, I found an online curriculum called 7Sage to be much more helpful. This book seems to miss some fundamental conceptual ideas behind the questions, while focusing too much on "easy" fixes to get you to the right answer. While that might work for the majority of the questions, if you're looking to be a mid-170s scorer, you need that conceptual background to get the curve-breaker questions correct. I got that background in a much easier manner and more quickly through 7Sage, and so I'd honestly recommend that program over buying this book. 7Sage focuses on things like the concepts that link principle and sufficient assumption questions, rather than teaching those in isolation the way this book does.

This book is great. I've taken the TestMaster's actual course and bought this book to supplement my learning. TestMasters & Powerscore are very similar in their classroom teaching methods, and this book pretty much states in text what the teachers say. The techniques this book teaches is worth its weight in gold! It has clear explanations and anyone can come to terms with their reasoning.

However, the only bad thing about this book is that it does not contain enough problems. You WILL have to buy other books for this, but this bible covers the essential information required to solving the various types of logical reasoning questions presented in the LSAT.

I recommend this book to people who have not taken the Powerscore or TestMasters course or those who want a supplement to their lsat classroom course for reference purposes.

I have seen my score jump about 20 points using a combination of this LR Bible and the Games Bible -though it did take me months to get there. This is the most comprehensive book by far (it beats the Princeton Review and most Kaplan books as well as all 17 books I got from taking a rival prep course) but be prepared to study it religiously with ample time. At almost 600 pages, you need probably atleast a month to really get the techniques down. The book also uses real LSAT questions.

The LR Bible divides question types into chapters so for example, if you are having problems with parallel reasoning questions you can skip right over to that section. There is also a chapter on formal logic, which is one of the best I have seen anywhere, that the LSAT employs.

This book is the basics. It is very detailed and gives a great solid foundation on getting to know the lsat.

Honestly, these books are worth more than the suggested $49.99 price. The Games Bible and the Logical Reasoning Books by PowerScore are the two best books in their respective fields.

While I was studying the Logical Reasoning Bible I felt like I was cheating. The tips they give you are better than any other book I've come across. (They let you know WHY the other books don't teach correctly and give you specific examples).

If you are seriously considering taking the LSATs than you absolutely cannot get a better studying aid.

Hands Down 5 Stars
