Editorial Reviews

Review

The Logical Reasoning Bible helped me have the 'epiphany' I needed to conquer those sections of the LSAT, which ultimately enabled me to feel relaxed on test day. I recommend this book to EVERYONE who is preparing for the LSAT. --C. Kelleher

The Logical Reasoning Bible has definitely changed my whole perception of the test and the questions. --M. Toomer

If you are going to take the LSAT, and you plan on studying on your own without taking a course, you MUST, MUST, MUST purchase the PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible and the PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible. Save yourself hundreds of dollars by NOT purchasing any study guides from Kaplan, Barron's, Princeton Review, etc. Save yourself time by getting these PowerScore books as soon as possible. You'll be glad you did, and you'll notice a big improvement on your LSAT abilities. --William Nones

The Logical Reasoning Bible made things so much clearer to me, and I'm so much more confident now because I worked through the book. When I practice on LR sections now, I actually understand the questions and the types of correct and incorrect answers. I hear the statements from the LR Bible in the back of my head, and I'm like 'Oh yeah, I remember this point, and I saw this in that example problem in the book....' It's made things a lot more predictable, almost like clockwork. It makes sense now. --Carrie Gray

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.

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.

I used all three Powerscore books when studying for the LSAT and this was the best; I also recommend the Logic Games Bible (the Reading Comprehension Bible wasn't as helpful, mainly because I think it's a really hard section to study for). It completely changed (in a good way) the way I did the logical reasoning questions - my scores on practice tests greatly improved. It breaks down each type of question and teaches you how to do them quickly. It takes some time to go through the book but it's totally worth it!

I'm strong in the skills the LSAT attempts to measure, so I already had a good grasp on a decent portion of what was presented in the book. However, the confidence I got from working through the examples and the explanations to questions I didn't understand, along with the numerous tips for increasing speed, aided me infinitely more than just taking practice test after practice test. In addition, having a resource like this to study gave me comfort in the form of knowing that I'd done all I could to prepare for the test. If you're self-motivated and brighter than average, I'd recommend buying this and the Logic Games Bible The PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible and skipping all of the expensive courses available

I've written a more detailed review of this book on my LSAT blog. However, I just wanted to briefly note that this book is an incredibly useful overview of the LSAT's Logical Reasoning section.

I've seen students literally go from only 10 or 11 right on the logical reasoning section to 18 or 19 right, and above, after working with me out of this book. It contains dozens of drills and techniques, and it breaks down the Logical Reasoning section very systematically. The LRB blows Kaplan's books of fake questions and similar ones out of the water. I recommend this book to all of my students.

Take it from an experienced NYC LSAT tutor, this book is the best out there. However the book somewhat wins by default since most other books are so bad you are better off not reading them at all (much less paying money for them). The Powerscore book is good, however there are some things you should know while reading the book.

1 The book generalizes. A lot. Which, of course, is necessary since its a book. But as you are reading it you must keep this in mind and remember that not every piece of advice is completely applicable to you. First and foremost you should be approaching the test, and the book, with your own intelligence. You made it through college with a degree, you know how to think critically at least a bit. The LSAT is NOT a memorization test and just memorizing the concepts in this book will do you little good. Instead you need to read the book dynamically and borrow concepts you like while disregarding concepts you dislike.

2 The book breaks the types into sections without explaining that different types are, at base, artificial concepts created by people to make the test easier to teach. Now its true that different question types are asking different questions, but sometimes they are just two sides of the same coin (Strengthen/Weaken/Assumption/Flaw questions are all, at base, asking the exact same thing from you...figure out what is wrong with this argument).

3 This book does not address psychological factors at all. The Logical Reasoning section is not as psychological as the games are, but there are definitely still psychological factors, especially with the ordering of questions. The makers of the LSAT have gotten more psychological in recent years, and this book is rather old at this point.
