The good part is that this book has a lot of games to practice with (which is why I bought it in the first place), and these games use a lot of the skills that are necessary for solving real logic games on the test. HOWEVER, the games in the book don't really resemble real logic games at all - they are by and large far more complex and time consuming and they are not engineered anywhere near as well as the ones on the test (which can generally be solved multiple ways and which have shortcuts if one knows where to look). Because of these problems, the games in this book are likely to foster some bad test-day habits, like taking too long and just slogging through the questions.
On top of this, the games, setups, and answers/explanations are all in different sections, making you continually flip through the book and fumble with multiple bookmarks. Some of the games have so many questions that they are on two pages - something that never occurs on the LSAT. The explanations are hard to read and there are a lot of errors.
In general, I feel like this book was a waste of my money and time. I'm giving it two stars instead of one because it might be worth using to practice the basic mechanics of logic games, but it's basically useless for practicing timing or test-taking strategies.
I took a full LSAT course before using this book, and was still consistently doing poorly in the games section. I tried several logic-game books, but none of them had the sheer number of games with explanations as this one did. As other reviewers have pointed out, there are some editing issues with it. However, this book single-handedly raised my logic games scores from about 13-14 per section to around 17-19, and my overall score from from the 161-164 range to the 165-169 range, averaging over many subsequent practice tests.
The best thing about this book is the sheer number of quality games, and overall (though there may be some mistakes) the explanations and setups make sense and prepare you for logic games. After using this book, the overall similarity between types of logic games really started to click for me, and my confidence in the section soared. If you go through all 100 problems and carefully check your answers, your score is going to go up. For $4 shipped I couldn't recommend it more.
1. The problems are the same style as the ones on the LSAT, but MUCH harder. The scenarios and rules are more convoluted. Therefore they are great practice material.
2. There's 100 of them. You won't find more problems in any other single book.
I would recommend reading the Logic Games Bible first, then using this as practice. And DO NOT WORRY ABOUT TIME on these games, since they are way harder than real LSAT logic games.
BTW, there are some errors, but I don't think as many as other people have suggested. Specifically the answers of Game 15 I believe are wrong, but I haven't found other mistakes so far. But what you really need to get better at logic games is hard practice through deep thinking, and this book will provide that.
