The strategies are the best I have run into, but a bunch of the questions have egregiously wrong answers in the solutions sections.

The techniques, again, seem to be great.

I wish I had read the Amazon reviews on here before I bought McGraw-Hill's Conquering LSAT Logic Games. At first I noticed some typos and thought: no big deal. Then as I started working through questions I began noticing errors. At first I thought it was just me. But then the errors became too egregious. While some of the logistic explanations are helpful, the errors make you wonder what is helpful and what is hurtful.

This book categorized and provided strategies to approach and solve each type of "game"and for that reason I found that it was very helpful. However, after finding many mistakes and thinking that I was going crazy for not understanding certain problems, I came to the conclusion that the "helpful" aspects of this book were NOT worth the amount of mistakes that I found. The cons outweigh the pros. I don't have time for mistakes.

i'm not going to say anything new here, but this is pretty much the worst test prep book i've ever wasted money and time on. the formal logic section is useless: almost every other games problem gives you the wrong answer. worse, they don't give you anything by way of explanation. they teach you a somewhat useful method of solving formal logic problems, but it doesn't seem like their test writer actually used their own technique. i'm sitting here doing these problems, and i just spent a good half an hour puzzling over why i'm not getting the correct answers with the methods they're using. their testwriter must be a moron.

the one redeeming quality to this book is the fact that intelligent, studious testtakers will be able to diagnose why their answers are correct, while the book's answers are wrong. that in itself is good practice. however, you don't go into the LSAT assuming that their questions are going to problematic (which is what you'll have to do with this book). you paid for a decent testbook that reliably gives you good practice questions and will allow you to get better at taking the damn test. and also, you don't get to check your answers on the LSAT to see how you're doing - you won't be able wonder whether your answer is wrong because you did it wrong, or if the test is wrong.

stay away from this one.

It is unacceptable for a so-called study guide to be full of so many errors. I purchased this book to help me improve my logic games on the LSAT. All it did was make me second guess myself. I spent way too much time revisiting answers that I knew were correct but that the answer key said was wrong. On another note, there were several grammatical errors as well. It is very unfortunate, because the ideas laid out in the book are well thought out, and could have been helpful. Don't waste your money.

This book is so comprehensively lame it defies description. I believe the study of logic is an important and often overlooked area of study. It is relevant in math, science, languages, music, and in the support of an argument; it helps to understand the difference between a matter of opinion and a matter of fact. I bought this book to use in homeschooling my two sons, ages 8 and 10. My 8 year old found mistakes in the first chapter. I proceeded to find one mistake after another.

If you have no experience in these types of problems, this book will be a huge disservice. Forget the $20 or so you've spent. An aspiring law student (or any student) will waste valuable time and energy trusting that McGraw-Hill, Harvard law grads and students, and the proofing corp will have vetted any errors. With all these filters, the answers must be right, right? WRONG. I dare any of these "CURVEBREAKERS" (the anonymous team name of the authors) to take individual credit for this miscarriage of justice.

Unfortunately, I bought this book from a bookstore prior to reading these reviews. If I had, I definitely would not have bought it. The strategies themselves are okay (although some seem very time consuming for use on the actual LSAT), but the errors in this book made it nearly impossible to learn anything. I noticed a few errors in the "Formal Logic" section but thought I must have done something wrong. By the time I got to the "Sequencing" section, I realized it wasn't me. It was the book! The writers frequently confuse "before and after" statements with "immediately before and after" causing me to get a lot of problems wrong that were actually right. I also found it annoying that they use "None of the Above" as an answer choice since I have never encountered this on an actual LSAT. I'm taking this book back today and getting a different one.

Alright, I bought this book as to supplement the Kaplan books I already have, really just for extra practice games leading up to the LSAT. HOWEVER, I am so disappointed!

First of all, ALL of the examples use the same ABCDEFG variables, which gets confusing after a while, and they never do that on the LSAT.

Secondly, 99% of the answer choices offer a "NONE OF THESE" option, which is NEVER used on the LSAT.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use the formal logic section of the book. It teaches you a technique that is WRONG and they use "and" and "or" interchangably which you can't do!

The examples don't come from actual LSATs and most of them are stupid.

Honestly, I think this book HURT me in the study process. Please avoid and buy the Kaplan Logic Games workbook or another book that uses REAL LSAT questions.
