Someone from another gmat website stated that Powerscore LR is the exact same as the CR version, except that the former has more chapters. Can anyone verify this? I browsed through the LR bible and did notice that there was a certain level of overlap.

As I have already completed the CR book, I doubt that the LR guide will be of much value for me at this stage. Still, it seems like an interesting question.

i moved this to the main forum where you might get more views (the other one is principally used for specific CR problems / answers).

as far as i know, what you are saying is correct (the LSAT and GMAT Cr books are the same, except the LSAT one has a few extra sections on formal logic i believe). but others who have read through both might be able to give more accurate opinions

Well, as I still have some time and money on my hands, I sometimes play with idea of using the LR guide. But it feels wasteful, as I have already completed the CR book.

I also thought that this topic might be of some help for those who plan to buy both guides. LR is the better product, but if someone has already used the CR book, then it might not be the best investment.

Thanks for the reply!

That would be great! Actually, I planned on contacting the company to ask this question, but forgot. I will do so this upcoming Monday.

Thanks for the Ping!

There is some overlap between the two books because the general principles of reasoning are consistent across the GMAT and the LSAT. For example, how you weaken an argument is a universal idea, and is not specific to a specific type of test. That said, the two books are different because what is tested on each exam is different. For example, the LSAT tests Formal Logic, but the GMAT does not, so the Critical Reasoning Bible does not contain a discussion of Formal Logic. Similarly, the GMAT has Bolded Argument Part questions whereas the LSAT does not, so the Critical Reasoning Bible has a discussion on those types of questions (and the Logical Reasoning Bible does not).

A Powerscore representative responded to an email that I had sent about this topic. His comments agree with the above post.

Thanks again, everyone!
