Hi,
i've read ur post regarding the comparison between the 2 powerscore books.. nice comparison..
i thought verbal bible has more RC practice questions.. i need a book with more rc practice, but as u mentioned that the powerscore strategies are very good i think i should have a book with nice strategy coz i need to work on my timings for RC. I take more time when i need to increase accuracy more than 95% but that is not acceptable on the test day.. Please suggest me whether it is fine to buy verbal bible in my case and practice more using the manhattan book( coz i have that) or is it preferrable to buy LSAT reading bible..Also, is powerscore sc bible much different and better than the manhattan sectence correction book? coz i have manhattan sc book, CR bible, kaplan, etc.. but don't have powerscore sc book..please suggest me whether it is worth reading that book. i heard those are the best. Please, lemme know whether the strategies used in powerscore book is better than in manhattan book. So please suggest me whether to buy GMAT verbal bible so that i can get the sc and RC strategies from there and using these strategies practice more from 1000 documents. Please reply asap as i am giving test very soon..need help..

Both Manhattan SC and PowerScore SC are about the same - you should not get both as you won't get much out. If your SC's are still low, you should either review the Manhattan Book again or take a step down and drill into Kaplan Verbal Foundations - that book is SC only. If you are an international student - then it is a must.

For RC's - you have Kaplan and if you want to, you can get Manhattan RC book, but it has pretty much the same strategies as Kaplan except more detailed - about as detailed as Kaplan's Verbal Workbook.

Use tests wisely - use them as a measurement of your progress. If you are still not hitting the right marks - you have to go back to grammar and strategies. If it is CR's - start practicing on each area. For RC's - you may have to pick up a reading habit to improve your skills - there are strategies but no tricks for RC's unfortunately.

You can get LSAT book but if you are not hitting GMAT marks, then it will only frustrate you and do no good. If you are not winning at an easy video game - why try a harder one thinking you would do better?
