I have done about 6 sets of LSAT CR and just gave my first test. I get anywhere between 3-6 incorrect and always have 3-4 questions incomplete and time runs out (GMAT Time, LSAT time is way short!)

I just took my first CAT (MGMT) and contrary to what I had thought, its not exactly helping I think. What seems to have happened is that I have started getting hang of LSAT type of logic which seem rather rigorous , ironically GMAT CRs seem to be less rigorous. GMAT stems seem easier to interpret but they seem to make question difficult on a subtlety rather then by supplying more information logically related.

So in short just my experience but, be careful spending too much energy on LSAT CR after some point it is not helping to me, I am going to now move to OG CR, some I have done before to see how I perform - but for 1-50 I have been doing ok with 3-4 wrong in 25 set. I will focus specifically on last 50 or so.

Anybody else has had similar experience..?

I've had a similar experience. LSAT CRs use keywords to clearly deliniate the conlcusion, and supporting evidence. I find it easier to come up with the assumption for LSAT CRs than for GMAT CRs. At this point I've shelved the LSAT materials and am just running through all the explanation in the OG an from the MGMAT tests.

I agree with a3d. LSAT CR's dint help me much. I beleive OG is the best for CR and RC. Also Kaplan has good CR questions.

I just got the soft copy of the LSAT CR book...havent gone through it yet!

If you guys are right then i am facing a very ludicrous problem, i dont know if i am the only one. I thought LSAT could help me!!

I score 100% on CR on certain occassions and then if immediately after a drill i go for another one i end with 50%!!!! :? :? The scores fluctuate regularly!

This is just excruciating!! especially with D-day 4 weeks away....
Guyz, you have any suggestion or anybody of you facing a similar problem??

D-Day in a week. Just got the softcopy of LSAT today. Holy crap it's 500+ pages long! I don't think I'll be using it. Just a lot more OG and Verbal Review CR/RC questions, and finishing the Manhattan SC book. I think I'll be prepared enough for it with that amount of practice. I only need to miss 2-3 fewer SC questions to get my verbal up, even if I miss a couple RC/CR... right now my record is roughly 6-7 SC wrong, 1-2 RC, 1-2 CR.

I tend to disagree with you guys on LSAT logic being a lot different than the one being used in GMAT. I have done almost half of the LSAT book and it took a lot of my time but now when I am attempting CR1000 tests or KAPLAN tests, I am getting very good results.

It has worked for me atleast so far and I am really impressed with it but again it depends from person to person.

IMO, if you are looking for short term strategies for CR, then LSAT CR is too much time investment for you and will not help at all but if you have time and looking for a perfect score, then give it some time and it can only help improve your reasoning abilities. Most 750+ test takers have said good things about this book.

Thanks
