LSAT Materials... [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2004, 17:30
For RC and CR prep ...I wanted to know the 2 most effective LSAT books...and also the way we should go about studying these books.

I know of these 2 books suggested by Praet..which I already have...

1. Ten official LSAT preptests from LSAC
2. Ten MORE official LSAT preptests from LSAC

Any other books...?

Allow me.

If you manage to analyze and solve the tests in these two books, which is a lot of questions , there is little need for more prep in RC and CR.

Make an Error log of the questions your get wrong.This Error Log will tell you what mistakes you are doing and you can develop a good strategy based on that. You should be able to develop a strategy to solve CR and RC questions. Once you have your strategy, try it out on a sample of questions. you might have to refine it a bit. But you should be able to see results soon enough.

Then, once you have faith in the strategy, force yourself to stick to it.

Sorry for digressing a bit.

I thumbed through the 10 OFFICIAL LSAT book and there doesn't seem to be much in the way of explanations for the answers (I could be wrong as I only looked through them briefly).

I was wondering if you all recommend the study guides for the LSAT. Or will those guide just rehash the same tactics as the GMAT references?

Despite not having any explanations, the Off. LSAT book is still very good. If you have any doubt on any of the question, feel free to post them here and see what other people think. No matter what, I strongly recommend you to use that book if you are to improve your verbal

you might not see some of the "LSAT type" questions on your GMAT. But what is extremely important is to develop the skill of analyzing arguments. Once you have your own strategy , it will work for most arguments. Make an Error log and see what you did wrong , why you did wrong..once you have solved enough questions, you will definitely have a strategy to counter these questions.

And by using LSAT's for RC and CR, you are solving that perennial Dilemma or OG first or Powerprep first. We also have a huge database of questions in our forums. Start from day one and study all of them. if you get them wrong, see the explanations by our members. if you are not convinced by that explanation, post it here.

LSAT [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2004, 06:10
Hi,

I'll be taking the LSAT and the GMAT this summer and I think the questions are quite similar (that just a few don't appear on the GMAT that do appear on the LSAT). I've contacted Professor Dave, his the author of both 'the Lsat advantage with Professor Dave' and 'the GMAT advantage with professor Dave'. I was debating on buying either one or both of the books, but my concern was there may be overlaps btwn the CR and RC questions. He emailed me and told me he uses the same questions for these two sections in his own book. So from this, I feel there's quite a lot of overlap, maybe only a few of the types of the questions are not tested on the GMAT. If you do get those 10 actual/more LSAT official preptests, doing more questions will do no harm. I realize some of you thought the setback to the LSAT prep tests was that there's no explanations. I've managed to find someone who had all the explanations, if you want to get further details, feel free to email me at
olivia_xoxo@hotmail.com.

Good luck,

Olivia

On Dave's LSAT advantage: Given Dave's strategies for GMAT and for LSAt are the same, I dont recommend using that material for GMAT. When you go through OG CR/RG, you can notice how ETS tweak around words, which is not the case with LSAT. Of course, these tests are not about *true* reasoning, but more about how they set these questions. Once you understand the latter process, you can win the game. Even though I bought LSAC 10 more tests book and parroted they are good to practice with for GMAT CR/RC, I regret giving such advice! It is a game, and know how to play with each party--be it LSAT or GMAT. Dont conflate one strategy with the other!
