MGMAT CR Book, Any Good? [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2008, 15:28
Hi,
I have the MGMAT CR book (got it as part of the series). I was wondering if anyone has studied/used it, and whether they recommended it or not? Is there a better alternative?

Thanks!

Hi I got that book as well ... its kinda thick (thickest of the entire series) but I didnt find it very useful :(. Sad so say because all the other MGMAT books have been extremely useful for me.

Try the LSAT superprep and the powerscore CR bible.

No.

Just from my experience, I found the MGMAT CR/RC to be a disgrace to all their other books.

bsd_lover,
Do you recommend one over the other? Have you used either?


Thanks much!

Depends on what you require - the LSAT superprep has all the tough questions for practice, while the Powerscore CR bible has chapter and chapters on how to draw inference and other technique to solve CRs.

Reading the question first is the biggest tip for CR. For 95% of all questions, reading the question first will make the problem much simpler. I can't comment on the usefulness of the CR Bible; but, I can tell you that I am not a big fan of most 3rd party guides. In most cases, it is better to do the official material to ensure that these 3rd party guides don't corrupt you.

Ok, so I just received "The Official LSAT SuperPrep" book, what section/sections do I study...is it the "Logical Reasoning"? What about the other sections, are they any good for the GMAT?

Thanks,

Logical Reasoning yes. I would study the OG first for all sections. Reading comp equivalent is good in the lsat book.
