Powerscore CR bible [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2007, 10:45
Well I decided to fork over the cash and try out the CR bible. I wanna see how it is and considering I have 22days left I think I have time to see if this book offers a better approach than mine.

I do like my approach, but its not as fast as I want it to be. I figured, why not improve CR anyway even if its pretty good now.

What materials had you been using for CR up to this point? Did you use any LSAT CRs?

Just used MGMAT materials once. I just wrote down in one sentence how to attack the different types of CRs. Thats it.

I think the only tip to improve speed is to keep practicing them. There's really no other secret recipe. However, if you need to improve accuracy- you could always try and diff books to see if they help!

If you have time, read powerscore to be hands-on on tackling CRs
you will discover much more than what MGMAT has given you.

I got the book a while ago. I'm not sure if it really added much value to my preparation. Trust me, FRANkLY, the best source out there besides the OG is this forum . Take your time (let's say about a full week) to go over most of the posts (topics) in this forum. Try the old posts. Really, you're gonna find some very great hints and stuff about CR.

So far the book is pretty good.

However, I feel like the book repeats itself too much and goes on and on about something that could be explained in a much shorter way.


I am dissapointed with the amount of questions at the end of each section, I was expecting much more.

Still much more thorough than MGMAT's.
