I'm upset because I typed a long post and then it got erased when I tried to post a link since I'm not allowed to post links yet.

Here's the quick summary of what I had written:

-I got the RC bible when studying for the LSAT. It's not that good.
-MGMAT is better because it has the same strategies as PowerScore, but at least it's focused on the GMAT.
-In general, don't spend too much time reading books about how to read better. Your time is better spent practicing RC problems over and over.
-RC marathons of 20 RC passages in a row are extremely helpful. (Obviously you want to stop and review your answers and mistakes after each passage.) I was trying to post a link to a discussion of this on a Law School forum.


20 RC passages or 20 RC questions?
20 RC passages will have at least 70 questions :shock:

I bought this book because of your review, bmillan01. It's a solid book, but like you said maybe not necessary for people already good in RC. If you need it, buy it. If you don't, focus on something else.

Hello Friends,

Planning to buy LSAT RC. Can anyone suggest where I can get it for the best price.

Checekd out their website and amazon.com site. I live in Dubai, so not sure how long it will take for the book to arrive. Do they send an pdf copy instead?

Regards,
Praveen

I just had a quick question...In the LSAT RC book, Chapter 7 includes Comparative Reading passages.Since we dont have that in the GMAT, are there any special takeaways from that section that make going through this chapter worthwhile?

Thanks very much.

Review of Powerscore's LSAT RC Bible


Pros:
1. Difficulty - Passages are longer and more complex than their GMAT counterparts. At times, questions can be quite difficult and convoluted.
2. Practice – There are about 100 real LSAT RC questions. There are also some exercises developed by Powerscore in the beginning of the book.
3. Discussion – The book does an excellent job at explaining RC and discussing strategies and technique.
4. Product Quality – Although a minor issue, the pages and book cover are of good quality.

Cons:
1. Intended Use – This book is an LSAT guide. Obviously, there will be some irrelevant topics covered. Reading some sections might actually do harm.
2. Price – At 38 dollars, this book cannot be considered cheap.
3. Size – The book is 360 pages long. Granted, a considerable portion of the book should be skipped, but this is a serious investment in time for most people.
4. Style – The book’s content is extremely dense! Some days, ten pages felt like an eternity. I swear, sometimes this book emits sleeping gas. I literally fell asleep once or twice while reading. And this is coming from a person who thinks Powerscore CR is a smooth and enjoyable read!

Overall Assessment:
After reading this book, I am a much more active and aggressive reader. At times, I can anticipate shifts in a passage, as well as identify a potential question source. But a 360-page book at 38 dollars is asking an awful lot from people who need to invest their limited time and money on other GMAT areas. But if you are particularly weak in RC, or have extra time, then this is a very powerful guide.
