Lots of useful info here. I'm probably going to buy LR, but it looks very expensive. Too expensive.

The price is the main problem with it for me.

I can vouch for the LSAT CR bible - there's a wealth of information about how to tackle CR problems in that book. Frankly, if you can read the first 5-6 or so chapters, understand and implement every technique in those chapters - you'll hit a jackpot in GMAT CR. Not to belittle other books but the CR bible is a joy to read as well.

No clue about the RC book - I need to take a look at that sometime.

some are saying that the LSAT and the GMAT powerscore LSAT CR Bibles are exactly the same. In the answer i quoted, pleonasm is saying that there is a wealth of info in LSAT CR on how to tackle CR questions. Is this info also present in the GMAR CR?

I did some LSAT practice tests to help me with my verbal. LSAT RC's are super loonnngggg.. The LSAT LR's are a lot tougher, but I don't think they resemble the GMAT CR that well. If you want to improve your RC, I would definitely recommend LSAT RC's. Stick to the LSAC material though.

Are LSAT RC passages/questions similar to GMAT?

LSAT passages are much longer and, I find, more complex. The question difficulty for both is roughly the same, though I have encountered a few LSAT RC questions that are very hard. Also, the LSAT includes topics not tested on the GMAT, such as law.

With that said, I think LSAT questions are good practice.

Is it true that GMAT does not use LAW topics on RC?
I've spent a couple evenings struggling with LSAT's law topics
