I've read several posts on this site that advise studying the LSAT reading comp to better prepare onself for GMAT reading comp. Can the same be said of studying the LSAT's Logical Reasoning to better prepare oneself for the GMAT's Critical Reasoning? Or is Logical Reasoning too dissimilar from Critical Reasoning?
I am moving this to the GMAT forum.
There is one major difference. There are hardly any strictly logic based arguments on the GMAT. ( if X, then Y.. those types).. A small number of questions on the LSAT's are strict logic based arguments. But the rest of the Logical reasoning is helpful.
In any case, i think the most important questions on the GMAT are
4. Bold Faced -- two sentences are highlighted and the question is based on them. these types are rare , but its always possible that you might see one.
There is hardly anything such as a GMAT type question. The LSATs provide an excellent alternative in that the questions are standardized, unlike kaplan
or princeton. Also, with the OG, there is always this dilemma of studying the OG or taking powerprep. if you study LSATs, you will have good practice. you can then take the powerprep without studying the OG.
hope this helps
