Hello all,

In an effort to boost the visibility of the LSAT forum, I will attempt to answer questions posted under this topic (no timetable for how long I will keep this up). So if you have any questions about the LSAT, feel free to ask! For those who are unaware, I am currently in the middle of studying for the March and June LSATs, so I feel I can help those who are looking for some guidance.

In an effort to bump this topic and get the discussion started;

What materials helped you the most during your LSAT quest?

Is there anything you wish you would have known when starting to prepare for the test?

Good questions, mate. And thanks for trying to bump this. Honestly, most people just PM me at this point, so this post is likely to remain dormant.

Anyways, I used 7sage which was tremendously helpful. I would recommend it to everyone taking the LSAT and to those who wish to improve in CR on the GMAT.

And a piece of advice: your goal is to think like an expert, not to reinvent the wheel. This took me a long time to understand. If you try to do it on your own in a new way, you make your life far more difficult than it needs to be. Mimic those who are the best and you will go far!

Shishou, the answer is yes and no. The biggest difference between the LSAT and the GMAT for CR and RC is logical reasoning. By this, I mean the use of sufficient and necessary conditions to answer questions. I cannot remember if the Powerscore book touches upon these (I assume they have to). I used a website that specialized in teaching it, but you can probably these resources elsewhere.

nightblade354 ,

do you see the value for an LSAT test taker to solve OG GMAC CR question, in addition, to the LSAT questions?
If not, what would you consider to be the main differences between the CR sections on the two tests?

Cheers,
Chris

Arro44,

There are some benefits because they are high quality questions, but there are thousands of LSAT questions, so it's not necessarily needed. The difference between the two, simply, is that LSAT uses conditional reasoning. The GMAT doesn't utilize this often, so practice is not 100% analogous.
