LSAT CR Questions

I just previewed the LSAT CR question today from the Kaplan LSAT book and wanted to leave a note for other fellow members. They seem 2 be of a much higher standards than the GMAT questions I have encountered. The main differences are

:arrow: The questions stimulus is typically much longer than that of GMAT
The language used is usually more formal and includes non standard vocabulary!!
The answer choices are much more similar to one another than GMAT. GMAT answer choices appear to be more distinct, and hence easier to identify the correct answer.

It is surprising to see how similar LSAT questions are to GMAT questions in the manner in which they are written and the logic involved. When i mention LSAT i refer to the Easy - medium difficulty questions ( Around the first 16-18 questions of the section). I find LSAT questions to be more similar to GMAC questions than many prep companies, the tougher ones are for training at altitude and are great to improve your logic. With the tough questions it is more about LOGIC and common sense rather then mechanical rules and families etc ...

Very difficult identify correct answer among all option.

So, considering all of the above ... is it practical to go through the LSAT questions ... they may put a dent in your confidence ... may be redundant as they are of a much higher level ... or is it that they will help by making us think more?

Personally, I feel that most of the questions are quite redundant... I prefer to stick to conventional GMAT. Altough, I might do 1 or 2 LSAT questions to test my understanding of the various strategies listed in Kaplan et. al. but not bother much abt the scores.

I would suggest that everyone atleast solve the free test from LSAT site and the daily LSAT question on http://www.lsac.org

LSAT questions require reasoning and we cannot get it right without reasoning. You have to say that this is so and that is so and so this is the answer. In GMAT since we are used to questions of the same type we generally know the answers. Any bouncers on the test day can be painful. But if you can solve the LSAT questions then you will see the improvement in your GMAT reasoning. Also do not time solve the LSAT. Just take your time even if it demands 1 hour for the question to be read and reasoned.

My CR has improved a lot just by solving 26 CR free LSAT questions. The same is true for RC. After all Law is unlike mba where its only the LSAT that matters.

I agree with Bhai. questions are too lengthy and cumbersome to be time solved.

Yes. It is true that the LSAT question are more difficult than the GMAT cr questions. However, I believe in the heavy-bat training method. If I get confortable solving LSAT questions, the GMAT question seem very easy by comparison.
