I did a lot of LSAT prep but then decided that LS was not for me.

How does GMAT RC compare to LSAT RC? Right now I'm trying to assess the amount of time that I need to allocate to this section. For reference, on real LSAT I managed -6 on RC while on practice tests I averaged about -4.

Should I bother with GMAT specific RC books or just go straight to questions? What type of strategy should I pursue?

Thanks.

If you studied for LSAT RC, then you won't need to study for the GMAT RC as they both cover the same thing. LSAT RC questions are harder because they deal with much longer passages and more questions on them with a smaller time limit. In fact studying RC passages on the LSAT is a good way to get really good at RC on the GMAT.

If you've already studied with an LSAT RC book, then go straight to the GMAT RC questions. You're ready.

i was in a similar boat as you - studied for the LSAT but decided LS wasn't for me. i agree, go straight to the passages and use the extra time to study for other sections, like the quant and the SC portion of verbal.

if you still have LSAT books (especially the powerscore LR bible), use that to refresh yourself on CR topics, but you probably don't need to devote a ton of time on that either. make sure you keep track of what types of questions you get wrong on a full length test so you can better assess your abilities.

Hi everyone I'm studying for both the LSAT and GMAT. Good to know others are in the same boat.

My take:
I'm a lot further along in my LSAT studies but I can already tell that GMAT questions are easier.

Seems like all my LSAT RC drilling is going to pay off...

Thanks. Doing just that right now. It's weird when my verbal is better than my quant (always the other way around).

Got all the proper books based on suggestions in this forum and still have my LSAT resources.

From my experience so far, LSAT RC is excellent prep for GMAT RC. I breezed through the OG book. I was reading another thread where someone who took the LSAT had a similar experience.
