It seems that both the Reading comprehension and Logical Reasoning (LSAT) / Critical Reasoning (GMAT) sections are very similar on both tests. I wanted to know if it would be helpful to add in some LSAT books regarding these sections to my study regimen. I just wanted to make sure the LSAT books would indeed help me and not throw me off before I started using them. Thanks in advance.

LSAT CR/RC is definetly more difficult. In this regard it helps you stretch your abilities and makes the GMAT CR/RC easier. But remember GMAT CR/RC is not to be taken lightly, it is my strongest area but is by no means a cakewalk.

Also, when doing LSAT CR just skip 'parallel reasoning' questions. Too difficult and a headache. Plus you'll never see a GMAT CR question that hard.

hope it helps.

LSAT books, particularly Powerscore RC and Powerscore LR, can be effectively incorporated into one's GMAT studies. I used these two books, along with the LSAT SuperPrep. In my opinion, the RC questions are excellent. LSAT questions are considered more difficult than their GMAT counterparts.

I would, however, advise you to pick either the Powerscore LR or Powerscore CR - not both. The LR version is identical to the CR book, except that it's much larger and covers more topics. Purchasing both the CR and LR would be a waste of money.

It's also worth noting that Powescore LR and Powerscore RC are expensive, difficult, and take a great deal of time to finish.

Here are some general discussions on this topic:

powerscore-logical-reasoning-bible-debating-it-61469.html
gmat-verbal-prep-using-lsat-book-92815.html


And here are reviews on the three books that I mentioned above:

review-of-powerscore-s-lsat-rc-bible-86718.html
review-of-the-official-lsat-superprep-96276.html

There are, of course, many more discussions on this topic scattered throughout GMATClub. But these links provide enough information to make a decision.

The LSAT LR section that gave me the most trouble was Conditional Reasoning. If you can handle that, then you're the man! :)

But if you're going to invest in the Powerscore LR Bible, then I suggest going through it completely. It toughens you up and allows you to see GMAT CR from a different and more complete perspective. I don't think that the book is necessary for most people, though. Powerscore CR is the most popular GMAT-specific book on this topic and should be enough. Plus, it's cheaper and smaller. :wink:
