Which book are we talking about?

In general, LSAT LR is quite similar to GMAT CR, if you stick to the common GMAT questions--Assumption, Strengthen/Weaken, and Inference/Conclusion. Some of the related topics are good, too--Flaw, Evaluate the Argument, Analyze Argument Structure, & Explain a Situation. However, these less common types show up more on the LSAT. The LSAT also deals more with very abstract reasoning and conditional logic (If-Then statements). It also has more problems asking you to match the reasoning (pick another argument with the same structure) or explain what two parties agree or disagree about. This is all good for your reasoning skills, but it may not pay off directly in a great GMAT score. Use the rare stuff sparingly and don't worry about the farthest-out material, and you'll have a nice source of tough CR problems.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the posts.

I was refering to the Powerscore Logical Reasononing Bible for the LSAT exam. To be more specific, Conditional Reasoning is a chapter in the LR bible is not relevant to the GMAT exam could be skipped. I wanted to know if anybody had a ready list of chapters they would advice me to skip. I also found that the problems in some chapters overlap with the Powerscore for Critical Reasoning. So, it maybe a overkill doing both. So, the best case would be to find an optimum number of chapters from both to master before the exam.

One last note, I found that neither the Critical Reasoning Bible nor the Logical Reasoning Bible from Powerscore deal with the BOLD FACED types which are pretty tricky to deal with on the GMAT and also an upcoming question type.

"Method of reasoning" deals with something analogous. It is enough to get your concepts right for bold face CR. You can use "LSAT Prep Test/OG/Gprep/Paper Tests" for practice questions.

If you are concerned with Bold Face, Visit e-gmat website and take free preview of their CR course _ Bold Face section. You get to practice more than 10 -12 bold faced questions too with associated application / practice file.
Also I agree with fluke, Power score CR does deal with method of reasoning that is adequate to tackle boldface , however it has only two questions for practice. So again you can use bold face application file e-gmat CR for more practice.

Maybe it's just me, but I thought the Powerscore Crtical Reasoning Bible was unbelievably good and definitely more than enough to do extremely well on this section of the test. I didn't feel the need to go into any LSAT materials as extra practice. I would consider just sticking to GMAT-specific materials. Again, just my opinion.
