This post was
BOOKMARKED
Overview:
This book contains three retired LSAT tests. In total, there are 100 RC questions and 150 LR questions. It shouldn't take more than a week to finish the book.

Pros and Cons:
The main strength of this book comes from the RC questions. Those should strengthen your RC skills, as LSAT passages and questions are more difficult and longer than what you will encounter on the GMAT. Plus, both are very similar. The LR problems, however, are just okay (I never noticed a huge difference in difficulty between CR and LR). Still, it's an extra 150 questions. Another factor to consider is the affordable price.

Verdict:
This book is not necessary to perform well on the GMAT. I personally don't think that this book noticeably improved my performance, but everyone is different.

The RC section is good, but that might not be enough to justify a purchase for some. Besides, there are plenty of RC problems available for free at GMATClub. Along with the OG books, that should be enough. Stick with those sources instead.

Thanks for this and I would like to advice you all to first finish your OG's before buying these LSAT books. After your Quant/verbal concept preparation finish off the OG's and then give GMATPREP. If you still feel you need some more improvement then only go for it else revise OG's again.

Just my opinion.

Thanks for the input and clarification, guys! It's great to have different views on this to offer the most information. Kudos!

I hope my input didn't come off as negative, but I didn't gain much from it. But that certainly doesn't mean that it's a bad book. If one needs extra practice with RC, then it's worth considering. And those 150 LR questions won't hurt either.

The explanations are indeed official. But these are official LSAT explanations. For our purposes, an official GMAT explanation is always best.

No need to get upset over that! I simply focused on the RC, while you (I think) emphasized the LR. That counts more as a different interpretation than any deficiency on your part. Besides, you made an excellent contribution by mentioning the price in relation to the quantity of questions - something that I failed to directly address. Thanks!

I think that the book costs about 20 dollars on Amazon. For 250 questions, that's pretty cheap and should be counted as another strength of the book.

But I would like to ask you something, if that's alright. Do you consider the LSAT LR or RC problems more helpful?

I used Powerscore RC Bible and already started some of Powerscore LR Bible. That's a lot for me, so Superprep won't be a part of my verbal prep. But kudos for reviewing!

I am getting a score of 33-35 in verbal. I need to improve it to 40+.. i have done the manhattan guides, powerscore CR and kaplan 800 (apart from OG). I am looking for advanced practice content (700+ level).

Hi, domfrancondumas.

A score in the mid-30s indicates that you have a reasonable grasp of the concepts necessary to perform well on the verbal section, though there still might be some gaps. Which guidebooks are you using and which question types are you having difficulty with (RC, CR, SC)? LSAT RC questions are very good practice for the GMAT.

Hi BM.

First, I used manhattan guides for rc, sc, and cr. the manhattan sc is awesome. But manhattan wasn't good for rc and cr. Then i started doing powerscore CR. It really helped. I think this is the best book for CR. It improved my concepts and changed the way I looked for the answers in the CR questions. For RC, i read a few chapters of powerscore, I couldnt get the book(not available here). But the basic point in RC is read carefully and focus on the structure.

CR: There is no specific area I'm weak in or very good at. I got 5 wrong out of 15 in the test. And they aren't a particular type. In fact all 5 are different.

SC: The "meaning" questions are a bit tricky for me and although my parallelism questions were right, I am not very confident in that..

RC: In RC, main idea(2) and inference questions(3) are wrong. Although i have practiced them sufficiently, this is one thing that doesn't seem to improve. There is significant improvement in SC and CR after practice but RC is not improving.

I hope I was able to tell you what you asked.
I hope the reply wasn't lengthy...

kudos if my post helped.

For me, the trick to SC was rereading the Manhattan SC guidebook a few times and reinforcing the concepts with as many quality questions as possible. Good sources include OG Verbal, OG 13, Manhattan online question banks, GMATPrep tests and question banks, and GMATClub forums. Make sure that you also fully read every explanation - even for the questions that you answered correctly. This helps you to get into the test makers' "logic." Another useful activity is becoming very active on the verbal forums for SC and CR. Answer as many questions as possible and thoroughly explain why one choice is correct and the others incorrect. For CR, the same strategy can be used (rereading and question practice).

For RC, guidebooks are usually not necessary. Manhattan's RC guidebook is mediocre, while Powerscore's RC Bible is overkill for most. Start practicing with LSAT RC passages under timed conditions.

And as you have a pretty good idea of which areas cause you trouble, do your best to focus on those. I know that this is obvious, but it doesn't hurt to say it!

I am trying the same method with SC.
I normally don't read the explanation if my answer is right. Will start that from now. And if my answer isn't right I try to figure out myself which answer is right..
I have reserved the GMATprep material for the end.. Is that ohk?

Many recommend using one GMATPrep test in the beginning of your prep to find out where you stand. However, I saved both GMATPrep tests until the last two weeks of my prep. For me, this was the right decision, but everyone is different. Just make sure that you (1) review the guidebooks until they become boring and easy; and (2) practice and review lots of high-quality questions. If you want more questions, consider the extra paper tests and study packs from GMAC (see the store here). The additional products are expensive and perhaps not necessary, but this is official practice material.
