Hey everyone,

I know a lot of members of this website use power score or other LSAT sources to improve CR and RC. Does anyone have any experience using kaplan's LSAT books? Also, what time constraints do you use for the LSAT RC passages: do you apply the timing constraints of the LSAT or do you try to pro-rate (based on the number of questions per passage) it based on the GMAT timing constraints? Any advice or experience would be extremely appreciated.

I'll hold my tongue regarding Kaplan's LSAT books, but whatever you do, please completely ignore the time limits on the LSAT. The LSAT very explicitly tests reading speed, since law school requires an absolutely ridiculous amount of reading. You have to be a freak of nature to finish 25 LSAT questions in 35 minutes. If you're taking the GMAT, don't bother trying to move that quickly. Your accuracy will suffer enormously, and so will your confidence.

On average, LSAT questions are longer and denser than their GMAT counterparts, so they should take you a little bit more than two minutes each. As a very general guideline, finishing LSAT sections in less than an hour should put you on track to complete the GMAT verbal section on time, assuming that your sentence correction speed isn't unusually slow or fast.

But don't get too hyped up about the timing if you're just getting started with the LSAT (or with CR and RC in general). Focus on precision and accuracy at first, and then you can begin to pick up the pace once you've developed a pretty good handle on the questions.

Have fun!
