To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Its a good prep book but i wouldnt solely rely on it. He spends a lot of time talking about the ideas behind the questions as oppose to techniques on how to tackle questions. Its also very wordy in my opinion and often important points can get overpowered as a result. I would use it as a supplementary material not the main one. It also take a long time to get through the whole thing so if you are cramming I wouldn’t recommend it
A great study guide! This will definitely help you get a good score for your LSAT and will also increase your confidence. I struggled a lot with Logic Games, even though I knew how they worked in theory I wasn't able to make that translate into my work. This made me so anxious as the test date was approaching. But doing just a few of the drills and reading some of the techniques introduced by Mike Kim, I improved so much and I wasn't nervous about them anymore! It's so easy to read as well. All you need is in this one book!! But you can group it with some of the preptests by LSAC as well for maximum effect 😎
I found this book very beneficial for me prior to writing the LSAT. If you are the kind of person who can stick to a self-imposed schedule, you will too! Note that you will also need to purchase a book or two of previous exams (the author explains why). The author's website has schedules for different lengths of study you can follow if you choose. With this book, I exceeded my LSAT score goal!
Fantastic self study book. Only for those who can push themselves to finish the book. It splits the three categories in different sections to understand the theory and how questions are testing certain abilities. This book in combination with multiple practice tests in congruence with online materials is fantastic for students who go at their own pace and find Kaplan prep courses expensive and not conducive to self study timeline.
The LSAT trainer has good information, it is just presented in a confusing way. It bounces back and forth between sections of the LSAT, which doesn't leave me feeling I've mastered skills at all. Some theory/explanations will be entirely too brief before starting an exercise, and others will seem to drag on. The insertions of comedy here and there are also unneeded. Gave up halfway through and I regret spending two months of study on this book. If you are a straightforward. no-nonsense type of person, then I'd look elsewhere, especially for the logic games.
Yea this book contradicts itself for ex pg 171 says one thing and then on page 172 says the exact opposite, doesn’t fully explain how it arrives to conclusions and if this is something I’m suppose to study from I don’t understand why it would do that, it’s sometimes hard to follow as in you don’t know where your suppose to start and end at on the page because of all the different sections, there are mistakes in the book, I barely took notes from this book because it just rambles with little uh huh I needa write this down, I’m not finished reading it yet but I will(Ughh I must now) but I was just getting annoyed and thought Id save someone else the trouble of having to read thru this thing .... honestly the LSAT for dummies is better just saying anywho any one who has read this and has a better suggestion somehow let me know lol ohh ye when I started this book something told me to take notes on why I like it or not and now I’ll be doing a YouTube review as well when I’m done
great for LR/ RC great broad perspective approach I would recommend this as an introduction to lsat- I like his approach to RC it is very broad scale a new approach not explained by RC bible, 7sage, Harvard ready- he focuses on simple solutions I would also recommend getting this with 7sage - together the combination is powerful and doest contradict each other- rather they complement one another. best of luck studying!!
I definitely agree with the other reviewer about the LSAT Trainer being all over the place. It jumps from logical games to logical reasoning back to logical games...it doesn't seem organized at all. Lots of people recommend and love this as an LSAT study guide, but I wasn't too fond of it. I like the Powerscore books so much better, especially the Logical Games Powerscore.
