It's practice sets has helped me improve my overall performance in Logic Games section, but I personally think that you need to go through basic concepts from online courses of 7Sage, LSAT Demon, etc. beforehand, otherwise you'll get bored and confused if you rely solely on the methods recommended in this book.
If the LSAT LOGIC BIBLE was too basic for you.....but the LSAT TRAINER too complex. This is the book to get.
It strikes the perfect balance between complex and simple...something that the other books just don't do.
The LOGIC BIBLE was made for someone who's well...smart someone who can hear a basic concept and figure out how to apply that basic concept on any problem regardless of how hard or difficult it is. It's for the person that doesn't need someone to guide them and show them step by step how to solve different LG problems.
The LSAT trainer on the other hand.....is for the person that is really familiar/good with logic and/or the person that has a year or more to prepare. The person that has the time/ability to memorize 10s of diagrams for the LSAT. The person that can somehow in their mind learn 40+ diagrams and select which one to use for each problem on the LOGIC game in 35 minutes.
This book is for the person that realizes that they need more than just a basic surface view of Logic games (LOGIC BIBLE), but at the same time can't learn every single potential diagram in existence (LSAT TRAINER).
This book strikes a perfect balance between complexity and simplicity.
1. The book provides a specific diagram for each type of Logic game problem you will encounter (In/out, 3D Grouping, Subgroup problems, etc.) so you end up with like 5-6 or so different methods that are easy to remember and easy to apply. Also, they are flexible diagrams that are very flexible and easy to adjust for unique problems you may come across.
2. The book provides real LSAT practice problems for you to test yourself on within each chapter. So you know for sure if you're truly ready to tackle the LSAT.
3. The explanations for why an answer to a particular problem is right are thorough but not so much so to where they are impossible to grasp (Mike Kim's book was like that for me at times).
1. The book provides a "chain set up" that one can utilize for in/out grouping that's helpful if you can grasp it. But that's the thing....it's very hard to grasp and if you utilize it and interrupt one component of that diagram wrong you're screwed.
SO if you're short on time (like a month or two out from your test) I would recommend Mike Kim's or the simple method provided in the LOGIC bibles for in/out games that involve biconditionals or compound conditionals. Unless, of course, you're able to master this chain set up method...then I would recommend using it because it really helps a lot if you can master it...it's just hard to master when you're short on time (as I was when I purchased this book).
