Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does the PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Bible use real LSAT questions?
2. Is the Logic Games Bible just a collection of problems or will it teach me how to do the games?

4. Can you explain the difference between the LSAT Logic Games Bible and the LSAT Logic Games Setups Encyclopedia?

FAQ top 

2. Is the Logic Games Bible just a collection of problems or will it teach me how to do the games?


The purpose of the Logic Games Bible is to teach you how to attack and solve every type of game that appears on the LSAT. There are extensive explanations of the PowerScore methodology, how-to’s on diagramming and inference-making, helpful drills, and full explanations for every problem in the book. The book features real LSAT games to help explain our approach and to provide you with practice in applying our techniques.
FAQ top 

3. If some of the games in the book are drawn from the 10 Real LSAT PrepTests or 10 More Real LSAT PrepTests will that hurt my preparation?


No! First, there are over 280 LSAT games currently in release from Law Services, and we use only a fraction of those in the Logic Games Bible. Also, a number of the games in the book are NOT drawn from the 10 Real LSAT PrepTests or 10 More Real LSAT PrepTests. Regardless, even if you have seen one of the games in the book, the Bible will show you how to attack those games in the most efficient manner possible. You cannot be hurt by seeing the best way to attack a game, and many students realize after reading the Logic Games Bible that methods they previously employed and thought were efficient were in fact inefficient and doing more harm than good.

In addition, the Logic Games Bible contains a number of drills that will help you learn the techniques taught in the book. Between the drills and the real games you will have a variety of opportunities to learn and apply the PowerScore methodology, and you will also have the option of purchasing dozens of other games to continue your preparation.

4. Can you explain the difference between the LSAT Logic Games Bible and the LSAT Logic Games Setups Encyclopedia?


The LSAT Logic Games Bible is a how-to guide that explains the methods we use to attack the Logic Games section, including how to identify game types, how to create efficient setups, how to make inferences, and how to solve questions. The Bible is the essential guide for learning exactly how to conquer the Logic Games section.

The PowerScore LSAT Logic Games Setups Encyclopedia provides extensive discussions of each and every game from LSAT PrepTests 1 – 20, including complete game setups and detailed analyses of the rules and inferences for each game. Every single question is clearly explained using PowerScore’s patented techniques, strategies, and overall approach to the Logic Games section.

Student Comments

"I'm an LSAT instructor with another national prep company. I think the Logic Games Bible is a great resource for students focused on excelling on the section. In fact, it was the buzz amongst my students that led me to purchase the Logic Games Bible for review on my own time."
- Jenny Steiger

"The Logic Games Bible helped me drastically improve my performance on the Games Section of the practice LSAT exams I took. I am fully confident that I will conquer the LSAT as I now have the confidence that I can successfully complete any game type presented on the LSAT. Hands down--the best preparation for the Logic Games Section of the LSAT out there. Thank you so much PowerScore."
- Billy Sanchez

"I am writing this as an extremely satisfied consumer of your two "bibles," the Logical Reasoning Bible and the Logic Games Bible. I just got my June 06 LSAT score back, and was pleasantly surprised to have received a 179. My initial diagnostic placed me at 153, but after working with your two books, I was able to dramatically increase my speed and accuracy in logic games and logical reasoning. Your books are easy to understand and worth their weight in gold. Thank you!!!!"
