Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does the PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible use real LSAT questions?
Yes, we believe using real questions is a must for high-level LSAT preparation. The Logical Reasoning Bible features 128 real questions drawn from previously released LSATs.
2. Is the Logical Reasoning Bible just a collection of problems or will it teach me how to understand and solve reasoning questions?
The purpose of the Logical Reasoning Bible is to teach you how to attack and solve every type of Logical Reasoning question that appears on the LSAT. There are extensive explanations of the PowerScore methodology, how-to’s on identifying argument structure and inference-making, helpful drills, and of course full explanations to all of the problems in the book. The book features real LSAT questions to help explain our approach and to provide you with practice with applying our techniques.
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 2500 LSAT Logical Reasoning questions currently in release from Law Services, and we use only a fraction of those in the Logical Reasoning Bible. And, a number of the questions in the book are NOT drawn from the 10 Real LSAT PrepTests or 10 More Real LSAT PrepTests. Regardless, even if you encounter a problem in a practice test that you have seen in the book, the Bible will show you how to attack that question in the most efficient manner possible. You cannot be hurt by seeing the best way to solve a question, and many students realize after reading the Reasoning Bible that methods they previously used and thought were efficient were in fact inefficient.
In addition, the Logical Reasoning Bible contains a number of drills that will help you learn the skills 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 work through.
Table of Contents
book is hands down the best book I've seen for LSAT prep! I have
used Princeton, Kaplan, and Barrons. Your book is perfectly put
together and so easy to understand. I have honestly learned more
in 3 weeks with this book, than I did with 3 months of the other
for about a month using test prep materials from another company.
After taking three practice LSATs I saw no improvement in my test
scores. After studying with the Logical Reasoning Bible for
three weeks, I saw my practice test score increase by six points!
PowerScore helped me to understand everything on the test. The explanations
provided by the book cover everything so thoroughly I didn't have
a chance to get confused. My only regret is not buying a PowerScore
(another company's) prep class and did not feel that I received
enough training on the Logical Reasoning sections of the LSAT. The PowerScore Logical Reasoning Bible has definitely helped
me to better understand the fundamental concepts that underlie the
Logical Reasoning question types and expanded upon the knowledge
I had already gained. "
