The workbook features a full chapter of reasoning drills, as well as six LSAT Logical Reasoning sections presented in their entirety (over 150 LSAC-released Logical Reasoning questions in all), followed by complete explanations of every stimulus, question, and answer choice.
While the LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible provides the conceptual basis for understanding logical argumentation, recognizing the various question types, approaching the answers, and applying other general strategies, the LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible Workbook is specifically designed to test and reinforce these techniques and strategies. This is not a how-to manual, but rather a traditional workbook filled with drills designed to reinforce and improve upon the specific techniques and approaches that will enable you to master the Logical Reasoning section of the LSAT.
The workbook is intended for use after reading the PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible. No Logical Reasoning question or drill in this book was used in the LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible and the material doesn't overlap with anything you will have already encountered.
The LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible Workbook begins with a full chapter of practice drills followed by an answer key explaining each item. The section of practice drills and explanations is followed by six actual LSAT Logical Reasoning sections presented in their entirety from officially released LSATs. There are over 150 LSAC-released Logical Reasoning questions in all, followed by complete explanations of each stimulus and every corresponding question and answer choice. If you choose to do any or all of these sections under timed conditions, this gives you the opportunity to emulate actual testing conditions, allowing you to apply the full range of your Logical Reasoning strategies while also focusing on your pacing under time pressure.
The following Logical Reasoning sections are included in the workbook:

Note: If you are looking for a how-to manual, please refer to the PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible, which provides the conceptual basis for understanding logical argumentation, recognizing the various question types, approaching the answers, and applying other general strategies you will be practicing.
