At Manhattan LSAT, we pride ourselves on teaching that goes far beyond lecture-style classes. In order to do so, we make certain to attract and retain the best LSAT prep teachers in the country, ensuring that every instructor has years of experience and a 99th percentile score, and hiring less than 5% of qualified applicants. We also treat our teachers like the professionals they are – they’re paid $100/hour (up to 4 times the industry standard), they’re asked to contribute their own ideas to their classes, they help us keep improving the overall curriculum, and they go above and beyond for their students. Our LSAT curriculum is developed by the brightest in the business, and it incorporates what we’ve learned from helping our students learn. Our books are the very best.

I can't remember how I happened across Manhattan LSAT, but the reviews seemed stellar. I purchased all three guide books, and about 30 new official LSAC practice tests. I've been working feverishly since the end of July. I'm happy to say that I consistently am hitting above 167 now, with my few mistakes being more attributed to impatience then lack of strategy and knowledge. Today, I took my final timed practice test before the exam on Saturday and just about nailed it!! I made a 172, my highest timed score yet!! It's without a doubt the extra preparation and time spent using your guide books that has made the difference. Heading into the first exam, logical games was the only section I had complete confidence in, and could routinely finish with a perfect score. I haven't managed to quite hit that mark on the reasoning or reading, but I'll take a minus 4 over a minus 11 I made on the first exam any day of the week!! I really hope I'm not jinxing myself before I actually take this next exam, but as excited as I was to finish so strongly this afternoon I couldn't help giving thanks where thanks was deserved.
Thank you so much for the prep materials. And thank you even more to all of the staff that spends countless hours responding to forums, they made an incalculable difference in fine tuning my thought process.
With great praise,
Stefan S. Friend
Logic Games: This series has the best setup for sequencing games I've seen, but ignore the elaborate crap with the conditional-heavy games where they have you making those huge connection diagrams, especially since newer LSATs seem to have more plug-and-chug questions. I like their method for distribution games where you make sort of a checklist diagram. It's good for inferences.
Logical Reasoning: Where the Powerscore series covers each type equally, they're series is very focused on assumption family questions (strengthen, weaken, assumption, flaw, principle support, etc.) They really nail down the process of deconstructing arguments and finding the gaps/assumptions. If these types of questions are your main issue then this series is for you!
Reading Comprehension: I'm pretty neutral as far as this series' reading comprehension section. All the series seem to have the same bland approach to this section.
I find, when it comes to LSAT study, the difference between all of the series is that they essentially build their own philosophy and approach on top of universal foundational techniques. You as the taker just have to find what works for you. You may love the conditional tree that I thought was overly complicated. The price is very reasonable. I recommend trying it. Also, you get access to their free goodies online which include free classes!
The LR Manhattan books pick up more on the "intuitive" and assumption assuming question types which have arguably gotten harder over the years. Answers nowadays are very subtle and I feel that the books help you gain a better grasp of what an assumption is...rather than "does this affect the conclusion?".
The LG I have not tried so I cannot give a positive/negative review on this.
The RC can use somewhat more work because the reading comprehension has changed over the years also and most of the information here has can be found online. However, the drilling for RC in this book is essential for new test takers so I would still recommend the RC book here.
Despite a few typos in the books, I would recommend this guide if you are starting to study for the LSAT.
