30 review for The Loophole in LSAT Logical Reasoning

    If I could do it over, I would undoubtedly read this first in my lsat studies. Cassidy is brilliant and provides the framework not just to succeed/improve your score, but to truly thrive. Read, practice, and internalize this!

    Hands down the best LSAT prep book out there.

    The *best* prep book I've ever read, for any standardized exam ever. It doesn't hurt that it's so aesthetically pleasing, too. Practicing intuitive reasoning is so much more valuable than memorizing question types. It's the most efficient way to take most exams, but the LSAT in particular.

    Almost every review I've read about this book has been positive but I sadly cannot share the same enthusiasm. I think Cassidy tries too hard to ingratiate herself with younger readers (i.e., Millennials). Don't get me wrong, I am all for colloquializing (I know this isn't a real word but bear with me) dense and boring concepts such as LSAT strategy, and I know this is what Cassidy intended with her book. However, she takes it to the point where "too much of a good thing is a bad thing," and her Almost every review I've read about this book has been positive but I sadly cannot share the same enthusiasm. I think Cassidy tries too hard to ingratiate herself with younger readers (i.e., Millennials). Don't get me wrong, I am all for colloquializing (I know this isn't a real word but bear with me) dense and boring concepts such as LSAT strategy, and I know this is what Cassidy intended with her book. However, she takes it to the point where "too much of a good thing is a bad thing," and her text begins to lose meaning. (On a side note, those ludicrous examples she uses about pretzels eating people or whatever were downright annoying as they were so. far. removed. from reality. I think she has the right idea in trying to make her examples more memorable due to their absurdity, but it definitely wasn't for me.) I largely felt that she tried far too hard to be casual to the point where key points were left out. Also, unsure if others felt this way but I felt that there were gaping holes in the connections of her thought processes (the irony is painfully frustrating). I found that I was wasting way too much time saying, "Wait, what?" and having to retrace my steps. (And yes, I was paying attention while reading.) I read the Power Score Bibles after Cassidy's book and the former helped my score so much. This leads me to the conclusion that there are likely 2 camps of people: Power Score people and everyone else.

    I have just finished this book, so now am officially ready to leave a comprehensive review. Like one of the reviewers has already said, I also wish I had found this book first in my LSAT studies. Whatever program or method you end up choosing, this book should be considered the Step 1 or primer. I would plan on spending at a minimum a month with this book, but preferably a few months to really understand and get better at the LSAT. Reading it once is great, take notes, but hopefully glean throug I have just finished this book, so now am officially ready to leave a comprehensive review. Like one of the reviewers has already said, I also wish I had found this book first in my LSAT studies. Whatever program or method you end up choosing, this book should be considered the Step 1 or primer. I would plan on spending at a minimum a month with this book, but preferably a few months to really understand and get better at the LSAT. Reading it once is great, take notes, but hopefully glean through it a second time - just to really connect the dots. The more I looked at it, the more I was like.. ok! I get this! A little background on why I gave this book a 5 star review: I first purchased 7sage about 3 years ago and have gone through the curriculum almost twice. As much as I absolutely love and adore that community (and just renewed my membership because I can't bare to leave it!), I feel like Ellen Cassidy has a better handle on conveying and teaching the information about logical reasoning. Kudos to the author because she is definitely in her element. It's a great book. The first 3 chapters start out really going over grammar and retention skills, which is great because I wasn’t aware of how bad my skills actually were. After going through most of the book, I went back to the first chapters, took out a few preptests and did what was suggested: reading the stimulus, covering it up, saying it out loud and then writing it down (not typing!). I then went back through the questions and highlighted the premises and conclusions in different colors. It really is the little things in this book. Taking those little **time consuming** steps become what make the biggest difference. The chapters of course, have much more detail and go through a lot more than what I just wrote - which is why I suggest it. Everyone starts out at a different level. This 30-something year old (insert hand here) was pretty much at a maaaaaybe high school reading level, if I’m going to be honest. I took notes on every chapter of the book, and then would go over the notes every couple of days. What really impressed me was how well the information just flowed. It is written in a way that most people will be able to grasp immediately. I didn’t get that feeling (at ALL) with the LSAC books, or the powerscore bibles (we are talking 2016-2017, maybe they are better now). So, retention is much easier with this book than other LSAT books I’ve noticed. In my opinion, this book & the 7sage program together are the perfect combination. I feel appropriate saying this as someone who has bought ALL of the LSAC books, the LSAT trainer book, the PowerScore bibles and a few others. I actually found out about The Loophole book in a 7sage discussion forum, where another test taker had scored very well using this book along with that curriculum. And I've read that more than once in that forum. I can honestly say, this is the book that got me over that hump of fear from taking the LSAT to confidence in tackling it.. which is why I am taking the time to write this review; to let others know that it has really helped me & I hope it can help you in the same way.

    I was already pretty strong in the arguments section, and Ellen's explanation of her thought process was quite similar to how I thought. There's nothing really conceptually groundbreaking in the book, but it was written in exceptionally easy-to-digest and friendly language. It was very helpful to see all the different question types laid out in detail.

    Great book! Definitely an unconventional but effective way to approach LR. Ellen wrote the book is such a creative way, that it felt like I had sat down with her and received one-on-one tutoring as I read it. Highly recommend for LR!

    This book is so helpful! I decided to add it into my LSAT prep schedule spur of the moment (after seeing the author talk about the book in a YouTube video), to help boost my LR performance. 😀 I finished the Powerscore books about a month ago and I've been preptesting and working drills (from the PS Training Type books). It's easier reading this book as a 2nd source, vs a 1st source. (And D. Killoran edited this book!!) Especially after the wealth of information in the Powerscore Bibles!

I've noticed an instant improvement as a result just of 'translating' exercises in the beginning drills. Least of all the other pages' worth of knowledge. After finishing the book, my approach to LR is forever changed (improved!) and my section performance so much better!! Yippee 😀! It's also a super fast read because the information is organized so well. I want to give the author a hug!
