Logic Games...how easy/difficult is it to improve on this

Postby masterthearts » Thu Jan 07, 2010 11:11 pm

I took a diagnostic and only got 153 (3.8 GPA at Cornell, so I hope I can do better).
The Logic Games are by far my worse area. I only scored 35% correct and got 75% correct in other sections.
Spatial skills are not my strength and I'm more of an auditory (vs. Visual) learner.
I figure I need to substantially improve my LG ability in order to be able to aim for a T14 school. I signed up for a prep class. Any chance of improving on Logic Games?
Thanks

Diagnostic got maybe 25% right on LG. And those were probably guesses.

On actual exam, got a -2.

LG is the easiest section to improve. My advice: look at them for what they are - GAMES. Do one or two a day for fun and you will improve. Definitely get the LG Bible and work through, certainly helpful. The best thing you can do for LGs, though, is practice practice practice.

I missed 16 (33%ish?) questions on my first LG section on my diagnostic over the summer and I missed 0 questions on my December LSAT. Buy the LGB and use it as a guide to create your own method and you should be in good shape.

agreed. My diagnostic I got 9 right on LG (so about -17). Four months later, I was getting -0 to -2. It is BY FAR the easiest section to improve on. Of course, when you start you have no idea how to tackle these games so it's hard to expect anyone to do well. But as you learn the patterns, and how to "Draw" the games, and you do more, and more, and more and just keep practicing...one day it will click, and you will be just fine. trust me; if i can do it, anybody can.

By far my worst section on my diagnostic, ended up scoring -0 on the Dec2009 LSAT. This is the easiest section to improve on. If you want T14, you need near 170, and if you want near 170, then you need to ace the LG section. It is free points, basically.

Here is my suggestion...

First thing, pick up the PowerScore LG Bible. Read this, do every drill, etc. Familiarize yourself with each type of game.
Get your hands on as many Prep Tests or logic game sections as you can. I was lucky enough to have access to almost every section ever administered.
Print out/make copies of every game. Make 2-3 copies of every game.
Then, basically just start doing games over and over every day. 4-6 a day, preferably. Make sure you are timing yourself.
Analyze where your problems are and review the appropriate sections in the LGB.
Repeat until you have done every game twice, basically.

I was barely able to finish 2 out of 4 games on time, on the real thing I got -1.

It's not 'easy' to improve, you have to put the work in. But LG's just somehow magically clicked for me after doing about 100 games, and I rarely go more than -2 now.
