for LG

Postby am060459 » Thu Jan 21, 2010 1:20 am

im pretty good at LG right now (-3 on average). i usually end the LG section with 2 mins. im taking the june lsat and plan to order the LG bundle from (152 games that are grouped [http://www.cambridgelsat.com/product/lsat/by_bundle/83]) just to stay current with LG.

my question is, is it to much to do 20 LG a day once a week as prep?

i plan on starting mid-Feb and doing 20 LG a day once a week will take me til end of March leaving April and May for PT'ing.

is there any reason why you want to do 20 lg one day per week instead of doing 4 logic games a day 5 times a week, or something similar to that?

lol true but i specifically left the other days for LR and RC (study 4 days a week [2 for LR, 1 for RC and 1 for LG]). i guess i could do that and focus more on the others as they are my weakeness (esp RC).

yeah, I would def recommend not doing 20 lg a day if you can avoid it. I would think that one would learn more effectively by doing 4 logic games a day. doing 20 a day just seems to scream burnout. Its kinda like craming for a test...you just learn better when you go at a solid steady pace, and at a pace that doesnt burn you out. Chances are by the time you get to you twentieth logic game you wont be on top of your game and you may pick up bad habits or miss key deductions. at that point, your compeltely negating the point of studying and building the skills necessary.

stick to normal schedules, do a sections or two a day (4-8 games) and give time to log reasoning and reading comp too.

i've just started studying but i think it does help when i do like 10 games of the same type in a row. i can finish the 10th game a lot faster than i can finish the 1st game probably because of the repetition. i think this only works with games of the same type though because i would get burnt out doing entire lg sections back to back.
