Other sources for logic games

Postby Saltqjibo » Fri Apr 02, 2010 6:51 pm

I know that some prep companies have developed their own logic games, does anybody know where might be a good source to find them? I'm currently testing about -6 on LG and consistently going over time by 4 or 5 minutes. On everything else I'm -0 to -2. I want to drill LG and I don't want to burn too many past tests by doing so. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Someone suggested sudoku and I found it very helpful (or at least it felt helpful).

I liked this one when I was prepping back in the day. Doing this book really helps you solidify basic game types. Warning though, there are some typos in the book. Possibly even two correct answer choices in a couple of them.


Sort of unrealistically hard fake games, but I think still, decent practice.

I think this is PR's version of Kaplan 180. Didn't work too much through this one myself.

I would avoid using non-sanctioned logic games. The memes you find in the real deal are truly amazing to slaying mauve dinosaurs.

If you're concerned about seeing all the content, the best ancillary training game I've found is Minesweeper. It forces deductive thinking, and penalizes unsupported assumptions (also called guesses).

Do logic puzzles. For example, solve this:

There are six pirates in descending hierarchy of seniority, who must divide 100 gold coins. The most senior pirate decides how to divide the loot, with each pirate then voting for or against the distribution. If less than half of the pirates vote against the distribution, the most senior pirate is killed, and the next senior pirate suggests a distribution, which is voted upon in like fashion, until either there is only one pirate left (who gets all the coins), or at least half of the pirates votes in favor of the distribution.

Whether or not a pirate votes for or against the distribution hinges on whether he gets more loot under this distribution or under the distribution that would be suggested by the next pirate in the chain of seniority. If he would get the same loot, then the pirate votes against. The pirate deciding the distribution wants to maximize the number of coins he receives (but of course he doesn't want to suggest a distribution that will get him killed). Determine the distribution.
