LG Small Error Prevention

Postby PlugInBaby » Thu Apr 08, 2010 7:24 pm

I am trying some timed LG's and I have noticed that in local questions that in the haste of diagramming I will misread or forget a rule (or even fill in the wrong bubble). I usually am ending up getting one wrong on each of my LGs so far. What is the best way to combat making those tiny errors?

if you are quick write the rules down and then the contrapositives and then go to the diagram and of course try to make as many deductions in 1 or 2 diagrams as possible before you go to the questions. It will only take at most 5 minutes and then it will take seconds to answer most of the questions.

5 minutes to write out rules and diagrams is absolutely absurd imho.

5 minutes per game gives you 15 minutes to answer the questions. If you can get it down properly it should literally take less than 30 second per question to answer a majority of them. Once you get comfortable it is easy to get down to ~3 minutes to get all the rules and diagrams as complete as possible.
