Practicing Games by Type

Postby AVBucks4239 » Thu May 06, 2010 12:57 am

I hear a lot of people recommend practicing a bunch of games of the same type consecutively. When employing this strategy, how specific should you be when organizing the games? For the record I have every game from PT's 1-20, 29-38, and 47-55.

So, should I organize them simply like this:
Basic Linear
Advanced Linear
Sequencing
Grouping
Grouping/Linear Combination
Etc.

Or, should I organize them more specifically, like this:
Basic Linear- Balanced
Basic Linear- Unbalanced (Overfunded)
Grouping- Defined
Grouping- Undefined
Grouping- Defined-Fixed
Grouping- Defined-Moving
Etc.

What is the best way to do this? Thanks in advance.

I'm by no means an expert, but it seems to me you would want to practice with the broader groupings so you get practice in distinguishing among sub-groups without being told. This is a logical step before taking full games section and having to distinguish the game type without being told.

I second the broader organization. The balanced/unbalanced/overfunded/underfunded/fixed/moving make the organization process more confusing than it has to be.

Don't do the games from 47-55 until after you have first taken them as full length tests.

Thanks to both responses. I had a hunch this was the way to go but wasn't entirely sure.

As for your second recommendation, I had that already planned. Starting this Saturday I am doing full length PT's every 3 days, which will take me to PT 58 or 59 by test day.
