Logic game improvement???

Postby Saltqjibo » Mon May 10, 2010 5:48 pm

So. I'm acing all the sections but logic games. I rarely get more than 1 or 2 wrong on each LR and on RC. But I suck at Logic games. I usually end up between -6 and -10 on that section. The result is that I'm scoring in the high 160s/ low 170s while still screwing up majorly on the games. I've been practicing steadily for a month now. But the result is that I seem to be getting worse. Now whenever I get to the games section I start to panic and usually end up guessing on a whole game. What can I do !?

Have you consulted the PowerScore Logic Games Bible?

It seems like you should read up on mapping and get a better understanding of what the rules and constraints mean. No point in practicing games if you're not confident in how to approach them. Just start from the beginning.


Edit: Damn it yeff you beat me to it :lol:

I was in the same spot as you, acing the LR and RC sections of my PTs, but always messing up a game or two. I just focused more heavily on games for a while--a couple of weeks of game section after game section after game section, throwing in the odd LR or RC to stay sharp on those. My scores got better, so I went back to full tests right before the actual exam. I ended up getting -0 on games on the real thing, better than I did on any other section. Try hitting the games hard for a while; no use working hard on what you already know cold. Good luck!
