I'm a big fan of the tree method myself. Oh wait, that's something different.

Re: Better approach for sequencing games and why?

Depends. "Pure" sequencing games it's better to use a branching tree, for linear sequence its best to do a ranking set.

Also, Kaplan is awful.

That's sorta funny that you say that those two paragraphs together, since (back in the day, i.e. 'pre-atlas'), kaplan was the one staunch advocate of the tree diagram (that I could find anyhow, and I did a lot of searching) and helped me basically filling in one of the biggest gaps that powerscore left for me (aside from matching/attribute games, but that's another story). I didn't take their course or anything, but I do recommend glancing at their logic games workbook at borders, while drinking a coffee and reading their chapter on 'loose sequencing', as they call it, I think.

Re: Better approach for sequencing games and why?

I will concede that the one of the good thing I got out of Kaplan (besides the mastery books) was the tree/branch diagram. Their system for everything else is awful though. I was stuck at 150s using their techniques until I said "screw it, I threw a bunch of money away on something that doesn't work." Picked up the bibles, used their techniques, and still really regret having spent money on a Kaplan course.

Meh, I still think they're overrated. They sorta suck on grouping games, and hybrid type games. I didn't much like their circular linear game strategy either (though it's really not a real issue in modern day tests).

Re: Better approach for sequencing games and why?

With the tree method I can solve a game in about 5 minutes with 100% accuracy everytime.

The Evergreen tree method works for both the june and december tests.....

It's pretty easy to learn this approach. Download the first chapter of our LG book (free download from our site's store) and it's explained there. There's also a recorded lesson. PM me and I'll shoot you the link.
