Blueprint Diagrammig Method

Postby martymcfly1234 » Sun Dec 19, 2010 7:44 am

Hi, I have gone through the PS games and LR bibles as well as a couple workbooks and I am now considering buying Blueprint the Movie v2.0. I was wondering if their diagramming methods etc. are compatible with what I have already learned from PS - paritcularly the diagramming for the games. I have heard BP uses tables which is a method that PS is very critical about. Could anyone enlighten me as to whether or not these two prep guides are compatible? Thanks.

I'm not sure about PS, but I have taken the blueprint course and don't remember making tables for diagramming games, we make tiered ordering thingies and use multiple tiers in a diagram for grouping games, but I've never heard them being referred to as tables. I don't know how much sense that made, but that's the clearest explanation i can give. Although, I can say there are slight differences between BP and PS logical reasoning strategy, I used the LR bible. And by slight I mean some may call them major differences, BP teaches to read the prompt before the stimulus and PS is the other way around, I just picked the strategy that worked best for me.

Also, i should add that i personally went from -10 to -0 on games using BP, but I don't know if that would be true for everyone.

good luck

Wow I didn't realize that Testmasters and Blueprint were opposed on such a fundamental approach to LR. Interesting. I could see how both ways might be worth a try in there own right. Though with most everything else seeming (at least I have heard) very similar I would have expected that to be the same as well.

I'm not entirely sure what these "tables" are, but it doesn't really sound like anything we do. As for LR, yeah, we do the prompt first. I do think it's a better method, but some people go for stimulus-first with good results as well.
