Re: Question concerning pithypike's Study Guide

Pithypike's is a great study plan to use when forumulating your OWN. I understand your questions, because I had a difficult time deciphering how to strucuture a good plan and how to utilize the vast amount of material. Basically, you want to be doing at least 4-5 games a day with thorough review. The LGB is priceless. I would motor threw along with doing practice problems after each chapter. The LGB is not light reading, it is a bear because it takes careful reading and rereading to understand the concepts, at least it did for me. Read carefully and take notes for Chapter 2. As you get through each chapter, do at least 4 games from that chapter's category (Basic Linear, Grouping, Grouping-Linear Combo, Pure Sequencing, etc) then throw in a repeat game that you had difficulty with from the past chapters. Do not worry about time, but at the top of each game note the date and # right and wrong along with roughly how much time it took.
You can make a simple spreadsheet listing each game by # along with PT #. Go onto LSAT blogs website for a great study guide for LG that keeps you on point. I've gotten better only through practice. I used to get to a game that looked totally new and hit a panic mode and these games are known to me as the WTF game. As you get more comfortable with doing several games and utilizing the same attack patterns, the WTF games can be negotiated. If you need any study guides, pm me.

Your questions are the same ones I had that were confusing.

The way I understand it is to copy each game from the actual PT's. In the back of the LGB there's a key that classifies each game from every PT up until December 2008. This same list is on the Powerscore website.

I'm still a little confused on the 2-3 repeats of a game part though. So that's game 1,2,3 and then the next day do 1,2,3 again and just as 4 and 5? And the next day 1,2,3,4,5 and add 7 and 8? Just keep increasing how many games you do?
