logic games question

Postby maniac0788 » Wed Jan 19, 2011 9:38 pm

Hello all,

How do you guys fix the rules for a logic game in your mind at the beginning of the game and manage not to forget them? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Use diagramming to transform them from language rules to visual rules. That's the only way they'll have any meaning.

This. Logic games was my best section ever since my diagnostic (which, since it is the easiest section to improve upon, called for a lot more work on my end in improving my overall score), and even though I could usually remember most of the rules in my head, I found that when I made a mistake it was usually because I didn't bother to write it down, and forgot about it.

This way, little memorization is required.

This advice really cannot be emphasized enough.

And look at them frequently! Sometimes people write them down and then forget to look at the notes that they've made.
