Alternative approach to pure sequencing games

Postby 6lehderjets » Tue Sep 20, 2011 5:44 pm

I have been using the PS method to do pure sequencing games which is working out well in terms of being able to get the answers right however, when it comes to speed that approach is not working out too well. I'm right around 9 mins for a sequencing game. (Which is longer than I feel should be spent on a pure sequencing game) I would attribute to this to the fact that I find the diagrams suggested for sequencing games to be a little confusing and unclear.

Do you any of you guys have any other approaches or suggestion on how to best to these games?

Thanks in advance.

I did not really get the pure sequencing games. Actually I hated them. I bought the Manhattan LSAT study guide and now, I actually like working them.

I just draw arrows. I dunno. I finish them in about 6 minutes and the sequencing stuff on new games is pretty linear, so I find that the arrows / > is enough. I don't double stack like PS says to or split off into different directions.

I draw branches, rather than the confusing "greater-thans."

Here's my diagram for the rule: "L and Q each perform at some time after P":

Here's a step-by-step approach for a game I wrote (containing that rule).

Glad to hear it. The chapter on that is a free download on our site if the OP wants to take a look.

This is exactly how I do these games. Combine all clues into one giant, branching diagram.

+1 Manhattan really helped me with that

which game takes 9 minutes doing powerscore? Their style resembles mine pretty close --Ill try that game, time myself, and scan my work to see if there's any slight alterations I do that may help you with your timing.

Thank you for that link! I am also terrible at sequencing games, the testmasters/powerscore method kind of confuses me.

Wow using trees helps my sequencing processes dramatically, thanks for the tip
