Manhattan LSAT & Powerscore LG Classification

Postby pinedust » Thu Sep 22, 2011 7:03 pm

Hey everyone- I'm looking for some help translating the Manhattan LSAT Logic Games classification system into the Powerscore classification system (specifically for Grouping games, as per Pithypike's LSAT thread.

According to Pithypike and Powerscore there are:
Grouping - Defined - Fixed; Grouping - Defined - Moving; Grouping - Partially Defined; Grouping - Undefined; and Grouping/Linear Comb.

According to Manhattan LSAT there are Binary Grouping, Open Assignment, and Closed Assignment Games.

So I ask you- TLS, what is the best way for me to understand the Manhattan LSAT classification in terms of the Powerscore classification and vice versa?

tl;dr: I just finished the Manhattan LSAT Logic Games book- but I'm going through Pithypike's guide for the logic games (3 copies of each, etc.) and would like some help in converting the Manhattan logic games classifications into the Powerscore classifications.

TBH I didn't worry about classifications at all, I just learned and did and practiced them, and I can -0 LG sections. I'm also not bragging, when I first started, I got like -everything on LG sections. I might be important and relevant to know what your weaknesses are, but I think skills for one category of LG transfer to the others. If you really want to identify your weaknesses, just look at all the questions you got wrong and find similarities. For me, some LG questions I have difficulty with are not alike at all; I just have trouble with the hard ones sometimes (regardless of their category). The easy ones are easy, regardless of category.
