Most difficult Games section, in your opinion?

Postby LexLeon » Fri Dec 30, 2011 6:22 pm

I took Test B today and -7'd the games section (half of my lost points total on the exam)--and was completely surprised when I found that out, because I thought I dominated (-0'd--2'd) it.

What are your thoughts on the games from A, B and C? In my opinion, they're awesome learning tools because they're difficult, encompass a wide variety of game structures and are coupled with LSAC's explanations.

Do you have a favorite or most difficult Games section? Any of those who feel that the AR section is a strength for you, do you have any advice to offer?

Never missed a question on LG on three LSAT attempts. My best advice would be just to make sure you don't get bothered by your 'poor' score on test B. That is one of the most difficult LG sections IMHO.

Otherwise, just always realize that you can take the approach of any prep company and combine it with what other companies recommend. That's sorta how I was able to 'master' games. It's just about practice and finding which system (or combination of systems/personal creations) work best for you.

If there is anything specific you'd like to ask me about, feel free to PM

Lizard/Snake and Dino games were the most difficult for me. In addition, all of those "killer games" and "rare games" were impossible for me (except for circular linearity).

One of the Super Prep ones were really hard too...but I forgot how it went lol

The only one that stands out in my mind a year later is the fucking mauve dinosaurs. That one just baffled me.

Are you sure you didn't mean SuperPrep B? That one has a brutal logic games section. The trees in a park game is an in-out game on steroids in a roid-rage. The fourth game about unfinished furniture is also brutal.

My pick for the hardest game in the current 1991-now era is the third one in PT# 24 (December 1997) about introductory and advanced textbooks reviewed by Juarez and Rosenberg.

Worst I ever did was October 2011 games (only real test I ever took), but I did +4 above PT average so I don't think I'd contribute that to jitters... those games sucked

I though dinos was insanely easy

Waaay overrated -- slightly nuanced in/out setup, and easy pickin' once the basics are out of the way.

Idk what the As Bs and Cs stand for and I don't remember doing a snakes and lizards, but the fucking mauve dinosaurs were killer. so demoralizing. i went back and did it again the night before my real LSAT though and could actually do it, which was a good confidence booster.

Weird! I thought that one was pretty easy once you picked up the Rosenberg deduction of figuring out the introductory and advanced placements.

With you on the trees in the park in SuperPrep B though -- that was rough. Although mostly just due to figuring out the full meaning of the clues, once that's accounted for the rest ain't too bad (but it's probably always like that ain't it)..

A, B, and C are from the SuperPrep book, which contained three previously unreleased February tests from the mid-late 90's/early 2000s.

Ah. also the trees in the parks were kind of difficult. it took me a while to figure out what the clues were saying for some reason.

Stained glass windows from PT62 I believe...not many deductions, lots of hypos. Snakes and lizards aren't that hard if you make the key deduction, same goes for mauve dinos.
