LSAT Game type difficulties

Postby lawschool2014hopeful » Sat Jun 16, 2012 12:46 pm

Hey Guys,

I was wondering, if you were to use the powerscore system, what would you rate the easiest to most difficult game type? And how did you improve on these types?

Also, I was wondering are there any particular type of games in the earlier PTs I should not worry about? Because that was the advice for some of the earlier LR questions (Currently going through the first 20 preptests game type training, still struggling with time, even redoing them questions).

I'm doing LSAT prep on weekends plus 6 practice tests throughout the course.

So far we're done with week 2 and we've seen 1d games, 2d games, spatial arrangement games, and one type of game that usually involves two sides of a street.

Of course, I think all courses introduce the easiest ones first, and I think they keep progressing in difficulty.

So far, the way I've improved is by practicing constantly, after I know that I'm applying the concept properly, I start timing myself to make sure I'm being efficient. It is very essential to stick around with what the diagrams your instructor provides you since the whole prep course crew will be using the same approach and it will be easier to ask them for help and understand them.

This is difficult because there are easier and harder games within each type, but I would rate them (roughly) from easiest to most difficult:

Pure Sequencing
Basic Linear Balanced / Grouping. Defined Fixed Balanced
Bacis Linear Unbal. / Grp. Defined Fixed Unbal.
Adv. Linear Bal.
Adv. Linear Unbal.
Linear/Group Combo
Grp. Partially Defined
Grp. Undefined (these are def. the worst)

I didn't really pay attention to the rare games. Mapping and circular linearity just seemed like a bitch.I read through the PS bible and then skimmed the Manhattan book, adopted a few of their things for linear and sequencing. Then I drilled games by type. This was nice cause they were also by difficulty within type. Very quickly got to consistent -0 -1.
