Honestly, I've being using this vid as the foundation for my LG strategy, and it has been paying off. That said, the 10 copies is a bit excessive. But the explanation videos he does for different games are legit, and it's pretty awesome that he offers a lot of them for free on Youtube -- not many prep companies offer anything for free. If you ever get a question wrong, see if he's done a vid on youtube. It just makes the review a lot easier because he goes through not only why the correct answer is correct, but also why all the wrong answers are wrong. That's just my two cents, and I have absolutely no connection to this guy other than I stumbled across his youtube vids a couple of weeks ago.

Was it you that shared it in a thread recently ?


I will agree that 10 copies is a bit excessive, (I've printed out 2-3 of each game usually but I haven't even done the first copy of all that I need to do let alone 3 times) and I also think that his course in general could be helpful because it shows you clearly how someone who does well at LG thinks.

More specifically I guess I'm asking, do you think simply doing LG over and over is one of the biggest keys to success? After seeing this vid, I also wanted to post a thread asking those who score -0 to -2 how many logic games they've done .... 500 +? 1000 +?

Yea I shared it in a thread last night.

What I did was buy this (LinkRemoved), and this. (LinkRemoved)
Then I tore all the pages out and made three copies of each (saving the original). I think it was like $70 with three binders and dividers at OfficeMax. 3 copies is enough for the vast majority of people. What I learned from PithyPike, is that whenever I finish a game, I write the amount of time it took me and the number of questions I get wrong at the top of each page. Then whenever I redo that game, I can track my progress and make sure I'm improving. If by the third time I do a game I haven't gotten 100% correct and my time under 8 minutes, I make more copies of that game, etc.

The thing I like about 7Sages videos is, as you metioned, it gives you insight into the mindset of a -0 LG taker. If you're like me, speed is your biggest enemy. When he does a vid moving through a difficult game really fast, it's great because you can see what shortcuts he takes and it also reinforces what you already know. Finally, I'm a visual learner so videos are naturally conducive to my studying style.

All in all, yes, repetition is the way to go for -0 LG IMO.

10 seems highly excessive, but I did redo some games four or five times until I felt I had mastered them, and I redid most games at least once.

I feel like something of a games ace, but realistically most people won't have 6 months to prep for the LSAT, and so can't put that kind of time drilling in.

I spent about 5 weeks drilling only games in a similar manner but I was already rather strong from the start.
