7sage is sweet. I don't know about Velocity. I took a Kaplan course and have the three powerscore bibles, and super prep. I think 7sage is by far better than anything else. I have seen a 10 point improvement and hope to take my score up another 10. Their strategies are simple and effective. They explain a lot of the why behind things. It has helped me get over a big plateau. So I recommend 7sage to everyone. They are pretty cheap too. If you want to sign up for them PM me. I can get you a discount and answer any questions you have.

I don't know my OCT 2012 score yet. Hoping to improve from my Dec 2011 161. Took 7sage online over the summer and all I can say is J.Y. Ping, the guy who produced most of the curriculum and whose voice you hear in all the videos, is a fucking boss.

Velocity is decent, but mostly for the sheer amount of guided practice. Nothing really earth-shattering or too insightful about its LR or RC methods IMO, but the sheer amount of practice the materials provide should help you improve in both sections.

Velocity's biggest strength for me was the solid and comprehensive method for attacking LG. If you go with that method, though, it's pretty inflexible if something unexpected comes up. I felt like I mastered the Velocity method and was utterly unprepared for the zoning LG in PT 67. But the other three games were cake with the Velocity method.

Were you prepared?

Would say so, but I haven't gotten a score back yet from October.

To be honest I didn't find Velocity's RC advice to be helpful, though. I went off and found supplements like the manhattan RC guide for that section. Again, the benefit from Velocity RC was just the sheer practice.

You'll definitely be ready for LR with Velocity. He breaks down every question type and shows you how to attack it, then hammers the point home with pages and pages of practice questions and video explanations for each question. Not saying it will take you to -0 consistently if you're not there already, but it is very helpful.

7sage shills are running rampant lately.

Velocity is fine for LG, but I was unsatisfied with LR. Don't know anything about 7sage. Go Manhattan for LR and RC though.

This sounds like a recipe for disaster. During your prep had you tried applying their method to all of the released Logic Games? I don't know what their method is, but I'm curious, since there seems to be at least some hype about Velocity on here.

The hype is probably just that it's decent for the price point. I didn't find anything else that was as comprehensive for the 550 or whatever I paid.

The thing is that there is a slightly different method for each game type, and he covers like 5-6 main game types. If the game you see doesn't fit into the box, you might have a tough time.

Then again, maybe I just did it wrong.

I did not see any improvements from Velocity. I would try 7Sage.
