LG extra marking

Postby lsatkid007 » Mon Dec 03, 2012 2:35 pm

How many people make notes by the LG AC when there's a lot of words?
Not the best example:
A. The German award is presented immediately before the Japanese award is presented. GJ
B. The Hebrew award is presented immediately before the German award is presented. HG
C. The Korean award is presented immediately before the French award is presented. KF

I'm sure you guys get the idea.

Yeah OP I do not really do what you describe, but when I go to hypo (and remember you should not hypo every question, use it sparingly because of time restraints) I do an all out version of what you describe but actually place them in the correct slots in a mini diagram.

OP, if you are writing that out next to every AC, you should break that habit imo unless it starts to throw your perfroamce way off. I say this because I imagine that could save you maybe 2-3 minutes or so during a standard 4 game section.

I'm actually more likely to do that in wordy LR questions. For LG questions everything goes in my master diagram.

Not sure what "AC" means (is my inexperience showing?) but I write out every rule from the original prompt in some sort of shorthand (well, other than things like "every teacher is assigned at least once", those I try to just make a mental note of).

Is this not the norm? Maybe I've been drinking the LGB Kool-Aid.. hopefully I'll need less notes once I get further into studying / more comfortable with games.

nah man, absolutely stick with that. writing out the rules is the norm fa sho.
OP is talking about further rules in the answer choices (AC), not in the initial setup.

I only mark usually for the "except" questions because when you write out the answer choice and try to solve the ordering, you'll see what's wrong with it right away.
