Working to Improve on LG?

Postby griffin.811 » Wed Dec 26, 2012 9:46 pm

I've been drilling LG pretty thoroughly, and making notes about the games I found difficult. Figured it might help if we all added this type of info, and created a "working" list of LGs we think have important lessons we should learn from them.

For instance I thought PT36 G3 (Q16 especially) showed the importance of working with contrapositives for games with many conditional clues.

I'd be interested to see what the rest of you are finding.

i went through a tonnnn of logic games in my prep-- used the games listed on these sites for an extra challenge.

i did them within the full section, so i could check my timing on killer LGs. dont have any specific tips about them, but if you can handle those toughies, you can handle anything.

Practice, practice, practice; redo games (especially difficult ones) multiple times; and continue to refine your notation system. LG is very trainable, so any time spent on it is almost always going to be well spent.

I'll definitely be tackling these soon. Thanks!

It has really, really helped me to focus on slowing down and being more meticulous. Too often, I was misreading/overlooking an important rule (in particular one put forth in the blurb that introduces the game) and having the game blow up on me, or drawing a really messy diagram that was very difficult to read. It's much better to take a little extra time at the beginning of the game and make sure everything is clear then it is to rush through reading the rules and doing the setup, and then struggle through the questions. I would probably say doing that has been largely responsible for the breakthrough I've recently made in LG.
