Logic Games approach.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the board and decided to make an account because I will be taking the June LSAT. Right now I'm using Powerscore material exclusively because my friend who previously took the exam kindly gave me his prep material. So far the Logical Reasoning bible has helped me improve (although not drastically); on the other hand, the Logic Games Bible has done less to help me. The concepts I'm getting from the LRB are not translating well when I sit to do a timed test. I hope this is all just a part of a transition period that will eventually get me to be more fluent with the techniques I'm learning.

So, with that out of the way. My first question is: What does it mean to brute force the logic games section?

To test out each of the answer options one by one until you hit the right one.

It took me almost 45-50 hours of serious study to be able to do 3 out of 4 games in an average LSAT and I still can't do 3 of 4 in under 35 minutes. My point is that it takes time and practice. The time you do put in needs to be focused to the point where it's stretching your mind to a new and difficult place. Don't expect to just read it through once and have the games nailed.
