how to "read" Blueprint LG games?

Postby philly93 » Thu May 23, 2013 8:57 am

So I have purchased a copt of Blueprint's LG games and was wondering if anyone can give me tips or advice on how to start studying from the book? Would it be advisable to read through and take notes and do problems or read through once, read again with notes? Any other methods that have worked for people?

Our recommended method is reading through it, taking notes and doing the games (and watching the video explanations). Then, do practice sections from other tests and use the guide in the pack to see which strategies you should have used.

But we're coming at it from a different angle than students, so I'm just as interested as the OP in seeing how people have been using our book!

Depends on where OP is coming from.

If completely new to LG, then the book would be best studied with LGs grouped by type. I'd use the Cambridge packets for drilling after each new game type you read in the book. Cambridge will use slightly different terminology to label the game types, but it will line up just fine with the BP names.

If you are using this book as an alternate source and are familiar with LG, I'd say the index is the most valuable tool. The games are all sorted by PT and BP classification. If you do a game and feel like you didn't do it fast or efficient enough, you can use the index to find out how the game type correlates to a chapter in the book.

It works out great if you fall into the latter group, since you might be better at one type of game than another, and the index can key you in on a new approach to familiar game types.
