through the LGB, now what?

Postby heywatchitbuddy » Wed May 29, 2013 4:58 am

So I've finished the LGB, but I still don't feel very confident about diagramming the harder grouping/linear games and getting ALL the necessary inferences. So what's the next step to the goal of -0? Should I start doing PT sections, or should I be drilling specific problems? thanks

Check out some of the free resources from Velocity and make sure you know how to diagram each of the main types. Don't rely too heavily on a specific formula, just the general idea of each.

I feel that the LGB is a little outdated. I'd suggest picking up a Blueprint or Manhattan book if you have the cash to spare.

After going through the LGB I bought the powerscore game type training book with all games from PTs 1-20. I made extra photocopies so I could go over each of them multiple times over a period of several months (I'm taking the October LSAT). Before starting I was averaging about -5 to -7 per LG section on timed PTs, and struggling to finish in time, but after going through all the games from PTs 1-20 (which took about 2-3 weeks), I've only been getting about 1-2 questions wrong per LG section and I easily finish in time, typically with a couple minutes to spare. I'm continuing to work on the games and plan on going through them again and again until I consistently get -0 in LG. So I would highly recommend getting the powerscore game type training book or something similar. They also have a book for PTs 21-40. It's a great way of applying the PS LG method in the games by getting lots and lots of practice.

Other than drilling, I would also suggest Manhattan. Although I largely stuck with the Powerscore strategies, I incorporated a few of the Manhattan ones as well as some general advice and understanding from Manhattan. I think Manhattan is most effective to people that already have a basic understanding of games but are still having some issues.
