I am in the very beginning of my prep. Games is my worst section, and it is also the most improvable according to TLS and other sources. So what I am doing is doing games and games only to start out. Going through PS LGB right now and then through Trainer and then I'll drill using pithypike method (each game 3 times).
Should I be incorporating LR study into my prep right now? It is half the test. But I'm worried that if I don't practice LG every day, I won't improve as much as I can.
Maybe what I should do is go through my prep books on LG then once I get into the drilling for LG (which will probably be in a week or two) I get into my LR prep. And then RC down the road. What do yall think about that?
From everything that I have read (and I have read a LOT about this test), people do games because it is the quick gains and it makes someone feel good to start with a 150 and a -14 on games to go to a 160 within weeks just by learning some strategy. However, for me, the games are necessary to mix up with everything.
1. They are easily forgettable and so I don't think that you should focus on them, then put them away, then focus on them, then put them away, etc. It is like learning how to ice skate. Once you got it, you got it. Once you stop for a month, you really suck.
2. Logic Games are almost like a break. I don't know about you but LR and RC is taxing on my brain but games are, well, kinda fun
. It lets parts of my brain rest while still studying. If you mix it into your prep, you are still studying - and games are definitely important - but it isn't nearly as draining
