It could just be that I'm really bad at games, but I believe that the book does not adequately prepare you for LG. Again, I don't want to take anything away from this amazing book (RC and LR are unbelievable), but this is just the way I feel.
Furthermore, in chapter 30 of the book, Mike took four really difficult LSAT LG and combined them into one section. I’m thinking about skipping this chapter and returning to it when I feel I’ve mastered LG since I don’t want to “waste” these difficult games. I want to be able to conquer these games when I’m prepared for the battle, as oppose to attacking these questions when I stand no chance of “defeating” them. Do you think this is a good idea? It bothers me tremendously that I have to skip a chapter but I feel this is the right approach. I would really appreciate your thoughts/ advice.
Lsataddict175, the consensus around here and my own personal opinion is the PowerScore is the best reference for LG. The books might be too rigid for LR and RC, but for LG's they break it down very easily.
I don't think you should skip the lesson. My opinion would be to go through that section and see how you do with the Trainer method. Purchase the PowerScore LG book, and after completing it do those games again and see how you have improved. I unfortunately am only in the beginning of the Trainer, but there are some good aspects of it for LG, that combined with PowerScore can definitely get you into the top score.
If you are worried about using the hardest games, below is a link to the 10 hardest LSAT games broken down. So you can use them to measure yourself before and after Powerscore and the Trainer. http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/lg_ ... -games.cfm
