If i suck with LG's is it really necessary to get another

book? I have LGB, I duno if it is worth it to get another book. I think I might just keeping drilling away and looking at video explanations unless someone can convince me there is another great LG book worth buying.

I would recommend Manhattan Logic Games. It's short, concise, and offers a lot of flexibility in your style of attacking the games.

As always the key to scoring high is practicing and figuring out why you made the mistakes that you made. What was your thought process? How did you arrive at your answer? Where did you stray down the wrong fork?

You can buy manhattan lg book as a supplement but I never used it. This is not to say when I was reading LG I grasped everything I read. I actually found their grouping game a bit challenging to study. It wasn't till I kept watching 7sage videos that I was able to get better in grouping games. I knew the basics as to how to write the conditional statement and its contrapositives and stuff like that, I just couldn't apply it to the game.

All I would say is, read the book again, but drill more and watch the video multiple times if you don't get initially. It takes time but you can still do well without buying another book.

Manhattan LG and Blueprint LG are both very good. Particularly if you suck, I think it's worth getting more books.

While Blueprint and Manhattan LG books are both excellent, I don't think they are going to offer you anything more than the LGB did. If you truly worked from cover to cover (not skimming, not skipping around, not ignoring questions, etc.), then drilling is the only thing I would recommend. The approaches in all three are very similar (I've gone through BP and LGB cover-to-cover, and spent several hours going over the methods in the MLSAT one). If you don't get it after reading one of them, the others probably won't change that.

Have you looked into velocity lsat? I sucked at games after a prep course and most books, find velocity to be markedly different from the others.
