LG advice please

Postby mwhuzain » Wed Sep 11, 2013 3:44 pm

I cannot seem to wrap my head around LG. 50-60% correct per PT (probably even less on the actual test). Sometimes I just freeze and it's terrible.

Please post some solid advice. This section is holding me back from a good score.

Especially for hybrid games....

Get 20 or so games of various types.

Redo them over and over and over while watching the 7sage explanations.

Once you recognize that, fundamentally speaking, all games (except the misc. ones back in the early 90s) fundamentally test the same concept and utilize the same things, all games should be doable with a perfect score. At that point it's just a matter of doing more games and getting your timing/ability to take the test down.

I recommend using Powerscore LGB and the workbook it pairs with to at least lock down your understanding of how to play the games. Then the next step is practice, practice, practice. My biggest challenge is doing everything timed, but I'm at least at -0 untimed, so at this point speed is Enemy Number One (which is much better than having "Understanding Diagramming" as the arch nemesis).

I used to be TERRIFIED of LG until I actually learned how to do them properly. Now I think they're fun.
