OK as of Thursday night, only halfway through M-LG book

Postby meadow201 » Fri Oct 04, 2013 5:31 am

I just got through the ordering portion. Didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but the tree was better than the LGB.

I'm not your typical crammer because I already put in my work last May in time for the June administration (99th %).

I still have the grouping section of the book to go through. I used LGB last time around, got down to 0/-1, but something went wrong (not terribly wrong) on test day. No consistent weaknesses obviously. I just took PT 67 and got wrecked by zones (finished it but had to go 5min OT). Afterward, I thought about it harder and the questions came really quickly. Went -1 on the section but also 5min OT.

I don't remember the LGB too much.

Are there any types of games M-LG is especially good at? I got the tree down. I skimmed the In Out board and it looks totally new but learnable. Would you suggest I

(1)go through the entire second half of the M-LG
(2), just some games types of the M-LG
(3) forget about it, just take a PT and watch movies
(4) dont take it, postpone until December

If you're trying to score above 165, postpone. You can't learn logic games 36 hours before the test.

Their Open Grouping setup was nice. The Logic Chain for Conditional Grouping is absolutely brilliant, and their Logic Tree for Relative ordering was great (but you probably know that one). Once you get through the book I think hybrids come naturally, and 3D is simple once you see that you just throw* a layer on top of however you'd normally set it up.

I think OP was in 99th percentile last time, if I'm not misreading that.

Missed that! I figure OP should be fine then.

So the Conditional Grouping/Open Grouping is learnable in a day? Then 3D grouping is the same thing with another layer? Or are you saying that 3D ordering is another layer on top of regular ordering?
