I'm also somewhat freshly removed from school (I graduated in May of 2013) and am struggling finding motivation to study after getting home from the office. Have you found any other resources especially helpful for the Logic Games? I'm finding that I'm not as visually minded as some and find myself struggling to chart some of the LG scenarios and failing to do so critically slows me down.
Before I get back to work, Trestman has the tools to make his mark this year. If Cutler stays healthy and Conte/MD Jennings stay in the locker room, the Bears could really challenge my Packers this year.
The key to success at LG for the vast majority of is diagraming the games. There's a lot of information that has to be precisely and quickly juggled across multiple questions. Some may have the memory and logic skills to do so without a diagram, but most people need some form of written categorization. Learning LG is largely about learning how to quickly diagram and make inferences from your diagrams. Practice really does make perfect. Drill, drill, drill using the LG Bible and LG sections you can buy from Cambridge. When I started, LG was my worst section and with the LGB it has consistently become my best.
Hands wrote:Actually, one thing I meant to ask you: how important is it, when using the LG bible, to read through the lessons' details? I find myself kind of nodding along in passive agreement since most of it is kind of rudimentary and waiting for the drills when I try to study that book.
Focus primarily on their diagram notations, suggestions on making inferences, and drill explanations. They're assuming their audience varies form moron to intelligent, so the writing is written to the lowest common denominator. I though the game explanations were the most useful part of the book.
I've been very impressed with Trestman - and Emery, who has put an incredible team together. Conte can perform well - he actually intercepted Rodgers in the end zone in Wk 17. Every defensive scheme, but particulary Cover 2, relies on pass rush as a key component of coverage. The Bears pass rush in the latter half of the season sucked and so any weakness in the coverage was easily exploited. I'm confident Bears will challenge the Packers for a division title. Eddie Lacy is the most overrated RB in the league.
