You're right GT a humblebrag in that sitch would b like "idk guys it must b easy bc 178ed it n it was my 2nd test" but I think the humblebrag preface removed the need for making it seem humble

LG related rant. After watching alot of the Odyssey LG explanations, I'm starting to realize that whenever I'm stuck on a question in LG (like stopped in my track, don't know what to do stuck) its usually because I missed a major inference upfront. SO I pause go over the rules and my diagram once more and BAM!!! there it is!!! that major inference that I totally missed the first time.

Its annoying but its so so important because it makes me feel like every question they ask is more or less based on an inference that you I should make upfront :roll:

I don't waste time w diagramming or inferences. All the answers r right there in the rules just do it in your head

Definitely depends on the game. To master LG, I think you really have to develop a strong intuition about when to dig deep and search for inferences, and when you have to brute force.

For sure, I mean some games you can figure out most of it up front, others (especially heavily conditional logic ones), it's all figured out locally w each question

Also..Bill, Colonel and smm PLEASE RESPOND :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm in the low 160s now last PT was PT35 yesterday breakdown -4 LG, -5 LR 2, -7 LR1 and -7RC. I am drilling RC and LR right now but I am thinking that since I have like all of the PTs from 1-71 maybe I should focus on a PT every other day then and drill the next day...So my schedule would be:

Day 1: PT in the AM-->Rest (watch Orange is the new black)--->Blind Review in the PM..
Day 2 Drill all of the question types that I got wrong....
Day 3 Repeat Day 1
Day 4 Repeat Day 2 etc etc etc

What do you guys think???

Everytime I try to do a LG question in my head I mess shit up...you are special...like seriously

Very true, I am working on Advanced Linear Games right now and I find them top be very inference driven

I think that sounds like a legit plan, however watch out for burnout. That's 13 tests before test day at that rate.

Also sometimes I'll devote some
Extra attention to Stuff I don't necessarily miss if I know ive had a problem with it in the past. For instance I was really bad at NA problems starting out. Then I drilled the crap out of them, I haven't missed one in like 8-9 sections, but I'll still drill them and review them to make sure a curveball doesn't eff me on 9/27 d-day bow our heads

Edit: again I was totally kidding about doing LGs in my head

It's kind of like saying "with all due respect" before telling someone how you really feel.

I feel like I don't have enough time (I say while wasting it on TLS) to keep drilling what I've learned with LG and LR and RC and I know that I need to be doing questions constantly to perform well.

IDK, maybe I need to make some sort of schedule for myself where I do at least one section of LG and RC a day when I'm focusing on LR. But, I'm very weary of bouncing between sections like that.

That's a pretty intense schedule but yeah I think it looks good just make sure you're picking up patterns on your misses or else you'll b burning n churning thru them
