Jgoods, I dare you to use these ideas as some sort of pickup line the next time you see someone hot at the bar

For example, you can be like, "heyyyyy, you wanna come over to my place tonight... and do some logic games?" Then wiggle your eyebrows suggestively :P


uhhhh totally

Yep, I think better when the temp's a bit cold. If it's hot, I have trouble concentrating :|

ETA- I have also noticed that I'm like super focused when it's cold, like it's kinda creepy how in the zone I get


When it is too warm I have trouble staying focused and get tired really easily. When it is cold, I stay sharper a lot longer. Thank goodness we are taking the Dec test!

Thanks WorldsCollide!

Peppermint, regarding that CD question, it was really weird and tough for me at first as well but I think the key here is to have your conditional rules down. Write the rules first (CLEARLY, since you could have various combinations of i.e. both or one on sale/not on sale) and take a few seconds to distinguish which rules mandate both and which rules happen with just one. Also I remember there was a pair of rules you could compound and that's really crucial as it comes up later in a question. If you have that, it's really not that bad of a game. I had to get over my OCD because I wanted to draw really neat tables for each question that really took a lot of my time (and even after I already had the answer confirmed, I couldn't circle the answer unless my box was straight and didn't slant to one way, scumbag brain I know!). But I found the first time and second time I did the question, the tables helped (probably not how 7sage does it?). It was more intuitive and I could just check or "x" which ones were on sale and which ones were not on sale. With the table and familiarizing the conditional rules, it much easier to see what gets triggered. For the last few questions, if you draw the table, you have to reorient your thinking because they talk about if only new or old are ALL on/not on sale.

But yeah, I don't mean to say this question was super easy, not at all, but I redrilled it 3+ times. First time probably took me like 20+ minutes, second time 12 minutes, third time I think was under or around 10.

nlee10, I'm up in the pacific northwest and it is SO COLD. Outside is okay I think, but for some reason my house is really really cold. I'm living at home this semester, but for like all of my undergrad degree I was living in a dorm on campus and I LOVED cranking up the heat as my school paid for everything. Could be like -30 outside, and 30+ in my room. But this weather right now...wet & cold, not good. But yeah, summer was an issue too, would just start sweating when a hard logic game came along...

Never know till you try :D

Seriously though, what are your weak areas? Are you struggling with LG (b/c that's one of the easiest to fix), etc

ETA- have you drilled any? What books have you read?


I am half way done with both PS LG and Manhattan LR. Just started Manhattan RC. Haven't really drilled, only the drills provided by the books.

After reading the material, what should be my next move? With so little time left...
