Is anyone using the Powerscore Bible for Logic Games that find it as a good addition to using 7Sage? I love 7Sage explanations, but wonder if I'm missing something if I don't get Powerscore...Thoughts?

If you're doing just fine with 7sage then it's not needed.
If you're having trouble writing your initial setup, the Bible may be helpful.


For some reason, the LG Bible never clicked for me. Same with the LR Bible... (fml the cost of these two books). I found the Trainer and Blueprint LG good for teaching.

yeah it was shit! only one school had online transfer services, the other 3 I had to print out request forms, sign, scan, attach, send off. then dealing with calling the schools and trying to get through to them.

Ok, I may have to try the trainer/blueprint. I got the Powerscore LR and it helped, but I kinda felt like it was overkill a bit...anyway, @Rigo I generally do fine w initial setup, however, I never studied "types of games," (except for skimming a princeton review chapter on it, which was only mildly helpful) I mostly just watched the 7sage videos.

So, I'm comfortable w sequencing, grouping, and some double layer games but if there are any surprises I panic...so I think I should go back and read a little more to help me w timing issues that occur as a result.

Not that I can think of. Enjoy and report back if they mention any predictions they have for this cycle and legal education in the next few years.

Does stanford actively gay bash?

How's grindr at Duke?

Is the gay bump worth the hepatitis?

These are the things rigo secretly asked me to ask adcomms

Nice job! If you can be that motivated before 9:30 in the morning I'm sure your continued full seriousness training will go very well :)

lets play find that flaw :p just because its before 9:30 for us doesn't necessarily means its before 9:30 for him :wink: (unless of course I missed something which he mentioned his time zone or something, in which case completely ignore this post)

Why is it that I am very comfortable with ordering, and not even half confident in grouping games? What are the underlying differences in thought processes I wonder? Anyone?

Point well taken though, Jgoods :) I might have psychic tendencies but I can't depend on them for test day...
