First day of full seriousness, but, a lot more games from tomorrow!


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)


9:44 am here! East coast ;)

Also how do we know lawjag is a he? That's an unsupported assumption as well, isn't it? I don't see his/her gender listed.

assuming he hasn't posting anything in any other thread indicating such and then assuming I havent seen all of them... more assumptions :P (that sounds very creepy I know)

Yes, very creepy. And now my brain hurts. For some reason I'm really struggling to get LSAT motivated today. Perhaps it has something to do with being in extreme pain from a root canal yesterday...

Ugh, I'm like that on grouping games too. I freeze up & then that totally affects my timing. I need to figure out how to get more confident on them before test day :| I've been drilling tons of them but I still don't like doing them

Its all about the inferences, I feel like its a little easier to see the inferences in an ordering game than grouping, but just gotta keep pushing, watch videos and see how the different types of inferences are made and shown and try to utilize your own way to do it which you can grasp and remember

I personally love odyssey's videos on games and have def grasped some of the ways he sets up the games to easily tackle the questions (they had a free access to their LG videos b4 oct but currently have a free 2-week trial you can look into)

word, I did 50 MBT throughout yesterday (-5/2-L1&3L2) Gotta go over like 3 or 4 of them again then prob try to get in 50-70 maybe and some MSS
And everyone has their own way they study, gotta find what works for you. If you go back to games 3days later and are lost... throw in some games in your day, even if its just one a day to keep the flow of games in your head

This is how Blueprint usually assigns homework after a session. I like this approach because I can do a little bit of each section.

its your lack of tar... its generally an accepted practice on TLS and ITT to assume posted is their 'tar... (IE. nlee is a ghost and rigo is a caterpillar) so you must be nothingness :p

I stick with Odyssey bc I registered for the free acces (up till Feb) while they offered it and I prefer it to the few vids ive watched from 7sage, but https://odysseytestprep.com/revolution/2-week-sign-up/ thats the link they posted for a 2week trial, give them a shot and compare it to 7sage... but videos are def great bc you can watch how inferences and diagrams are made by people who really know what theyre doing

Thanks peppermint :)

I feel like the odd one out here because grouping games came pretty naturally to me whereas ordering took a lot more conscious effort to improve.

I mean, I assumed so too, but since you never made that clear before, and it doesn't say on your profile, I kinda just wanted to be a smartass back to JGoods :) But goddamnit, now he was right...
