### Logic Games Approch

Has anyone used LSAT Instructor Kyle Paswark's logic games approach?? I've used this approach for the past few days combined with the advice that clearly gave me in the "could be true" thread that I imagine some of you have seen. Paswark focuses on the idea that if you spend enough time at the top, meaning if you create several diagrams of most of the possible worlds (two, three, or four)at the beginning of the diagraming(the top), you won't have much to figure out at the bottom (the questions). As a result you spend seconds on the questions, but answer them confidently. I've tried this for the past few days, and it's really, relally working!! Just wondering if anyone else has tried this specific way, and if so what do you think of if?

Side note: I was slowly getting better on LG, but I really sucked in LG. Often getting in mid to high double digits wrong lol

IMO this is a good way to learn how to do LGs, but I think it puts you in a position where you risk spending several minutes creating diagrams that you never use. I think the strategy might work better in some sections -- depending on the game and question types as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses -- and worse in others.

You really don't want to waste any time in the LG section, so it might be wise to use this strategy as a starting point as you work toward a strategy that doesn't have such a high risk of wasted time.

I'm not just starting my prep, but it seems like it works for me better than anything else I've tried

I not just starting, but this what seems to help more than really anything I've tried for some reason
