Logic games and memorizing

Postby orzo » Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:23 pm

Is memorization part of learning logic games? If so, what exactly are we to memorize ? I'm trying to improve here and I feel like I'm spinning my wheels :(

Memorization is not apart of any portion of this test imo. LG is more about the mechanism and strategies you use to approach the questions, a la you won't attack a linear the same way you would a grouping. 7Sage is a really good resource if you are 100% stuck paired with the LG Bible or Manhattan LG and you'll be going -2/3 in no time.

*You can go -0 it just takes time, -2/3 is a reasonable goal I wasn't being condescending.

If you're memorizing anything other than the nature/flow of a necessary/sufficient statement for LG, you're doing it wrong. LG is about taking the rules/facts set before you and applying them systematically to the questions.

If you've learned how to think correctly for LG, you should be able to have a fresh game set in front of you with no knowledge of what it will be and finish it in less than 9 minutes.

It's not necessarily about memorizing something, it's about learning how to do different games. It's just stuff you do over and over again, like training.
