Thanks Point and Laugh.  I get it now.  That is a big help to me.  I really appreciate it.

I would say B!  Do you have the answers?  I might have the answer somewhere..

Thanks guys

One more thing..

If V1 --->  W2

the contrapositive is:

NOT W2 --->  NOT V1

Which means

If  W1 ---> V2

Right?  So in this case, they actually can't be together, while in the other case, technically they could?

Hi!  Help!  I'm totally confused by something.  The third game on the June 96 test is as follows:

Each of two boats, boat 1 and boat 2, will be assigned exactly four people.  Exactly eight people, three adults - F, G, and H - and five children - V, W, X, Y, and Z - must be assigned to the boats according to the following conditions:

Each boat is assigned at least one adult.
If F is assigned to boat 2, G is assigned to boat 2.
If V is assigned to boat 1, W is assigned to boat 2.
X and Z are assigned to different boats.

Now.. question 13 states, "Which one of the following is an acceptable assignment of people to boat 1?

A) F, G, H, X
B) F, H, W, Y
C) F, H, Y, Z
D) F, V, W, X
E) G, H, X, Y

Using the contrapositive of rule 2 (F2 --> G2), you get F1 --> G1 according to the Logic Games Bible description of the way to use a "two value system". (page 110)  Yet the test answer is C in which F and G are not in the same boat.  According to the LGB, this should be wrong.  Any help??

Ok people.. I need help.

R is not scheduled for Thursday unless L is scheduled for Monday.

So, if L IS scheduled for Monday, is R not scheduled for Thursday?  One of the answers was "R is scheduled for Thursday."  which I erroneously chose.  The LGB explanation for why this is not the case is that this selection "reverses" the rule.  I asked about this sort of thing before and thought I had it figured out, but I guess not.


I get panicky with the games too, I wonder where the hell that comes from..

Practice is helping.  Don't ya wish there was an easier way?  ::)

How often did you guys practice?  Couple of hours a week?  A day? How many months in advance?

Congrats on the lack of errors!  From what I hear about the game section on June's test, it was pretty easy.. this makes me nervous for October.  Hope they don't overcompensate.  :-\

Well.. I for one can say that initially, I had no idea how to even start to diagram a logic game.  No real problems with RC or LR, but LG seemed impossible.  Using the LGB, so far I'm getting more of a handle on it.  I can tell there will be many, many practice tests in my future.  Ask me how I do in October and we'll see if I end up fulfilling your criteria.  :)
