Hey! Thank you for the tip. I sometimes take notes on the margins, but I guess I have a hard time distinguishing moderate from strong tones, etc.
For the games, honestly, all I do is work backwards. I use all the rules to eliminate wrong choices, and I try to quickly create all the hypos I can think of. But the main reason I am good at the games (I think) is because my father used to give me similar games from the time I was 6 years old to work on during summer vacations. I have a book just on logic games from the time I was in middle school that have the exact type games that come up in the LSAT, so I am a quick thinker at the games.
But like I said, all I do is work backwards. I focus on knowing what can't be true, and when they change the rules or add new ones, I just work backwards after the incorporation of the new rules. It's worked for me, and i am sure it can work for you. If I can do it I am sure you can too. It's just a matter of making it fun and ineteresting to you. I hope this helps. Thanks again for the tip!!!
