Since I started practicing a month or so ago, I have been reading the question stem first in LR questions. I believe this may be the strategy PR suggests. I came across Powerscore's technique, saying to absolutely avoid reading the question stem first. I find that reading the stem first helps me quite a bit, as I do fine this way, averaging 3 wrong per LR section.
I really don't buy any of Powerscore's objections to this method, except for perhaps that it wastes more time. How do you all approach LR?
Secondly, in diagramming linear LG's, the PR suggests that you kind of make a table and fill in your work for all of the questions in separate rows in that table. Just keep on adding a row for each question. Powerscore suggests to redraw the whole thing for each question. I've been following Powerscore's method to see if it works, but I feel like PR's method takes less time and helps you see all of the connections, as your work for the question is right beneath the main setup with all the not-laws, etc filled in. Furthermore, it takes less space, since there is not always enough space next to questions to re-create the diagram.
What diagramming methods do you use mostly with linear and other games?
Just thought I'll see what the consensus is, but as usual, I ended up putting in a bunch of extraneous information: so basically what are your preferred LR and LG techniques?
