I'm finally starting to get games

Linear games with not rules are now a breeze...
Advanced Linear games are becoming way easier now that i reuse the main diagram if there are lots of elements involved (which seems to be really common)
My grouping skills still arent great but they are getting better.

I might just be peaking at the right time!

Cross my fingers!

Congrats, nobody deserves it more.  I'm starting to get games as well.  How are you with unbalanced (underfunded/overloaded) advanced linear games?  I've been able to get my times in balanced games to about 6-7min per game, to leave me extra time for grouping games, although unbalanced games still give me problems.  I'm hoping for 4 basic linear, balanced games on Preptest 44.

i'm actually pretty decent at underfunded games, unbalanced games. 

overloaded are still tough for me.

I still find lots of humor value in reading the PS descriptions of games.  I sometimes wonder if I am working different LSATs because I couldn't even begin to imagine what an "underfunded" or "unbalanced" game would be like...

Matt,

Feels good does'nt it.  

I have a game for you that you may or may not have done that will really test you're metal.
I have a technique that can be applied to this game and others like it that will reduce them to nothing.  Give December of 1997 game #3 a go and then let me know if you already know the trick.  If not  I'd be willing to share.

Hmm. I just took this one today. It's the game with the two textbook reviewers, right? What's your technique? I didn't find it especially tough, I think I got -1 from a dumb error. The last game seemed a lot tougher, though that might've been due to time crunch as I got them all right.

Nope.  The game I am talking about involves treatments and illnesses.

Well, then you're talking about the 4th game in Dec. 97.

Alright, I just gave game 4 of PrepTest 24 another shot and I had trouble with it.  What is your trick AaronJ?
