I have the book, but didn't use it. After reading the games bible I didn't even need it.

I used it a fair bit--whenever I go totally stuck on a game I'd use it as a reference.

I used it a little. It's handy when you're really stuck on a game. You can probably do without it though.

I thought it was useful, shows you the best ways to diagram games... after I did a game I would check with their setup to make sure all the important info and setup structure was similar.

I give this advice all the time, but dont let 20 bucks affect your LSAT score, its more important than the 100 grand you spent on college.

I would think this would be very helpful.  Once you know the setup, everything else usually follows, and once you've seen a variety of setups, you should have a good sense of how to diagram various games.

I'd say it's not especially helpful. For the most part it only addresses the general setups, but doesn't tackle individual questions.  So I see the book as being very incomplete.  The few times I've gone to refer to it was to get my head around a certain question, and the book had no help there.
