How should I address my LG weakness during last two months before Oct. test?

Hi everyone, thanks in advance for the advice :)

Brief background:
-Diagnostic (April) - 159; -14 LG
-PT 2 weeks ago - 163; -8 LG
-PT yesterday - 168; -8 LG

I have done the Powerscore Bibles and 7sage core curriculum and foolproofed about 80 of games PT1-35 so far. I spend 80% of my time on LG, as it is clearly my weakness. I usually miss a couple due to accuracy and then run out of time on the rest.

I'm planning to continue foolproofing 1-35 and take PTs 49-89 (every other) before the October exam. It also seems like a good idea to start taking full, timed LG sections, so I'll do that with 36-49 starting soon.

Other than continuing the foolproofing and taking LG sections, does anyone have advice on how to improve my LG score before the exam? Do I need to change my approach? I am thrilled at my improvement between the last two PTs, but I'm a little disappointed that I didn't improve in LG, since that is what I was actually studying 80% of the time; it was even as easier LG section.

Thanks to those who read this and good luck on your studies!

    Hi there! I was also struggling with logic games a lot, but I decided to take the LSAT Hacks Logic Games Mastery seminar. It's a little pricey, but if you can afford it, it might be super helpful for you. I went from missing 11 plus questions to only missing 5, and am improving every day. 7sage has been helpful for drilling games, but the seminar laid out a good foundation. The seminar gives some tips and tricks for how to speed up your process and improve diagramming techniques. Any way, worth taking a look at it if you are able to (:

    Honestly, I dont think your doing enough of the recent games. Your missing -8 now because you are foolproofing the earlier ones. Dont sweat about it, continue foolproofing, and make sure to go hard on the recent games when you do PT

    Don’t just foolproof PT1-35. I think you should be foolproofing the ones you’re taking timed too. Also, pay attention to why you missed a question (is it because you overlooked a rule, drew out the game board wrong, etc.). I think the best way to improve on games is to push out as many inferences upfront as possible before moving onto the questions.

    Ok, thanks everyone! I'll start doing LG sections 36-49 (including foolproofing) and I'll foolproof every LG section I do on a PT.
