Anyone used LSAT Trainer by Mike Kim?

I loved that book as an overall guide and as a resource for RC and LR (my strengths) but I have not found its method (skill > memorization) to work for me in LG. I'm consistently running out of time by the third game and sometimes don't even make it to the third. Anyone been in my shoes?

I started with 7Sage like two days ago because I'm desperate to improve my LG and have started doing the 'fool proof' method of just repeating the same games or game sections over and over. Not sure if this will work but I'm giving it a whirl. I signed up for the August LSAT flex and have about two weeks left. My best PT is 161 and my goal is ~168.

Need advice on best ways to improve Logic Games!

    Go through 7SAGE for the Logic Games they explain everything more clearly.

    I'm still a beginner but have found the method on 7Sage way more effective so far than with Mike's. LR and RC are very useful in there though!

    I love LSAT trainer but nothing improved my LG like the foolproof method on 7sage. Definitely go with 7 sage for LG

    Thanks y'all! It sounds like 7Sage > Trainer when it comes to LG. So knowing that, and given I have about two and a half weeks before my first LSAT (ruh roh), would y'all suggest going through the course syllabus for LG or just focus on the fool proof method / rigorous drilling?

    When I review JY's video explanations for the games, I don't feel like I'm missing any core piece of fundamental knowledge, which makes me think I don't go need to relearn everything ... but ... idk

    I actually coupled LSAT Trainers LG techniques with 7Sage. Definitely used 7Sage more but I appreciated Mike's shape concept for similar elements. His notations are almost identical to JY so it doesn't hurt to keep reinforcing that page that has a visual of diagramming (common bases, assignment rules, ordering rules, etc).
