    Really helpful Very clear breakdowns of logical reasoning, a cheery outlook with lame but encouraging jokes, and a fantastic overview of diagramming strategies and tons of drills I worked through it at crash course speed to improve my logical reasoning and games and bumped my score up by 4 points I bet it would be even better if you used it as intended as your first guide to the test and worked through it over several months.
