Do we always diagram the contrapositive?

Is there a time when it is more logical to not always diagram the contrapositives in the interests of saving time?

@zgnewquist, yes, if you have a really strong grasp of the conditional statement and the stimulus, it may not be necessary to diagram the contrapositive in order to help you save time. Try it out on some problems and see for yourself how it affects your ability to get to the correct answer choice. That said, it's always good practice to write the contrapositive when reviewing or when you're in the early stages of your prep.
