Abbreviations and Notes

Hello testmaxprep team, I just wanted to make a suggestion for future videos. When allowing a pause for the viewer to work a question out on their own, I would establish what abbreviations you will use when turning a question into formula. For instance, on the second example here we have "parents who are good" and "parents who are generous" as two factors, both of which could be coded as GP. Obvious the viewer will not code both as GP so as to not confuse themselves, but it disrupts the flow of things when the viewer has their question charted completely and upon resuming the video there is a need to pause for a moment and reconcile the viewer and the presenters chart to make sure the same abbreviations are used. A solution could be to briefly "agree" which abbreviations will be used for which actors in the question. I think this will help with clarity if you ever edit/rerecord the videos in the future. Cheers!

Hi Darron, thanks for the suggestion!

Feedback like this is always appreciated. I will be sure to pass this on to the content development team.

Good luck and all the best in your studies!

I had the same idea, but, now, I think it's good the way it is.

Part of the training is trying to figure out good abbreviations, and sometimes after stumbling around for a while, you figure out some. Then, you watch the videos and realize there are better (or at least different) ones out there.

Some of the questions on the LSAT are written with the possibility of mixing up abbreviations, so we need to get accustomed to working with them.
