We recently received the following question from a student. An instructor will respond below. Thanks!

Hey
So i started to follow a schedule that requires that i finish the Linear games chapter and then do some drills that the schedule provides. However, I worry that i will forget the things that I learned since its is a 200-page chapter. Now I'm on page 47 and im understanding every term, my question is should I practice these terms then go forward?
Another question regarding the BLOCKS:
So is that how should I diagram on the dest (drawing blocks or is there gonna be a section telling me how to diagram them?

Thank you so much, it is a great book

Hi Levon,

Thanks for the question!

Yes, you want to understand the terms, but don't let it stop you—keep moving forward since working with the ideas will help, and doing those drills will help reinforce the ideas!

And yes, there is more coming on blocks! In the 2018 version the initial introductory block section is on pages 42-50. that covers all sorts of diagrams, but you will also see block diagrams repeatedly throughout the book, so they won't go away :-D

Please let me know if this helps. Thanks!

So basically i should finish the chapter (200 pages) and then do the drills?
And also is the book gonna explain how i will insert blocks in diagrams after page 50?
Thanks

Hi Levon,

Yes, that's my advice here. and yes, the discussion of blocks is nearly constant throughout that book. Blocks are an integral part of LG. Did you see the discussion of diagramming them? that's just the start :-D

Thanks!
