Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm working though Introduction to Logic by Harry Gensler in which he presents his own invention for testing syllogisms-the star method. I was wondering how common this method is in comparison to Venn diagram methods. It's much quicker than Venn diagrams to use, but the beginning student is at a loss as to why it works. Gensler suggests its validity is a topic for more experienced logicians.
