An Introduction to LSAT Logical Reasoning

Stevie Wonder

Like Stevie Wonder, you too can become an expert in LSAT Logical Reasoning.

So, you’ve heard somewhere that the LSAT is a test that demands that you successfully weigh evidence against claims. OK, sure. But what does that mean

First, let’s establish some ground rules: 

Wait. What is This LSAT Prep Post Doing Here?

LSAT Prep Timeline

Do you have any idea how long it took me to make those corners? YOU DON'T DO YOU?

I’ll keep it short. I’ve been meaning to create a timeline to help you visualize how your LSAT prep should go. This week, after the end of the semester and before I start my summer job, seemed like the right time.

So I did. It’s above.

Week 18 + 19: Holiday Interregnum

Eggnog for LSAT Excellence

Those glasses are like 70% brandy. Hic.

Ugh. I’m sick on vacation.

Not as bad as Wife and Son, who were too sick to fly yesterday, so we didn’t fly, and rescheduling pushed us back an additional week. I should be working on my write-on for the journal I want to join this year, but I don’t feel like it.

How To Assess Games Difficulty

A few weeks ago, we discussed whether you ought to spend a little time assessing Reading Comprehension passage difficulty. That discussion also applies, in pretty much exactly the same way, to LSAT Games. You should assess difficulty! You shouldn’t spend much time doing it, though! And you should definitely not try comparing games in a section to each other.

How To Make Your LSAT Prep Smart and not Dumb



I recently uploaded a new video to the site (it’s also on YouTube; right here), in which I explain the theoretical basis for smart LSAT prep. I thought you might also enjoy reading it, so I’ve written up what is basically a transcript.

What I want to do here is start by getting you ready in a big-picture, First Principle kind of way for the manner in which we’re going to move you from a place of unfamiliarity, discomfort (and perhaps also fear) to a place of confidence, assurance, and readiness.
