A few common fallacies that you just gotta know

Flaw questions are one of the most common types of Logical Reasoning questions on the LSAT. That’s reason enough to study them thoroughly. Furthermore, the concepts that underlie Flaw questions show up in myriad other questions in the LSAT.

So flawed arguments are a big deal. We’ll have more on the importance of flawed arguments later in the week, but for today we’ll look at a few of the most common logical fallacies you’ll see in Flaw questions and on the LSAT in general. The better you get at spotting these, the easier this cursed test gets.

Getting Started with Reading Comprehension

Some students like to ignore the Reading Comprehension section of the LSAT. Maybe they find the passages boring. I have no idea why.

But I think that many students don’t give Reading Comp its due because it seems familiar and that familiarity breeds complacency. You know how to read, after all — that you’ve made it this far into this blog post is ample evidence.

But go back and check your most recent LSAT practice exam. Did you nail the Reading Comp section? If not, you have some work to do. LSAT Reading Comp may seem deceptively familiar, but it’s different. You can improve your score, but it takes the right approach.

You Got This

Tomorrow is the September LSAT. No amount of freaking out will change that, so it’s best to accept it. Here’s why you shouldn’t be too scared.

You’ve come along way. Remember when you started studying? When logic games looked like an alien language? When it seemed like there were so many indicator words for necessary and sufficient conditions and you didn’t know how you’d ever get them all down? Those days are long gone.

If you’re a student in one of Blueprint’s classes, you’ve probably wrapped up grouping games recently. What makes an In and Out game different from the rest?
