Getting Down to Brass Tacks: LSAT Sufficiency & Necessity

It’s been a while.  Life at Blueprint has been pretty busy, resulting in my extended hiatus from the blog.  But it’s good to be back.
First, let me reintroduce myself.  Riley.  UCLA grad.  Co-owner of Blueprint.  Scored 176 or higher four times on the LSAT.  Taught more LSAT students in the last six years than anyone in the universe (I think).  Unfortunately nicknamed the LSAT Ninja.
Great, now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk LSAT.  I recently started teaching a course gearing up for the June LSAT.  In the hopes of aiding my team (as well as all of the other LSAT students out there), I will be authoring weekly blog posts with LSAT tips.
This week: sufficient and necessary.
