Your End-of-Year Review of the 2018 LSATs

You guys, it’s been another fantastic year of the LSAT in the book. Well, if you had to take the LSAT this year, “fantastic” might not be the word that immediately springs to mind. But, at any rate, this year is over. I mean, sure, we technically have eleven more days and two major holidays left to go in 2018 (three if you’re in a Commonwealth country — shouts to Boxing Day). But, for all LSAT-related intents and purposes, this year is over. The final LSAT came and went and was released. Registration for the next LSAT has closed. Our classes have been put on a momentary hiatus for the holidays.

Get Some Practice Playing the Numbers

When someone tells you to “play the numbers” in a Logic Game, does your mind go blank, or even worse, to some kind of ill-conceived gambling scheme? If you’re not yet comfortable with playing the numbers, then you’re in luck (with your LSAT aspirations at least). Playing the numbers is mainly going to be a method deployed on overbooked and underbooked logic games. It’s a way to determine the parameters of the game (the smallest and largest numbers you can use while applying all of the game’s rules). This allows you to narrow down the game to a few possible scenarios. Let’s look at a couple examples to see how you would “play the numbers” in an actual game.

A Look at the September 2018 LSAT: Logic Games

Today we’re continuing our look at the September 2018 LSAT by delving into the Logic Games section. There have been a few recent test administrations with some off-the-wall game types (like a vanishingly-rare circular game on the July administration of the test). Did LSAC continue the trend of unusual game types with this most recent test, or did they bring it back to basics? Read on to find out!

What I Wish I Knew About Logic Games Before Taking the LSAT

There are some people who feel completely comfortable with LSAT logic games — they take to games like a fish to water, with nary a problem finding deductions or visualizing how the game works.

Back when I was studying for the LSAT, I was not one of those people. Don’t get me wrong, I did fine on the Games section, but I always had a lingering fear that I’d get some super hard game on my test and not be able to figure it out. I just couldn’t quite see how games worked in the way that other people could.

When You Need to Triage Your LSAT Studies

In a hospital, triage is about assigning degrees of urgency to different patients when there are too many to treat right away. But what does triage look like in the context of the LSAT?

Many LSAT students get to a point when they realize that they just won’t have time to master every possible topic the LSAT could throw at them. Instead of giving each topic equal time, the best thing this student can do is to assign highest priority to those LSAT topics which are most common and most important to success.

Gather ‘Round to Learn How to Conquer Circular Games

Circular logic games are a veritable unicorn of the LSAT, but the kind of unicorn you’d really rather not see, like one that poops ominous clouds instead of rainbows.

Takers of the July 2018 LSAT were unpleasantly surprised to find that their test included one of these mythical game types.
