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.

Don’t Miss Out on Our Two LSAT Webinars Tomorrow!

Before we could harness the power of the internet to bring LSAT content directly to you, the industrious future attorney, some of the older LSAT knowers at Blueprint had to pile into a used Ford Econoline and hit the road, trekking all across this nation, dropping kernels of LSAT knowledge wherever we could. Like some weird, legal-themed Johnny Appleseeds. By the time we would reach the east coast, the van’s brakes would be shot, along with our patience for each other and our tolerance for a diet of gas station gastronomy.

RSVP to Next Tuesday’s LSAT and Logic Games Webinars!

Back to school season is in full swing, and next week, Blueprint is taking you to class. That’s right — we’re hosting two free webinars, so you’ll be able to learn more about the LSAT as a whole or the Logic Games section specifically, from the comfort of your own home! Or the library… or work… or your friendly neighborhood coffee shop… you get the idea. Pants are optional (unless you’re in one of the latter places).

A Look at the June 2018 LSAT: Logic Games and the Curve

And we’re finishing up our fantastic voyage through the June 2018 LSAT today with Logic Games and “the curve.” In many ways, these are the easiest parts of the LSAT to predict. And yet, in my experience, these are the two sections students freak out about the most. The chance of getting a completely novel game tends to worry a lot of test takers. And yet, pretty much every games section features one basic ordering game, one tiered ordering game, a grouping game of some sort, and then either a second grouping game or a game that combines ordering and grouping. People worry about whether they’re going to get a hard test or an easy test, and then if it’s an easy test, they worry that the curve will be totally unforgiving. But, not for nothing, our resident LSAT soothsayer has been nailing the curve for awhile now.

Finally, Our Infallible Expert* Makes His Unimpeachable Predictions for the June LSAT

The June LSAT is coming up Monday, so it’s time for our favorite every-few-months ritual: predicting what will be on the LSAT. The usual disclaimer applies — we don’t have any insider knowledge about what’s going to be on Monday’s test. Even if we did, we’d remain silent lest a team of LSAC secret agents show up at our offices with a thirst for vengeance. So, uh, anyway, what follows is a guess. Nothing more, nothing less.

June LSAT Takers: Spend a Little Extra Time on This Stuff

The well-prepared test taker, just like the well-coached basketball team, should be best prepared for the most likely outcome. A well-coached basketball team, like, say the Warriors of the Golden State, should have been exceedingly well-prepared for the most likely outcome playing the Rockets of Houston last night.

Speeding Up on Logic Games

Recently, we went over how to get faster on the Reading Comp section of the LSAT. Now, it’s time to go over Logic Games. Finishing the Games section in time was my biggest struggle when I first took the LSAT, but you can improve your speed on the games section greatly. Here are some tips:

Choosing the Right Path on Those Tricky Profiling Games

For most logic games on the LSAT, it’s pretty clear how you should be setting up your game. If Little Jimmy is going to eat six bowls of cereal and you’re figuring out what order he eats ’em in, you draw six spots on your paper and fill them in. If you’re figuring out who’s on the varsity volleyball team and who only made JV, your groups are the two teams, and then you figure out who was lucky and who wasn’t.

Tiers Without Fears

Most LSAT Prep systems approach ordering games in more or less the same way. First, we start by showing you the classic 1:1 ordering game. Some call these “basic linear” games or something to that effect. But the idea is: you have a certain number of players you have to order, and a certain number of places to put those players, and those two numbers are the same. You have to watch eight Netflix series? On a 1:1 ordering game, you’ll watch them one at a time, first through eighth. Or you have to visit six fast casual eateries? Well you’ll visit one per day, from Monday to Saturday.
