Stabilizing Unstable Grouping Games

Recent administrations of the LSAT have seen an uptick in a certain type of Logic Game that we at Blueprint like to call unstable grouping games. If that phrase seems like a string of gibberish to you, here’s an example of the type of game we’re referring to:

Identifying Cause and Effect Relationships

Cause and effect relationships were probably one of the argument structures that you were most comfortable with before starting your LSAT prep. You see A happen…A is followed be B…so you know that A caused B.

How can questions in Reading Comp passages help you?

Reading Comprehension passages, like the rest of the LSAT, is prone to repeating certain structures over and over. After all, there are only so many ways to set up or argue about a short passage. In fact, noticing certain often-used passage structures (which Blueprint LSAT students may recognize as what we call the “secondary structures” of a passage) can vastly improve your overall understanding of a passage. But if you’re fortunate enough to notice a secondary structure, how does that knowledge actually help you?
