Many law school applicants preparing for the LSAT panic when they first encounter logic games on the analytical reasoning section. While the reading comprehension and logical reasoning sections test skills like critical thinking and textual analysis that are fundamental to both higher education and legal practice, logic games seem confounding – like half-finished brain teasers.
LSAT logic games set up a scenario, like a series of items that need to be arranged in order or a group of workers who must be assigned to a schedule or set of tasks. Then they question test-takers about what can or must be true under various conditions.
With practice, many test-takers grow to appreciate logic games and find their learning curve rewarding. The section features the most precise and predictable questions on the LSAT. Like math problems, once you know how to solve a logic game, you can feel confident in your answers.
