Square of opposition on LR problems

Postby gmreplay » Tue Feb 02, 2010 6:12 pm

A professor of mine who got a 176 on the LSAT years ago told me that the square of opposition might help me to answer some questions on the LR portions of the test. I've tried to use it several times, but it doesn't really seem to help. Does anyone use the square of opposition for dealing with formal logic (or any other type) of LR questions?

I've seen that referenced in regards to "logically" negating assumption AC's for use in the "assumption negation test." It may help with formal logic especially as you think about some/most/all/somenot/etc/etc. If at all pressed for time I don't believe this is your quickest route to success.
