HELP:Identifying Conclusion & Sufficient/Necesary Conditions

Postby OMGMike » Fri May 28, 2010 4:15 pm

When you're done laughing at me please help me. I am having difficulty with identifying conclusions and differentiating between sufficient and necessary conditions. No, Im not an idiot. I can recognize them but it takes me awhile whereas most other concepts on the LSAT have come pretty quickly to me. So I was wondering: is there a quick way to identify conclusion and to differentiate between sufficient and necessary conditions?

Thank you for any advice you might have.

Have you read anything on this? Logical Reasoning Bible?

This is something a lot of people have trouble with when they're starting out.

You should learn some common indicator words to help you distinguish them.

The following don't always appear, but they do quite often.

Here are a few:

evidence: since, because, after all
conclusion: thus, therefore

sufficient: if, when, all, every
necessary: then, only

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately Ive already gone through both the bibles and have taken many practice tests so Im pretty familiar with indicators. You'd probably be surprised (and possible not believe me) if I told you Ive actually been scoring well without this knowledge. Its not a consistent problem its just something I have an occasional but semi-consistent problem with on PTs.

Anyways thanks for the help, time to memorize some indicators.
