Logic Games advice

Postby washin34 » Thu Jul 08, 2010 11:21 pm

The games on PTs 7-18 are incredibly harder for me. Sometimes I don't even complete them in time. I've read on TLS that these games are not reflective of the games on the current LSAT. I am able to complete games from PTs 29 to current with much less difficulty (avg-6). How irrelevant are these early games? Should I focus on games from PTs 29 to current since they are more typical of what is on the LSAT?

Well, it just depends on how much risk you're willing to assume in favor of not having to master as much difficult material. There's always the small chance that an obscure old school game type could pop up again, but it's just not LIKELY.

If you don't want to take the whatever marginal % chance that the game will in fact show up on the LSAT you take, then it's probably a good idea to try and masters those game types; but if you're ok knowing that most likely you'll be ok without them, then that's fine too. Obviously, no one can really offer an EXACT percentage on how likely such game types are to show up on a new LSAT.

I'm guessing it's a good idea to master the old games, in general...

They aren't that irrelevant. Getting good at them will help you. Game 3 of the most recent test is a good example of a game that is a bit unusual. Getting better at all sorts of different games will help you.
