those hard logic game problems are giving me a headache. i mean I get all the questions correct in the end, but some of those problems take me like 13~14 mins to finish... it just takes too long for me to set up the diagram and make inferences for each question

any tips? im taking in June next year btw

My only advice is only take it if you ABSOLUTELY know you're ready. Albeit, this is not a very easy thing to know. Not to scare, but anything can happen on test day, both in and out of your control.

Its not so much one section, as reason to post this, but the entire lsat and application process. Bc of it, i must apply to schools that were never ever on my radar. I have 75%+ GPA for every school...but...lsat is a much different story.

Practice, practice, practice.

Several LSAT study guides on this website instruct people following them to photocopy logic games so they can be repeated, and given how much time you have, that's definitely what you should do.

For me this was of little help on Dec10 because the two games Stained Glass/Conferences I did not get the standard inferences that usually follow from setups - maybe I should have devoted more time but it seemed like each question asked you to start the game over with a new hypo. F december10.

I didn't take the December '10 test, but from taking the June and September tests, it really seems like they're relying less on the old "make an awesome diagram and draw most of the inferences right off the bat" model and more on being able to make multiple hypos and really understand what the rules are doing (through the use of those awful rule change questions). Given the strategies that test prep companies push, this makes sense.

No matter what, being able to draw diagrams and make inferences more quickly is useful, and relying heavily on the most recent tests can't hurt either.

The games are changing, as are the RC passages and questions. Everything is more abstract, more high-level.

Some RC passages (such as Riddled basins) or tough level 5 LR questions make me feel dumb.
