### Practice Diagraming Conditional Statements

I want to get as much practice as I can diagraming conditional statements from words in to symbols. And from those symbols, I would like to practice making conditinal chains and inferences.

Does anybody know where I could find worksheets with lots of questions? Hundreds....

I guess this might not be a possibility for you, but I would suggest taking a logic class - not an "Introduction to Critical Thinking" course, but an "Introduction to Logic" (often a 200-level course).

If you can't do that, a logic textbook with exercizes might be helpful. I'm sure a textbook like that would include some diagramming of conditional statements, but it would also give you some very helpful broader skills.

Of course, if you're sitting the June test, it might be too late for that.

There was a similar post a while back - do a search - and someone had a link to a bunch of worksheets. Also, try playing "if/then" in our LSAT Arcade.

That train has already left. I finished my undergrad last year. Maybe the textbook idea might be a good idea. I have the bibles and the books for the full length powerscore course. I also have all the prep tests up to 62 and am waiting for my superprep books to arrive from LSAC.

And until my superprep books arrive from LSAC, i am unable to proceed with my I the 6 month prep plan from LSATblog. These books are necessary to the study plan.

I figured in the mean time, I would drill my diagraming skills.

I have read and done the worksheets from that already. I just found what seems to be good text book called Simple Formal Logic With Common-Sense Techniques. A couple of chapters are devoted to diagraming. The website associated with the textbook has LOTS of practice sheets which of course are free of charge.

Get the old LSATs and diagram every question that calls for it. Not only will that give you experience/practice diagramming, you'll also get practice determining which questions are best served by diagramming (though most are clear, there are some that aren't obvious).
