Harder Formal Logic on LSAT

Postby the_pakalypse » Mon Nov 28, 2011 8:57 pm

Increasingly, the LSAT seems to have one or two complexes formal logic Qs (i.e beauty and truth, space communication etc). I do fairly well in LR (0 to -2) in LR combined. Unfortunately I have never really developed my diagramming skills as I have been able to understand the answer to these Qs in some way or the other. But with these really hard LR Qs involving diagramming, I am at a loss. I struggle to really understand what to do and how to approach the question.

I am taking the December LSAT and at this point I feel this is one of the things I can improve on. Should I work on improving my formal logic diagramming skills, or are there any other possible solutions/approaches I should take? If improving formal logic, can anyone recommend other than the Logical Reasoning Bible? I feel like the new Qs involve a much more complex diagramming tactic (i.e conjoined conditional statements requiring brackets and all that snazzy stuff)

... Or should I just hope the really hard FL questions don't show up :P

I agree- there are more and more formal logic questions in newer tests, and much harder than usual. Also taking Dec test here, and formal logic isn't my favorite either. I usually circle FL questions and move on until I finish other questions and come back to it later. That way at least I get time to focus on easier ones more.
