I need dire help on Logical Reasoning Section

Postby ElectricSheep » Thu Aug 16, 2012 7:40 pm

Hi everyone,

Let me start off by saying that I am new to these forums and I apologize if I posted this thread in the wrong area.

I am currently studying for the LSAT right now and plan to take it in December. The books I have bought are the RC, LR, and LG bibles. I have also bought 10 Actual and 10 New Actual Official LSAT Preptests. I just finished Reading Comprehension bible a couple days ago and moved on to the Logical Reasoning Bible.

As of right now, the logical reasoning bible questions are killing me and the way the logical reasoning bible explains it is also confusing to me. To explain in more detail, I immediately get confused when I am reading chapter six and above (I stopped at chapter 8 because I feel like it would be a waste if I didn't fully comprehend the previous chapters). The premises and conclusion is what has be dumbfounded. I know that the diagramming the problem with the arrows is supposed to help you understand it more but I feel that I am missing something.

Can someone help? How exactly do you tackle on the logical reasoning section, more specifically the conditional reasonings, cause and effect, and weaken.

Feel really frustrated right now that I am not "getting it".

Until you start to get the necessary and sufficient concepts down pat, you might want to try working out problems with the indicator word lists from LRB handy (or better yet, memorized). And maybe a short explanation of the unless formula and if and only if... etc. If you can just get your arrows pointed the right way, it helps a lot.

Memorize? dangit really? There is soo much words to memorize. When they gave the lists and they said to memorize...I didn't think they were serious about that. Guess I'll start doing that too.
