Old Logical Reasoning Sections

Postby ws81086n » Sat Sep 01, 2012 5:41 pm

From what I've gathered, the logical reasoning from the 90's is more difficult than today's. Are there any particularly difficult old LR sections that anyone could recommend? I took one the other day, and I thought it was great practice. The correct answers to a few of the difficult questions seemed less obvious and harder to glean, requiring a little more critical thought. Though I would say the parallel reasoning questions seemed easier than those from today. For those who have taken the LSAT and took the old LR's as part of a study plan, how did the number that you missed compare?

Thanks for your time,

There's no significant difference in difficulty. Modern LR has no two part questions and is constructed a little bit better but that's the only difference.

I split up LR by type via cambridge's website (1-38) and found it extremely useful.

If I had all the time in the world to study, I'd probably retake old LR sections to supplement my studies, but since I'm a retaker now, I've just been retaking PT40+ LR sections.

I feel like the old LR questions tend to have longer and maybe a little bit more complicated stimuli. But conceptually they seem pretty similar.
