Do Logic Games Constantly Change?

Postby scifiguy » Mon Nov 26, 2012 6:28 am

I'm going to be starting LSAT prep in about a month from now.

So far, I've looked at a few logic games and LR problems. What I'm curious about is whether or not the logic games are pretty much the same over time or if the LSAt comes up with totally different types every year?

What I mean is that the games I've seen seem to be of a certain "type." I know obviously they don't give the exact same problems, but am not sure if they give like totally different types of games. From what I've seen, the logic games ask you to put stuff in a certain order or put stuff into a class of things. At least from what I've seen so far (about 8 games or so over the weekend).

For you experienced test takers, do you know if the LSAT asks you to solve the same TYPES of games? Or will there be constantly different types of games asked each LSAT or each year?

Grouping and sequencing games have been the foundation of the LSAT AR section since PT1. There is no reason I know of to think that will change anytime soon.

There are of course other kinds of games, like mapping and hybrid ... but once youve done enough games, youll have basically seen everything in some form.

And while hybrid games (a game where you're grouping and sequencing at the same time) are common, mapping games (and other, rarer games) show up very infrequently. They're also very gimmick-y: once you've done one and found out the trick, you can easily do them all.

One type I haven't seen in a while is the old round table games...but that's just sequencing with a twist, I guess.
