Logic grid puzzles

Postby jgloster » Tue Feb 13, 2018 5:43 pm

Will studying these help when I re-take the LSAT in June? I messed up the last logic game on the February LSAT so I'm looking for new ways to study:

It never hurts to exercise the logic muscle of your brain, but the best way to train for a re-take is just to practice, practice, practice - take as many practice tests as you can under timed conditions. For Logic Games, spend more time with the most recent tests, as there seems to have been a shift in difficulty over the last 5 years or so.

I had no idea logic games were invented by Lewis Carroll:

I also heard he might've been a chimo and into drugs (have you read his books???). That's not gonna help at all with my logic game score. That last logic game just really fucked with me.... :cry:

lol, they weren't 'invented' by Lewis Carroll.

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle are known as the 'fathers' of logic and logical thinking in ancient Greek early Western culture in the B.C. times. They played 'logic games' with their fellow philosophers and pupils but they never PUBLISHED any 'logic games' books. The printing press was wasn't invented until 1440 A.D.

Aristotle is known as the father of syllogisms, which are the types of 'logic games' that lame incorrect wiki page describes that are in the book Lewis Carroll published centuries later.

Logic and logical thinking, including 'games of logic' existed in other non-Western cultures that existed before Aristotle, such as in the Mayan culture/civilization that dates back to at least 2000 B.C.

But yes, Lewis Carroll was known for having some fun experimenting with mind altering drugs, which almost certainly inspired him conceiving of and writing the crazy Alice in Wonderland stories which is some trippy $hit!
