In-Out Grouping games are a tricky game type designed to measure if-then reasoning. Properly notating conditional relationships and quickly linking them together is key to success in this game type.
This lesson provides a summary review of the Logic Games section and insights into current trends in the Logic Games section.
Intro To Logic Games
Learn how to solve games that require you to define the spatial relationships between elements that are not in a straight line.
Circular Ordering | Advanced
Flaw questions ask you to describe the error of reasoning within the argument. Learn how Reasoning Structures and Trap Answers play a role in this important question type.
Intro To Logical Reasoning
In order to free up the time to adequately process level 4 and level 5 questions, we have to get better at anticipating (prephrasing) correct answers on levels 1 through 3. This includes being savvy about which questions lend themselves to more or less specific predictions.

Inference questions in Reading Comprehension are about what the author says, what the author implies, and what can be indirectly inferred from the author's statements.
Intro To Reading Comp
Paradox questions ask you to resolve an apparent paradox or to explain something strange. If you like Strengthen questions, you'll love Paradox questions.
In this lesson we'll cover the most common game type in the Logic Games section, Standard Ordering. We’ll also cover how to use frames to get faster at Logic Games.
In Stacked Ordering games a good organization reveals hidden inferences which are the key to quickly solving this game type. This lesson looks at how to spot one of these games, how to set one up, and when to use frames.
Conditional logic is the backbone of the LSAT. Ignore it at your own peril. This lesson introduces conditional logic and how it plays a role in the Logical Reasoning section.
Some games use neither Ordering diagrams nor Grouping diagrams. Instead, they describe their own diagram, and usually they involve assigning 2-4 things multiple times to fill in all the blanks.
Beyond The Passage
Main Point and Primary Purpose questions in Reading Comprehension are common. We'll look at where to find the main point in the passage and discuss the most common purposes that LSAT passages recycle.
Main Point & Purpose
Weaken questions rely heavily on causal and comparative Reasoning Structures and frequently include a Trap Answer that just barely misses the mark.
A huge subset of LSAT thinking revolves around being able to complete the comparison when two things are meant to be similar cases, or being able to object to comparative arguments by pointing out meaningful differences.
Strengthen questions on the LSAT are common and have a wide range of difficulty. In this lesson, we present the Reasoning Structures to look out for and the Trap Answers you need to know.
Standard Grouping games ask you to assign a set of elements to several teams. Learn how to create an effective game board, notate the rules, and create frames for this game type.
Stacked Grouping games are about organizing your game board well. Learn how to pick a variable for the base of your game board and make inferences before you answer the questions.
LSAT authors frequently present a Curious Fact and then pose/assume some Causal Explanation for that idea, leading us to ponder the plausibility of that explanation and the possibility of other explanations.
On Must Be True questions in Logical Reasoning, the right answer is something you can prove. Learn how they rely heavily on conditional logic and comparative reasoning.
Must Be True
Passage Maps in Reading Comprehension leverage the purpose of information to help you decide what content to prioritize and retain.
When logic games get tough, it's often because they have Non 1:1 correspondence between the number of players and positions. Learn how to use frequency distributions to make key inferences.
Flaw questions are more common than any other type in Logical Reasoning, and nearly half of all answer choices refer to ten Famous Flaws that you need to know.
Some students struggle with science heavy RC passages, and science-heavy LR questions can similarly be tougher to understand. We'll try some "heavy" examples that deal with geology, archeology, astronomy, and biology.
Sufficient Assumption questions in Logical Reasoning are all about finding the missing link in the argument.
The rules all come together in Tree Ordering games. Connect the rules to build trees that help you see implicit relationships within the game.
Hybrid games combine ordering and grouping for an extra special challenge. In this lesson, we cover how to spot one, how to set one up, and what to look for when creating frames.
Learn how to deal with Reasoning Structures and Trap Answer patterns on Most Supported questions in the Logical Reasoning section.
Agree/Disagree questions in Logical Reasoning ask you to identify the answer that both speakers address. This lesson covers important differences in the task set forth in the question stem and the common trap answers to look out for.
Some questions have keywords or highlighted lines in the question stem that point us to a specific part of the passage, offering us some of the easier and quicker RC problems.
Frames can be a powerful tool for setting up some games, but not for others. Discuss how and when to frame, and when to just move on.
Role questions ask you to determine the role of a claim in an argument. Learn about premises, conclusions, opposing points, and more.
This lesson covers Reasoning Structures and Trap Answers common to Necessary Assumption questions and looks at how the correct answer creates a linking or a defending relationship.
Method questions ask you to identify the one answer choice that captures the reasoning for the larger argument of the stimulus. This lesson will teach you how to identify and use process of elimination to answer Method questions.
Most questions in comparative passage sets require that you understand how the two passages are similar and how they are different. This lesson covers how to adjust your reading process for this type of passage.
This lesson is about managing the time you have to complete a section. We'll cover things like analysis paralasis, skipping questions, and reviewing questions with time at the end of the section.
Parallel questions ask you to match reasoning between the logic presented in the question stem and the answer choices. It is a rare but important question type to recognize and tackle.
Logic Games sometimes have different kinds of players to be assigned. In this lesson learn how the LSAT use Subgroups to create many rules from one.
Some of the hardest and most time-consuming questions in RC can be the ones that go beyond the passage: Analogy, Application, Strengthen/Weaken, Last Sentence, and Title/Audience.
Beyond the Passage
Standard Ordering games are the most common game type in Logic Games. This lesson will cover how to set up a logic game, how to notate rules consistently, and when to use frames.
Must Be True
Knowing how to correctly interpret, diagram, and manipulate conditional logic only impacts about 20% of questions, but it often impacts 50% or more of students' most fixable errors.
Main Point questions in Reading Comprehension are common. We'll look at where to find the main point in the passage and the types of ideas that tend to serve as the main point.

Method questions ask you to identify the one answer choice that captures the reasoning for the larger argument of the stimulus. This lesson will teach you how to identify and use a process of elimination to answer Method questions.
Parallel questions take more effort to complete than other questions. Consider structure and validity and they won't necessarily be harder.
