Prepping for the LSAT? There Is A New Type of Logic Game Question

The following post is from our friends at Atlas LSAT Test Prep.

You’ve taken the LSAT! Hoorah . . . but how did you do? If you’re one of the many folks considering whether to re-take or not, you should take a look at this blog post.

One interesting development in the latest LSATs is the introduction of a new strain of question in logic games. The LSAT has begun to ask which rule change would have no effect on the scenarios possible under the rest of the game’s constraints. One of the impressive aspects of the LSAT is how it continues to evolve so that it remains an accurate assessment of one’s ability to make inferences. Strict executors were thrown for a loop by those questions since they’re new and not directly covered in most courses or books. Flexible test-takers were able to adapt. One of the major considerations with such a question — and a line of thinking that can help you avoid the time-consuming testing out of each answer choice – is “How does the removed rule affect the game?” All rules limit the possibilities, so the challenge is to figure out how that happens in relation to the other rules.
