Skill 1 – How To Accurately Understand The Conditions
If you don’t understand the conditions, you will be unable to make accurate inferences from them. Every Logic Games condition or rule is a “built in” reading test.
LSAT designers are very skilled in obscuring important information. As a general principle you must understand:
– positioning issues (where do things go)
– numbering issues (how many objects are you working with? Are there too few, too many, or is it one-to-one correspondence?
– How does the order of the conditions influence the way that you must understand them?
– Quantifiers: all, some, many, exactly, only, etc.
