Semi-interesting news for all of you June LSAT testers, a third main test day will NOT be added for this administration. The main testing days will be Friday, June 10th and Saturday, June 11th. Accommodated and international LSAT testing will be on Tuesday, June 14th.
Great, now that we’ve got the logistical information sorted and a little more than a week to go until the test itself, how about what you’re all thinking: what we may or may not see on the test itself?
Here is my best stab at the section, based on months and months of empirical research.
Game 1 – Unstable Grouping
In this one, you will have to organize two groups out of a possible seven employees (say, those working in the office and those working remotely). Watch out for rules that can help you quickly break the game into scenarios.
Game 2 – 1:1 Ordering
The game with plenty of softballs turns out to be the second game (possibly six musicians playing instruments in Central Park, likely featuring the erhu). This has been showing up increasingly in recent LSATs, wherein the first game is doable but might take extra minutes if you try to brute force your way through without some strategic thinking (ahem, s-c-e-n-a-r-i-o-s).
Game 3: In and Out Grouping
This one is all about simplifying the relationships. An interior designer will have to choose some small and large appliances to place in their high-end kitchen design. Space limitations will restrict the options.
Game 4: Tiered Ordering
One word: scenarios.
Expect a lot of what you’ve been practicing long and hard these past several months. Sure, there will be mistaken correlation for causation a few times. And, necessary conditions will be treated as though they are sufficient. Personal attacks will be a tried and true way to defeat an argument. But, also be on the lookout for when a comparative statement is taken to imply an absolute claim. Simply because the economic incentive to pursue a course of action is greater than it once was, that does not imply that there is a legitimate incentive.
When I look into my crystal ball, I am also seeing either two or three very difficult Sufficient questions that will require quick and accurate diagramming. In these questions, conditional premises are intended to support a conditional conclusion. However, there is one big premise that is missing, and this forms the sufficient assumption.
The makers of the test have been ramping up the difficulty of the first and second passages, so stay loose. In terms of predictions, there will be a passage devoted to the writings of Gabriel García Márquez. There will also be a comparative legal passage on structures of authority and comparative criminal procedure. Other than that, my advice is to keep your eyes on the author. If you understand the author’s stance, you understand enough to answer the bulk of the questions asked.
Good luck to everyone during this next round! You’ve studied. You’re ready. Now, go knock ‘em dead!
