Tips for Taking the LSAT Logical Reasoning Section
Part of the LSAT For Dummies Cheat Sheet
The logical reasoning section of the LSAT consists of short paragraphs, or "arguments", followed by single questions. This section of the LSAT tests your understanding of how arguments are constructed and how well you can strengthen or weaken the arguments. Use these tips when working on the logical reasoning section of the LSAT, which is half your score:
Be quick but careful.
Read the question before you read the argument.
Read the argument. Identify the conclusion and the key evidence.
Try to answer the question in your head before you read the answer choices.
Read all the answers and eliminate wrong ones.
Choose an answer.
Forget about that question and move on to the next one.
