LSAT Logic Games

The LSAT contains one analytical reasoning section, informally known as the "logic games" section (LG). Each test's section contains four different "games." The material generally involves rules that govern how to sequence, assign, and group different elements, or "actors." The examinee is presented with a setup of two or more of these rules that govern the game--almost always combining two or more of the rule types--is then expected to diagram the game, and finally is asked to answer 4-7 questions about how the rules interact while using her diagram.

The Zen of 180 curriculum organizes logic games along two dimensions: question types and rule types. We're working to get video introductions and explanations up for each question type as part of our logic games online "book," so check back if what you're looking for is not ready, yet.

Below, we have organized these tasks in the relative order you should master them. However, the Zen LSAT analyzer's algorithm is built to make sure you practice on the tasks that will most efficiently improve your score to your potential, so it is a far better guide to build your self-prep.
