Studying for the LSAT / Re: Updated Logic Games Bible?
« on: June 08, 2008, 05:43:06 PM »
Um, I wouldn't. Unless they take all the mistakes out. I noticed several when I was going through them (I don't just mean errors of reasoning but actual spelling errors and the such). I think all the basics are pretty much in there. I doubt they will have a new technique that will help anything. Have you tried looking at other sources like SuperPrep maybe if you are still having trouble? I think the best thing about the LG Bible is teaching you setups, from there, it's just execution. It's hard to improve on that but that's just my two cents.

Studying for the LSAT / LG And/Or rules
« on: June 08, 2008, 03:06:36 PM »
Hi, I know I'm a new poster, but I've been really appreciative of all the info in this thread for LSAT prep. I just have a question/problem.  Normally, LG are not problem but occasionally I'm becoming confused about when to use an 'and' and when to use  an 'or'. I recognize this is a pretty basic english grammar skill but anyway...

for example, in LSAT super prep, test prep B, in the second game there is a rule that deals with and/or. I don't think I'm allowed to post the rule though so anyway.....

I had originally diagrammed this as (no L) AND (no O) then it must contain F AND S. The answer has it as (no L) OR (no o) then it must....

why it is an 'or' and not an 'and'? I also have this problem with 'nor'. For example if it said, If the park contains neither L nor O, then it contains F and S. I get confused if I should diagram that as (no L) or (no O), or, (no L) and (no O).

Apologies for lack of ability in being able to diagram this properly but I hope someone understands what I'm talking about and is able to help, or can redirect me!
