What was so great about his teaching methods. What does he do well?

Thanks for the tip. I often find it easier to work it our in my head than to diagram. This may be due to my lack of diagramming skills, however. Do you find it easier to diagram? Do you feel that it take up more time than to just figure it out intuitively?

I'm still not sure if Lawness is asking if a necessary condition and a sufficient condition can happen simultaneously (meaning that if these things were really happening, could they happen at the same time or does one have to come first), or if (s)he's asking if a necessary condition can also be a sufficient condition and vice versa--but here's something that might help regardless. Logically speaking, 'necessary' and 'sufficient' are pretty much technical terms that refer to the logical relationship between two sentences/ideas, rather than to the actual relationship of whatever is being discussed. In other words, here's a sentence:
I was really asking if they can occur in real life terms simultaneously because I was trying to make sense of the two with a real world example. It helps to think of the two instances/events in logical terms and without subscribing meaning to them. For diagramming purposes, the sufficient condition ALWAYS comes first, right? At least that is what LRB says.

No, nothing in particular. I was just wondering. There seems to be a statistic for everything else! I feel confident in recognizing the relationship between the two conditions. The LSAT testmakers are real tricky in describing the conditional relationships. I have been learning the LRB strategies. Are there any other strategies out there that are helpful and easy to understand?

Are there any statistics that speak to how often sufficient and necessary conditions occur simultaneously on the LSAT?

Sorry for the lack of content. I just did not make the connection that both conditions can occur simultaneously. I thought one had to occur for the other to occur but I did understand that either can come first. So, basically a necessary condition can also be a sufficient condition and visa versa, right? In order for them to happen at the same time, I need to conceptualize the event co-occurring in my head. Is this correct?
