I'm a math minor, CS emphasis and sometimes I convert the problems into if then else statements or while loops, stuff like that for the logical reasoning. Doesn't work for all of them and I don't know if it will work for you, but sometimes writing a the problem underneath it helps me to focus on the logic rather than the words.You have plenty of time to work on these two sections, though. You should be fine.
Could you give me an example how you would use if/else statements and while loops to solve LSAT type questions?
I went to the library and checked out a couple of books on logic tonight - don't know if they will help, but they seem to deal with analyzing arguments in english instead of strictly mathematical representation of stuff at least. Yes, VB isn't too bad. Felt like i was programming in Pascal again like in High School or something. My work experience is mostly in Java doing Enterprise apps, and my undergrad work was in C/C++, so a dose of VB was a little grade-school.-lou
