Head to Head
Last Friday, while many may have been dreaming of sugar-plums, LSAC was busy releasing December LSAT scores. We have the latest LSAT test and are pleased to present the first installment of our complete test recap. In this article, we shall break down the Logical Reasoning (LR) sections, point out their salient features, and compare them to other recent LR sections and LSAT norms.
What were the most notable features of the December LR sections?
- Increasing frequency of Point at Issue questions, a 50% increase from September and 200% increase from June.
- Another circular reasoning (begging the question) flaw question. This uncommon fallacy has appeared on two LSATs in a row.
- Rough parity between categorical/conditional reasoning and causal reasoning, with causal reasoning remaining marginally more important.
- Few Weaken questions, a return to normal after a spike in September.
- No Main Point questions.
