The latest PowerScore LSAT Forum Post of the Day comes from this past weekend (found here), where one of our students asked an interesting, and common, question about cause and effect relationships in LR. PowerScore Senior Developer Jon Denning weighed in to explain in a bit more detail exactly what we mean when we tell students that “causal relationships on the LSAT exist in a vacuum.” This is a great example of not only how the information and scenarios you’ll face on the LSAT can differ from those in the real world, but also of why it’s so critical that you develop a deep understanding of exactly how the test makers think before test day!
Here’s a quick preview. Make sure to check out the full thread to read the entire explanation Jon provided to this student:
The Forum posts selected for this series are chosen because they have a universal quality to them. In other words, we’ve selected posts that contain information that can be used by test takers of any background and score level. So, although the specific question posed by the students may not be one you have, when our instructors answer they have gone beyond the specific question and brought in broader elements that you can use. Consequently, these posts, and the situations therein, are virtually guaranteed to resonate with you on some level.
