Logic Games Masterclass I
Tuesday, September 20th | 8:30 – 9:30 pm EST
Learn the most efficient process for evaluating the Logic Games section on the LSAT and see how to apply that process to a real Logic Game from an Official LSAT PrepTest. This masterclass features strategies on how to identify a game type, create a sketch, notate rules, and make deductions as well as how to understand levels of truth, identify question types, and apply question-specific strategies.
Logic Games Masterclass II
Wednesday, September 21st | 8:30 – 9:30 pm EST
Review the process for evaluating the Logic Games section covered in the prior masterclass and apply that process to another real Logic Game from an Official LSAT PrepTest. Learn additional strategies on how to identify a different game type within the Logic Games section and how to create a sketch, notate rules, and make deductions for the different game type.
Interested students can register for free through the link below to get access to both LSAT Masterclasses.
Students who are unable to attend the masterclasses can view the recordings and get access to more than three hours of recorded LSAT instruction along with resources to learn more about the LSAT and the law school application process by signing up for a free preview of LSAT Ally’s LSAT Prep Course.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I am always happy to help!
The workshop will be conducted by Rachel Sheffield, a veteran TestMasters instructor with an official LSAT score of 177 and over 18 years of LSAT teaching experience. Attendees will be challenged with a series of difficult LSAT questions and Rachel will demonstrate the most effective methods for tackling them.
