Unplugged Prep

Does the LSAT Repeat Previous Logic Games Questions?

Does the LSAT repeat questions from previous tests?

Yes and no. You will not see questions repeated word-for-word. That would be too easy. However, you may see games that feature extremely similar methods of reasoning – sometimes only with small changes to the rules and variables. Although the games aren’t identical, they’re extremely similar.
You know you’ve been tutoring the LSAT for too long when you notice these things.
In horror movies, the teenagers are frightened (understandably) when their enemy rises from the dead. Luckily, the LSAT is not a horror movie. If you’re lucky enough to recognize your enemy on test day, you’ll have the tools to defeat it.
(For you new folks, PrepTests are previously-administered LSAT exams.)
