Logical reasoning is one of the most important sections of the LSAT, it comprises almost half of the paper, and this section can be the game-changer for your admission to a top law school in the country, one of the major problems that an aspirant face, particularly in the LR section is that after taking a considerable number of mocks, the score in this section reaches to a threshold and becomes static. 

The best way to get through this cobweb is PRACTISE, I know it might look to you as a fairly simple solution to a complex issue, but it is the best way to get through this, practicing with 

The right approach is what is needed to get through this. Logical reasoning can be termed as the most mentally tasking section of the LSAT paper; the best way to tackle it is by solving sectional tests almost on a regular basis; the best way to solve them is by doing them in a time-bound manner.

Solving 25-26 questions in 35 minutes should be a step in the right direction (you should solve more questions than asked in the given time period to increase your problem-solving ability, and this will also enhance your speed giving you more time to revise your paper). 

One of the reasons that your score has become fairly static is that many aspirants start the logical reasoning section from the first question; it is not a very wise choice, to be honest. The easier questions should be dealt with first; after that, one should move to the difficult ones. 

The critical reasoning questions are usually divided into 4 categories which are 

  1. Strength/weakness
  2. Assumption
  3. Parallel Reasoning
  4. Alternate Conclusion

In order to maximize the score in this section, one should first begin with strength/weakness and assumption questions. This is because the answer is usually found in the prompt, making these quick and more straightforward. Then, with your remaining time, finish up with parallel reasoning and alternative conclusion questions.

Usually, we see that 1-2 options can easily be eliminated while reading them. Hence, the best way to get past these questions is to devote our time to choose the right option among the confusing ones by skimming the passage and the options in the first 30 seconds and then reading the rest of the passage and the options in the meantime. 

One of the major advantages of this rule is that while skimming the passage and the options in the first half, our mind subconsciously pictures them, and it becomes fairly easy for us to comprehend as after picturing it, it becomes very easy for us to think from the author’s perspective.

The first and foremost thing is to understand what kind of questions can be dealt with through this method, and the answer is

(a) Tabular arrangement questions 

(b) Clock hour questions

The basic guideline for all questions applies here as well, and you will need first to be extremely careful while reading the questions because even a slight error in the diagrams can cause you a world of pain. 

Try to absorb all the information given in the questions and then proceed with the diagrams. Don’t waste your time drawing elaborate diagrams because ultimately, only you need to understand it and not the examiner. 

You will find the difference in your accuracy and time management after mastering this approach, and in no time, you will be running out of things to study in logical reasoning.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: practice is the only way to get better. Consider it a must-do routine that will eventually determine your level of success. You can never be 100 percent sure what's in store for you when it comes to logical thinking, so it's best to plan for the worse and hope for the best. 

If you think the LSAT problems are simple, consider practicing the GMAT reasoning questions, which will put your talents to the test.

Try to improve your speed once you've mastered the general technique for tackling these questions. 

Speed checks are essential for every competitive exam, and the LSAT is no exception. You should bear in mind that, unlike other legal entrance examinations where you can take up GK and solve it fast, you won't have that luxury here, so study this element, and you'll see how strong your logical thinking skills have grown.
