In this week’s edition of MSS Logical Reasoning sample question, we examine the story of Farnold, a famous movie actor, who has come under fire for fathering an illegitimate child. Now, while he tries to get back in the movie business, certain head honchos think he might bring too much bad publicity to the studio. This one is what we call a “strengthen” question, and your job will be to figure out how to strengthen Farnold’s argument that he is a big enough box office draw to negate the negative press. Enjoy!

We at MSS bring to you our second installment of practice logical reasoning questions. Today, Misha analyzes the story of Lisa Logan, and what steps we need to take to validly conclude that her parents have failed in their parenting (odds are, it shouldn’t be too difficult to conclude that). If you have any questions after the video, head on over to the discussion board or voice your confusion in the comments. Check out the text of the question below.

Today’s installment of MSS brings you a free practice LSAT problem. LSAC doesn’t allow us to disseminate real problems on the intra webs, so it was written by the staff at MSS, and explained by Blueprint LSAT Prep instructor Misha Silin, who teaches our Northridge class. This question will test your fundamental logic skills and polish your diagramming abilities.
The best way to go through the problem is to try it on your own, then watch the video for the explanation. Without further ado, enjoy!

It’s been a while. Life at Blueprint has been pretty busy, resulting in my extended hiatus from the blog. But it’s good to be back.
First, let me reintroduce myself. Riley. UCLA grad. Co-owner of Blueprint. Scored 176 or higher four times on the LSAT. Taught more LSAT students in the last six years than anyone in the universe (I think). Unfortunately nicknamed the LSAT Ninja.
Great, now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk LSAT. I recently started teaching a course gearing up for the June LSAT. In the hopes of aiding my team (as well as all of the other LSAT students out there), I will be authoring weekly blog posts with LSAT tips.
This week: sufficient and necessary.
As anyone knows, Charlie Sheen would ace the LSAT, much like he’s aced living; he’s not just winning, he’s bi-winning. However, the women trapped in his sordid web need to know exactly how well they’re doing in the game of life (lower case to avoid infringement). The following logical reasoning question will test your diagramming abilities as well as provide them with an answer:
Any woman who lives with Charlie Sheen is a goddess. Charlie Sheen lives exclusively in the one-and-only Sober Valley Lodge. Brooke Mueller no longer lives with Charlie Sheen. If you are bi-winning, then you are Charlie Sheen, or you live with him.

It’s the Holiday season, and Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah to you and yours. Here at Blueprint, we thought we would mix something fun and warm (the holidays, presents, spending time with loved ones) with something a little more stressful and daunting (an LSAT drill that is hard as f***). Take your time on this one, but try to make those key deductions. More to the point, get ready for this to rock your world.
Without further ado, here is a holiday-themed logic game to get you in the spirit of the season:
As I discussed a few weeks ago, the LSAT likes to throw a bunch of seemingly useless information at you. You then must sift through all this crap, finding the logical nuggets of corn. But often this crap is actually real stuff, which makes the process just a little more meaningful. You can console yourself knowing that you’re learning something that’s at least slightly informative.
The Once and Future Portuguese King – February 1996
According to this rather long LR question, in 1578 the Portuguese and the Moroccans got into a bit of a scuffle, and King Sebastian of Portugal met his end.
Today’s October 30th, and you know what that means? That’s right, bitches, it’s the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repressions in post-Soviet states! So let’s all have a moment of silence for that. But tomorrow it’s Halloween, … Read Entire Article…
