Introduction of Linear Ordering

Linear ordering games are the easiest games, and fortunately they also appear the most often. They can be classified according to whether they order elements spatially or sequentially.
  • Spatial games
  • Hybrid games
  • Sequential games
We will study in turn each of the three types of linear ordering games. At the end of most lessons, you will find a warm-up drill. The drills are not remedial. In fact, some are quite challenging. They are designed to bring to the fore some of the subtle issues with which you will have to contend when solving a game, but in a more tractable form. Unlike LSAT games, the drills are presented in ascending order of difficulty. Following the warm-up drill is a “mentor” exercise. A mentor exercise is a full-length game which offers hints, partial solutions, and insight in the right hand column. You should work through each mentor exercise slowly, giving yourself time to study the game carefully. Finally, several full length games are presented for you to solve on your own. If you intend to skip a game when you take the LSAT, give yourself 12 minutes to complete the exercise; otherwise you have only 9 minutes.
It is essential that you time yourself during this exercise, because time is the greatest obstacle when solving games. After studying games for a short while, students often develop an unwarranted self-confidence. Given sufficient time to solve them, many games appear simple. Be forewarned that you must not only master how to solve games—you must master how to solve them rapidly. It is one matter to solve a game with ample time in the quiet and comfort of your home; it is quite another to solve it in a room filled with 100 other people—all racing against the clock.
