Ok I officially hate this book, as I spent all night studying from it, and it just confused the heck out of me. Does anyone have any information on the logic chain in chapter one? It seems like a good notion (but the answers are so wacky that I thought I was not understanding the laws of substitution in a logical context). I also just started studying logic games recently, and I figured that I was the one to blame for the mistakes, and then kept rereading the first part of the intro, and retaking the tests and searching for logical understanding. Really frustrating. If anyone does have any info on how to use the contrapositive appropriately, it would be hugely appreciated.

This book was disappointing. The method it tries to teach is very complex and excessive. Moreover, the text is written in a much more complicated and confusing way than it had to be. I got some good practice out of doing all the sample problems my own way, but they are easier than those on authentic LSAT tests, not least because the answers to some of the questions are very obvious and directly based on the stated rules of the original problem.
