December 2009 PrepTest 59 LSAT Logic Game 1, 1-5

I uploaded another interactive, flash-based explanation for LSAT logic-games, this one about different law firm departments--family, health, injury, labor, probate, securities, and tax law--and whether they are on the top, middle, or bottom floors of the firm's offices.  Rivetting stuff, really, from section 1 of PrepTest 59.

Because the game has only two possible assignments for three of the elements and two more permutations of the rest of the elements, this is the rare game where it is useful to diagram different spaces for each possibility.  The min/max element of this game is crucial to answering three of the five questions, while the other two are easier with some easy deductions.

For those of you who are interested, you can buy the Zen of 180 logic games pencast explanations.  Posted below is a static image of the newest pencast, as well as an example pencast from the sample June 2007 LSAT.
