Assemption VS Strengthen

by towerSpider » Sat Mar 14, 2015 1:49 am
Hello all

I am having very tough time understanding difference between Assumption and Strengthen questions. Can you refer to me some online article/guide on this?

Hi towerSpider,

Most practice materials (books, Courses, etc.) will explain the difference in these question types, show you examples and give you plenty of practice. What practice materials have you been using so far?

Its not online, but my favorite resource for CR in general (and it does break down assumption and strengthen questions separately) is the LSAT Superprep book. There is an introductory section where the writers (LSAT writers) break down that question type (it is the LSAT's version of CR) and it is a great treatment of CR in general. You can get a very cheap used version of the book online.
