Oh Canada! / Re: Differences in Canadian law schools

For a person to practice in Canada does their legal education has to be from an ABA school or does it not matter?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I need help Assumption questions

Learn how to differentiate necessary assumption question stems from sufficient assumption/justify the conclusion questions/stems.  For necessary assumption questions, learn how to do and employ logical negation of answer choices to test out ones that seem attractive.  etc.

I'm not sure if you can but can you go more into detail on this please.

Studying for the LSAT / I need help Assumption questions
« on: February 27, 2008, 01:50:29 AM »
I'm having a hard time roughly hitting these in a 60% clip, I'd like to improve my score on these questions types. Any idea what I can use or how I could go by this?

seem rather shilly to julie.

kinda smells like that doesn't it?  Multiple threads with the company name in the thread title pop up on a couple of different boards all within the same few days....   

hmmmmm, what a tough mystery to krack! 

Hey Krackers, if it IS you guys doing it, grab some integrity and honesty to do your promotion.  Something like making a user account with your company name and posting an info thread if you want to use free threads to give it a shot, Or pay for some of them google adwords things, and then let this free market capitalism thing run its course and see if you can woo potential customers by demonstrating that you have something worthwhile to offer for sale to them. 

Any company that is dishonest to potential customers/students right from the start, well, people can be the judge of that type of thing for themselves. 


I posted what I posted out of curiousity, I'm not paid stooge. I've been on this site for a long while.

Ok, fair enough, your thread didn't seem that bad with what you said in it.  But lets be honest here, saying you have been on this site for a long time is not entirely accurate.  You registered your user account 7 days before I registered mine back in 2006 but you only have 6 hours and 54 minutes of activity time.  That does not really say that you have been reading much of the stuff.  Whereas I have 113 days, 15 minutes of activity time (ok, maybe I have a problem and need to seek help.)

Check this out: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php?action=stats  look at most activity time on the lower right.  Now how the hell does Cady have over double the activity time of me when she reg'd only two months before me  ??? lol)

But anyway, if you spend a little time reading a bit more of it you can find answers to a lot of your questions.  There is a treasure trove of valuable insight and information all over.  Of course it is mixed in with a lot of BS to wade through, but hey, it's the tubes of the internets! 

Ok,  I have to post this link again:

DJ Ted Stevens Techno Remix: "A Series of Tubes"

It's not a big truck you just dump stuff on! lol


Well I took the LSAT two years ago didn't score so well. I went ahead and spent another two years at my job, now I'm studying again and this time I plan on taking Testmaster as a means of getting prepared. This site is a very useful site in terms of preparation, and I plan on being here a little bit more.

Supposedly, this guy from here wrote their books for it.  If I am remembering correctly he talked about it a little a while back while he was doing it.  I don't know if that means whether it's good or bad.

The web page looked good until I found these parts:

We have shorter lectures. Compare our 60-minute lectures with our competitors’ three-hour lectures. If you are fighting off sleep during long lectures, you will miss important LSAT content and you won’t have the techniques to answer questions on your real LSAT. Examkrackers lectures are brief, so you can stay alert during the entire lecture and you won’t miss any LSAT content.

.... Only Examkrackers has an instructor review....

...

Each 60-minute lecture is followed by a miniature 25-minute LSAT-style test based on the material from the lecture. After the mini-exam, the instructor will spend 30 minutes reviewing each question from the exam and illustrating how a high-scorer uses the techniques. ....

I just don't see how LESS instruction time is a selling point, but that is just my opinion.   :P


Well its not soley 60 minutes, remember they spend an additional 30 minutes reviewing each question from the exam. The only thing I'm not comfortable with is the fact that they only provide 2500 official LSAT questions. I do like the fact that they will go over the exam the LSAT exam that is administered. I do believe the practice exam is with their own created questions. I will call them to find out.

I hear they are getting into the LSAT prep game with books and prep classes. I know they are very well noted for their MCAT material and books, has anyone heard anything worthwhile about them?

I hear powerscore is coming out with a RC bible soon. When are you planning to take your next test?

Some of the tutors roaming around the boards will probably have some good ideas on study materials, but if you have some time to read non-prep books, I've been told reading The Economist, New York Times, etc...is pretty good prep too.

Taking the test in June. Studying on own now, and taking Powerscore or Test Master in April.

Studying for the LSAT / Two questions
« on: February 08, 2008, 11:24:03 AM »
First I first took the LSAT on February 2003 and I did fairly poor. I have now garnered work experience and plan to take the test again. Will I need to notify that I had taken the test that far back? Also Where can I find good study material for the reading comprehension section?

By the way you'll never get accepted into any Bar in this country. They'll check and know.
