Studying for the LSAT / Re: Help!!!

I answered them all just in enough time but it was weird.. I honestly thought I had a good grasp on the material.  After the first test..I went through some of my wrong answers finding out why I got them wrong and felt really confident on the second test.  I actually did worse!  I've noticed there's plenty of material to buy online for logical and analytic reasoning to study from but I don't know a good strategy for reading comprehension or if it's even realistic to drastically raise your score in this section.

Studying for the LSAT / Help!!!

Hello...I just started my preparation for the upcoming test in February by taking two practice tests.  I did surprisingly well on Logical Reasoning and Analytic Reasoning but I did HORRIBLE on the section I feared most..Reading Comprehension.  I have no idea how to study for this section and would really really appreciate any tips.  Thanks!

Yes - why just those disciplines? For my money English Lit is the very best preparation for the study of law: it is not trivially easy (and absurd) like economics; it has a better relationship to the way that lawyers think than engineering or any of the other sciences; and it isn't a hobby dressed up as an academic field like international relations or business or political science.

Law is literature. Period.

You're fat.

That's my whole point..it's a dumb term.  Trust me...I loved watching African documentaries in High School and seeing moron after moron refer to the Africans as African American.  If you have the term African American then of course we all know what it implies but as a future lawyer you could easily argue for it's literal meaning which is "AFRICAN American"  This inclued Egyptians and yes white South Africans.  It's simply a flawed term and that being so I believe whether it's the LSAT or the SAT or the GMAT or any other random piece of paper that forces us to differentiate and seperate ourselves from other races in America (we are all Americans damnit) if you are of "African" decent you should be able to mark African American.

what's less believable about this board: that we everyone is really really rediciously goodlooking or that everybody got above 170? both are claimed by all on this board.

Well I got a 158, but I'm not lying about my hotness.  Sometimes nature makes a few tradeoffs.  We should make a new poll:

If you could only have one, would you rather be incredibly hot or have a score in the 99th percentile? 

LOL You should definately start that poll

Do we really need Mama Moni to step in and clarify?  They put African American because that's is what BLACK people in this country call themselves.  A generation (or two) ago it might have been colored and before that it was negro.  Most check boxes say Black/African American because of this.  If you're not racially/ethnically black (and I'm sure that we're all intelligent enough to know what that means) then you should not check it.  End of story.  That includes all North Africans of Arab/Middle Eastern descent in the 'non-AfricanAmerican' category.

Hispanic is different because it relates to ethnicity/national origin, not race.  You can be black or white and be Hispanic.

Any questions?

For a potential future lawyer you missed one clear thing...no matter what is implied...it is written as "AFRICAN AMERICAN" and hmmm...last time I checked Egypt was in Africa.  I don't care why it was written or how it's a PC term.  As for "African - black" that was the original point I was arguing against.  If you go to Tunisia...there are Arab and African looking people..but what if a person is mixed?  What if a person tans better?  Is there going to be the PC police to see where they fall?  If you have the term African American and a few unintended people fall under that blanket than too bad change the term. NUFF SAID ;)
