Take the earlier class.  You won't have a problem if you do some of the Monday homework along with the Wednesday homework over the long weekend before your next Monday's class.  Very few classes build on the last class in such a way that you're in trouble if you haven't done all the work before moving on.

Welcome aboard.

Oh, and tag.

Ideally = preferably.  They are synonyms.

Nothing in the stimulus suggests that social science is in any way not scientific, just that it can't use this one ideal part of science.  E does not have to be true because nothing in the stimulus proves that social science is ALWAYS unscientific.  Not by a long shot.

Your answer key is not wrong, and the question is not total bull.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Diagraming unless
« on: October 07, 2008, 12:09:41 AM »
I am working thru the LRB and got a little caught up on the conditional chapter. Any tips on how to always get the
sufficient and necessary straight 100% of the time other than memorize every preceding indicator?

Think about all the possibilities.

I'm not going to the movies unless it's raining.

Well, there are four things you might know:

I'm at the movies.
I'm not at the movies.
It's raining.
It's not raining.

Look at each of those, and look again at the statement.

What do you know if I'm at the movies?  Well, since I won't go to the movies unless it's raining, if you see me at the movies, it must be the case that it was raining.  Thus:

Movies -> Raining

What do you know if I'm not at the movies?  Well, the rule says I won't go to the movies unless it's raining, but it doesn't say that I HAVE to go to the movies if it rains, so I don't know anything if I'm not at the movies.

You can always reason these things out and word them into if/then statements and diagram them easily.  Just think through the possibilities and play them against the meaning of the conditional statement. 

Eventually it becomes second nature.
