Studying for the LSAT / Re: Yet Another LR Puzzler: Greasy Apples
« on: July 16, 2004, 05:50:35 PM »
I’m not sure I can provide a better explanation, but I’ll give it a try.  I think the first sentence is just there to take up space, it’s not really important (because we don’t know if greasy=pesticides).  With the second sentence, we learn that the cafeteria sells the apples in the condition they receive them, so in other words they are never washed by the cafeteria.  The next two sentences are where the assumption is made.  The arguer takes the general statement, “Most fruit is sprayed with dangerous pesticides before it is harvested, and is dangerous until it is washed” and tries to apply it to this specific cafeteria’s apples therefore making the assumption that the apples in the cafeteria are still covered with pesticides.  A red flag should go up in reading that because his logic is not necessarily true because the apples could very well be washed in-between the harvest and their arrival at the cafeteria, and answer choice A describes this angle of  the arguer's assumption.  I understand where you were coming from by choosing B, but the argument isn’t really depending on that. Also, I think choice B is wrong because it talks about “most pesticides” and we don’t know if “most” includes the pesticide was sprayed on these specific apples. The rest of the answer choices are out of scope.

hey untouchable,

were the techniques and practice problems w/ the powerscore materials pretty similar to those in the logical reasoning bible (or at least what you saw)?

Yeah, they were very similar.

I believe the weekend course book has all the same concepts and everything as the logic games bible, but it doesn't go as indepth with practice problems. I think it would probably be to your advantage to buy the lgb and work through it before your course. That way the concepts are more of a review for you. 

As far as the logical reasoning bible goes, I think it's going to be really good. I took the powerscore full length course back in April and the first few chapters were online for us to use.

Before I took PS, I had done quite a few practices tests from 10 Actual lsat preptests and 10 more preptests that lsac publishes and I didn't have a problem with being too familar with the questions in class at all. Rachelb1 is right in that the same stimulus may show up with a completely different question. 

You are correct, it's because of the empty table. Because in that situation p/q would have have to be at tables 1 or 2 (doesn't matter which) then M would be at 3. So, O can't sit at table 4 because that would force N (N can't be at 3,5, or 7) to sit at table 6 leaving tables 5 or 7 to still be filled. Since L is the only variable left tables 5 or 7 would be left vacant (according to the rules 5,6,7 can't be empty).

I hope that helped a little.

I recently took the powerscore full length course and I thought it was worth it.

Or for your actual index number this site will caclulate it for each school, then compare your numbers to those listed under each school.

You could just plug your numbers into  that will give you a rough idea.

You may want to make sure that you'll be at a test center with adequate desk space. If you find out that you'll be in a lecture hall with flip top desks, I've heard you're allowed to bring in a small board to give yourself more room to work.  You might feel stupid carrying it, but if you need it by all means do it.
