Studying for the LSAT / Time to accept bets!!!
« on: March 01, 2007, 05:43:49 PM »
Ok, since it is too late to jinx our luck at February LSAT, I propose we all post our predictions as to what our scores are going to be. I will then put all entries into one post, so we can compare after who was right and who was way off :P It will still count as correct if your prediction is +/- 2 points. This way people can't edit their predictions after seeing their scores tomorrow. Now, go!

My prediction is         158 :(
Turtle Sandwich           165
djh000                             174
m1                                      168
lawgirl442                       171
A.J.                                     171
LatherRinseRepeat      163
LSATie                              164
Patrick.                            175
not my leg                      178
carthageinruins           170
killjoy26                         167
rugercaptain                162
The Legal Ladies Man   160

Hi everyone,
So, I am still working on the Logic Bible these days. I think that the book helpes a lot, but I still don't get many games right :( It's like if I get a question wrong and then go to the explanation, then I am like "Oh, OK, now I understand..", but it seems like there is just a too great variety of games, and I am still making stupid mistakes (mainly on grouping games).
Interestingly enough, I am amazed how easy it is to feel stupid after not scoring well enough on the games. I have never been great at math, but the test creators assure that no math skills needed to solve the games. So, I am confused.
Yesterday, one girl that I've met, told me that she didn't have enough time to prepare for the LSAT, so she had only about one month to study for the test (and haven't even seen the LB and hundreds of preptests). And, guess what, she scored a perfect 170!!!!!!! :o
After stories like this one, I feel quite despaired (no, not about becoming a lawyer, but about scoring well enough on the LSAT). I am willing to spend lots of time studying for the October test, but I was wondering if there is such as a thing as a some sort of predisposition to score well on this test? For example, that girl, did she develop any specific sklls throughout her school life which were invaluable help to her on the LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / June 1996 test 19 -- LG question
« on: June 26, 2004, 04:44:38 PM »
Hi guys, so I've started to work on 10 More Actual preptests now, and it doesn't seem to be too bad, but here is one question from LG section that I just don't get for some reason.
If you can help that would be awesome, thanks!
 :-*
In a theater company, 4 two-day workshops - L,P,R,S are conducted over the course of 5 days, Mon-Friday.
The rules are:
The two days on which a given workshop is in session are consecutive
On each of the 5 days, at least one, but no more than two, of the workshops are in session.
The workshops on P and R begin no earlier than the day immediately following the second day of the workshop on L.


Ok, so the problem with this game for me arises from this particular question:
12. If the workshop on L is the only workshop in session on Monday, which one fo the following could be true?
A) The workshops on R and S are both on Tuesday
B) The workshop on R is the only workshop on Wednesday
C) The workshop on S and R are both in session on Wednesday and Thursday
D) The workshops on S and P are both on Thursday.

Studying for the LSAT / Confusing questions from prep. LSAT
« on: April 23, 2004, 03:10:33 PM »
Ok, I think that every person studying for the LSAT often gets confused by some of the questions from various sections of the prep. LSATs. So I thought why don't we post those questions which we don't really understand, especially if a prep. book doesn't have an explanation.
Ok, here is one question from LR which in my opinion can have 2 best answers, but maybe you think differently and can help me to understand why I got it wrong.

Mary, a veterinary student, has been assigned an experiment in mammalian physiology that would require her to take a healthy, anesthetized dog and subject it to a drastic blood loss in order to observe the physiological consequences of schock. The dog would neither regain consciousness nor survive the experiment. Mary decides not to do the assignment.
Mary's decision most closely accords with which one of the following principles:
A) All other things being equal, gratuitously causing any animal to suffer pain is unjustified.
B) Taking the life of an animal is not justifiable unless doing so would immediately assist in saving several animal lives or in protecting the health of a person.
C)The only sufficient justification for experimenting on animals is that future animal suffering is thereby prevented.
D) Practicing veterinarians have a prof. obligation to strive to prevent the unnecessary death of an animal whose prospects for recovery are dim.
E)No one is ever justified in acting with the sole intention of causing the death of a living thing, be it animal or human.

Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Which prepbook to choose?
« on: April 21, 2004, 12:33:51 PM »
Hi everyone,
I've just ordered the "Powerscore Logic Bible" and "10 More Actual LSAT tests" on amazon.com.. Now I am wondering what is the difference between the "10 Actual" and "10 More Actual LSAT tests"? I still have time to modify my order, so which book would you suggest?  ::)
Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / What was your initial score on LSAT?
« on: April 18, 2004, 10:52:02 PM »
Hi everyone,
I am glad that there is a site dedicated specifically to all those poor students (like me)  :D who spend the biggest portion of their time preparing for the LSAT. Anyway, I just wanted to ask what was your 1st score on a simulated (at home or elsewhere) LSAT? How did you handle the logic games section of the test when you first saw it? Also, how many hours per day did you dedicate to prepare for the test (taking to consideration that you have some light work load at school), and how long did it take for you to see considerable improvements in performance on the LSAT? I know it sounds like a lot of questions,  ??? but I have just started to study for my June test, and have so many questions... ;) Thank you!
