Studying for the LSAT / Assumption and Justify questions
« on: August 03, 2007, 09:03:47 AM »
I try using Assumption Negation technique to find the correct answer for the Assumption questions but i STILL get wrong answer :(.
Justify question are even worse!

I was wondering if you guys have any general tips on how to attack these two question types.

The positive side is that i prephrase my answers much better now

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT is turning me into a monster
« on: July 29, 2007, 10:04:28 PM »
In addition to becoming annoying, i am becoming a biatch as well.
My guyfriend and i will be taking Sept. LSAT and he does not get basic concepts. I try to explain and feel bad for him. On the other hand, i tell myself that i need more people like him to have a lenient scale.
The worst part is that  I am a nice person by nature...well not any more

Studying for the LSAT / energy drink?
« on: July 29, 2007, 12:52:37 PM »
the worst part of my homework time is when i when i forget certain important words in the stimulus and choose the wrong answer or sit for a long time picking an answer and when glancing at the stimulus see that remembering a certain word would have made me pick a correct answer earlier.

Guys, should i start drinking energy drink? does not increase concentration?

Studying for the LSAT / another question...

so i am following your advise which is reviewing right and wrong answers... i don;t get what this incorrect answer means:

the proportion of calories from alcohol in a diet is more significant for body fat gain than are the total calories from alcohol.

can someone please transate this into ENglish?

my instructor tells us that whenever we read an argument, we should ask whether or not the argument is good.
Anyways, so i am doing Role/Function questions (which are fabulous!!!!). So my question is: is this argument good or bad?

A severe blow to the head can cause one to lose consciousness; from this some people infer that consciousness is a product of the brain and cannot survive bodily death. But a radio that becomes damaged may suddenly cease to broadcast the program it had been receiving, and we do not conclude from this that the program itself has ceased to exist. Similarly, more substantial evidence would be needed to conclude that consciousness does not survive bodily death.

ok. i think it is a good argument because the conclusion seems safe even though evidence are not too relevant.
I need your opinion.
Thank you!!

Studying for the LSAT / last question for today
« on: July 20, 2007, 06:28:39 PM »
Premise: Some Xs are Ys
Premise: All Ys are Z's
Conclusion: SOme Ws and Z's

this is how i drew

W--> XsomeY-->Z

is this correct
The missing premise is All W's are X?
because the right answer is all Xs are Ws?

Studying for the LSAT / question?
« on: July 20, 2007, 05:00:31 PM »
All Xs are Zs All Ys are Zs

we can still conclude that some Xs are Ys..or am i nuts?  :-\
my instructor said you can't make any inferences.

Studying for the LSAT / and another question
« on: July 19, 2007, 03:52:09 PM »
The only plants in the garden were tulips, but they were tall tulips. So the only plants in the garden were tall plants.

I found this argument to be legit. but the question says it is flawed.
Can someone diagram this for me? and tell me why
"all the primates in the zoo were gorillas. the only gorillas in the zoo were small gorillas. Thus the only prmates in the zoo were small primates." is correct?
