... and then decided to cancel because I absolutely got no sleep the night before and my brain did not function at all...even with 3 shots of expresso...

I filled in the two ovals and signed my name on the back of the answer sheet.  Just to make sure, is this enough to cancel?   Do you think I should also send in the cancellation form by mail/fax?

Studying for the LSAT / prepTest 43 LR-section 2 #4

This will probably be easy for you guys, but I'm dense tonight.. please explain...

4. Sydonie: Parents differ in their beliefs about the rules
to which their children should be subject. So any
disciplinary structure in schools is bound to
create resentment because it will contradict some
parental approaches to raising children.
Stephanie: Your conclusion is incorrect; educational
research shows that when parents list the things
that they most want their children’s schools to
provide, good discipline is always high on the
Stephanie’s argument is most vulnerable to criticism on
the grounds that
(A) it focuses on educational research rather than
educational practice
(B) it addresses a more general issue than that
addressed in Sydonie’s argument
(C) it does not counter Sydonie’s suggestion that
parents have diverse ideas of what constitutes
good discipline
(D) the phrase “high on the list” is not specific
enough to give useful information about what
parents desire from a school
(E) it fails to discuss educators’ attitudes toward
discipline in schools

I have been screwing up in the LG sections for the past 3 tests!!  This last one I got only one out of four.  Usually I can get 3/4.  Am I burnt out?!

Studying for the LSAT / practice scores trend....
« on: September 18, 2004, 04:41:43 PM »
I think I may be peaking out....

LSAT score  = 3.9593 Ln(test number, 1..n) + 154.52

I need to an extra term (such as + 10) in the equation!

...such as Game4 in Dec 2000 (Preptest 33) and Game1 in Dec 2001 (Preptest36).  This is my weakest type of game.  I get baffled and lost in all the logical details and end up confusing myself.

If these games come easily for you, what's your advice?  What other kinds of materials can I use to improve my performance in these games?


I know it varies for different schools.  But is it generally law professors or administrative workers?  The admissions committee for some schools are only staffed by MBA's, HR "experts", and counselors with questionable degrees.  I think it is important to know who your readers are going to be.
