Studying for the LSAT / Review concepts first or charge through tests?
« on: November 27, 2006, 10:23:56 PM »
I'm getting anxious because I have 2 tests that I planned to take this week and I want to take them. However, I need to review concepts and strategy, which will take about a day. Is it best to save the tests until after I've done the review or take the tests and review those tests plus the concepts? Please add your input and reasoning. Happy studying to all!

I can't reliably complete every LR section, although I try to everytime. I'm always within the skipping 0-3 range, and I'm really bothered when I fall short on time, especially because I'm good at PR and those are the ones I skip due to the time crunch. I think generally the first 10 questions are straightforward and there's rarely any tricky answers. Therefore, if I find my prephase and/or am super confident that a certain choice is the correct answer, can I just move on? I have been going through all the answer choices, but I find that if the question is really easy, or I'm positive a certain choice is the correct answer my mind just shuts down with the remaining choices and it's practically wasted time.

Studying for the LSAT / RC: why author includes information question

In dealing with questions that ask why an author has included a particular statement, does the statement need to be understood in relation to the entire paragraph that the statement appeared in?

Studying for the LSAT / Formal logic LR question
« on: November 24, 2006, 10:57:02 PM »
Test 25, Section 4, Question 23.

Only computer scientists understand the architecture of personal computers, and only those who understand the architecture of personal computers appreciate the advances of technology made in the last decade. It follows that only those who appreciate these advances are computer scientists.

Which one of the following most accurately describes a flaw in the reasoning in the argument?

(B) The argument ignores the fact that some computer scientists may not appreciate the advances in technology in the last decade.

(B) is the correct choice, but is the flaw a mistaken reversal? I diagrammed it, and that's what I came up with.

Studying for the LSAT / Meaning of "adjacent" in logic games?
« on: November 23, 2006, 10:31:32 PM »
What does "adjacent" mean in logic games? Does it have one meaning or can it mean multiple things depending on context?

Eg. Any pair of beads adjacent to each other that are the same color as each other must be green.

Here, I think adjacent means directly next to. However, I think it it can also mean across.

Studying for the LSAT / Reviewing notes morning before the test?
« on: November 23, 2006, 02:22:41 PM »
I have notes on each section of the LSAT and I'm wondering if it would be good to review these on the morning of the LSAT? Maybe even during the break?

Studying for the LSAT / Conditional Reasoning same as...

Is conditional reasoning the same thing as formal logic?

Studying for the LSAT / How to get past oddly worded LR answer choices?
« on: November 19, 2006, 06:04:05 PM »
Here's something that happens all too often for me: I read the LR stimulus, I get it, I know what answer I'm looking for, but the answers are written in confusing, abstract language. For example, I read a flaw stimulus and I can see what the flaw is, but the correct choice does not describe it in a way that I can quickly discern. Therefore, I blow past it and choose a choice that sounds better, but is wrong. 

What can I do?

Studying for the LSAT / Grouping logic games question
« on: November 18, 2006, 02:24:10 PM »
Are grouping games also known as "who's in, and who's out?" Or at least, can I think of it that way?
