Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Games "learnable"???
« on: September 30, 2008, 10:13:45 AM »
Work through the bible one more time, along with some more prep tests untimed. 

Then, GRADUALLY increase your speed on game.  Don't just jump right to timed exams.  Start out with however long it takes you untimed, and then gradually increase in 5 minute increments for each game section.

You'll probably just want to hit 3 (or maybe 2) games on the real thing, so you have more time to spend on each game.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Best info in RC bible
« on: September 29, 2008, 01:36:42 AM »
I learned majority of the materials covered in RC Bible from BP.  Personally, when it comes to marking the passage, I think BP does a better job than RC Bible (way too much markings).  On the other hand, RC Bible's analysis of each passages covered is impressive.

The book heavily emphasize their VIEWSTAMP technique, which I think is the most important thing that test takers should be aware of.  I'm currently re-reading chapter 8 as it contains great information.

On the downside, I think they copy-pasted a good portion from LRB.

Hm.  Hope BP sues PS.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Importance of the very most recent preptests?

I believe there's a more recent exam (free) on the LSAC site.  I'd at least hit that.

You should skip/save all long Q's for the end.

That said, diagramming is a good idea while prepping, but ideally, you'll be able to do most in your head by test day. 

4 or 5 IFC's may require diagramming sometimes, though.

You can hardly deem a two party system as "partisan".

Why not?


I don't know why Americans insist on believing that their country is truly democratic.


What do you define as "truly democratic"?  Direct democracy?

Given you guys still had a monarch until recently, I can understand your confusion, though.

I struggle to see why Canadians have the urge to criticize america whenever they are given the chance.  Sadly, it seems that Canadian identity is often solely established by delineating their differences with america. It seems as if america were to vanish, canadians would have little identity of their own. 

(I actually wrote a paper that detailed how New Zealand and Canada both suffer from inferiority complexes. The former to Australia and the latter to the States.)  Overall, its really just sad.

It's the little brother complex.

That said, I like Canadians, given that they're basically just mellow Americans.  But that's the problem -- there's so little difference between the two nations, it messes with their head sometimes.  How would you like someone almost exactly like you, but 10 times larger and wealthier, living next door?

Lol.  Actually, a 163 LSAT is probably enough to get you in to every Canadian law school except UofT.

And given the price of all beer in Canada, only the foolish would opt to have a Blue light.

1. 163 isn't enough.

2. I don't quite understand the crux of the beer comment. Beer here is much more expensive than in the US or Europe. Blue is disgusting, but if you're on a budget domestic/American beer is the way to go.

Maybe he means all beer is expensive, so you may as well drink good stuff.

What Canadian brew do you like?  I'm a fan of the Golden myself.

I'm not really a fan of most Canadian or American beers. But I do like Alexander Keith's.

I'm an alcohol snob, so I normally prefer European brews. Particularily Dutch, Czech and German beer.

I'll try out the Keith's.  Normally, I like the English/Irish beers, like Harps.

Bell's Oberon is a nice american microbrew, if you ever get a chance to try it.

So how's everyone doing?

I feel like I'm coming down with something today.

It may be the weather... at least I'm hoping it isn't viral.

Who knows what sort of third world diseases are floating around Canada.  Is there a good witch doctor or voodoo priest you can see?

There are plenty.

Unfortunately I don't have the advantage of you yanks with televangelists, methodist/baptist churches (and other made up religions) and George Bush to ward off disease.

Along with the highest-quality health-care system in the world.  Fortunately, you guys can cross the border when you need something better then the govt-run crap provided up north.   :)

(At least unless/until the dems socialize ours as well.)
