Studying for the LSAT / Shakespeare question
« on: October 11, 2010, 02:45:19 PM »
Anyone feel strongly about their answer to the Shakespeare question from the latest test?

Studying for the LSAT / PT 52 - Sec 4, #10 - RC

Why is C the answer?  Choice B looks good to me because the second passage DOES appear to be making evaluative claims.

Studying for the LSAT / PT 60 - Section 1, #13 - LR
« on: September 27, 2010, 01:19:36 PM »
Exactly how does C weaken the argument?  As I understand it the argument is that many economists overestimate the degree to which people are motivated by money when making job choices.  The premise is that in many surveys most people do NOT name high salary as the most desirable feature of a job. 

Is C implying that the reason jobs with the same salary vary in other financial benefits is because employers have to entice people to take them some how?  Or is it saying that while salary may not be the most desirable feature named in most surveys, some other financial benefit may be?

In any event, it seems like an answer that just barely weakens the argument.

Studying for the LSAT / Are mechanical erasers allowed?

I know mechanical pencils are prohibited, but what about mechanical erasers?  I prefer them over block erasers because they're more precise.

Studying for the LSAT / PT 55 Section 4, Last game

Is the following diagram correct for the last rule of the game?

Jf <----> Gs

If, and only if, Jasmine is on board when the van reaches Fundy, Greg is still on board when the van reaches Simcoe.

Studying for the LSAT / Can you spot the experimental section?
« on: August 30, 2010, 07:31:01 PM »
Does LSAC make the experimental section stand out at all by making the section particularly difficult or exotic?  Or, conversely, do they make it conspicuous by making the questions rather easy and forgiving?  When you took the test, did you walk away knowing which section was the unscored section?

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 60?
« on: August 26, 2010, 04:16:55 PM »
Is LSAC shipping PT 60 yet?  Anyone have it yet?  I saw it on Amazon today for the first time, but it's not in stock.

Studying for the LSAT / PrepTest 44 - October 2004, Sec 2, #14
« on: July 06, 2010, 07:19:36 PM »
Do I have this diagrammed correctly?

Economy doing badly --> real estate slump & car sales low

no real estate slump or car sales not low ---> economy not doing badly

Studying for the LSAT / Add a section to PT's???
« on: May 23, 2010, 10:21:14 AM »
Since the real LSAT contains five sections (the four legitimate and one experimental) but the PrepTests contain only the four scored sections, would it be wise to add a random section from a different PrepTest when practicing to get used to taking five sections in one sitting?  Anybody try this?

Studying for the LSAT / Test center location
« on: March 14, 2010, 07:11:56 AM »
I went to register for the June LSAT yesterday (about 3 months away) and to my surprise, every test center near my house was unavailable; the closest one with availability is about an hour away.  I'm thinking about postponing it until October so I can take it at a closer center (about 20 minutes from my house).  I'm graduating in May and planning to take two years off before going to law school, so there isn't much urgency.  I just figure that I'll be more comfortable taking the test at a closer center; if I take it in June, I'll probably have to leave my house at 11:10 and won't get home until 4:30, I'll be hungry and probably won't have my sharpest focus?  Any advice on this?  Is it even much of an issue?
