I got this one right by choosing A since it seemed like it could not possibly be wrong, but I'm not exactly sure why C and D are incorrect. Any ideas?

For 16, I put D but the answer is A; the last part of A is deceiving to me...it says that, "being above average in both speed and endurance is not necessary," but I found that to be too strong of a statement. It might not be necessary to win long-distance races, but the way the answer is worded makes it sound like it is not necessary at all.
For 17, I put C but the answer is somehow D. How does the fact that the company employs 8 accountants vs 2 actuaries weaken that argument?
With classes in full swing, I have a lot less time to study for the LSAT now than I did during the summer. However, I notice that I seem to be improving much faster now with more time off between study sessions; everything just makes more sense. Does anyone else notice they do better when they take a break from studying? Is less really more?
Is there any particular work experience that would help me get into a top 10 school? I currently work in the finance department of a marquee NFL team (two years out of school). Many higher ups in pro sports have a JD. I've been thinking for years about getting a JD, maybe an MBA too. Now I have another motive. I figure given the fact schools like to recruit a well-rounded class from a diverse background, and since pro sports is a really popular/unique industry that lots of people want to work in, it might make my application more attractive.
Has anyone seen the new book PowerScore is putting out, the "Logic Games Bible Workbook"? It's coming out on August 28. Apparently it will have 30 actual LSAT games from tests between 2002-2006, all worked out with diagrams and explanations. This is in contracts to the Logic Games Set-ups Guide. The main criticism I've heard of the Set-ups Guide is that people want more than just a diagram. This new workbook sounds like the answer. Anyone interested? Any thoughts?
Good idea? Anyone done it? What kind of opportunities are availble to a JD/MBA grad that aren't available to a grad with just one of the degrees? Note: I want to work in corporate law and ideally go in-house and become a general counsel. Would the MBA help with that?
