Didn't Jeffort or someone write that Julie Fern helps write the test?

I'm in, my score is steadily going up, and like LSAT Hell, I plan on getting a better score test day, not going down.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why Obama will lose in the fall
« on: May 31, 2008, 08:02:09 PM »
In my area, city dems voted for Obama, and all the suburbs voted Hilary. Suburbanítes are overwhelmingly white. If Obama loses the election, it might be because those suburbanites are not willing to get on board where poor people already are...in Obama's camp.

what does this have to do with the price of tea in china?  the question is whether or not asian/latino racism is a far bigger issue than white racism.  i think iowa demonstrates that the answer is probably yes.  the prison population offers an interesting, albeit dystopian, snapshot of the baser side of race politics in america.  presently the most virulent anti-black sentiment comes out of the latino community. a very close second is the asian community.  this should be no mystery to anyone who has traveled to asis.  i include here the indian subcontinent, china, indonesia, japan, and korea.  these people don't like black people as a rule. racism there is far more entrenched than it is in whites in the u.s., this is particularly evident in younger white voters.  this however is not true of younger latino voters, who are even more racist in their outlook than their parents.

and yet these groups are part of the democratic base.  this is the issue.  no one wants to talk about it because of white guilt.  it is a complete sham what has occurred in this country, once a bastion of open discourse.  this is why Obama stands to lose an election that democrats should absolutely win by enormous margins.

If the question is whether or not "asian/latino racism is a far bigger issue than white racism" it helps to take a look at the white racism you seem to brush off as incidental. I compared a city made up primarily of Blacks and Latinos--who voted for Obama-- to its surrounding suburbs predominately filled with whites--who voted for Hilary. Granted, some whites live in the city too, so it's not a clear demarcation between "how each Dem will vote based on his race", but then, nothing but racist ideology will manage to pinpoint that...

LSAT All Star,
OK, so I got the analysis right. But it takes 20 minutes because I am not used to following my own train of thinking. I usually get to conclusions and they are sound, but I don't know how I got there. This intuitive approach doesn't work with puzzles.

BTW, I read your website, and wish I'd come across it a month ago.

Studying for the LSAT / PT 10, Section II question 4
« on: May 26, 2008, 10:17:45 PM »
For the conditions, I wrote:
Ida         
Glen       
Jan   (Kathy)
Mike       (Fred/Laura)
Hilary
Nick

I did not know how to diagram question 4. Do I use poe?
i.e. level 1   level 2    level 3
     1,2,3,    1,2,3      1,2,3  , um, for each choice?

a. So, level 2 fred, kathy,
then level one could still have ida, glen, jan and level two could be laura or mike so that's not it...

b. Or, level 2 fred and mike
then level one could have ida glen jan or kathy so that's not it.

c. Or level two has Hilary and Jan
So level one must be Ida Glen and Kathy and Level Two also contains Mike and Nick Fred and Laura are left so they must be in level three...


OK, so I get c, it's apparently the right answer but this just took me twenty minutes. And I don't trust my analysis. Why does it have to be Mike in two?  :-\
Help Jeffort, LSatHell, LSAT Hero, Earl Cat, et al....

parallel reasoning questions get me too. I want to diagram them, but I don't read diagrams very quickly, so it eats up the time. Hope you get some good advice...

So, I am doing LSAT preptests 7-18 this week...

In test 7, section one, I got numbers 12, 16, and 19 wrong. They all ask a variation of "If all of the above is true, which of these answers is also true?

Does anyone have a process by which they answer these types of questions?
