General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why Obama will lose in the fall
« on: May 30, 2008, 09:07:58 AM »
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 Obama's camp.

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.

*&^% I posted the answer to the wrong PT (PT 7, not 8).LSAC does put D as the answer.

Studying for the LSAT / PT 10, Section II question 4
« on: May 26, 2008, 08:17:45 PM »
For the conditions, I wrote:
Jan   (Kathy)
Mike       (Fred/Laura)

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?
