I am going to be in the cycle this fall 09 and had a question about LoRs.
I have two professors in mind. 1 from my business law class, and another from my theoretical sociology/sociology of law professor. The question that's been bothering me is my soc of law professor is quite well-known in the area of sociology and law schools for his value-free perspective on law. According to him and few sources, a lot of law professors don't find him and his perspective on law favorable. Would getting a recommendation from him (because of this present bias) hurt my chances at all?
My issue with LR has been dying down. And with LG its been good. But for some reason I can't seem to escape from getting 8-9 wrong on the RC. Is there anyway to improve? People just keep telling me practice practice practice but I've done quite a few of the passages and keep getting wrecked by it.
i just watch TV shows on the internet as my breaks or even movies sometimes. (i.e. south park, daily show, colbert report) those shows are always 21 to 30 mins long and are not in continuous episodes (meaning diff story every time) its easy to just stop after one episode and get back to work.
Or a jog, eat, cig breaks work too.
#17: the question stem is a NOT weaken. So we are looking for the answer choice that does not weaken. I am going to skip over (C) because you state that you know why that answer choice is correct. Answer choice (D) weakens (has a result of decreasing the risk) because it is weakening the aspect of having made corrections for age and smoking habits. While the stimulus states that the study was corrected for age and smoking habits, choice (D) weakens by stating that heavy smokers tend to consume a lot of coffee. In short, (D) weakens by attacking the correction made by the study about smoking habits. The study results from the stimulus is basically after the correction of smoking habits, but choice (D) attacks it by saying the people who drink this much coffee tends to be heavy smokers.
#20: the main focal point of the stimulus is that introduction of products should have "good understanding". The stimulus concludes by saying because of newly marketed AH are far from clear, there should be a reduction in the pace of new drugs that are being now tested. But in the first sentence of the stimulus, it states that "introduction of a new drug should be contingent upon good understanding of the product". (A) is correct because if the understanding of the new AH is better than the new drugs being tested; it is basically saying the new drugs being tested are even far from being understood, since the AH's understanding is currently far from clear.
Hope this helps.
My diagnostic on the LR last May was like 15 wrong each section timed. So basically worse than your situation. Recently, I've been getting like 4-5 wrong each section timed. Currently, taking a Testmasters course to try to get it to 100%. It just takes alot of ALOT ALOT of work. I got to a point where I was focusing on LR so much that my RC and LG (which I was originally good at) scores were going down. Fortunately, now I've gotten back on track for the LG and RC. I just need to "hone" up till the June 09 exam.
