Studying for the LSAT / Re: General Questions

The logical equivalence of:

Many = Some = At least one

Most = Half or More

And,

When a stem says "which one of the following logically follows from the statement above," then you're dealing with a 'Must Be True' question.

Also, let me clarify that by 'slow-reading skills,' I am only implying that it takes me a little longer than needed to comprehend the general idea or significance of complex sentences.

Looks like I mistakenly posted this thread twice.  Just ignore the other one.

Studying for the LSAT / Supplemental Reading - Possible RC Help
« on: August 12, 2008, 02:20:12 PM »
Although my untimed RC sections are slowly improving, I'm afraid that once I move onto timed practice, they will inevitably worsen.  Unfortunately, this is due to my slow-reading skills.  I've noticed that the passages that are based on 'Political Correctness' 'Cultural Relativism' are usually what slow me down the most.  I heard that reading certain publications such as The Economist, The New Yorker, and Scientific American will gradually help me develop better reading skills.

Does anyone else have any suggestions? 

Also, my Testmasters instructor suggested that I pick up some 19th Cent. philosophy due to its denseness. Does anyone know what would be a good selection from 19th. Century Philosophy?
