Studying for the LSAT / Re: Did you finishe the Reading comp poll

Hey Queen of Miami, this is for you. The question what would the author agree? That the group think doesn't have beneficial effects on the workings of the group (E) versus there are unique reasons for groupthink (B)

Hmm that jogs my memory somewhat, but my recollection is not conclusive -- I might have put something different. Who knows... However, out of the two you listed I would definitely say (E) is correct. Look at my paraphrase above; groupthink has three characteristics and they are all negative -- nothing good comes out of it. Also, it said the exact causes or reasons for group think are not known.

I couldn't see how the author would say group think has no beneficialeffects so I went with (B). If the exact causes of groupthink are unknown does that rule out that there may be underlying unique causes?

They were good sketches. I think the proctor messed up and gave the five minute warning like a minute and a half too late in one section. That didn't happen twice though. Too bad it was on the experimental section.

I'm tired of guessing which answers I put for what and if they're right. I want my score now!   :'(

I remember that one. It was something about a group making a horrid diplomacy decision because they were always arguing. I answered the same thing.

Agreed.

Me too.

About a page. I had about 10 minutes to spare and made sketches of the proctors on the scratch paper. I doubt anyone will read the essay.

It affected one question. I remember cuz I counted wrong  :'(
It's listed on the Post Mortem Thread. The answer was supposedly one but I can't remember the question.

Umm yea I kind of screwed up and didn't write in cursive. Then at the end I asked the proctor if i could change it and he said it probably wouldn't matter. guess I should call LSAC and confirm. I'd hate for my test not to be scored because I failed to write that statement in cursive.

Really, it doesn't matter. I took the test in December and didn't write in cursive. I don't even know how to do it. I got my score back just like everyone else.

Yeah groupthink definitely had 8 questions--I did this passage first because I didn't want to end up crunched for time.

As for Q 27, if this was the one about what the author and researchers would agree about I remember I boiled it down to two--one answer was that groupthink doesn't have beneficial results, the other was that groupthink's causes can be determined only on a case by case basis (this was definitely one of the answer choices for a question, pretty sure it was for #27). In any case, I chose the no beneficial results one cause the author seemed pretty clear at the beginning of the second paragraph in saying that groupthink is one of the big disadvantages/problems with cohesive groups.

I remember those 2 answer choices too. I chose the other one though about case by case basis. I wasn't too sure about my choice.

Does anyone remember what they put for number 6 (first question in fountain game, a list question)?

B. Def. right answer. It had 2 birds per water source.

Are you guys sure none of these questions were experimental? I'm hoping the one with the asteroids and spaceship is. I think it may have been in section 3. (hands, feet, toes and fingers crossed)
