Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC - Groupthink Passage

It was an answer choice. That's the one I picked. The question asked:
Which of the following would the author and researchers agree on?

One question asked what Hubbles' Law stated:  it was that the rate of expansion was inversely porportional to the distance between the planet and observer?  it was directly in the passage

The constant was an inverse relation, the Law was directly proportional.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: June vs. October

Seriously, that's when most of the brainiacks take the LSAT. In my own opinion, those tests are harder. Do October if you're not comfy with June. Howeveryou may run the risk of not studying over the summer or burning out. Seriously, it's the summer. Sun, fun and beaches.

. possibility of groupthink
 Ongoing Research - dearth of existing info r/g groupthink
  -> consensus over necessity of obtaining additional info
 

[/quote]

The last statement lead me to a different answer for the question related to what both the author and researchers would agree on. It would be about acquiring more knowledge about the causes of groupthink.

Thanks for the info. However be careful not to introduce this info into the info learned from the passage. It can prove disasterous

I did group think second (and it totally screwed up my timing for cakewalk & hubble!): the passage was not difficult but did contain some seemingly contradictory information, specifically with respect to cohesion/noncohesion and group think... but here's what i'm confident about:

First: the author pointed out the advantages of cohesion (NOT GROUPTHINK!)

Secondly: Psychological pressures - noncohesive groups, as described, potentially experience pressure inasmuch as people are reluctant to speak out to people they are not close/comfortable/cohesive to

What was the author's definition of groupthink? I thought it said something about cohesive thinking and some members suppressing opinions?
Also I agree that the passage something along "...inasmuch as people are reluctant to speak out to people they are not close/comfortable/cohesive". What I'm disagreeing on is it being properly defined as psychological pressure. Unless specific evidence is given, we cannot conclude as such. Another quote put the answer as " ... most people in noncohesive groups conform due to external force..." a more general term that would be harder to contradict vs "psychological".

the test is undisclosed so as far as you're concerned, you're right.  :P

I remember putting E. 

I believe I'm wrong though. I don't remember the other answer choices. The Jane question (#38?) should say that she didn't steal (the formula) because she is still working.

Okay here's one:

WHich one of the following would the author most agree with?

People who are in noncohesive groups are subject to outside pressure?  I think this is right because the first paragraph stated that most people in noncohesive groups conform due to external force. 

anyone remember?

I think I remember such a line in the passage. I think they used the military as an example? Anywheezy, the answer does not contain psychological pressure.

Anybody.  I think I put B but I kind of guessed.

I think it was Sparows and Robbins on one
Mockingbirds and Sparrows on the other
and Thrushers and Warblers on the last.

B it was. Looked over it and all the others violated a rule of somekind. I remember A was wrong cuz it had sparrow at 3 water source.
