Studying for the LSAT / Anyone ever tried this for LR?
« on: May 22, 2006, 06:27:28 PM »
someone kind of alluded to this, i'm going to try it tomorrow to see how it goes...

1)really focusing on the first 18 questions, sans long PR
2)doing the last 2-4 questions, which are typically easier
3)focusing on the last 6, still saving PR for last

theoretically, this should give you a decent shot of getting at least 22 right on LR.

any thoughts?

I got a perfect one yesterday on test 36. lsatismylife, i tried your method...it actually worked, even on the science passage, albeit it was a bit straight forward for a science passage. I even had about 2 mins to spare at the end. :)

All the answers seem pretty weak to me, but that's why you have to choose the "best" answer I guess.

There is no best answer. There are four absolutely, 100% incorrect answers, and 1 absolutely, 100% correct answer. :)

Thank you O Wise god of the LSAT

Yeah, that's happened to me sometimes. Usually I narrow it down to two choices then pick the wrong one. When I go ver the test, the answer always jumps out at me. You jut have to maintain focus on those suckers. I make most of my mistakes b/w 18-24. Those are the hardest ones on the section. Also, I think one LR is harder than the other typically.

Section 1, #21

Why is the answer E?

I'm curious, did you choose B?
Yep, I sure did.

That's what I picked the first time, then when I went over the questions, I couldn't understand why I chose that answer. But I took that test 2 months ago. Here's the breakdown:

The discrepancy in the argument is that despite the fact that lack of sleep was determined to be the reason for a person's fatigue, that person was not recommended to obtain additional sleep. So the question is asking for a reason that would explain why a person was not advised to sleep more to obtain sufficient sleep which theoretically should lead to decrease in fatigue.

a) doesn't contribute anything to resolving the discrepancy. The question does not address fatigue or obtaining adequate amount of sleep
b) If the first two hours of sleep do the most to alleviate fatigue then the person's fatigue wouldn't be attributed to lack of sleep
c) it doesn't matter that some people require less sleep. the question is about this specific person
d) if nightmares did contribute to fatigues the amount of sleep wouldn't matter because a person would experience them whether they received 4 or 8 hours of sleep per night
e) this is the correct answer because if the person is already not getting enough sleep, worrying about getting sleep would reduce the number of hours sleeping even more and that would make his/her fatigue even worse.



Ok I see it. All the answers seem pretty weak to me, but that's why you have to choose the "best" answer I guess. Thanks, and thanks for yesterday's explanation too.

remember that old robin harris joke about balck folks in new york? "the thing about new york is, negroes you think are negroes AIN'T negroes in new york!" i always said that line to myself when i first moved to the rotten apple back in the day.

i'm a plain ol' american black dude too, even though my mother's columbian. but i didn't have any exposure to that culture growing up, don't speak spanish and we never ate arroz con pollo.
