Reading Comp has always been one of my strenghts and is my strongest section on LSAT practice tests though I think I owe a lot of that to being a fast reader. I got all kinds of advice on how to "tackle" the RC section all of them were different than the way I was doing it. Everything from read the questions first to answer as you go along. None of that sh$t worked. I got more wrong when I read the question first because I was focused on answering the questions rather than the passage as a whole not to mention you can only remember 3-4 questions at the most and waste time reading the questions twice once at the beginning and once after. I decided to do what I have always done which is R E A D the passage not just skim  to get the main idea like I did in undergrad but read every single word. Pay attention to the differences between paragraphs. Is the 1st an introduction an analogy, example, etc.  If you do that then those organization and how does passage proceed etc. questions won't take as long because the answer will jump out and you will have more time to focus on the questions that ask for specific details. Don't panic on really hard passages because I've found that there is usually one really hard one that slows you down followed by  easier passages where you can make up time. Hope this helps 

i read your logic but i dont know what A was my memory barely lets me remember the question let alone which letter represented the correct answer. I chose the answer that had the "most beautiful art is the best or something like that" 

all I know is anyone who can remember any of these questions with the type of accuracy that you all have should not sweat the LSAT. I can only remember one or two questions that gave me trouble and I have to go with the minority on this one "most beautiful" was definitly in there its why i chose the most beatiful answer choice. I'd picked the beautiful equals best but changed it after I reread and noticed the emphasis on "most" Regardless of one question Im sure you will all do very well.

thanks for the advice so far but I'm more interested in knowing the range of subjects people wrote about. Paritcularly those who are not right out of college. I plan on including an addendum discussing my socioeconomic roots but I am trying to gauge if anyone was succesful writing about something other than overcoming disadvantage, no offense to anyone but keeping it real I am pretty far removed from that time in my life right now.

Hello everyone. I'm hoping you all will give me some advice. I am an older student looking to apply for Fall 07. I would like to know what people wrote about in there personal statements and do they think it made a difference. I've been adivsed to talk about socioeconomic factors etc. problem is I'm 33 and though I did have socioeconomic factors growing up I have a very good paying job now, I did a stint in the military, work as a government contractor and have all kinds of life and work experience since that time. I'm afraid if I don't tell the typical growing up in the hood story then my statement won't cut the mustard. In additon seems kind of lame to write about something that affected me as a teen ager now that I am grown. Any advice by those who have been accepted could give would be greatly appreciated.

sorry wrong thread...

Well, since we both had experimental sections we can cross-check each others'--do you recognize any of these:

an "assumes" question where the answer was that politicians will due what they promise to do during the campaign.

universities using two types of computer programs

ants carrying food/wastes to other ants

whether it is people who make societal groups evil or societal groups can be evil on their own.

motivational posters in the workplace

women's lower incidence of heart disease

assigning values and ethics (human qualities) to countries

exercising back muscles on both sides
I remeber all of these...was this the experimental section?

Do you recognize this one: advertisements using visuals to tie positive feelings to their products?

I guess we both had experimental LR, but different experimental questions.
I remember that question i was running out of time and picked the answere that went something like advertiser should use products that can be displayed visually to like with blah blah blah

I'm new to this site and I intially posted this question by mistake in the master LG section. Does anyone remember a question about needing so much land to feed cattle and said cattle only providing a small percentage of the protein in a human diet therefore it was immoral to continue to eat meat or something like that...does anyone remember the answer...or was this a question in the exp. section it has been bugging me every since the test.

Hi, Im new here. I'm not sure if it's posted but does anyone remeber the LR questions about animals and protein it went something like it takes too much land to grow grain for animals to eat and animals only give people 1 g or protein. The question asked whAT would be the most likely response to the moral arugument that we should not eat meat...does anyone know what the correct answere was? My eyes were glazing over at that point and i picked i think D which said an all grain diet wouldn't be sufficient for humans...
