this is my main LR weakness, please help!!  I'm good at identifying what the method of reasoning in the stimulus is, and i write it down as a reference point, but once i start to look at the answer choices i get so thrown off by the change in subject matter, information overload or jumbled order of premises/conclusion. any advice for how to keep a straight head in doing these?

also, are the structures/# components of the premises and/or conclusion always parallel?  for instance if you have (A or B --> C) as a premise in the original stimulus, is it wrong to automatically eliminate an answer choice with a premise (A or B or C --> D) or am i supposed to give it a chance in terms of seeing whether the logic of it actually works in a similar way?

Section 4, #15: Chose C, don't know why D is better...

Any or all would be great if anyone could help out. Thanks!!

Studying for the LSAT / finished all TM materials... any suggestions?
« on: October 06, 2007, 02:59:05 PM »
I've finally finished all the practice tests/diagnostics/homework/supplementary/etc. material that Testmasters gave me, which (assuming they aren't duping me) means I've done every LSAT question available to date with the exception of the last two administered LSATs.  where do i go from here?  i know i have time to do all the formal preptests before December, but i've basically literally seen and done all the questions, whether in test format or not...  anyone recommend how i should set up the order in which i go about taking (or i guess sort of re-taking) these tests? any help would be much appreciated.

Law School Applications / LORs/Any forms sent automatically by LSDAS?
« on: October 02, 2007, 07:03:24 PM »
I'm not sure yet if I want to apply this cycle or next cycle (I'm taking LSATs in December), but am definitely asking my profs for recommendations so I have it either way.  I'm unclear on two things:  in case I decide to postpone a cycle, will LSDAS keep these files on hold?   and secondly, LSDAS doesn't send the recommendations uploaded in my file automatically until I pay for each law report right?  or is it automatic... please let me know if you have a clue, thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / List Ethnicity in LSAT Registration?
« on: October 01, 2007, 12:46:40 PM »
I just wanted to make sure that the conventional thing is to indeed, select what your ethnicity is regardless of whether you're URM or not when you register for the LSAT and are filling out the applications.  I wasn't sure because i keep coming across the option of NOT including my ethnicity, but i don't know if that's looked at weirdly if i were to choose not to do it?  i'm asian, so i really don't care whether they know or not, but i don't know if it's something that's pretty much expected like checking off the waiver agreement on your recommendations.

If I'm fairly confident I can break 170 but need the time till December to do so, am I better off waiting to submit my application then, or is that risky in terms of where my application will fall in the rolling admissions process?  Is it better for me to rush my LSAT and take it in October and get my app in early, but at the risk of not breakin 170?  I'm looking at T14 schools, reaching for HYS.

Law School Applications / LR question: Type 3
« on: July 31, 2007, 04:23:37 PM »
Recently discovered prehistoric rock paintings on small islands off thenorthern coast of Norway have archaeologists puzzled. THe predominant theory about northern cave paintings was that they were largely a description of the current diets of the painters. This theory cannot be right, because the painters must have needed to eat the sea animals populating the waters north of Norway if they were to make the long journey to and from the islands, and there are no paintings that unambiguously depict such creatures.

Each of the following, if true, weakens the argument against the predominant theory about northern cave paintings EXCEPT:

correct answer: the cave paintings that were discovered on the islands depicted many land animals.

Answer I chose: once on these islands, the cave painters hunted and ate land animals.

Is my answer wrong primarily because it is targeted at what happened in the past (irrelevant) rather than addressing the content of the theory itself?  I'm a little confused, please help if you can.

Does anyone who has taken/is taking TM recommend also getting the powerscore LR and logic games bibles??? i don't find the explanations in the TM workbooks sufficient for helping me understand, and am wondering if it would be worth investing (or just confuse me more?) if i order the bibles.
