This will be the last thing I post until Sunday morning.
I am really happy to read your post, as I remember you from the earlier pre-September threads. I haven't taken a full preptest ever since September either and from browsing the board every day since November I figured I was the only one.
Best of luck to you and any other lurkers who didn't do any preptests or reread the LRB/LGB!!!
Studying for the LSAT / Re: @@@PLEASE post ANY LAST MINUTE LSAT advice and ADVICE about that advice HERE« on: November 29, 2006, 12:59:14 AM »
you're looking for meta-advice? thats wicked.
I'm not sure if it's because my brain is fried from reviewing LR all night, but I've been thinking about this for the past few minutes. If LSATs and other standardized tests vary in terms of difficulty from test to test, shouldn't they report scores by the percentile rather than absolute scores? One person's 165 on an easy test might, theoretically, be drastically different from another's 165 on a relatively difficult test.
In addition, if I recall correctly, LSAC determines the scale BEFORE scores are released, so they don't curve it on the actual results -- rather, they curve it beforehand without knowing how test-takers actually did on the exam. Imagine if LSAC drastically underestimated the difficulty of the most recent September test.
um, A is correct. Verified it by looking at the actual prep test.
lol i agree man. its cool.
It's Dec 05, section 1, #6. I didn't have this information on the paper copy I have, because I got the test from laws4u.net or whatever. I found out what test it was from using the search function here. I ended up with this:
You know what, the post-mortem at that link suggests that A is the right answer. I also thought I got the next question (about teachers and calculators) wrong, and the PM suggests that I got the right answer again.
The answer key I got is probably screwed up. I suppose this is what I get for downloading free lsats.
If you take a look again, do you still think A is wrong?
The public interest comprises many interests and the broadcast media must serve all of them. Perhaps most television viewers would prefer an action show to an opera. But a constant stream of action shows on all channels is not in the public interest. Thus, _____
Which one of the following most logically completes the argument?
(A) broadcasters' obligations are not satisfied if they look only to popularity to decide their programming schedules
(B) television networks should broadcast more artistic and cultural shows and fewer action shows
(E) broadcast media could be rightly accused of neglecting the public interest only if all channels carried mostly action shows
I would have picked (E) if the conditional was backwards -- "IF all channels carried mostly action shows, broadcast media could be rightly accused of neglecting the public interest." I didn't like any of the other ACs, but I picked A. This of course means B was TCR.
So why is this? I was thrown off by the word "MORE." There's nothing in the stimulus to compare it to -- more than what? If it were the case that there were in fact too many action shows, then I would pick B, but the stim merely says "perhaps most viewers would prefer an action show to an opera."
