Studying for the LSAT / Re: GMAT after LSAT, anyone here done that?
« on: December 07, 2007, 09:35:44 AM »
I wouldn't normally post this on LSD but due to the nature of this thread it seems fitting.

What are the powerscore bibles of the GMAT prep world? I need to take the GMAT and I want to buy the best prep materials possible. If anyone could provide a list of the best study books, I would appreciate it.

I love the unsupported assertion in the last posters post that because the GMAT is graded on a curve there's no difference in "difficulty". What does the curve have to do with anything? Are the questions more difficult or are they not?

I'll read it if you'd like.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Assumption question

C---> not T

P---> T

Conclusion:

P---> not H

   or

H---> not P

We need a premise that makes this conclusion follow. If we combine our other terms we get:

C--->not T--->not P

or

P--->T--->not C

Answer choice B says H--->C, which yields:

H--->C--->not T--->not P

simplified: H--->Not P

Thus B allows the argument to be properly drawn.

MB ---> D

D ---> I

Therefore, MB ---> I; S ---> Not MB

S--->not MB is unsupported, so we need a premise that supports it.

Answer choice D says "the spirit is perfect" which is the same as saying the spirit is not imperfect.

S--->not I

If we take the contrapositive of MB ---> I, we get not I---> not MB. If we combine this with D we get:

S--->not I--->not MB

Which yields S--->not MB, which is the unsupported part of the conclusion.

If you're already reading prosser and keaton, you only need around 22.5 hours.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: my best LR score yet!!!!

I missed a record high 5 on the second section of September '07 and as I went over them, they were all really easy. Something about that last section is mind numbing.

Ahhh...thanks. I took it to mean that two reviewers had to review more than one play together (which could only be M and O). So O would always be greater than K. Now I get it. Thanks Jeffort.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Tough Point At Issue Question

Sorry for being a pest, but if the LSAT is all about precise wording, how can unforseen  technologies equate to expected technologies, as Luis says?

Is assuming that unforseen consequences does not equal expected consequences assuming too much? And if so, why?
