Studying for the LSAT / Logic Games
« on: November 21, 2007, 11:37:13 PM »
Post one thing that has improved your games score.

Skipping "could be true" questions, and coming back to them after I've done the others.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: vulnerable to criticism & formal logic problems - Help pleaseeee

Black eyed peas, please stop posting which answer is correct right next to the question. It complete eliminates any motivation for myself (an others) to actually try and solve the problems.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUCEMENT
**************************

Don't post *right answer* right next to the f-ing right answer. Then no one gets to figure out the right answer and it eliminates the point of posting all the answer choices.

I always skip PR and come back to them, no matter what # they are.

The questions in the middle are definitely more difficult, intermingled with easier ones. Toward the end they usually get easier again. I do #s 1-9 then #s 20- the end first. Then I do the ones in the middle. Usually this leaves me about two minutes per question for the hardest questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Resolve the Paradox

Haha I also just noticed something very interesting. The first percentage given "fifty-eight percent" is spelled out. The second percentage given "55 percent" is in numerical form. This is not a transcription error on my part, this is how it is actually printed in the test book. STOP PLAYING WITH MY MIND LSAC.

Studying for the LSAT / Resolve the Paradox

Tough Resolve the Paradox- Except question.

In the decade from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, large corporations were rocked by mergers, reengineering, and downsizing. These events significantly undermined employees' job security. Surprisingly, however, employees' perception of their own job security hardly changed over that period. Fifty-eight percent of employees surveyed in 1984 and 55 percent surveyed in 1994 stated that their own jobs were very secure.

Each of the following contributes to an explanation of the surprising survey results described above EXCEPT:

A. A large number of people in both surveys work in small companies that were not affected by mergers, reeingineering, and downsizing.

B. Employees who feel secure in their jobs tend to think that the jobs of others are secure.

C. The corporate downsizing that took place during this period had been widely anticipated for several years before the mid-90s.

D. Most of the major downsizing during this period was completed within a year after the first survey.

E. In the mid-1990s, people were generally more optimistic about their lives, even in the face of hardship, than they were a decade before.

As always, I will give TCR once there is a fair amount of discussion. Thanks for your help.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: in LSAT mode once again!

I'm retaking if not for any other reason than I know I can do better than a 163. Regardless of what people say about the test being equated etc..., The -8 = 170 scale of the June test was ridiculous; and it got me.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: method of reasoning here
« on: November 18, 2007, 07:33:03 PM »
Take each statement in a potential answer choice and match it to the stimulus.

For answer choice D: Alicia rejects Concetta's conclusion by saying "Franchot was not a great writer". But she never "presents facts in support of an alternate criterion, in fact, she never selects an alternate criterion at all.

The writers of the LSAT know that the toughest method of reasoning and flaw questions are those where they put one thing that is true "rejects conclusion" and one thing that is false "alternate criterion". Thus, if you find anything in the answer that isn't in the stimulus, it has to be wrong.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: can most be 100? or max 99?
« on: November 18, 2007, 07:24:37 PM »
I understand what you're saying and I think the answer may be in the phrase, "the statements made by artists, including those considered to be great." If the "considered to be great" part is referring to statements, I think we can infer that these statements are valuable political insights. That's the only reason I can imagine that statement would be in there. Either way, most can definitely include 100.
