Studying for the LSAT / Re: method of reasoning here

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.

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.

I can't tell you when I last saw it, but I can tell you this: I went to the law school forum in Los Angeles and one of the LSAT writers said that there will no longer be multiple question stimuli. I was somewhat surprised that he came out and said that, so take it for what it's worth.

The last one is E. The author gives no reason why the recent report is more reliable than the older report, so he doesn't have the basis to claim that the older report should be discarded.

I don't recall anyone asking about writing the wrong schools name on one's personal statement, Shi.

I got the same score as you did on the June test and was scoring about the same on my PT's. I don't think December will be as bad, though, -8 for a 170 is unprecedented to say the least.

Kansas and Journey. These two music groups will help you achieve epic levels of focus.

Advances in photocopying technology allow criminals with no printing expertise to counterfeit paper currency. One standard anti counterfeiting  technique, micro printing, prints paper currency with tiny designs that cannot be photocopied distinctly. Although counterfeits of micro printed currency can be detected easily by experts, such counterfeits often circulate widely before being detected. An alternative , though more costly, printing technique would print currency with a special ink. Currency printed with the ink would change color depending on how ordinary light strikes it, whereas photocopied counterfeits of such currency would not. Because this technique would allow anyone to detect photocopied counterfeit currency easily, it should be adopted instead of micro printing, despite the expense.

Which one of the following, if true, provides the most support for the recommendation made by the argument?

A. When an anti counterfeiting technique depends on the detection of counterfeits by experts, the cost of inspection by experts adds significantly to the cost to society of that technique.

B. For any anti counterfeiting technique to be effective, the existence of anti counterfeiting techniques should be widely broadcast, but the method by which counterfeits are detected should be kept secret.

C. The process of micro printing paper currency involves fewer steps than does the printing of paper currency with the special ink.

D. Before photocopying technology existed, most counterfeits of paper currency were accomplished by master engravers.

E. Many criminals do not have access to the advanced photocopiers that are needed to produce counterfeits of micro printed paper currency that cashiers will accept as real.

As always, I will post the correct answer once I get a few responses.

Sorry. You're right. I was just being an a-hole.

What I meant to say is: You shouldn't go to the same law school as me.

HDUBS can you please include ALL answer choices. I don't mind helping you, but I would like to learn something myself as well. Also, don't tell us which is the CR right with the answer choices. If you do this people are bound to justify an answer choice on the basis of the fact that it is right and give you incomplete answers.
