Studying for the LSAT / Re: A sudden decrease in RC & LG on PT #54

It was -10 (which is probably the most common in recent administrations)

Thanks. It was helpful.

ah yes, I did feel that way about PT 54. Unfortunately, I was sitting that administration. Actually RC was fairly straightforward except for the group think passage, from my perspective. I have redone the groupthink since, and I find that the concept itself is not difficult, but the questions it asks are quite nuanced, similar to some of the older RC sections.

Yeah, the group think one killed me, too. I think the passage was not really impossible to understand.. I retook the RC section and didn't miss a question in the gruopthink one.. I guess it was especially crucial to exactly understand the concept of cohesiveness and groupthink.. Once you throughly understand the concepts, I guess it's not too difficult.. Rather, I found the drilling mud one very difficult. The questions were pretty straightforward, but you had to remember or find very specific, detailed information from the passage. It took me a long time to locate those information and compare them with the answer choices.

Studying for the LSAT / A sudden decrease in RC & LG on PT #54
« on: September 15, 2008, 05:25:57 AM »
I've been prepping for the Oct test for a couple months now. I've been scoring 170ish on the recent few PTs, then two days ago I took the most recent PT, #54 - which is June, 08. I don't have the scoring scale for that, but my raw scores are just horrible. -8 for RC, -7 for LG. LRs were not too bad: -5 and -2. I took the RC section again, then scored -7 the second time. I even had a hard time finishing the section in time. LG seemed significantly harder than any other "modern" PTs. Did anybody feel the same way about PT #54? What's the scoring scale like? I think it must be something like -12 for 170.

I know this is probably a dumb question, but I'm kinda desperate to get a copy of the Powerscore RCB. I'm currently in Korea, so the int'l shipping is gonna take too long. Does anybody know a way I can get an access to the RCB material? I think the most feasible way would be to get an electronic version of the book, but I don't even know if it comes out in the electronic version. RC is by far the biggest problem for me, so I desperately need it. I know the probable answer would be "there's no way," but I would still take risk to sound dumb and ask.

Studying for the LSAT / Retaking PTs second time
« on: August 22, 2008, 02:10:31 AM »
I've exhausted pretty much all of PTs available out there.. I'm saving only a few of them for the final checkup..
I don't have a problem retaking PTs second time cause I took lots of them almost a year ago and I absolutely don't remember the answers though some parts of passages and stimuli look familiar.

I've been constantly scoring 170+ on those PTs that I retook second time.. My question is.. Can I reliably believe that I've become one of those monster 170ers? I feel my test taking skill has definitely improved cause I used to score 165ish last year on the retaken PTs. Can anybody tell me about this?

Studying for the LSAT / PT #44 Sec.1(RC) Q.20
« on: August 10, 2008, 06:35:13 AM »
This is the nerve cells/NGF/chick embryos passage.

The correct answer is (D). The only clue I could find from the passage related to what's stated in (D), is line (40). It says NGF is the first of "many" cell-growth factors. Isn't this a little too brief to justify the choice (D)? Is there any other information from the passage that makes (D) true?

I put (E), which basically states that there're other neurotrophic factors that create the same effects as in Levi-Montalcini's chick embryos experiment. I think this could also be confirmed by line (40), right?

I hope somebody could tell me why (D) is correct and (E) is wrong.

Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / PT#44 Sec.1(RC) Q.25
« on: August 10, 2008, 03:38:19 AM »
This is the Modern Movement/architecture problem.


I put (B) for lack of a better choice. The cr answer choice is (D). But, doesn't "conviniently" describe the attitude of the proponents? not the author? The question is asking which term reveals the attitude of the author towards the proponents. Can somebody explain how "conviniently" reveals the attitude of the "author"?

Thanks in advance.

Great x3!

This should be a classic article on retaking!
