Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT is turning me into a monster
« on: July 29, 2007, 10:13:02 PM »
In addition to becoming annoying, i am becoming a biatch as well.
My guyfriend and i will be taking Sept. LSAT and he does not get basic concepts. I try to explain and feel bad for him. On the other hand, i tell myself that i need more people like him to have a lenient scale.
The worst part is that  I am a nice person by nature...well not any more


The good thing is that you're there to help him.  Look at it that way.  (One person won't hurt your scale, of course.  And no one who takes it when you do will affect the scale whatsoever.)

thanks for making me feel better  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: energy drink?
« on: July 29, 2007, 10:05:25 PM »
the worst part of my homework time is when i when i forget certain important words in the stimulus and choose the wrong answer or sit for a long time picking an answer and when glancing at the stimulus see that remembering a certain word would have made me pick a correct answer earlier.

Guys, should i start drinking energy drink? does not increase concentration?

Simple formula to correct this.  It doesn't work with all problems but it is effective to combat a common long standing LR construction strategy.

When you get it down to two and are not sure, re-read the first sentence or couple of lines and the last sentence and couple of lines from the stimulus. 
Burying important details at the top of arguments (especially long ones) is very common with LR.  This strategy applies mainly to the LR questions in the 'death zone' that is roughly #15 to #21.

Quickly refresh your memory about the details at the top and the bottom and then debate the two contender answer choices you have left.  You can do the re-read in seconds and it can cut down the time debating the two remaining answers considerably. 

Structuring it so that the important pieces that you need to put together to make sense of the argument are at the top and the bottom and separated by garbage or distracter premises is also common. 

The text of the arguments is not presented in the best order to make it easy to see the connections and relationships.  Sometimes re-reading things in an order different from the way they are presented makes things click quickly. 

(notice that a lot of the explanations people post here are simple re-arrangements of the premises and conclusion that is presented)


Jeffort, i hope you and not your GF dumped you  :). THANKS man!

please PM me for my email? thanks

Common Dude.  WTF  ???

Posting a thread asking strangers in a public forum to pirate intellectual property for you?  Really?? 

If you are going to take that path at least try to make some friends and use PM's and email.  (I don't condone piracy of intellectual property JSIA)

You could simply lay out a credit card and order the book and have it by Tuesday if you want.

LOLLLLLLLLL

It  deceases focus for me . It makes you want to go out and take a jog. Or have fun with you friends

Its hard to sit down and do LSAT  problems when you have a lot of energy.


I have noticed every time i drink some type of thing for energy i end up just driving around, working out or  doing something useless. Its hard to sit down.

ok...it's just frustrates me so much that i miss words!! I feel that's my biggest problem.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: anyone else experiencing the same?

I have no social life right now and even when i communicate with my friends, i talk about the LSAT which annoys them. Should i chill out a bit? I feel like my social life is at stake

Studying for the LSAT properly <--/--> having a life

Being a law student <--/--> having a life

Being a lawyer <--/--> having a life

Annoying your friends by logically picking apart and arguing about everything they say --->  priceless

HTH


That is great!!!!

I'm annoying everyone, too.  I just told my husband the other night during a fight that his argument didn't logically follow.  He had murder in his eyes for a few minutes there...hehehe

lol

The ultimate cherry on top in that type of situation is to say something like 'why don't you just think logically instead of getting all emotional'

Works everytime, no matter whether a guy is saying it to the girl or vice versa. Watch out, fireworks time!
Just make sure all the kitchen knives and any other weapons you might have laying around are hidden. 


ughhh i hate when people say that cause that makes me soooo angry

so i am following your advise which is reviewing right and wrong answers... i don;t get what this incorrect answer means:

the proportion of calories from alcohol in a diet is more significant for body fat gain than are the total calories from alcohol.

can someone please transate this into ENglish?

It looks like English to me and it means exactly what it says.

For example, if you consume 1000 calories per day, and 10% of the calories is from alcohol, then the answer is saying that 10% of the calories from your diet contributes more to fat gain than the 100 calories from alcohol. Do you see how that doesn't make any sense?


oh thank you!! i thought i was going nuts when i thought like that when i saw the answer choice
