Studying for the LSAT / Re: Jealousy or ignorance?
« on: August 03, 2007, 06:09:47 PM »
oh yeah and the reason why i put jealousy is because sometimes i feel that my instructor gets upset when i (or someone else) ask tricky questions or provide an alternate explanation :P... I conclude that he is jealous to give out tips since he is applying with us to LAw school next year and thinks of us as competition. Maybe i am just imagining things

Studying for the LSAT / Jealousy or ignorance?

I am taking TM and people said lots of great things about the prepcourse. Yet, my instructor does not even provide succinct explanations for core LR questions. For instance, i have to come here for clarifications. Secondly, besides the instructor, the help-line of TM is terrible. We have only 4 hours available! So if i work during those hours, i have no access to help-line. Even when i do, i get the worst instructors.

Am i the only who is dissatisfied with the TM?

1.  Always look for the hole or flaw in the argument.  Once you spot it, it's much easier to find the right assumption answer.

2.  Be careful to distinguish between Necessary Assumption questions and Sufficient Assumption questions.  Very different animals.

3.  With Justify questions, you're seeking to fill in the hole or flaw in the argument.  See point 1. 

L, so i should never use Negation Technique on Justify questions, right?
I also feel that with Justify questions the answer has elements that are already present in the stimulus while Assumption answers can contain new info. Am I right?

Studying for the LSAT / Assumption and Justify questions

ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I try using Assumption Negation technique to find the correct answer for the Assumption questions but i STILL get wrong answer :(.
Justify question are even worse!

I was wondering if you guys have any general tips on how to attack these two question types.

The positive side is that i prephrase my answers much better now
THANKS!

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
no a guyfriend is just a guyfriend! I am a nun until Sept. 29.  ;)

amen sista


I would think a good banging would help with stress.  This isn't boxing, after all.


I dunno... i can't risk L.; i am afraid i would get distracted

LOL. I think a distraction is exactly what you need! You just have to make sure to kick your "guyfriend" out the door after he makes you "tingle."

At least that's what I did. I mean, what sane person would think that I'd want to waste my precious time "holding her", when I could be thinking about those glorious LSAT problems?  8)

Sure, she was a little angry at first, but I reciprocated and she forgot all about it. And it definitely made me more productive.

Are you by any chance in California? :-*


lollllllllllllllll
sorry :( Washington D.C. here  :)

I am a bit confused about Negation Techniques for Assumption questions; for instance, if we have,
"Some people are not friendly"

Negation would

None of the people are friendly? or None of the people are not friendly?
this is bothering me because i can't figure out what to negate!


and another question,
How do you negate most?

Most people are friendly --> Less than half people are friendly????

Thank you!!!!!
