Especially the Lawyers Club.  The school really seems to talk this sucker up; is it worth living in and eating there with no kitchen facilities or is off-campus housing so wonderfully plentiful and cheap that one shouldn't bother?

Practicing games over and over and over and over and over again.  But not a sixth time.  That would be overkill.

If I did a survey of 1000 voters and concluded something about the next general election, a weaken statement might say that I only surveyed Democrats or people who drive VW Busses.

...while a flaw would say something like 'The author cites as evidence a sample that may be unrepresentative...'

I always found the math problems easy, although students seem to have a world of difficulty with them.

Definitely agree on the dioxin/fish/mill weaken question, that one's tough.

Don't recall the bee vision question.  I'll have to look it up.  2003 seems like a hard year overall.

Key to the bee question is realizing that the stimulus describes two causal relationships: bee vision caused flower development and flower color didn't cause bee vision development. TCR affirms the latter relationship.

The bee vision question is on 13-66.

Yeah, OK, you see that kind of 'which is cause, which is effect?' reasoning from time to time - like the Crux question about whether bad grades caused students to work or the other way around.  I don't think this question is particularly tricky, though; even though TCR is fairly twisted, the other 4 responses are pretty useless.

I think in some cases the types of questions have been getting harder.  For instance, title questions, which come up more frequently in newer tests, are more difficult than direct main point questions.

PrepTest 24 - December 1997: Game #3 Textbooks and publisher, editor.
Anyone have an explanation for this one?
It took me forever to finish this one and I still had too many errors.


Rosenberg and Juarezstern Are Dead?  Even the explanation of that game takes twenty minutes.  It's most easily set up as a  4-tiered ordering game split with two tiers for each character, one for the textbook and one for whether it's introductory or advanced.  The major deductions are that J1=R2, R5=J6, and R must go A-I-A-I-A-I.

Anyone have a candidate for hardest individual LR problem?  I nominate the titanium ink/Gutenberg Bible question.

Maize and C4 Photosynthesis is pretty brutal.  I agree that Basins of Attraction isn't all that bad.

What, exactly, does 'affordable for NY' mean?
