##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: Deceptively Simple Sufficient Assumption Question
« on: September 04, 2007, 04:13:08 PM »
I just did the 95 test this morning, but this question was not on it.  What test is this from because I recall solving it recently.

##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should I go for the Dec LSAT?

Depends on what you are scoring and where you are going, BUT if you're a URM (from your avatar), you'll probably be excepted everywhere with a 160.

##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Buffs: Negating "Any"
« on: September 04, 2007, 03:25:02 PM »
If it's a formal logic problem, any = all and in formal logic "some" is a subset of "all"

##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: Formal Logic on LR
« on: September 04, 2007, 02:21:58 PM »
I read the LRB before taking the class, and the emphasis on Formal logic is completely different.  In the book, it seems like a Huge deal, and the class, just breezed right through it.

Just master the "all, most, and some ladder" and the the rules of reversibility.

For myself, I find them the easier questions on the test.

It's bogus.

Prep companies like to give the impression that they've devised special techniques that make solving LR questions as simple as drawing a bunch of squiggly lines and arrows. They do this so you'll buy their stupid books.

That's not to say everything they preach is made up crap, but a lot of it is. If something seems like a waste of time, don't do it.

Bogus?

While I'm certain PowerScore and the like may overstate it, I'd be weary about calling it bogus because there is usually a problem or two that requires knowledge of formal logic.

And only Benadryl works for me.

Does not Benadryl put you to sleep? I take 75 mg every night to help me sleep. (along with many others..)

I'm good at tests.

So, why are you browsing a "studying for LSAT" forum?  That is like browsing an erectile dysfunction forum, and saying I can get a hard-on.  Not many are believing you... (nor do they care)

##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: The 5-minute reading plan
« on: September 02, 2007, 02:21:23 PM »
No offense, but the idea of reading 600+ pages in a single day is rather absurd...I'm a fast reader, but I doubt that I could handle that.

None taken, but I've read all the books and you have not.  The amount of pages means nothing, it's the density of the material.  You have less than 4 weeks, read them as quick as possible, then, apply the concepts over and over and over and over...

I now know why people post here 24/7, this is the only break I get from studying....

Read all three in one day, then, refer back to them as needed.  I spent way too much time concentrating on the books and concepts rather than applying them and taking practice tests.
