Studying for the LSAT / TM methods?
« on: November 03, 2007, 01:18:12 PM »
Can anyone tell me if there is a way to learn a about the TM methods without taking a course?  Is there a book out there somewhere?  I dont believe TM is offered in my area so I dont think any of the tutors I'll find will be familiar with them.

I'd like to compare the TM techiniqes to the ones I'm using now and see which I like better.

Thanks

Site Suggestions and Announcements / LSAT tutor section?
« on: September 26, 2007, 10:23:34 AM »
Would it be possible to develop an area that could help people studying for the LSAT find tutors in their area?  Maybe even allow them to rate the quality of their tutor? 

I just finished an LSAT prep course and realized, after my money was gone, how much better it would of been spent on tutoring.  Don't get me wrong the course helped but I wasted a lot of time that should of been spent working on my weaknesses instead of the weaknesses of others.

Maybe tutors and/or LSAT students would be willing to pay a small fee for every referral they recieved from the sight if it is an issue of money? 

The area could help people find tutors in their region and maybe even tell the future LSAT takers about each tutors (self described) strengths?  Maybe people that could be confirmed to have been connected to their tutor via the site could rate the tutor on their strengths and weaknesses?

I could see this helping a lot of people and drawing a lot of traffic for the site. 

Anyone else have any opinions on this?

Studying for the LSAT / suggestion...
« on: September 25, 2007, 10:59:51 AM »
Maybe its against the rules or something but a list of tutors by region/state and maybe even a rating system would of really helped me out.  Could of saved me from taking this course.  Not that I didnt benefit from it but I would of benefitted more, and saved money, with a good tutor and good materials.

Is there a reason this hasnt been implemented here?  Seems a lot of people end up here looking for this kind of help or info on courses and they would benefit significantly from it.  Save them from courses that might not suit their specific needs.

I imagine tutors/ students might even be willing to pay a small fee for this kind of service if thats what the hold up is?

I'm ready to add one to the list as soon as someone finishes the code.

I eventually figured out all the answers to this game but it took me forever because I was muscling through them.

Once I got into the questions that asked about the standings after 3 rounds of matches I figured their must be an easier way but I dont see it.

I'm setting up each round figuring out all the possibilites and then branching off tree style.

Is there an easier way?

Studying for the LSAT / Flaw in the reasoning general question...
« on: September 14, 2007, 08:56:47 AM »
So I've got this list of "13 classic errors of reasoning" and the first thing I thought when I looked at it was has anyonenoticed any correlatoin between the phrasing of the question stem and the type of error?

I know this may seem like a silly question but this seems to be one of my tougher Question types.  I always seem to narrow it down to 2 answers and then get stuck.  Anyone have any advice/ insights?

Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / LR parrallel reasoning questions question...
« on: September 14, 2007, 08:52:47 AM »
Can anyone familiar with the PS system for attacking these questions help me?  On the "Premise Test" method, can anyone give me a list of the words that are acceptable to use on the premise test?

I know the obvious ones... some, all, not all, none, most, always, some are not, never...
any others?

...and on the "Double the Conclusion" method all I'm trying to do is find a repeat of strong words in the conclusion?  Like never, always, and what else?

Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / filling in bubbles
« on: September 14, 2007, 08:45:13 AM »
Say I dont finish a section like LG on test day...  Then I do an RC section after and finish with 3 miutes to spare... without flipping back in the booklet is it permissable to fill in guesses on the LG section of my bubble sheet since time on that section has been called?

Studying for the LSAT / One more timing question...
« on: August 30, 2007, 01:55:11 AM »
I plan on taking in september.  I took a course, been studying fairly hard core for the last month+.  In other words I got through UG with a hell of alot less work than I'm putting in now.

I'm not thrilled with my progress.  I can do games but getting them under 9 minute is still impossible unless the planets line up properly. 

Finally heres the question...

I set my egg timer for 8 and 3/4 minutes.  I start the game.  I get as much done as I can before the timer goes off.  What do I do after it goes off?  What is going to help me improve the most?  Do I finish the game and see how long it takes?  Do I set it aside and come back to it later?  Do I print up another copy and do it again in a day or two?  What do I do to get my time under 8:45? 

Thanks.
