Since virtually everyone I spoke with advised me against buying a copy, I undermined their argument by borrowing one from the library.

I love its introduction.  Perfection motivates me.  But are its questions taken from actual LSATs or not?  I've been working through it and some of the questions seem a little fuzzy.

Studying for the LSAT / Parallel Reasoning Questions

I haven't found a sure-fire way of answering these.  Sometimes I diagram/abstract the logic or search for key words like "must" or "most" or "could be," but I flounder just as often.

Is anybody recklessly proficient with these?  How?!

It's fickle.

Studying for the LSAT / PrepTest 27, Section I, # 9 and 10

And I would have done well on the test if it wasn't for those questions.

Did anyone else have trouble with it?

Studying for the LSAT / How Many PrepTests should I Complete Per Week?

I've heard a variety of opinions on this board, but a superb test-taker told me that once a day is the best preparation for the LSAT.  Three weeks of that, he said, and you'll begin solving RC questions in your sleep.

Granted, that's flimsy "testimonial" support, but it still sounds correct.  What do you think?

Studying for the LSAT / In What Ways is RC Harder?
« on: August 17, 2007, 10:41:13 AM »

I just solved the June 2007 RC section (timed), and I missed a surprising four questions.  The Rita Dove analogy question should have been more obvious, and the "evolutionary origins of music" prompt was somewhat rough, but I didn't think that the passages and questions were radically different than anything I had seen before.

Can any proponents of the "harder RC" interpretation explain their viewpoint?

I know it sounds like a Seinfeld routine, but the extra "101" cushion seems helpful on the old tests, while "100" is such an exacting, terrifying number.

After diligently reading over the Powerscore Games book twice, and solving all 100 problems in a practice book, I've managed to bring my acumen for practice Games up to speed and near-perfection, but I still find myself only solving 21 or 22 problems correctly.  There's always a slip.  For instance, I worked through the October 1997 Game yesterday and missed two questions that, in retrospect, I could have solved easily.

Has anyone had a similar experience with a "glass ceiling" for the Games section?  How did you overcome it?
