Studying for the LSAT / How Are You Beefing Up Your RC Score?
« on: August 21, 2007, 09:41:02 AM »
I usually miss between 0-3 on this section, so I've been scrutinizing old RCs and local editorials.  Does anyone have a better idea?  I wish PS made a RC Bible.

Huh?  How are you even supposed to begin approaching this one?  What's going on?

Studying for the LSAT / Will Your Scores be Higher on Game Day?

I always seem to miss 7-12 questions on my Practice LSATs (~167-174), but it's over silly, careless mistakes that I'm hoping test day stress will alleviate.  Did anyone have this experience?

Studying for the LSAT / All You Need to Know for a Perfect Score on LR

I've began making a list with a fellow test-taker:

1.  Necessary and Sufficient conditions.

This is vital for adequate performance.

2.  Casuality

Be able to read a prompt an pick out the causes.  Notice casuality buzzwords.

3.  Assumption Negation Technique

Be able to weed out necessary conditions that compromise answer choices on assumption questions.

4.  Agree/Disagree Test

Be able to use this on "two-speakers-disagree" questions to determine what's the crux of disagreement.

5.  Principle - a broad abstraction that specifies what you should do in particular cases.

. . .

I'll continue later. 


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.

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, 08:41:13 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?
