##### Studying for the LSAT / Re: Strengthen, Justify and Assumption Questions
« on: May 07, 2008, 05:17:16 AM »
Strengthen questions- identify the argument structure ie cause and effect or sufficent necessary. Determine the conclusion. Pick an answer choice that would strengthen the conclusion and make it more valid and harder to weaken.

Justify-or Sufficient Assumption- look for the missing premise/conclusion. If you break the question down as in diagraming the premises and conclusion, you can usually identify the missing piece. I like to add the answer choice I choose into the stimuli and read it. It ususally makes the stimuli make more sense. Every stimuli that this type of reasoning will have IF in the stimuli. The missing piece of info will be sufficient for the argument to be valid but not necessary.

Necessary Asumption- Look for the piece of info that must be present for the argument to be valid. Test the answer choice by negating it, which if it is the right aswer, will weaken the argument. The information is necessary to know in order for the argument to be valid.

Once you get those things down, use Jefforts Logical Reasoning Question Finder to drill those questions. The link is at the bottom of his reply.

Danmcd,

I e-mailed you regarding getting together to study. Are you taking the testmasters course? I e-mailed them to see if anyone else was signed up. They said that they needed a minimum of 3 people to run a course and 3 people are signed up! Don't drop out, whoever you are!!

Believe me, I have to work out my studying around my traveling! I am working here for 2 years and the job just funds my traveling addiction! I am going to join the study group. I am in Battersea. I am into the FA Cup at the moment. What do I need to do to get involved in the discussion group. Can I just read the threads and I will be caught up?

Is there anyone out there that is taking the LSAT in June in London? I am in London and I just signed up for the TestMasters course. I am self-studying as well and would love to set up a study group! I have asked this before. I just wanted to see if there are any recent newbies!
