Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 [6]
I have a million watches, but none where I can actually look at in one second to know exactly what minute of the hr it is- at that makes a huge diff on test day . Gosh, people who were able to use those silent timers were soo lucky!

Any suggestions? I'm thinking getting those kids watches..

Studying for the LSAT / Should I do preptests prior to 1997 ?
« on: November 14, 2007, 06:22:52 PM »
I took all the preptests from the "Next 10" and now I am thinking of working backwards to the preptests from the "More 10" and etc. However, do the tests prior to "Next 10" good studying tools? B/c I keep hearing from people that the games have changed and the LR and RC have gotten tougher.

Should I still do them?
Assuming that those preptests are "easier," how many points on avg should I deduct to know where I am really standing?

Thanks so much!

My g-d, this game took over the 8:40 sec. It took forever to diagram and do the linking/deductions! Way more time consuming than the birds in the forest game.

Any suggestions as to how to do this game more quickly? I was thinking that instead of wasting time coming of with all the possible links before I do the questions that I should just go on to the questions and develop them the links as I go through them.

Thanks, guys!

Can someone explain this to me? I did the sufficient/necessary diagram. But, it did not help to figure out the correct answer.

Agricultural economist: We can increase agricultural production without reducing biodiversity, but only if we abandon conventional agriculture. Thus, if we choose to sustain economic growth, which requires increasing agricultural production, we should radically modify agricultural techniques.

Which of the following  principles, if valid, most help to justify the agricultural economists's reasoning?

Credited Response: Economic growth should not be pursued at the expense of a loss of biodiversity.

The other answer choices: a) agricultural production should be reduced if doing so would increase biodiversity.
                           c) economic growth should be sustained only as long as agricultural production continues to increase.
                           d) preserving biodiversity is no more important than increasing agricultural production.
                           e) agricultural techniques should be radically modified only if doing so would further the extent to which we can increase agricultural production.

Is it just me that cannot figure why the answers to the following two stimuli are correct?

first one: people today place an especially high value on respect for others; yet, in their comedy acts, many of today's most popular comedians display blatant disrespect for others. But, when people fail to live up to the very ideals they hold in highest esteem, exaggeration of such failings often forms the basis of successful comedy. Thus, the current popularity of comedians who display disrespect in their acts is hardly suprising.

the assumption depends on which of the following:
correct answer: People who value an idea especially highly do not always succeed in living up to this ideal.

2. Brown dwarfs- dim red stars that are too cool to burn hydrogen- are very similar in appearance tp red dwarf stars, which are just hot enough to burn hydrogen. Stars, when first formed, contain substantial amounts of the element lithium. All stars but the coolest of the brown dwarfs are hot enough to destroy lithium completely by converting it to lithium. Accordingly, any star found that contains no lithium is not one of these collest brown dwarfs.

question: the argument depends on assuming which of the following?

correct answer: None of the coolest brown dwarfs has ever been hot enough to destroy lithium.
