Could you give me an example how you would use if/else statements and while loops to solve LSAT type questions?
I don't have any specific examples, but I found this most useful in the parallel reasoning questions. I label the "parts" A, B, C, etc. really quickly. Then just write out if A then B. if not C then B. etc for the question and answers. Knocks off most of the answers pretty quickly for me.
VB.Net is bearable, much better than old style VB, but still. Makes me feel like a child typing those silly key words (friend, me, etc).
Nice to see some other CS people on here. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

I miss Java. I've had to program in mostly VB.Net this summer and I can't wait to get back to Java.
Anyways, I don't really know any good diagramming books. I just went partly through the 10 real LSATs then went and took the test. Anyways, "all" is just and upside down A and "some" is just a backwards E. Not sure about most, though. hmmmm
Good luck to you.
Tried that once at my college. Turned out a couple were actually visiting high school students, so I got arrested.
I'm legal, though. So if you set up a strip club give me a call. I need some cash bad.

I'm a math minor, CS emphasis and sometimes I convert the problems into if then else statements or while loops, stuff like that for the logical reasoning. Doesn't work for all of them and I don't know if it will work for you, but sometimes writing a the problem underneath it helps me to focus on the logic rather than the words.
You have plenty of time to work on these two sections, though. You should be fine.
With a full clinical trial, all of the bad points about the surgery will most likely be found. However, if clinical trials are not used, then possible terrible side effects to the surgery will not be found.
Put another way:
The argument assumes that the only reason for clinical trials of medications is to test the correct dosage. However, problems and side effects of the medication also arise during clinical trials. So clinical trials are still needed for new surgery procedures as well.
Hope this helps. Good luck with your studying!
