Studying for the LSAT / Someone please diagram these for me
« on: August 26, 2004, 11:36:08 PM »
I am looking at the LR bible, and they list these phrases as indications of cause and effect.  Which way would the logic flow in each case

e.g. they list "caused by, because of, etc"

X is caused by Y [e.g. this would be Y-->X]

X is because of Y
X is responsible for Y
X is the reason for Y
X leads to Y
X is induced by Y
X is promoted by Y
X is determined by Y
X is produced by Y
X is a product of Y
X played a role in Y
X was a factor in Y
X is an effect of Y

As much cache as the poignant story of synchronized diving has, I want out.

Law School Applications / noell: where are you applying

yes you!

Ok, it's not a big deal, but look at how he said it.  "Public good"?  Hmm... I paid 50 bucks to be part of this "public" that would benefit from the Logic Games Bible.  Very well-written book, though.

Thanks for your message and your kind comments. I have reviewed the
issue you referenced on page 148, and you are correct: the two diagrams
should be reversed. I will have that correction posted today. Thank you
very much for pointing that out to me.

Regarding personal acknowledgement for submitted corrections, we have
decided not to follow that path. Please let me explain why. We look at
LSAT preparation as an education endeavor, not a competition to point
out mistakes and then get credit for them. We hope that in the spirit of
the public good that individuals will point out errors to us for
posting. If not, we expect that they will be found anyway as the book is
used by our students and teachers.

With your question on strengthening arguments, I am not sure which page
you are referring to. If you could tell me exactly what page you are
referencing, then I would be happy to provide you with more context for
the comments.

Please diagram these sentences for me, and tell me what is wrong with them.

"The only plants in the garden were tulips, but they were tall tulips.  So the only plants in the graden were tall plants."
