Studying for the LSAT / Re: June 2006 Section 2 17 & 23
« on: August 20, 2013, 12:25:07 PM »
In regards to #17, it's important to keep in mind that the conclusion states we cannot determine the intelligence of nonhuman animals simply by first determining that those nonhuman animals exhibit consciousness. But what evidence is used to support that conclusion?  Only that human beings can exhibit goal-oriented behavior without conscious awareness of that behavior.  But what if it were true that complex-goal oriented behavior did not require intelligence?  If that were true, then the fact that human beings are able to exhibit such behavior would have no bearing on intelligence, and the conclusion regarding intelligence of non-human animals would fall entirely flat.   

Because negating that answer choice causes the conclusion to fall flat, that choice is an assumption on which the argument depends.

Bar Exam / Free MBE Strategies Class
« on: March 18, 2013, 08:19:30 PM »
I've scheduled a free online class for students who intend to soon begin preparing for the July MBE. I'd like for the class to serve as a general introduction on how I believe one can best utilize his/her time studying for the MBE, as well as to provide general information about the MBE. The class will be held on Tuesday, March 26th at 7pm (EST).

Specifically, I'll be discussing the following:

--Information about the current MBE, as well as changes that are set to take place in 2015.

--A four-step process for effectively utilizing the available time preparing for the MBE.

--How to make the most of your time studying the content outlines.

--The essentials knowledge that should be gained from practicing questions.

--How the writers of the MBE create distractors (wrong answer choices) within each question.

--The necessity of using process of elimination on the MBE

--Why the words "if" "because" and "unless" are very important when reading MBE answer choices.

--The importance of endurance on the MBE, and how to increase endurance while also focusing on subject-matter knowledge

The above is a sample of what will be covered, and time will also be set aside for students to ask questions.


For all those who sign up, I hope you find it helpful! You can register for the free online class @ http://silvermanbarprep.e-lectazone.com/tools/event.asp?id=731721112685854

Best,

I tutor the MBE both in person in NY, and over Skype to those located outside of New York. I provide a free hour so that all students can determine whether my teaching style will best help them to achieve the most positive results, and I also have numerous references from students I have worked with in the past, including students I worked with for the most recent administration of the exam in February 2011. After the initial hour, I charge a very reasonable rate for those students who choose to continue on with the tutoring.

Glad I could help  ;D

"I can see why B is a good answer choice, but I can't determine why A is not a good answer."

For that question, answer A is the correct response.

Choice D tells us that the gravitational pull of Pluto is not the sole cause of Neptune's irregular orbit.  This does not necessarily mean that it is a a cause at all.  In other words, I could say that my praying for rain is not the sole cause of the rain storm.  That statement could mean that it's not the only cause, but could also mean that it's not a cause at all.

In any case, though, choice D is correct here because it was originally thought that Neptune's orbit was caused by the the gravitational pull exerted on it by Pluto.  We then learned that Pluto is too small to exert that kind of pull.  Yet, Neptune is still orbiting.  If Neptune is still orbiting, and Pluto is too small to be exerting the kind of pull necessary to cause the orbit, then there must be some other contributing cause to Neptune's orbit, which is what choice D tells us.
