Studying for the LSAT / How did everyone do on the JAM session?
« on: September 09, 2005, 01:05:06 AM »
I thought the Games section was fairly hard even though I knew I was getting better with speed.
The third section about different regions totally blew me off.  I managed to get 17/23 and because the games were so tough I thought that the scale for this exam would be abit more lenient.  I just looked at the June 2003 scale(which is where this game was from) and found that the scale was actually brutal tough. 

Did anyone take the june 2003 test as a whole test?  Were the other sections abit easier??

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 20 days to study - Silently freaking out...

try not to stress out too much. when i took the june lsat i took about 5 preptests the week before the real thing, two of them the night before. talk about major burnout. dont try and improve your score too much at the lsat min, at this point it is what it is and will only get worse if you push yourself too much near the end.

Hm.. I don't know... doing 2 tests the night before is definitely a booboo.  However, I think 20 days is sufficient time to get some issues in order.  There maybe people out there who just need a little push to break the mystic 170 barrier or 160 barrier.  It's a little too early to give up the effort. 

I agree.  I'm doing some of the older TM lesson books and I'm starting to get a better understanding of the concepts as well as understanding the concepts of the games a lot better.  I'm starting to see some of the inferences I haven't been able to see before so i definetely think you can improve within twenty day span.  I think the key is to be consistent and not to anything drastically different.

this might mean more if it not your tenth resignation.

Kinda like Jordan retiring for the third time, even though in this instance we won't really miss him. ;)

Bulbasaur:  You're being ignorant.  Read everything more carefully.

Underdog: I do respect all the help you've given me, but I think you're overly favoring Theo.  Theo did infact help me with those two question and I do thank him for that in all honesty.  I made two silly mistakes by not putting the credited response on the question because I posted this after studying 6hours and I was very tired.  I would have apologized for my mistake but before I even had a chance to realize my mistake, Theo responded by calling me a moron.  Now I'm not egotistic enough to not admit my false, but my question is, was this necessary?  This could have been dealt between me and theo and we could've easily moved on.  No hard feelings.  But you had to jump in and say "Don't mess with theo, i got his back." 

Are you in highschool underdog??  Theo and I'm a grown ass man.  We had an disagreement and we can easily just deal with it and move on.  How does taking side help in this matter underdog??  And you say that it's bad for me to call him an idiot while it's fully ok for him to call me a moron??  You're low brother, way low.

People here are mad at theo because either they 1.)understand where i'm coming from
2.) because he not only insulted me, but ALL canadians by making the last comment.

I love the respect.  This is what happens when you devote your time to help others.  I'm glad you think I'm a high school student, because apparently such a high school student was able to help you for the LSAT.  Nevermind it.  Not everyone is perfect, and I'm sure theo would have apologized if this whole situation was not instigated by a few trolls (Garkunkle aka Bulbasaur + his many fake accounts).  Apparently the stress of the LSAT has overwhelmed you, uwofresh, because you took one asinine comment and made it into a commercial.  Good for you and goodbye.

How did I make this in to a commercial? People reponded to it by reading it just like you responded to mine.  That just makes you a hypocrite. 
Theo would have apologized?  Read his last post.  Does that sound like a person that's about to apologize?  Seriously, you gotta stop licking a**.

uwforsh! Is this B) the answer?: "centerville has more unskilled workers among its population than it has skilled workers"   Then this is different from your first posted B)! I bet this is inteded for something else if this is not a mistake.

hey river, no it's not.
yes, it is true that the credited response was "d" on the real test.  However, I put it under B on this post because I was able to narrow it down to 2 possible answer choices.  So naturally i put them as A and B.

Sorry for the confusion.

I did this problem before, neither answer is right.

No, B is the right answer and it just occured to me why.
I realized just now that this isn't an necessary question but a sufficient question.

It says that Centerville employs more unskilled workers on a full-time basis than all other businesses in town combined.  And conclusion like, river stated, mentions RESIDENCE.

so if we were to state "centerville has more unskilled workers among its population than it has skilled workers"  the conclusion would follow because we would be limiting the scope to the residence and not to the outside party. 

Therefore B is the correct answer.  WHEW! :D

Studying for the LSAT / Re: question for everyone taking TM right now

I know they put all the diags as part of the hw except the 4 administered in class and the 4 on the website.  My question is if every single question in the hw besides the 4 in class, the 4 online and the 2 jam sessions.  It seems like the hw didn't have enough reading passages after 2001.  Are there by chance any tests that TM did not include?  Please let me know.  Thanks.

Yeah I noticed that we didn't have a lot of RC past 2001.  My guess is that they're saving it till the last two TM lessons??   I doubt that they wouldn't include it in since they have rights to all the previous LSATs.

It is really the last 30 days...
After 7 months of LSAT prep, I can't believe that this whole process would actually end in less than a month time.

ditto.  It's freaking me out.

Not to play moderator, but here are my observations. Take them with a grain of salt if you'd like.

Disparaging comments do not help others. They lead to animosity, and well, ugly situations like these. Regardless of what mistakes the OP made, they could have been better addressed if Theo directly and objectively pointed out what was the problem instead of making an offensive remark. As an instructor, Theo should know that helpful comments are better received in the absence of hostility from the commenter. Though I'm not an LSAT instructor, my five years of teaching high school math part-time has taught me that abusiveness on the part of the instructor is never well-received. Irrespective of the mistakes that the student makes, especially honest ones done without malicious intent as in this case, a teacher's appropriate reaction should not be disparaging and certainly not abusive. The comment about Canadians in general was most definitely uncalled for.

Objectors might point to the fact that Theo is not really the OP's teacher, but I disagree. If he responded to this thread with the intention of helping, Theo has made himself an instructor; if his intention was simply to call the OP names, then he's little more than a troll. I believe that the latter is highly unlikey, however, given the number of posts that he answered competently. Therefore, as Theo is a de-facto teacher, I believe adjustment in his attitude and reaction is warranted. As he has a history of this sort of behavior, a call for such an adjustment is all the more worthwhile and credible.

On the other hand, efforts at vulgar name-calling in retaliation could have been better spent pointing out Theo's error objectively. Whatever spark Theo ignited was fueled by the string of retaliatory remarks that led to this conflagration.

Thanks for the insightful comment.  I want to take this time to apologize for my childish behavior in retaliating to theo's comment.  I admit my false and will move on.  Next time I post questions, I'll make sure that I don't repeat the same mistake as I have done yesterday.  Thank you again.


How is Robin Singh a fool?  I'm taking Testmasters now, and there is no doubt that his course is responsible for my 14 point jump in score from the first diag to the second diag.  When has he sued students?  Please back up these accusations. 

Are you serious? You've never seen those nazi like letters Testmasters send to students who give their books away? Thats some foolish stuff.

Also, I love Robin. Testmasters is great...I just criticized his hypocricy in terms of his intolerance of breaking contracts.

Further, am'rain I know at least 3 180/4.0s from different fellowships that I've done that have been rejected by both Yale and Harvard. And I know of another that was rejected from Harvard and he had an undergraduate degree from an difficult LAC. Of course they could've been bsing their stats, but I don't think they'd be the type to lie about creditials.

Kinda sucks that we can't sell our TM stuff after spending a fortune.  :-[
Plus, I'm not very thrilled with the helpline either.  They tend to be jerks sometimes, even though most of the helpers were very nice.
