Studying for the LSAT / Re: Feb 1996 LR #24

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. 

Studying for the LSAT / Feb 1996 LR #24

The shoe factory in Centerville is the town's largest firm and it employs more unskilled workers on a full-time basis than all of the other businessses in town combined.  Therefore, if the shoes factory closes down and ceases all operations more than half of centerville's residents who are unskilled workers with full time jobs in centerville will lose their jobs.

The conclusion above logifcally follows from the premises if which one of the following is assumed?

a.) centerville has more unskilled workers among its pouplations thanit has skilled workers.

b.) The shoe factory in centerville employs no one who is not a resident of centerville.

which one is right?? and why?  thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Feb 1996 LR #14 (HARD HARD PARALLEL REASONING)
« on: August 31, 2005, 08:26:19 PM »
Anthropologist: The culture responsible for the inscriptions at the site must have used fire to fashion iron implements.  Of the Xa, Ye, and Zi, the three cultures known to have inhabited the area surrounding this site, the Xa could obtain iron but could not use fire to fashion implements and the Ye had no access to iron.  Therefore the Zi is the only culture known to be from the surrounding area that could have made these inscriptions.

The reasoning in which one of the following arguments is most closely parallels the reasoning used in the argument above?

a.) Whoever commited the burglary wore size nine shoes. Of the three suspsects in custody, Jensen Kapp and Lomax, neither Jensen nor Lomax could have worn size nine shoes.  Of the three suspects in custody, therefore, nobody but Kapp could be the burglar.

b.) The person who designed the Ultra180 must have been a very patient person.  Of three well-known designers, Morris, Nieves, and Ott, who worked for Ultra's manufacturer when the ultra 180 was designed, Morris and Ott were both impatient people.  Therefore, Nieves is the only person who could have designed the Ultra 180.

Which one is right and WHY IS THE WRONG ANSWER WRONG?  I seriously couldn't distinguish between those two.

Studying for the LSAT / Help with Feb 1996 LR #11

Building a space station, in which astronauts would live for a considerable time, is essential even if the space station project were to contribute no new knowledge about space or earthe that could not otherwise be obtained.  For future missions to explore mars, we will need the medical knowledge that the space station project will give us about the limits of human capacities to live in spacecraft for an extended time.

the argument makes the assumption that

a.) the exploration of mars will be carried out by people traveling in spacecraft and not by robots alone.

b.) the capacities of astronuts are typical of those of ordinary human beings.

Ok, I know that A is right and this is the one I picked on the real test.  However, I don't know how to eliminate B.  If I were to negate B, wouldn't it destroy the argument?  If the capacities of astronutes were not Typical of those or ordinary human beings, this wouldn't really give any medical knowledge about the limits of human capacities to live in spacecraft for an extended time wouldn't it?
Can someone explain this?  Thanks in advance.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: In need of serious advice

Ok, here we go. For those that know me, I have taken the LSAT 3 times. I have went from a 144 to a 146 to a 153. NOW, I am interested in going to law schools out of state and they suggest that I retake the LSAT again because they only admit 20% of the people from out of state. My highest LSAT practice test score was a 160. My question is what does everyone think I should do. I don't want to go to my in school state and most of the schools that I am applying to take the highest LSAT score.

I think you should do what you won't regret.  If you want to take it, what's stopping you?  People will say this or that, but don't let us judge your future.  I think you should do what feels right for you.  IMO you can improve a lot, and you definetely have enough passion to achieve your goal.  I hope nothing but the best.  Cheers! ;)

in waves?

BTW, I always bubble one at a time (LR, RC or LG). I'm a little paranoid.

Doing the LR in waves means that I answer the questoins with short stimulus first since they're the easier ones, and then tackle the longer stimulus.  This helps me gain easy points not to mention momentum.
