Studying for the LSAT / 9 days enough for LG bible?
« on: November 23, 2004, 08:18:44 PM »
I've taken a few practice tests and have messed up on logic games...usually there's one game that I can't get to becaue the other games take too long so I endup getting around 6-12 wrong per section.

I've been going on kaplan's methods and intuition thus far.

i'm looking for you think it's too late in the game to change the way i approach the section by using the LG Bible....or is the LG bible something that can be absorbed in 10 days.  ???

Studying for the LSAT / LR Question; PT 22, Sec. IV, number 18.

Obviously, we cannot in any real sense mistreat plants.  Plants do not have nervous systems, and having a cnervous sytem is necessary to experience pain.

The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

a)   Any organism that can experience pain can be mistreated

b)   Only organisms that have nervous systems can experience pain

c)   Any organism that has a nervous system can experience pain

d)   Only organisms that can experience pain can be mistreated

e)   Any organism that has a nervous system can be mistreated.

I was able to narrow it down to a, d and e because i know its a justtify the conclusion question...eventually I decided upon D, but am not sure why it is a better answer than A  or E.  If anyone can explain this better than the kaplan explanations I would appreciate it.

I also translated the answers to conditional reasoning...

a)  Pain  -->  Mistreated

d)  Mistreated --> Pain

e)  Nervous System -->  Mistreated


Studying for the LSAT / Formal Logic/Conditional Reasoning in LR Bible
« on: November 06, 2004, 06:05:11 PM »
Maybe somebody can help me out with this..
There's talk of the "double not-arrow" in the conditional reasoning section of the LR Bible when you have two terms that can't occur together.

In the same chapter, there's discussion of either/or conditional reasoning.

My question is....if we have a conditional statement like "either a or b, but not both"...

then isnt that essentially the same as a <--|--> b?

The LR Bible doesn't mention it being a double-not arrow statement, but I think it is.  They consistenly refer to either "a or b, but not both" as

if a --> not b
if not a --> b

Am I wrong in saying that "a or b, but not both" is a double not-arrow statement?

Thanks in advance to anybody who can help out with this little problem question.

Personally, I've always disliked the shape of Canada.  It screams WMDs.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Practice Tests...(more serious)
« on: October 29, 2004, 04:54:22 AM »
hey guys...i'm about to begin my studying for the LSAT, and because I'm unemployed (by choice ;)) I have a lot of time.

I was going to take a practice test everyday from now until the you guys think that's a good idea, b/c it seems a lot of people advise studiers not to burn out and what not.

also...are the earlier tests (Preptest I, II...)  significantly different than the more recent exams?  if I do practice on earlier tests is it actually gonna hurt me in the long run.

i heard that the logic games and reading comp have gotten more difficult, while the logical reasoning questions have become more handleable.

anybody have any thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Dual Degree in Law School
« on: October 28, 2004, 05:45:15 PM »
I'm thinking about pursuing a masters in addition to my JD...

1)  do I have to take the GREs
2)  is it possible to be rejected for acceptance into one degree program (like the JD) but accepted into another degree program (MA).
3)  is it possible to get your MA in something that you have not focused on during undergradaute studies.

not familiar with any of the masters stuff so any info would be helpful.
much thanks.

Santa Singh decided to take the MBA exam. He could understand every thing except for the LOGIC part. One day when he was reading, one of his non-sikh friends came home.

Friend: Santa, How is your MBA preparation?
SantaSingh: Every thing is fine, but I can not understand Logic.
Friend: Logic is very easy.
Santasingh: Can you give me an example, so that I can understand.
Friend: OK. Do you have fish pot in your house?
Santa: YES.
Friend: Logically, there will be water in it.
Santa: YES.
Friend: Logically, there will be fish in it.
Santa: YES.
Friend: Logically, someone will be feeding the fish.
Santa: YES.
Friend: I take a guess that your wife will be feeding the fish.
Santa: YES.
Friend: so, logically, your are married.
Santa: YES.
Friend: So, that means you are a heterosexual.

Santa Singh was very glad and he understood logic. Next day he sees Banta Singh who was also preparing for the MBA exam.

Santa: How is your MBA preparation?
Banta: Everything is fine except for the logic.
Santa: Oh, logic is easy.
Banta: Please, give me an example.
Santa: Do you have a fish pot in your house?
Banta: NO, I don't.
Santa: YOU HOMO!!!

i hope nobody takes offense to this....just something to lighten the mood with the lsats  ~1 month away.

i've been out of school for a few months now, and am applying to law school for fall 2006 (so that's 2 years off).  just want to see what other people's plans are/were.
