Awesome, so I think I'll just keep doing what I'm doing (small pencil dot on the answer sheet, on the left of every skipped problem, then erasing afterwards). Thanks for the replies.
Not sure how sensitive LSAC's scantrons are. They have told me that bubbling in additional answers (like Q29 on a 28 question section) will not be detected by the scanner. Marks in the margin I'm not sure.
Why don't you just circle the question number in the booklet?
I think I am going to take Dec. LSAT.....
This is the way I diagrammed it:
We are told that Investment is not Decreasing, which means
ID. Via the contrapositive, we know ID--> EW.
Therefore, (A) must be FALSE since we know investment is NOT decreasing (says so right in the stimulus) and the economy is NOT weak (via the contrapositive).
I am posting the question because it bothers me!
Even the earliest known species of land animals, known from fossils dating from the late Silurian period, 400 million years ago, show highly evolved adaptations to life on land. Since neither aquatic nor amphibious animals exhibit these adaptations, early species of land animals must have evolved very rapidly after leaving an aquatic environment.
a) known fossils of early land animals include fossils of animals that lived relatively soon after the first emergence of alnd animals.
e) all animals alive in the late Silurian period lived either exclusively on land or exclusively in the water. --> this is what i picked
Can someone explain why A is right?
Well, as you probably know from my other post, I'm having the same problem, so I can't really give you advice on that. However, I can say personally that I have been able to memorize inadvertently stimuli and correct answer choices from past prep tests, even if they are just examples in books. I started an LR section when I forgot that I had already taken that particular prep test and I could recognize and answer correctly 95% of the questions within that section. It's probably different for each individual, but I would recommend working on fresh prep tests.
Exactly. One reason I'm afraid to run out of tests before the 29th (have all three "10 Actual" books, plus all the latest preptests.) But I've decided to use all I have but the Sept and Dec 2006, and let the chips fall. I too am just screwed on LR - I'm almost perfect on RC and LG, but just cannot get LR down, despite reading the PSLRB twice. I consistently get questions 1-12 perfect, then literally fall apart on 15-25. So, I'm just going to spend the next week doing 15-25 from every section until I get it right.
Life would be a hell of a lot easier if I could figure out how my GPA will be viewed. But with 20 years grade inflation, plus some pretty hefty WE, plus URM, everything but the LSAT seems like a wildcard. Do I apply to UMaine...or UMich? If I wasn't enjoying the intellectual gymnastics so much, I'd really hate it. A lot.
I'm taking off the week before the test and doing a practice EVERY MORNING like it was the real thing. This way, my mind will not put so much stress on it for the real thing - it'll just be the pattern I'd been going through.
I've also been faking taking notes in my classes and secretly doing practice sets. The professor caught me a few times, but he didn't care. They cut grad students a lot of slack.
I also cancelled an exam I had scheduled for the undergrads I'm teaching because it meant I couldn't take off the week of the test.
