I also have been sick since friday. I've been feeling like crap.. ugh. I managed to get 169 when I took my prep test when I was all drugged out and sniffing&coughing like a b**ch. I hope that's a good sign. damn why the week before the test.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: what the hell...please explain this LR

The Answer is D. I did the test containing this problem a few days ago.

Letís track the pattern of this C14 thing. It goes from Atmosphere -> Plants -> Soil/Atmosphere (we donít exactly know, it only says that the plants release them when they die)

D would actually weaken the paleontologistís argument. If D was true, C14 would go from Atmosphere -> Soil, w/o going through the Plants, thus not providing any evidentiary support for paleontologistís claim that those plants have existed more than half a billion years ago. You see the logic here?

C would support the argument by showing that those other portions were clearly never in the water, thereby opening up that possibility of C14 coming into the rock via atmosphere -> plants route.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Woohoo, my first 180!!

hey I am having a similar problem.. My score is fluctuating like crazy. When I review the questions, a lot of them come from mis-reading the rule/stimulus/question stem or skipping a rule in a game.. Even though I've never gotten into the magic 180, my score would be as high as 177 and as low as 168.. with 170~173 being the majority of the score.

The conclusion is that the components of plutoís atmosphere are N, CM, and M in order of decreasing abundance right. In order for this argument to stand, Answer choice C is required as an assumption.

Negate C: If there was some other frozen substance on the surface of Pluto that vaorizes more readily than M but less readily than CM, the conclusion for that ordering of N -> CM -> M would not be correct.

Letís call that some other frozen substance B. if the assumption is false, the order would be N -> CM -> B -> M, which is not the conclusion stated in the stumulus.

The answer would be equally credible if the assumption said there is no other frozen substance on the surface of Pluto that vaporizes more readily than CM but less readily than N. Itís a defender assumption, which is kinda hard to prephrase before you read the answer choices.

Studying for the LSAT / Should I study for 7 days straight?
« on: September 13, 2005, 04:38:41 AM »
With less than 3 weeks for Oct. LSAT, I am really psyched about getting out of my slavish LSAT life. Anyway, I was lucky to have a complete month off to study for this test and am studying full time. (Prep test a day followed by a intensive review, and a few hours drill on the missed Qs from 2 days before and a week before)

I have been taking wednesdays off to chill and not worry about LSAT. Nonetheless, as the days are coming along, I feel kinda guilty for taking a complete day off.. Should I just study for 7 days straight for the remaining period or keep the one day off thing..? I kinda want to use my wednesdays to review on the questions and other prep materials..

I'd appreciate any insights.

=)

IF anyone has the conversion table.. I'd immensely appreciate it~

Studying for the LSAT / Re: It pays to take some time off...

congrats! there is no better confidence booster than that. =) just keep it up and try to make that score consistent.

it seems like you already know the answer for improving LG. you just need to practice like hell. I started with barely finishing 2 games. Now I finish everything with 5 mins remaining. I miss 0~2.. with missing 2 being the bad day for LG.

good luck!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: FOR PEOPLE WHO TOOK THE FEBRURARY 1996 PREPTEST
« on: September 10, 2005, 02:02:28 AM »
yeah it was a bit easier.. I finished with 4 minutes remaining for all sections.. even RC, where I finish with 30 sec to a min.. but thanks to the tough curve, with 92 questions right, I only got 170.

I thought LRs were easier..
games were pretty easy as well, even though the third game ate up my two points.
RC was pretty easy too. I only missed 2 for that geology related passage. I usually miss 3~4(and one question each from each passage. eck) on my average test taking day.

I took the test this morning at the public library.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Doing a 24 preptests in 30 days -- Crazy?
« on: September 02, 2005, 06:11:06 AM »
I have been doing that for the past three weeks. the important thing is to have a complete off day. i was too obsessed with this thing initially that I spent half of my off day to review the questions for the past week. i almost went nuts the following week. It was counter-productive..

so, since then, on my off days, i did nothing that was lsat related. i went out to shop, to check out new art shows, to sit by the pool and do nothing.. and whatever else.

treat this like a job. you spend 8 hours a day at work. 5 hours is like a part time job..

I think 6 days a week, a test a day is duable for those who are studying full time.
