Studying for the LSAT / Re: MASTER LR LIST - ONLY 6 LEFT!!!
« on: December 04, 2005, 07:01:26 PM »
Ok, I've got one

It was a parallel reasoning question with a "therefore A or B" conclusion. I don't remember the stem, but the answer I chose had to do with computers and had the line "therefore, it will either be password protected or encrypted." Does anyone remember this question?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Length of study prior to Dec LSAT

About 3 months.

Unlike many others, I wasn't obsessive about doing every single preptest known to man. I just did one once a week, on Sat or Sun, at 8:30 AM, 5 sections straight, no breaks. During the rest of the week I worked through and re-read the LRB and did practice sections of 35 LR questions. Sometimes I'd do sets of 4 RC passages, or 4 games, timed. Then I'd go over whatever questions I got wrong. I was more into "practicing" and perfecting my technique during the week, and then putting my skills to the test on the weekend.

It was universal themes because Gluck only really mentioned that the tradition transcended gender.

Also, I didn't put specialized roles...though it sounds good now. Still, HIGHLY hurts it. I put that they were no more technologically advanced than the previous people...not a lot going for that one either though. Just figured because the entire argument states how these guys were so sophisticated before saying they were just crazy.

Though I do agree that safer environment was NOT implied...same if not harsher.

The only thing safer environment had going for it was that the passage stated that they must have been more in control of their situation to have time for people to be full time artists, maybe "stabler" environment would be a better way to look at it.

I don't think it was "stabler".. the wording was something like "less hostile than that of the Neaderthals" or something. There was also a quote within the passage stating that only those who didn't have to worry about survival could have the time to dabble in art (rough translation). So... I picked "less hostile" over "specialized" and "more tech. advanced".

OK. This is a classic distractor or whatever. It was DEFINITELY specialized roles ... do you think someone just played shaman, or magic man on Friday nights?

The reference to the art being for the bougoise is the one that the argument was countered AGAINST.



ok, but if i remember correctly, the reason why I didn't choose the specialized answer is b/c it was worded "more specialized than other civs" or something along those lines. You don't know that the Aosdifodsifdf-whatever's were more specialized than other civilizations, just that shamans existed (and that they were specialized). But if I read/remember wrong, then yes, you may be correct.

heres a canadian one what did you have for it?

how does the author feel about the laws...will they change and does he think they should

i put not sure that they will, but confident that they should.

There was another question in the cave passage that stated something about how the paintings weren't visible to many.

Answer choices had soemthing to do with:

only certain people were allowed to see and represented something they worked hard for? 

my mind's just about going blank now.
 

I chose the answer that said the paintings weren't made for asthetic purposes (the passage later goes on to say that the paintings were used to help hunters conquer their prey, etc).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: For those of us who F**ed up on games today.
« on: December 03, 2005, 09:11:27 PM »
I was starting to feel like it was just me who thought that the game section was bad...  Usually it's my strong section and I agree that today's game section was not so much difficult but some what tricky.  I was thrown off by the section and thinking that I might have to cancel.  The worst thing is that I can't even throw away the prep books and will have to study more for the Feb. exam.  That really sucks.  I was really looking forward to doing well today so that I can end this LSAT madness.        

No, I don't think you're the only one. I think previous test takers overstated how "easy" the games have gotten. It's more doable but I don't think the section as a whole is super easy, although some individual games may be.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: POST-MORTEM December '05 - Logic Games

So, i got over confidant when the first game (dorm room) was so easy. Games are my best secion, but when I got to the second one, I freaked out, something about eight crops, mnaybe??? I cant even remember, I dont know why panic overcame me and tryed to go on to the last two and go back to number two, but my panic just increased. So then I told myself to snap out of it, this is ridiculous, and suddenly everything fell into place, no more panic, oh except on the rock one...that one sucked....

yeah, I did the worst on the crop one too, even though it was just good 'ol linear sequencing...
