Studying for the LSAT / Confused about this question
« on: March 04, 2005, 03:56:53 PM »
This is a LR question, the questions goes as the following:
On the way from nest to food source, most ants species leave trail of chemicals which they use to guide themselves between food and their nests.  All chemicals evaporate when temperature is above 45 degrees as it is typical during afternoons in places like the Sahara. 

It asked the passage most strongly supports which answer choice, my choice is:
E) If any Saharan ants forage for food in the afternoon, those ants forage for food less efficiently when temp are above 45 degree than they do when temp is below 45 degree. 

The reasoning is that when the temp is above 45, chemical will evaporate, the ants will not be able to use chemicals to guide them from food to nest, thus, they won't work as efficiently. 

However, the correct choice is:
A) If ants live in Sahara, and forage food only in afternoon, they use different substance that do not evaporate when temp is 45 to guide them. 

I don't see how this can be more correct than the choice I picked.  Can someone explain the reasoning behind this? 

Studying for the LSAT / Score doesn't improve, what to do now?

I have been studying for LSAT for maybe 1 month.  Have done several practice tests.  But my score doesn't seem to improve.  It usually falls between 160 - 166.  My first ever practice score was around 162 I think, so not much improvement there.  My most recent score however, was like 155.  I am seriously disheartened by this.   ???
I have read some testprep books by Princeton and Kaplan, my personal opinion is that they are not very helpful.  The approach I am taking right now is mostly doing practice test, and then study those I have done wrong,figuring out why my answer is wrong and so on.  But what am I doing wrong? Can I still hope to get a good score on the June test?
