Studying for the LSAT / The LRB
« on: May 18, 2005, 11:39:26 PM »
Im currently geting about 3-7 wrong on each LR section and maybe 5 or less total wrong on the RC and LG combined. if i could score on the LR what I do on the LG and RC then id be in line for 170, but no matter how many practice sections i take (almost running out) i cant get it any lower. would the LRB help to go from getting 6 wrong to about 3 wrong or less? Ive exhausted all the other prep stuff = princeton, LSAC, LSAT 180, etc. Does the LRB have any helpful info these might not have?

got an lsat question - im registered to take the test in june  and started hardcore studying a month ago so by the time i take it ill have worked a month and a half. my score's gone from 155-158 to about 166-170. i really would like to get 170 since my GPA is kinda low. im getting closer - ive  hit it once. i think i mihgt get it on the june test, but its definitely iffy since its only about 3 weeks away. if i wait til october, ill ahve four more months to study but that feels like it might be too long. maybe i should take it now while i have momentum? i do feel confident though that a few more months might be less time than i realize and i think with more study i can definitely feel more confident about a 170. any suggestions from people who have already gone through the process. would a month and a half have been enough time to get to your best score?

are you saying that because if im around that score now (actually, maybe more like 165-168 right now) then ill be easily able to take it to 170 by october? you think four more months at this will solidify it?

a month and a half isnt enough time to get ready for this thing if i want a 170. i mihgt be able to do it in june, but why not wait til october? besides wont it be easier to score high when all the normal people are taking it rather than the overachievers who just want to knock out their 170's an be done with it?

why not E? it explains why they would want to expand - they're anticipating other airlines going bankrupt and the need to accomadate for those extra passengers.

Passenger volume in the airline industry has declined dramatically over the past two years, and thus fewer travelers and fewer planes are using airports. Since airport expansion can be warranted only by increases in air traffic volume, and since it will probably be at least five years before passenger volume returns to and then exceeds its previous level, it seems surprising that now is the time that airports are going ahead with plans to expand their passenegr terminal facilities.

which one of the following, if true, provides the best reason in favor of the airports' timing of their planned expansions?

a) it is generally more difficult to finance major construction projects when the economy is in a period of decline

b) low volume in passenger air travel permits airport expansion with relatively little inconvenience to the public

c)a rise in fuel costs that is expected in the near future will drive up the cost of all forms of transportation, including airline travel

d) when passenger volume begins to grow again after a period of decline, most airlines can, initially, absorb the increase without adding new routes or new planes

e) a sustained decline in passenger travel could lead to the failure of many airlines and the absorption of their routes by those airlines that survive

Studying for the LSAT / Available at a bookstore?
« on: May 13, 2005, 05:11:12 PM »
last time i was at a borders bookstore i was surprised to notice they had some of the lsac study prep material like "next ten real lsats." i was thinking of swinging by an area of town with a couple large bookstores before work. Any chance of finding the LRB or LGB there or are they order only?

E was my first choice too. Postulate is defined as - " to assume or claim as true, existent, or necessary." Let me provide another couple of sentences that come before the one i wrote because it might help:

Acting on the hypothesis that pitchblende must contain at least one other radioactive elemnt, Curie was able to isolate of pair of previously unknown elements, polonium and radieum. Turning her attention to the rate of radioactive emission, she discovered that uranium emitted radiation at a consistent rate, even if heated or dissolved. Based on these results, Curie concluded that the emission rate for a given element was constant. Furthermore, because radiation appeared to be spontaneous, with no discernible difference between radiating and nonradiating elements, she was unable to postulate a mechanism by which to explain radiation.

does that help anyone? doesnt help me. i still dont see why E is wrong.
