Taken from June 02 section 1, first passage:
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 expl;ain radiation.
13. Which one of the following most accurately expresses the meaning of the word "mechanism" as used by the author in the last sentence of the first paragraph?
a) the physical process that underlies a phenomenom
b) the experimental apparatus in which a phenomenon arises
c) the procedure scientists use to bring about the occurence of a phenomenon
d) then isotopes of an element needed to produce a phenomenon
e) the scientific theory describing a phenomenon

good advice parksky, but taking the oct. exam would be fine for getting an app in by november, right?

thanks amanda. you helped me resolve some issues - including one major one concerning when to apply. i guess the only reason not to take it in october would be the possible decline id have between now and then unless i consistenly work for another three months, which by thwn ill have run out of tests to take. hmmmm, probably keep working for june till now and see where im at, but i definitely think there may be something to be said for taking a break to let all this crammed info set in. i guess i could just do all the questions again unitl im comfortable with every question the lSATs have ever presented (probably not a bad thing) plus my goal might even go from 170 to 175 by then. one more question, if i do decide to go in oct, would it be beneficial to show up anyway for the june and cancel my score or save the money and just pay the deferral rate and take it for the first time in october? can anyone vouch for the process of actually going through it once being a valuable experience to scoring better the second time or am i just obseesive at that point.

i started really going on this test about three weeks ago. in those three weeks ive gone from about 155-158 to 165-168. ive got about three weeks left and want really badly to get a 170, which i have yet to achieve in practice. im getting to the point where im working 3-5 hours a day on this test and will do that until right up till the test (save the last day or two). anyway, at this pace, should i be able to make it or should i start thinking about the oct test? im almost relatively sure that by then ill be able to get a 170, but id like to get my scores out as early as possible in the app process cause i got a low gpa and want to take whatever advantage i can get with early application. anyway, my question to the 170ers, is the confidence and ability to score that high, something i need to acquire over some months of prep or will this breakneck pace be ok. by test day is hould have completed over 30 real LSATs, all taken in the span of a just over a month and a half. 170ers, please share your wisdom.

that many, huh? wow, i guess im just loafing it. ill go first - i probably do a section a day practice and then full tests once a week so maybe about 35-40 average LSAT questions a day. i feel like im making progress too, but i just started about 3 weeks ago so i might put my test off til october.
anyway, just curious how much prep everyone's doing.

just curious - as far as your prep work for the June test, how many LSAT questions from real tests would you say you do in day, on average? this , of course, doesnt include reading from prep company books or anything but you could count the fake questions too. just just want to know if what i consider to be a lot is the same with others.

sorry i did it on purpose to draw attention to my question - judging by the sex for tutoring topic, i knew i could appeal to the board's "other interests."

Harlan is not assigned to the panel O if paul is not assigned to the panel O.
so if -P(o) then -H(o), right?
is the inverse, then, if H(o) then P(o)?

interesting post by token. i guess i too have always assumed that NYU was an obvious major entertainment market. i know theres a lot of record companies there. why wouldnt it be comparable to LA? a lot of music gets made in NYC.
