Studying for the LSAT / Do ADCOMS even look at the scale?
« on: June 25, 2005, 07:39:59 PM »
Do they even look at the scale and how many you actually missed or do they put their trust completely in LSAC to eliminate variations between tests?

Studying for the LSAT / Is this the hardest scale ever?

I have never seen -9 for a 170 before

Studying for the LSAT / Didnt it say a time for monday?
« on: June 24, 2005, 04:52:56 PM »
I remember a part of LSAC site saying like 10:30am on monday.. but i cant seem to find it anymore... was i imagining this?

I am hoping one or two of them are thrown out.. but if no one brought it to their attention then i dont see it likely

I have studied the answer choices and this looks like a perfect candidate for a question that should be thrown out.

What is the procedure for notifying LSAC and has anyone done this yet?

Those of you that have taken a ton of these.. how do you feel the scale will be for this june's test?

i think it will be a pretty hard (unforgiving scale) because the games section was pretty easy

Sarah: Our regulations for staff review are vague and thus difficult to interpret. For instance, the regulations state that a staff member who is performing unsatisfactorily will face dismissal, but they fail to define unsatisfactory performance. Thus, some staff may be dismissed merely because their personal views conflict with those of their superiors.

Which one of the following generalizations, if applicable to Sarah's company, most helps to justify her reasoning?

A) Performance that falls only somewhat below expectations results in disciplinary measures short of dismissal.

B) Interpreting regulations is a prerogative that belongs solely to supervisors.

C) A vague regulation can be used to make those subject to it answer for their performance

D) A vague regulation can be used to keep those subject to it in subordinate positions.

E) Employees usually consider specific regulations to be fairer than vague regulations.

Answer is B... why?  ???

The first bicycle, the Draisienne, was invented in 1817. A brief fad ensued, after which bicycles practically disappeared until the 1860s. Why was this? New technology is accepted only when it coheres with the values of a scoeity. Hence some change in values must have occured between 1817 and the 1860s.

The reasoning in the argument is flawed because the argument

E) ignores, without giving justification, alternative possible explanations of the initial failures of bicycles.

I have a problem with the word initial in this (the correct) answer choice. Wouldn't the fact that a brief fad ensued show that there was no initial failure, but rather initial success followed by failure?  ???

Studying for the LSAT / October 2004 curve
« on: June 01, 2005, 05:19:41 PM »
Anyone else shocked that october 2004 had such an unforgiving curve? I missed the most questions on this test than most of the previous tests and thought it was among the hardest in recent times!

Why is the curve so unforgiving? Did most people find this test easy? Or is it just any test with an easier games section will automatically have a real tight curve?   ???

In the Hartshorn Building, most but not all of the third-floor offices are larger than any office on the second floor. The fourth-floor offices are all larger than any office on the second-floor. However, all the second-floor offices are larger than any office on the first floor.

If the statements above are true, which one of the following must also be true?

Answer is:
D) Some third-floor offices are not as large as the smallest fouth-floor office

How would you guys attack this problem? Do you diagram it, if so how?
