I know a most statement is irreversible but can we make the following inference from a most statement:

If A Most B

So B Some A

December 1991 Game in TM HW Lesson #7 page 72

I really didn't know how to set up this game. I was surprised that i just got 2X out of the 6 questions. I thought i would get all wrong. Didn't really know why i picked the right answers, they just felt right.

Anyways here is the game, i will appreciate if anyone can set up this game for me. Thanks.

At an automobile exhibition, cars are displayed on each floor of a three floor building. On each floor the cars are either all family cars or all sports cars, either all new or all used, either all production models or all research models. The following conditions apply to the exhibition:

If the exhibition includes both family cars and sports cars, then each family car is displayed on a lower-numbered floor than any sports car.
The exhibition includes no used research models.
The exhibition includes no research models that are sports cars.
There are new cars on floor 1.
There are used cars on floor 3.

Studying for the LSAT / Question about LSAC GPA
« on: July 22, 2005, 01:38:52 PM »
Quick questions. Which GPA do law schools look at when deciding on admissions: is it your undergrad GPA or the LSAC GPA?

Can the LSAC GPA give you a boost if your school uses the following scaling: A,A-,B,B+,B- etc etc.


Just did my first diag today after 1 whole month of self prep (i did not use the bibles). The following was my break up when i was doing timed section BEFORE THE TEST:

LR- 5-6 wrong
LR- 5-6 wrong
LG- 7-8 wrong
RC- 5-6 wrong

But today on my first diag i got 13 wrong on my first LR, 12 on the second LR, 11 wrong on RC and 10 wrong on LG. I feel really low at this moment. According to the timed sections i thought i was doing pretty good. But now i just seem soooo lost. The real thing felt like a roller coaster and i made such silly mistakes. I'll be starting TM next week so hope that helps. But its a pity that even after 1 month of prep this is a result  :-[

Is there anyone else out there who was in the same situation as me ???? I am still hoping to get a 170...but after this first diag i am not so sure.

Since we dont have an experimental section in the prep tests when we are practicing at home when do you guys take a break and for how long? In the actual LSAT the break is usually 10-15 minutes after Section 3.

Just called to see who is the instructor for my NYC TM class. They said it is Sean Murphy. Anyone know this guy? Is he good? On their website this is what they say about him:

B.A. Rutgers University
M.A. University of California-Berkeley
LSAT Score: 175

By the way the class size is 29. And this is NYC.

I read in some LSAT Prep book that the LR questions of the LSAT are constructed in a user friendly manner i.e. one can answer these questions with minimal diagramming. I for one am not a supporter of this. I am really used to making big diagrams and using a lot of paper for these questions which i know is not right as i wont be getting that much space in the exam.

How do you guys prepare for the the LR section in these terms? I am one of those people who makes a hell lotta errors if i draw something really tiny. Well i would appreciate if you could give me some tips. Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Help me with this LG statement
« on: July 12, 2005, 09:39:26 AM »
This statement is picked up from a LG question of the LSAT. Can someone explain as to what it is trying to say.

Each table has at least two sponsors seated to it, and each sponsor is seated at exactly one table.

Now i understand the first part, i.e. "Each table has at least two sponsors seated to it", but cant seem to get the second part of the statement.


I was just going over some of the older posts on the topic of reading comprehension and stumbled over this website:

The poster claimed that it is good for RC practice. I clicked on the link and read a few articles. I must say that this website does have dense material similar to the LSAT and may be of great help.

Just wanted everyone to know about this. What do you guys think? Can this really help you prepare for the RC section. Any comments will be appreciated.
