It is fun, allright :) But the question is  how to reason correctly if this type of questions will be on the real test?

Btw, nathaniel, I was just like you.  I chose B, then completely questioned myself because zpops ruled it out.  Such power we've completely given to zpops  ;).  I better develop more confidence before I actually go to school.  I'll get eaten alive at NYU at this rate...

And yes, I hate this question too.

LOLOL!  I am the great and powerful Zpops!  I am always right about LSAT questions.  Just ignore the man behind that curtain there who did get 7 questions wrong on the real test, and plenty before then  ;D

But confidence is the greatest tool a lawyer has.  Its all about convincing the jurors or the judge that you're right, regardless of what the facts actually are.  We're all a bunch of sophists in training, and we'd be put to death in Athens for "making the stronger argument seem like the weaker".   ;)

I skipped more than a couple questions.  You shoulda seen me fill in those little circles for the games.
One set of questions completely confused me.  I took the advice of the book.  Marked random answers for that part and used the saved time to do better on the others.  But wait.  I got a 155.

Needed a different book....

Hey ZPOPS, just out of curiosity, can you give a breakdown by section on the questions you missed?

I'll PM it to you.  I think posting that would cross the line between helping and bragging. . .
