I just took preptest 22 (June 97) and completely ACED the reading section.. never happened before. I thought I would score at LEAST 168 or so, but after scoring the next three sections my score added up to 165... WHAT GIVES?? LR damnit! I missed a total of 14. Even sadder is that I thought I did well while taking those sections. Someone in another thread suggested to write out the full reason why a certain choice is correct, so that simple mistakes are never made again. Still, there are always 1 or 2 that I have NO IDEA why a certain answer is superior to the one I chose and THATS what pisses me off about this.. Holla
you missed 14 and you scored a 165? that doesnt make sense. it sounds closer to being a 167...but maybe that was a particularly easy year.

My biggest thing in LR tends to be getting tripped up with conditional reasoning and the sufficient/necessary thing. I know the concepts backwards and forwards, and am fine applying it in LG, but sometimes I spend time setting up the sufficient/necessary/logic conditions in LR and it ends up that I don't have to. Or questions where you really *should* set it up, I get tripped up in the wording.These types of questions seem to be not as prevalent in the new tests, I don't think, but then again, I could just not be seeing where logical reasoning comes into play. Anyone else get tripped up like this?
you do realize that it's near impossible to tell when you're joking and when you're being serious, right?Quote from: guyutegirl (Jew-Lo) on June 03, 2004, 04:23:39 PMI like all sections of the LSAT. not only is the content interesting, but it keeps my mental skills sharp and refined.
