Sorry 9:15, I had to work late

A music store carries exactly ten types of CDs -both new and used of each of jazz, opera,pop, rap, and soul.  The store is having a sale on some of these types of CDs. The following conditions must apply:

Used pop is on sale. new opera is not.
If both types of pop are on sale, then all soul is
If both types of jazz are on sale, then no rap is.
if neither type of jazz is on sale, then new pop is.
If either type of rap is on sale, then no soul is.

Thanks very much THalky!  I'm gonna give diagramming this a shot.  It looks like a female dog, but maybe it's not that bad once you get into it...

I can't do diagrams that deal with X and/or check marks.  I just wrote out all the rules.

Thats not X or check marks...
 You would put S or NS... (sale or no sale)

OMG that would be even worse... then I'd be like "wait, NS means new soul... or wait.. not for sale?"

Not having done the questions, but wrote out the rule, but I would've done this like the birds in the forest grouping game.  Just make two columns, for this one Sale and Not for Sale, and I did my rules like JN (new jazz), RU, used rap, etc.  Then you could run down the rules and pick out what can and can't be there.

This was very complicated, and I hope nothing this complex is in our test.

It was pretty bad, but I got a little prep from this board yesterday so when I got t it I was like "OK, pay attention and go slow" so I kicked it's ass.  Thanks guys, too bad you won't be prepping me for monday ;)
