LR parrallel reasoning questions question...
« on: September 14, 2007, 08:52:47 AM »
Can anyone familiar with the PS system for attacking these questions help me?  On the "Premise Test" method, can anyone give me a list of the words that are acceptable to use on the premise test?

I know the obvious ones... some, all, not all, none, most, always, some are not, never...
any others?

...and on the "Double the Conclusion" method all I'm trying to do is find a repeat of strong words in the conclusion?  Like never, always, and what else?

Thanks.

Thanks, I'm aware of the other three techniques but I always go with the premise test first, if possible, on these because they are a real time suck for me otherwise.  Thats why I just wanted to make sure I had all the potntial words in my head.  This is my first line of attack.  Rule of thumb for me is avoid reading the LR question thats longer than the typical RC passage.  If I cant solve it with the premise test I'm probably skipping it and coming back.
