Studying for the LSAT / Re: Reading Comprehension Main Point/Idea
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:13:03 PM »
MP questions used to be a tossup for me. I do, however, from time to time get them wrong and that happens becuase I did not pay attention. I have actually learned that MP questions are easy to handle when you are able to do a fact test. After reading the passage you should have an idea of what we are dealing with. Although sometimes the main idea is encompassed int he first paragraph, this is not true. As a matter of fact, more times than not, I would say that the main point is not in the first paragraph. The LSAT has passages that introduce the first paragraph as a background to what the issue at hand will be.

1. Do a fact test on the answers. Take a look at each answer and see. Although some will stay because it is still, you must ask yourself if that is what the author is talking about.

2. Read the entire passage. Particularly pay attenion to the first paragraph to see how it relates to the rest of the pssage

I see.

I guess no Dec 06 scale where 89 was a 170

Call me carzy but I can almost gaurantee that the scale is going to be brutal. I'm predicting a 93/100 for a 170.

Really? That is interesting. For some reason I think it will be generous. Maybe its wishful thinking.

I am beginning to wonder how the scale on this test is going to be. I don't think this was an easy test. Actually, it was, for me, somewhat difficult with the lsat RC passage being dense and one of the LG games being hard.

Any thoughts?

Don't know how I did. Last RC passage was harder than the rest and I got to it with 7 minutes left. Had to pretty much guess on the last questions.

LR is up in the air for me.

LG was okay with the exception of the 2nd game. Completely blanked on it.

Does anyone else feel that this test, in general, was a little hard? Possibility fo a nice curve?

Question 1-6

Petworld has exactly fourteen animals (three gerbils, three hamsters, three lizards, five snakes) that are kept in four separate cages (W, X, Y, Z) according to the following conditions:

Each cage contians eactly two, four or six animals.

Any cage containing a gerbil also contains at least one hamster; any cage containing a hamster also contains at least one gerbil.

Any cage containing a lizard also contains at least one snake; any cage containing a snake also contains at least one lizard.

Neither cage Y nor cage Z contains a gerbil.

Neither cage W nor cage X contains a lizard.

First game, do not understand it at all.

Got first question right, but don't see how I can get 2 right.

2. I have deduced the following:

W h h g  h/s

I can see the fact for this being a cage that hold 4 o 6 due to the rules. However, I don't know if it will be 4 or 6.

Automatically there is at least 1 gerbil in cage W. Then the question says, "...the number of gerbils in cage X is equal to the number of snakes in cage Y..."

Well, since there are exactly 3 gerbils in totals there can only be a maximum of 1 or two? How can the answer be 4?

Also, for game 2 (7-12) I cann't figure out how to arrive to the answer on 11 and 12.

There is no way that 12 is B. If anything it is D.

Well, one thing that helped me with RC, and I am no expert, was the advice that I read on this board. I stopped underlining. In doing that, I gave myself more time to read and understand. It really helped.

As for me, I don't know what I am going to do but I am going to take my last practice exam on Saturday. I wanted to take one today but instead I am going to do timed sections.
