Studying for the LSAT / June 08 Sclae?
« on: June 16, 2008, 06:28:59 PM »
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?

Studying for the LSAT / LG section on preptest 6
« on: June 13, 2008, 05:07:01 PM »
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.

Today I sat down to do this preptest and section 1, lg, was so hard I don't know what is up? Has anyone else taken this test?

I don't know if I am burnt out or something, but I stopped at question 17 and I only had about 7 right. Never had this happen to me.

Studying for the LSAT / Dec 06 LG section
« on: June 11, 2008, 07:52:26 PM »
I am looking at the 3rd game numbers 11-15.

I understand pretty much all the questions with the exception of 14 and 15.

In the game, the only relationship between rock classic (r) and new composition (n) is that r is always preceded by an n. However, there is no relationship that it my be r n r n r n throughout the whole game.

I know that slot 5 6 and 7 are as follows n r n with Z being 6 and 5 and 7 either being v or x.

14.

I don't understand how you can arrive to any of the anwers. If D is correct, one has to assume the following:


n r n r   n   r   n

T W Y S  v/x  Z  x/v

Studying for the LSAT / Preptest 19, section 1
« on: June 05, 2008, 04:31:58 PM »
Okay, I just did this section and I got 18 right. Considering that I missed an entire game because I did not understand how to even set it up.

The second game which is about a theater company and is questions 8-12, I have no clue what is going on here nor how to set it up.

I don't get when they say, "In a theater company four two-day workshops" Does this mean 8 days when they are only saying from M-F? Don't get that. Or, is it the fact that they are compressing four two-day workshops to 5 days, make it at least 1 a day with a maximum of two a day, which would be sufficient enough to hold 8?


What I did was the following:

L, L, P, P, R, R, S, S

Monday    Tuesday   Wednesday   Thursday   Friday


------    -------   ---------   -------   -------



------    -------   ---------   -------   -------


However, I do not understand the rules and think they are to little. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Dec 01 sec 2 LG # 18

It is said that people should accept themselves as
they are instead of being dissatisfied with their own
abilities. But this is clearly a bad principle if the
goal is a society whose citizens are genuinely
happy, for no one can be genuinely happy if he or
she is not pursuing personal excellence and is
unwilling to undergo personal change of any kind.

I picked A, but even then, I am having a hard time seeing this questions. B is the correct answer. Can someone explain this one to me? Thanks in advance.

Studying for the LSAT / Method of Reasoning questions
« on: May 07, 2008, 07:03:35 PM »
For some reason, I am having problems with this type of quesion. Nevertheless, the one thing I want help with is how to identify the main conclusion.

I know how to identify conclusions but I cannot differentiate between the subsidiary ones and the main one. How do I do this?

Studying for the LSAT / Principle questions help
« on: April 30, 2008, 10:16:34 AM »


John's astronomical system is superior to Bob's and was so at the time it was proposed, even though at that time all observational evidence was equally consistent with both theories. Bob believed that the stars revolved around the earth at great speeds. This struck John as unlikely; he correctly though that a simpler theory is that the earth rotates on its axis.

The argument most closely conforms to which one of the following principles?


D) Other things being equal, the more complex of two competing theories is the inferior theory.

E) Other things being equal, the simpler of two competign theories is the more scientifically important theory.

I picked E and it is D. I am trying to figure out why. The only thing I can think of is the difference between "inferior theory" and "scientifically important." The fact that there is no mention about scientifically important in the stimulus would mean that E is wrong? Not sure if this is a correct assesment.
