Studying for the LSAT / Re: October LSAT thread (T-Minus 5 Days)

Thank you Comotellamas...thank you.

I should mention that I will be pulling the tube socks just north of my knees, though...so - it's not exactly the same.

That's so weird!  "Tino" is wearing the same exact outfit that I put together for Saturday... Seriously, it's already laid out on the couch - my wife ironed the shorts and everything....

For my last few timed PTs I added a 5th section and a bubble sheet and I'll keep that up until my last timed PT.  I took a timed pt this morning - pt 52.  I'm doing 53 on Tuesday and 54 on Thursday.

I think I worked out some kinks for RC, which is good because I only score below what I'd like when I eat it on RC - which has been twice in the last couple of weeks.

Friday I'll get up early to promote a good night's sleep (maybe a bit of golf).  If a get some sleep Friday, confidence will be high.

Ah yes, the classic Canada v. US debate. We had to give you back Detroit (still glad?) and we burnt down the 'white house' so let's just be friends, shall we? It's funny, I definitely don't agree with everything that Thales says but assumptions like Lindbergh's about the 'Little Brother' complex are so funny, it's such a a classic American myth 'everyone else wants to be us or just like us, they just don't realize it yet'. Of course, not all Americans subscribe to this myth, but it has definitely been present in American foreign policy for the past 100 years or so. If anything, I find the differences break down regionally (ie people from WA state and those from southern BC will have similar attitudes and opinions and those from the Windsor-Detroit are similar, though different from people from western Canada/US).

The sad thing is that I read Meggo's post (quoted above) and the thought that instantly popped into my head was, "If the above is true then which of the following must also be true?..."   :P

Can someone explain why (D) is a better answer than (A)? Thanks so much....kind of stressing over the October test.

You'll be happy to know that "D" is NOT better than "A" - "A" is the credited response... ;D

I'm going to eat a preptest.  That way I will gain its strength. 

I'm going to listen to William Tell Overture while watching videos of car crashes.

I'm going to score 180.

Eating a preptest?!  You just made my watch list on LSN!  Can't wait to see that 180, brother!

I'm far from a guru, but I did manage to get that question correct...

If offering an explanation on LSD crosses any lines, than I apologize and please delete.

Briefly...

E is correct because the percentage of people who would like to join the party is under 30% (it's 26%), as is the number of people who would donate to it (it's 16%).  The argument is vulnerable to criticism because the journalist assumes that the 16% is totally accounted for within the 26%.  If these are two entirely separate groups of people, or even mostly separate, than the number of people supporting the education party is over the necessary 30%, making it likely to be viable in the long run, thus calling into question the conclusion...

B contradicts the facts in the stimulus.  There is "overwhelming historical evidence" for the need for the 30%.

I hope this helps...
