• It wasn’t a specific question with an A-E or match answer, but an example with some categorized possible assumptions on page 271.

    My husband says I consume too much caffeine, but that is false.  I only drink one cup of coffee a day, and one cup of coffee is not too much caffeine for a person to consume daily…

  • Hey again,

    I’m really struggling with this whole required != important…

    for example, the coffee bit…

    I still don’t get why the required and important answer [she does not get her excess of caffeine through other means] is a better answer than [coffee is the only substance she consumes that contains caffeine]

    Wouldn’t the second answer, if negated, do far more to destroy the…Read More

  • I think it depends how you usually study.  If you can read and retain, I see no reason to take notes unless something is harder for you to grasp.

    Personally, I’ve been taking far more notes than I usually do.  It slows my reading down a bit which I think is important.

    I’d take the cold diagnostic when you have a chance.  Personally, I think it’d be fine to read a brief intro on LG, so…Read More

  • Awesome – thanks.  I appreciate your accessibility and helpfulness.  I will definitely advocate for LSAT trainer in other forums.  It’s really great to have you be so accessible, and it’s a great selling feature of the book [that I was completely unaware of at the time of purchase.]

    Towards the end of the first logic games cluster, the games have been pretty challenging.  I usually do…Read More

  • You probably have to give a little more info for help from some people, such as…

    • how much studying / prep time have you put into the LSAT so far? for this preparation?
    • is this score where you started or where did you start? have you scored higher?
    • what sections are you getting most of your questions wrong on? is it a specific question or game type?
    • what is your target score /…

  • Ok – understood.  I appreciate it.  I sort of meant to delete this, as I got to a page a bit later in the Trainer on that sort of explicitly stated what you have.

    I think the reason it sort of confused me is that it was the only “either or” in the drill, if I recall correctly, so it kind of stood out.

  • If she owns, she also owns either Q or R. (pg 180)

    Does either change or restrict the meaning of “or” here?

    The solution shows S -> Q or R; Q and R -> S

    Usually, S could cause Q, R, or Q&R. Does “either Q or E” restrict this to S causes Q or R but not Q&R?

    If the latter, wouldn’t the contra positive be QR OR Q & R -> S ?

    Basically, I’m wondering if either or on the LSAT basic…Read More

  • Wondering if it’d be smart to scenario this one, as the one elephant scenario basically fills out the board if I’m thinking of this correctly… If you have one elephant (can only have H or FG), you must have one monkey and all four rhinos.

     

  • Hey again… referring to pg. 140-142 and appreciate any and all help!

    Are we likely to see something like the 15/18 on the exam?  How would one approach this? Is there any inference that should have been made [but maybe not discussed in book] that due to the length something had to be first kind of deal?  I noticed some of the other solutions seemed like they could have gone farther […Read More

  • 1] & 2] Understood & appreciated.  I was just getting a bit worked up trying to go through it.

    3] Totally understood & appreciate the clarification.  From what you’ve said, it is a puzzle != piece type situation.  I didn’t interpret it as such, but I can totally see how what you’ve stated is the correct way to interpret it.  I just took salaries to be the plural of salary whereas sala…Read More

  • Sorry – I saw that you addressed this issue somewhat in a post or two down!

    It seems that they are two sides of the same coin.  I suppose the only other things I would still wonder is that : should I be getting hung up if my wording isn’t the same?  How about the matching drills?

    Finally, I am still bit curious about the wording on #12 from pg. 89.  I feel like I’d be fine on the te…Read More

  • Hey! New to forum… not sure if the best place to post this.

    I scored fairly high on my cold diagnostic in the RC/LR sections, so I have a generally good idea of like “hey, that sounds dubious” or “hey, that sounds wrong.”  The book seems to help me put a name to some of these things.  I’ve currently read and done the drills through the end of section six.  I find myself being fr…Read More
