parallel the reasoning

Postby northwood » Fri May 21, 2010 11:25 pm

any ideas on how to best solve parallel-the-reasoning questions on the logical reasoning ( arguments) section? I am currently just choosing my "educated guess" answer for them, but would like to at least try to figure them out. ( i know they are very time consuming, and only show up on one or 2 questions, but still would like to konw the way to solve these problems)

ps. who agrees that after the june lsat, it should be mandatory to do absolutely nothing on june 8th, unless it is fun and enjoyable ( not work related)

Once you get the hang of them, parallel reasoning questions are fairly easy to tackle in a systematic way. Make sure you understand the conclusion as precisely as possibly, taking into account conditional statements, modifier words like "most vs. every", etc. Match the conclusion in the stimulus with the answer choices, and you can usually knock out 2-3 answer choices. Then scrutinize the remaining the contender choices for premise wording, just as you did with the conclusion.
