rule equivalency questions

Postby Manhattan LSAT Noah » Fri May 06, 2011 2:05 pm

If anyone is struggling with the new q's that ask you to ID an equivalent rule. Mike just wrote a piece on them. Be sure to read the spoiler alert, as we discuss specific games in depth. http://www.manhattanlsat.com/equivalent-rule.cfm

Noah,
I cannot believe you are giving this away for free! THANKS so much. It is VERY helpful. Where could I find other such links to other MLSAT articles?

That 100% sounds like I paid you to say that.

That's the first white paper we've written, but there are samples chapters of the books in the store. Also, there are some juicy blog posts that have some real depth (look for ones that Dan, Mike or Aileen wrote - there's one on Negating Assumptions, one on Diagnosing a student's problem, and one on RC)

I've read the first page and stopped because I haven't done PT57-62 and didn't want to spoil them, but thank you for making this available. I'll be reading it closer to test day.

Yep, but I am looking for a link to the "juicy blog posts that have some real depth (look for ones that Dan, Mike or Aileen wrote - there's one on Negating Assumptions, one on Diagnosing a student's problem, and one on RC)" that Noah mentioned. I went to the MLSAT website, but could not find these blog posts.

I enjoyed the paper and it will certainly be helpful for a number of test takers.

Just did 58. Thankfully, TCR was basically a paraphrase of an inference I'd come up with while doing the other Qs, so it was an easy one for me. I'm looking forward to seeing how I do on 59, since you say that one's harder.

I think it's a recent addition. AFAIK it hasn't come up before LG57.

PT57 is definitely an infamous PT. I've only heard bad stuff about it. Dinosaur LG, rule equivalency LG, Willa Cather RC, ...

Sure - I'll put them together next week. Though since I believe you have our books, so you've probably heard most of the ideas before, with better formatting.
