5 LSAT words everyday

Postby cany » Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:16 pm

I am not sure how helpful this thread would be to the majority to TLS aspirants but I think some may agree with me on the struggle with vocabulary.While preparing for LSAT,I realized that its not enough that you have a general idea of the word/phrase to answer a question or decode the passage.The exact meaning validates the accuracy in understanding.Hope this thread makes the words sink in more.

Suggestions welcomed!!
