strategies for completing parallel flaw questions quickly?

Postby rachue » Tue Sep 13, 2011 7:41 pm

Hello,

I noticed that it takes me quite awhile to go through parallel flaw questions, since it's essentially like going through 6 different stimuli. My general strategy is to evaluate the stimulus, diagram it, and then go through each answer. It probably takes me at least two minutes, which is just too long if I want to be able to finish the rest of the questions. Has anyone figured out a good strategy for these?

Thanks in advance.

Try this and see how it works:

First look for conclusion mismatches. (different modifier, different type of statement - for example, is the conclusion a conditional relationship, relative size, simple statement, etc.)

Then look for premise mismatches.

Then look for the flaw.
