RC Inference HELP

Postby LoveLife89 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 9:58 am

I have been studying for the LSAT for some time, but I am struggling with RC. More specifically, with inference questions. I don't know how I should be attacking these questions. Is there any method that is effective? Or maybe some of you have different ideas and I could try to see if it will work for me. I am taking the June LSAT, so it is imperative that I learn an effective method, immediately!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

'Inference' is a technical term. I read it as 'must* be true'

I suppose most RC questions can be thought of as some kind of "inference" question; it's all about you can ascertain from the passage, and from that passage only. Try pre-phrasing your answers, as in, try to formulate an answer for the question BEFORE even looking at the answer choices. This is a tip from Velocity and I love it: try covering the answers with a post-it and writing your response on it, then go back and find the answer that matches yours. It's not the fastest method at first, but speed isn't your goal at this point, and it will come naturally with practice. Eventually, you should read a question and quickly know what the answer should tell you.

HTH.

Thanks a lot! That's actually a great method. I used to do that for LR until I was able to master the questions without that technique. But, I've never thought to do that with RC. I will definitely do that for the next few days and will post back to let you know!!
