Tip for LSAT Day

Just FYI. I know the article says they "don't recommend it for the LSAT," but you can probably just ignore that.

The article doesn't say that, it says it doesn't recommend getting hammered before the LSAT. I saw this yesterday and it's really interesting, though I don't think I'll incorporate it into my studies.

Half a beer beforehand might not have hurt me, in retrospect. I wouldn't recommend this, all the same.

Are we really giving validity to a study that tested a mere 40 people? How many millions of unaccounted variables could have contributed to the results? Not reliable, and actually kind of reckless publishing something like this (not you, but MSN.) I'll wait for an RCT before I buy any brew.

Here's a link to the actual study. (LinkRemoved)

Friends of logic will find ample flaws in their methodology. Frankly, I'm surprised it made it into a quasi-reputable journal.

Yes, let's all take this very seriously.
