Least favorite LR question type?

Postby Typhoon24 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 12:56 am

Right now, and for the next couple of months, I will be in process of mercilessly drilling LR and LG questions by type for the June LSAT. Long story short, which question type on LR caused you the most grief? (either it takes too long to finish *cough parallel reasoning or any EXCEPT question*, or it could be an accuracy issue.)

Feel free to vent and let out all your drilling frustrations here, I'd love to see that I'm not the only one who is suffering or has suffered.

That sounds like a plan to me. Everyone from TLS should just meet and hold a mass LSAT book burning.

Parallel reasoning. Ugh. Also, strangely, weaken questions.

Parallel reasoning, by far. EXCEPT just compounds the misery.

Definitely parallel reasoning. Usually I can get them but I end up wasting time making awful diagrams. I've been dreading starting the Cambridge PR packets- so maybe I'll start them tomorrow.

I'm about 150 questions in to "Most Strongly Support" and I hate it so much.....so much.

I find parallel reasoning to be all right, just kinda time consuming. I just skim through its structure. and try and find words like "some" or "can not" and usually one of the answers that uses synonymous words ends up being the right answer.

I am suprised no one has said sufficient assumption or flaw in reasoning questions. Flaw questions are sometimes made unreasonably difficult because of the way the answer choices are constructed and sufficient questions can really blow.

Convoluted conditional inference questions.

Second is flaw but that may soon be a favorite now that I'm being taught to think of flaw questions as assumptions.

Flaw is the friggin worst. It's like here let me give you this really stupid passage and then pick from all these verbose, pretentious answer choices.

Flaws are one of my best. Paralleled reasoning sucks though.

Mine is probably principle (specifically, "state the principle ...", though the other type is almost a worse time waster than parallel). Hate those. Have yet to read any particularly good advice for tackling them.

Parallel Reasoning and Flaw in the Reasoning are equally intolerable. Just keep drilling them repeatedly and they get easier.

Parallel Flaw/Reasoning. Not that they difficult, they are usually pretty straight forward, just that my anxiety goes into panic mode when I'm nearing the end and I see that massive block of reading staring straight at me.
