Reading Question Stem First in LR Questions

Postby cantthinkofgoodname » Fri Jul 19, 2013 4:55 pm

Hello all,

So no doubt this is a topic that has been asked and discussed before, but I'm wondering about people's thoughts (especially high LSAT scorers) on reading the stimulus first or reading the question stem first in the Logical Reasoning section.

I'm going through the Powerscore LRB right now and, as anyone who reads it knows, Powerscore strongly advocates basically reading the question in order (i.e. reading the stimulus before the question stem).

I'm just wondering what some thoughts are on reading the stem first. Have people had success with this? or is it not a good idea?

Thanks

Personally I read the stimulus first. I usually know what's coming next by the end anyway, but I've found if I read the question stem first sometimes I end up with tunnel vision, looking for an assumption or whatever instead of taking in the whole argument and processing it.
