Yup...it kicks ass. I read it before the LR bible and I think it helped.

There's some great advice on this thread. I'd also like to recommend picking up the book "A Rulebook for Arguments." It's brief, concise, and in the first 30-40 pages, it lays out some of the basic rules to follow in argumentation.

The logic on the LSAT is so basic. You don't a separate book to learn it. Consider TLS your free logic teacher.

That's something Bender would actually say, lol, with the emphasis on "so" even, in the imaginary scenario that he took the LSAT. Immediately after this statement, he would open up his LSAT score to find a score just good enough to get him into Cooley.

Excellent show, got the DVD set. But I think Bender could do better than Cooley

Probably not necessary if you have the Bibles.

Hey guys. Did not want to flood the boards with another thread, so i'll just ask here: Where can I find the diagnostic test/ lsat prep test so I can see what my score would be before I start some serious study? Thanks TSL

Check out the stuff here: http://www.lsac.org/jd/LSAT/preparing-for-LSAT.asp

There's a free test you can download and a whole bunch more tests you can buy, for starters. There are plenty of other sources of real LSAT questions, too, but the free test is the place to start, probably.

Anyone know why LSAC keeps changing this address to the free LSAT?

Here are my top three bits of advice.

1) Read all different kinds of information. I would read The Economist, The Smithsonian, and Scientific American, daily. I think this is what helped the most, and reading should be a top priority. You can re-wire the neurons in your brain to better handle written words if you read all the time. Most people's brains are probably set in "T.V. Mode" and unfortunately there is no video section on the LSAT. Turn off the television, start reading dense material, this will help you across the board not just on the reading comprehension section.

2) Pick up a good book on INFORMAL logic. I hear people saying that formal logic important, believe me, for this test INFORMAL logic is actually what you want to study. I think people are confusing the two. I am particularly fond of "Informal Logic: A handbook for critical argument" by Douglas N. Walton.

3) When you are studying, figure out why each answer choice was wrong, as well as why the correct one was in fact correct. This is kind of common sense but the tediousness of doing this causes it to be often ignored.

Cheers


Thank you, I agree my brain is probably messed up in the TV/Movie mode since January.........sigh......
