Does anyone know of a good resource for RC explanations? I mean, does this exist?

I just got one wrong in blind review (PT65, Q13), and I (obviously) don't understand why.

I HATE MISSING QUESTIONS UNTIMED

Why not? I am.

I'm just saying…most colleges due to have classes, so you really don't have a day off even if you don't work. :wink:

Boris,

You still have time to improve. No giving up allowed.

Also, there is something about that word "write" in the context that is used-it just irks me hahah What happened to "sit" for the test?

Have you looked at Manhattan LSAT forums? Those can be hit or miss for me, as some people do a good job with explanations and some don't really make sense to me, but...it's worth a look.

Tip-toe'ing the outing line


i guess if someone wants to look up all the work colleges still in america, then look up the academic calendars, and assuming no two work colleges have the same academic calendar, they could find which college i went to

Is the "write" thing Canadian? A Canadian I knew would say that, but he was pretty ... concrete, so.

Wait, is that what this thread is for? :lol:

SPOILER ALERT wrote: It was PT65, passage 2, question 13. I chose D because I thought the problem of distinguishing essential from non-essential items became, at least, more difficult over time for archivists due to the sheer increase in volume of information. I see now that D is (sort of) contradicted by the passage in lines 45-48, where it says that popularity was a factor in deciding whether works were preserved, so it was an issue.

I eliminated E, the correct answer, because I decided that it was out of scope. I still think it's out of scope, but I guess this is an inference question, so anything goes?

Just wondering - Are there any trends in the type of experimental section given on test day?

As always, thanks LLH. Really don't know how some of you guys with full-time jobs, families, and all the other miscellaneous stuff do it. I have a little over a part-time job and a little overwhelming SO, so when i have a day where I just don't study i feel like all my gains go down the drain. However, I will persevere for the time being.

Also, I am Canadian, but i'm also running on two hours of sleep so It could be a mix of a cultural choice of phrasing, and a brain-dead choice of wording

:mrgreen:

Does this mean your SO is overwhelmingly petite, or just slightly overwhelming?


hahahaha okay okay guys, i get it, my lack of sleep is interfering with the appropriate grammar etiquette required in this thread. I'll do my best to correct it for tomorrow, please don't lose hope just yet. And to answer your question, she is slightly overwhelming (and far from petite)

love this thread
