You should def see if u can find some sort of pattern w the strengthen/weaken. Did u do all the drilling packets ?
I haven't done all the packets, but a lot of the question types i'm essentially 100% on so it wouldn't be worth it. I did 1's and 2's for Strengthen/Weaken, Flaw, and NA. Any suggestions for trying to find patterns in missed questions? I've looked through them, and nothing so far has jumped out at me.
What do u mean that u are essentially 100% on those Qs? Didn't u miss 6 combined on LR on the PT u took today?
LR constantly repeats itself. The same type of trap answers will show up again and again (such as premise boosters), the same type of flaws will show up again and again (causal, overvaluing a trait, etc). LSAC will use the same logic an correct answer choices for certain types of flaws (e.g. if it is a weaken Q, and the flaw is that the stimulus overvalues a trait, look for an answer choice that calls that trait into question/shows something else is at play).
Just one example: I know in the more recent tests a somewhat common strengthen answer choice is one that simply reinforces the premise of the argument (such as showing the premise holds in nearly identical circumstances. IMHO it's a pretty subtle strengthener and one that I initially had an issue w but I started recognizing it and now see it for what it is.
