I've been using a video by 7sage or EveryLSAT on my phone when I take the tests. They proctor the exam by timing it etc. It's actually been pretty helpful but they go fast in between sections, and I don't have time to switch my chronograph back to the starting point fast enough, lol.


Just have to train yourself to instantly reset watch when they call time. I'll either do that, or if I finish a section early, I go ahead and reset and prepare it for the next section before I review some of my iffy-answers

If you have no iffy answers then you'll be set, you can slowly set your watch back with 10 minutes left knowing you just crushed the last section in 25 minutes

Just woke up from a dream in which I walked out of the lsat in the second section because I forgot to bubble the first section. Also the second section was a new format, non experimental LR section in which all of the answer choices were on 4 pages in the beginning of the section. There were so many answer choices that they were labeled AAAA-ZZZZ. Also a bunch of people I knew were also taking the test and they judged me super hard for walking out.

Reviewing PT34 from last night and I havd a question on RC #13, the first question in the passage about vertical and horizontal gene aquisition. I really struggled to concentrate with this passage because my college roommate is getting his doctorate in genetics, so I mock him about punnett squares and he tells me crazy shit about how genetics actually works.

Why is #13 E? The passage says nothing about many biologists accepting the new evidence and research that shows genes can be inherrited horizontally. The only time a group of biologists is mentioned in the passage is in the first paragraph, when they reject Lamarck's ridiculous hypothesis and believe environmentally induced adaptations are not genetic. Is this that many=some BS? Because many, to me, indicates a large percentage or general group of people.

So, I've been doing really well on these Flaw questions. Like, I got two wrong on the level three, maybe a handful wrong total in a solid 130+ questions. Then last night I go to finish the packet and I quit after 16 questions because I'm tired. Go to grade, and - WTF - 6 wrong. That's more than a third.

I'm just going to blame it on all the muscles in our Tinychat last night. I had stars in my eyes.

What are the odds of an unusual game type in the logic games? Are you all prepping for this possibility? My focus has been on just getting really good at advanced linear/grouping games but if the test has a mapping game on it or something i'm gonna flip. That would be 3 weird games in a row(though circular reasoning games are a breeze).

I guess I should have realized that actual lsat questions on this thread are forbidden. I do have things to do and can't comb 339 pages of largely useless discussion. Forgive me

IDK if you've checked out manhattan at all but heres the explanation they give on their blog/forum thing
"The word many indicates "at least some." And it is true that many biologists no longer believe that "all genes are inherited vertically." In lines 51-58 the passage says that the evidence appears to show that some genes can be transmitted horizontally. If some genes are transmitted horizontally, then it's not true that all genes are transmitted vertically.

I know you're focused on the term "many biologists." Remember that this is actually a very weak way of referring to biologists. Two biologists no longer holding this view would be enough. And on line 57, the passage implies that these biologists have accepted the claim that some genes are transmitted horizontally.

(A) is on the wrong side of the argument. It appears that more biologists may be inclined to hold this belief.
(B) is on the wrong side of the argument. It appears that more biologists may be inclined to hold this belief.
(C) is not something biologists previously believed. The question is about what biologists "no longer" believe.
(D) is not mentioned in the passage. We know that some biologists believe this claim to be true, but not whether any believe this claim to be false."

This. Best feeling ever. I've been able to get myself to finish LR with 8-10 minutes every time. I reset my watch, take a breath, and begin the review
