I need to do the preptest A, B, C LGs.

imo game 2 from B is the only game from the super prep tests thats substantially diff than other games ive seen throughout the lsat but B is just pretty hard in general with a -15 curve but there is also a circular game on B that could b helpful if you want to practice that type of game


Thank you for bringing this up. I definitely wouldn't have remembered to do those.

It's a little late in the game for superprep...

I mean any PT is a good PT but don't buy superprep; you're paying for the explanations basically.

I really enjoy the way Bill clothes his thoughtful commentary and occasionally elevated diction in textspeak. I see it as a kind of High Street/couture approach to language; there's a genius in the mixing. And some fairly august linguists even liken switching back and forth between textspeak and orthodox language to bilingualism. So in a way, by forcing us to toggle back and forth as readers, Bill is treating us to a more complicated experience with language.

^^ the rest of this essay could be an RC passage

However despite this apparent respect for language in the highest regard, Bill and others like him have encountered a high level of criticism. Those who see this language usage as an abomination can generally be seen as falling into two types. The first type is those who have a genetic predisposition forcing them to only be able to read sentences with proper punctuation. This is a very rare deformity and basically an anomaly. Therefore the focus should rely mainly on the second type: those with such a level of pretention that every utterance that comes out of their mouth must be bombastic in nature.

A recent study by Jerry B.

In the development of the Ur-Germanic language from which English and other continental languages evolved, a similar pattern of language use occurred, and Mr. Knowitall contends that the introduction of this pattern has helped spur the development of the English language as we know it today. Instead of seeing it as regressive (or worse, degenerate), we ought to embrace the wit and elegance that is packed in textspeak as a crucial step towards the future development of English.

then by all means go for it! except if you need to choose between the most recent ones and these, then I'd say take the most recent ones.

15. The passage utilizes a study by mr knowitall for which of the following reasons?
A) to provide support for the idea that billpackets textspeak is not useful to the overall meaning he is trying to communicate
B) To compare one idea to an analogous idea for which both have suffered attempts to discredit
C) to argue that one particular language usage at present is in part has been seen to be common formerly
D) to highlight the badassery of havin a last name "knowitall"
E) to silence the haters

16. It can be inferred from the passage that:

C) BillPackets would have faced similar disdain at the time of the Ur-Germanic language
D) Bill sometimes does not use proper punctuation
E) Those "bombastic in nature" never make errors in spelling, grammar, or punctuation
