BJS wrote:Holy shit the mirrors passage. I'm not a spatial or a science person at all, so trying to figure out what the hell was going on was pretty absurd. Other than that, the passages weren't inherently difficult, but I struggled with the questions. I struggled to get a definite answer on most of them and instead went with what seemed like the best answer. In reviewing the LG, two of the ones I missed were suspension questions. I definitely shouldn't have missed them. The third one I ran out of time and picked the one that worked the best in the thirty seconds I had. Still, 3 questions missed on LG is reprehensible.


Yeah I went -2 on LG, one because I misread the question COMPLETELY and another one (THE FIRST QUESTION) because I misbubbled. :evil:

If it's okay with you guys I'm just going to chalk this up to being, sick, tired, drugged out and it being my first PT in 2 weeks. Just because we're a week away and I can't really deal with dat sting of defeat at the moment.

Can someone explain the LR2 principle application question about the library books? It felt like the Cops one all over again.

ETA: in 71

I had bad flashbacks to the cops question when I hit this one. In B, some of Kessler's overdue books (at least one - the novel) aren't children's books and he has been fined for overdue books before. This satisfies the sufficient condition. What did you select?

Also, having two LG sections back-to-back, then break, then an LG section (as a result of two LG experimentals) was pretty brutal.

ETA: while we're on the topic, any help on LR2 Q23 (doctors and malpractice) and Q20 (psychic abilities)?

Damnit I don't have my book with me at the moment. But I think I probably fell into some sort of dumb trap.

That stupid psychic Q really pissed me off 2 there were sum good trap answers on the second LR apparently (I chose A, again maybe you didn't) but the answer is not A bc the conclusion is not general only about friends and family and I mean the obvs if the conclusion isn't general then the flaw is overvaluing a trait (telepathy) and hence B gets at that flaw

Yea I went with A. Narrowed it down to A and B, which both seemed like accurate answers. Went with A because it seemed like that was most likely LSAT critique. You're right though, he's only saying that it's *possible* so it wouldn't matter whether the sample was small.

Stop answering questions when the 30 second warning is given and just bubble.

Was the right answer the one that was like "THERE ARE OBVIOUSLY OTHER BETTER EXPLANATIONS?

Also re: mirrors - the questions were not terrible but the passage was like "WHOA MAN MIRRORS HOW DO THEY WORK???"

That was an f'ing pretty tough Q IMHO I was like u had it between B and A and confidently chose A then just got slapped in the face when I graded it was like whoa

hahahah sorry about the ALL CAPS I'm just feeling a lot of feelings right now.

And yes I picked the right one for the psychic question but I was looking at it like "why are you being so rude, LSAC? This language feels very harsh!"

I mean I usually finish LR around the 31 or 32 mark so if I'm still workin w 30 seconds left sumthin is not right and if I still have to bubble everything in I might just sweat myself into oblivion

In LR1 I thought Q12 (Rocky Mountains) and Q15 (Vitamins) were difficult and outside the norms of LR, although I got both right.
