That Q was bs I don't want to revisit too much at the moment but I glanced at the manhattan forum n it said sumthin bout how A didn't say overdue just that he had some out

Edit: I assumed u chose A maybe not if u didn't my mostly not useful is totally irrelevant

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)?

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.

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

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.

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!"

Yeah idk that second LR idk I'm just very upset by it very hurt on a deep level also re the ice cream Q yeah that one was kinda weird also the PF q on the first LR #14 I think was kinda weird
