Just curious to see how TM and BP differs, what's the general flow in terms of LR?
For my class, I'm starting off with Must be true/strong support-> mp/arguement structure->finally flaw/strengthen/weaken/assumptions.
We starting out with some formal logic and jumped into NA questions the first lesson. We also did one relative ordering game. For hw we have NA questions, formal logic drills, and some ordering/relative ordering games.
Honestly, I'm not super impressed thus far. I already know LG, but he rushed through one question and if I hadn't been familiar I think I'd be confused. And for NA I think he focused too much on predictions. I mean, predictions are important, but it was like he was saying you'll always without a doubt be able to predict the answer and that isn't true for harder questions. Plus, our instructor was 30 minutes late, but that was because of traffic.
ETA: I also don't like that the diag was given at 6:30pm and they gave us one of the harder PTs. I think it's all a marketing ploy to have us improve greatly by the last diag (which will probably be an easier one and it's at 10 am). That way we can all vouch we improved significantly. Also, I hate the trademarking of terms and the arbitrary assignment of numbers rather than calling a question by what Cambridge/LSAC/every other test prep classifies it as.
I've also been in a terrible mood this week, so maybe I'm being too critical
no excuse... its a job, hell if you were headed to the LSAT but were late cuz of traffic I don't think they'd be like "well hell can't do anything about traffic... sure hop on in, the test started but who cares"
And yeah that sounds like a marketing ploy a little, hopefully it does help still. If he goes too quickly over something or states something like you'll def be able to predict challenge it. have him slow down. you're the one paying money for it not him so have him go at your pace, not his...
Im being a bit critical so I must be in a terrible mood right?
