Thanks for bringing us back on topic Water.

ETA: Wouldn't wanna get lounged before the test even happens.


Yeah, wasn't the subtlest attempt, but whatever works...or doesn't. I guess we'll see.

hit meh, Ill try to help (sorry I don't like when people fight... it brings the arbitrator out of me :P)
just make sure you give spoiler alerts if you go into answer choices and such


Absolutely, thanks for the heads up. And for trying to contribute to keeping the peace (that makes two of us arbitrators). At this point I'm still gonna search around because I'm sure my questions have been explained to death somewhere, but I'll be sure to do that if it comes to it.

This thread is in danger of getting lounged.

Anyways,

What was your last PT?


Mine was PT32, so I was surprised that I struggled as much as I did, especially with RC. But shit happens...now just to go over every wrong question in excruciating detail until I understand all of them :D

yeah I hear ya, RC is rough. Velocity has some video explanations(they actually start at PT32) the free ones aren't too detailed but they are nice to watch and then theres always manhattan forums which can be of some help

30's have some weird RC passages.

If you care to hear my advice on RC here it is-you need to find what works for you as cliche as that sounds. My RC strategy is not the one of Manhattan, Powerscore, Velocity etc. Instead its a mixture of all of those…You need to test different "ways", and stick the one that works for you.

Yeah, those are better than nothing. For me, my problem with RC is when I cannot decipher the structure of a dense passage (most likely humanities). If I'm good with knowing the structure of a passage, I'll usually go 100% or miss a Q. I got fairly lucky today on my first 20 RC section, understood 3 of the passages well enough and bombed the humanities one. ughhh

LLH has a serious problem playing a victim. If you can't even handle a simple message board, I can't imagine how you would handle the politics of a workplace. Wait yes I do, you'll be off on your own.

ETA: don't feel like quoting but in reference to being said in humorous way... I kind of read it like Whaaaa? myself, had little uhhhhhhhhh sarcasm tone to it, felt plain and therefore hard to grasp (yes I see my own flaws there)
but lets just play nice, we don't poke fun ITT even jokingly so be good

What was the purpose of this post? You don't know me, so please refrain from placing judgment. To assume that I somehow take to heart whats being said on here is a poor assumption. Trust me.

So now I'm writing on my notes about why an answer choice of mine was wrong, "basically all the reasons". Somehow I picked the one answer that broke like three rules of the game. :? Really kicking some LSAT ass tonight. Is anyone else having a really terrible PT kind of day or is everyone else having better luck here?

In addition to my totally transparent topic change attempt (though also completely authentic anecdote), please can we at least move these heated discussions from this thread into PMs? That is, if they need to continue at all?

What does that have to do with how I view this forum when it comes to me personally. Others posters do come here to post, and take whats being said to them seriously. You wouldn't want to come on here and be attacked either, so when I address that someone is being rude-yeah, its probably because you are. Its different when you are addressing other posters that understand your humor-where you are coming from. As far as I'm concerned trust me I won't be losing sleep over anyone's comments on this forum regardless how rude they are.
