I've heard the pre-Socratic ones are good though.

inverse effect on me, I really got into Camus and Jung (My teacher would bring up Jung a lot i know he isn't PHIL MASTER)

Camus is the bae. He is the one exception.

Idk about Jung. If he's anything like Freud then no.

I was under the impression that no one took Freud seriously these days.

I've heard the pre-Platonic ones are good though.

I've only taken political philosophy and I thought it was alright. never even took intro to philosophy but I did want to though

I don't hate philosophy but I also only minored in it.

I still only hate math.

Loved math, didn't get to have the fun of taking any normal math in college though :( tested out. Stats and physics don't count as math, right?

Stats counts as math to me. Stats is what makes me hate math.

I really really hated stats. I can't stress it enough. But it was a prereq for a research class (that I ended up loving) so it was unavoidable

I LOVED stats :mrgreen: I also love calculus. Physics, not so much. But I think my professors are more to blame for that

But how can I possibly live my life when I don't have a profound knowledge of aesthetics or stoicism or anything like that? :( :( :(

Just make up some shit and call it Oopsuism. Problem solved.

Who do you think I am, a cult leader? :x

Hey guys! :D I was looking through some older threads and people mention the some Cambridge bundles (like the LR hard question bundle, logic games by type, etc.) and all I can find on their website are some solutions/explanations manuals. Did they stop selling these bundles? It seemed like they were super helpful to people.

yeah they stopped selling them. you can probably find a copy on amazon or eBay but it may be overpriced. power score has books similar to it though, I believe

If women and non-Europeans are people according to Oopsuist theory you'll have beat out the majority of western philosophy. :)

It's pretty sad when you think about it, eh?

Just did a few RC drills with pencil (I usually use pen) and I can't believe I'm switching this late in the game. Huge difference :roll:

Do you think that most 173+ scorers go -0/1 on LG and do the worst on RC? Or is it totally variable?

Yes, I imagine it'd be rarer to get 173+ without killing LG, judging by the June thread. You'd have to get lucky on LR and RC. Some high scorers almost look at LG as a rest, lol.

Well I'm not one of the more experienced users in this thread, but my most general advice is to really adopt the perspective of the author. I barely diagram passages. Rather, I underline what I think is the thesis/MP of the first paragraph, underline shifts in viewpoint, and bracket the key points of a given paragraph. Sometimes I also denote wonky portions of the science passages that seem marginally important but will require review if they are mentioned in questions.

I also am a pretty (although not abnormally) fast reader, so I try to finish the passage in 2 minutes (the science ones usually take 15-30 seconds longer) because it is easier to read the passage quickly and thoroughly and later review a portion in relation to a question, than to read the passage extremely diligently and try to answer almost every question from memory. I have finished almost every RC section with at least 2-3 minutes to spare with this method, and it allows me time to revisit the questions that were most difficult.

ETA: I have gotten 2-4 wrong on most of my RC sections, so I am by no means an authority, and my personal strategies (limited diagramming, question-oriented approach) may not be the best strategy for others (or even myself :lol: )

I've finally gotten to the point where I virtually never (with v rare exceptions) just get a question wrong. My only issue is speed, and occasionally missing a question because I am rushing to finish in time.

Do you have the link to their profile handy? that makes this process hopeful and this cycle seems like a total toss up for most people in a good way
