Homework between May 15 and May 25:

Reread pages 15 – 17 (especially page 16) of  “LSAT SuperPrep”. Focus on “How  the argument goes …” You should also have read, thought about and digested the rest  of the intro  commentary in that book. (This is the section that precedes the 3 practice tests).

1. For June 2007 LSAT – Red Book (the logic game is about recyling):

– For each logical reasoning section do the “argument stripping exercises”. Focus  on the “what and the why”. Reduce the language and try to put the argument in your own words: “Conclusion, since Premise”

– for each question, think clearly about what aspect  of the “How the argument goes” relation is the question asking about.

– for each answer choice  break them into their  component parts.

2. Continue practicing the reading comprehension. You should have all the exercises in the blue book  completed.

3. Practice  LSAT Testing: You all have the most recent book of 10 LSATs. You should reserve the last three  tests in that book for the final three “in class LSAT practice  tests” (May 26, June 1 and June 8). What you should do in the next 10 days is at least two  of the practice  LSATs  in the LSAT SuperPrep book. These are important because they include explanations from LSAT. You must  do these  under timed conditions.  Get a family member  to time you.  You should include  the writing sample so that you are doing five  sections. We will be  doing 6 sections for the remaining three  tests. Furthermore, you should do these tests at approximately 1:00 p.m. You want to be practicing at the same  time as the real LSAT. You should review  the LSAT commentary for  those questions that you get  wrong.

4. Law School Application: The Law School Bound book is really eight books in one.  The third  book “Law School  Application Manual” is important for you. You should go through that and begin thinking about aspects of your life that you may want to include in your personal statements.

Note that this  means that you should  have  completed (almost) “LSAT SuperPrep” by the time we  meet  on May 25.

5. Feeling more ambitious? Looking for  more  to  do?  Some of you may want to purchase additional  books  of 10 LSATs. I suggest “10 More  Actual  LSATS” and “The Next 10 LSATS“. They are relatively inexpensive. As I mentioned in class, we can provide  you with online commentary to those tests. I gave you the password to the files  in class. If  you lost  it, you can email me. Update: The price of  these books  is  lower  than I remember.  At approximately $15 per book, I  suggest  that you get both. Over $25 shipping is fee!

That’s  all for  now.  Have  a nice long weekend – but remember:

“Happiness, Friendliness and LSATness!”

See you on May 25.
