The Brief
A Blog about the LSAT, Law School and Beyond

I used to love Mad Libs when I was little.  Kids would get a couple books of Mad Libs on their birthday, and then have to protect them from their friends who didn't have any of their own and wanted to use up their valuable Mad Lib books.  Friends like me ;).  Well now I can make my own using the interwebs, so I don't need friends anymore!

This is a special Mad Lib, it makes LSAT questions. Try it out here: LSAT Mad Lib Maker

Look below for the one I did myself.  I'm sure you can make a better one.  Not.

LSAT Mad Lib – Hell is not perfect, no fails on perfect land (by Alan)

People who say that Hell is perfect are clearly wrong. On perfect land, fails by water is not a problem. Consequently, farmers whose land is perfect do not build playpens to prevent fails. Yet I hear that the farms in Hell are dotted with playpens.

The author's conclusion in the passage depends on the assumption that

  • (A) the only cause of fails is water
  • (B) there are playpens on farmland in Hell which were build to prevent fails
  • (C) playpens of the kind found on farmland in Hell have been shown to prevent fails
  • (D) on perfect land there is no fails
  • (E) the only playpens in Hell are on farmland

We have unbundled LSAT PrepTests 63 (June 2011), 64 (October 2011), and 65 (December 2011) along with their HD video explanations from our LSAT Premium course.

You can purchase the 3 preptest pack here for $79.

We received demand from the June students who didn't want to purchase our entire course, but did want to learn from those three most recent preptests. Smart. The Last Minute PrepTest Pack gives you those three preptests for instant download and printing. More importantly, you get access to HD video explanations for each of the 100 questions in those tests. The video explanations walk you through every question in its entirety including the stimulus, the passage, the question stem, the right answers (and why they are right), and the wrong answers (and why they are wrong and why people might mistakenly think they are right). Each video is short and to the point. They are in HD and can be played back at faster (1.3x, 1.7x) speeds. If you are taking the test in June, you really should take PrepTests 63, 64 and 65 if you haven't yet. You still have time. If you have taken them already, this is the perfect set of video explanations to check your thinking against.

1. Chin up. You've been studying for a long time. You're ready for this. As a bonus, you still have three weeks to improve even more.

2. Take 1 to 2 LSATs a week. These LSATs ought to be very recent ones (50's and higher). Take them under simulated testing conditions with our LSAT Proctor and Timer.

3. Use the Fool Proof Method for Logic Games and the Blind Review Method for Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension to review your simulated LSATs.

4. Sleep, a lot. Otherwise, you forget everything you learned.

[This is a lesson excerpt from our online course, for which we invite you to enroll.]

Thomas Edison said that genius is "1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration." Rene Descartes said "You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing." Lucretius, the Roman philosopher, said "Constant dripping hollows out a stone." The point is that hard work counts a lot. Especially when it comes to the LSAT. Yes, how well you do on the LSAT does depend on your raw intellect too, but do not discount how large a role your work ethics will play.
