[ENDED] Free LR Tutoring, July 9th EST

Alum Member Sage 7Sage Tutor
edited July 2017 10721 karma

Hey Everyone,

As promised I am starting the free LR tutoring. The first session will be on July 9th at 3 pm (eastern time).

The goal of these sessions is to go over one cookie cutter argument type each week. A cookie cutter argument is an argument that logically repeats on each test. The LSAT writers use different subject matter or grammar or both to disguise their logical shape in the stimulus and make it difficult for us. Sometimes they even have more than one cookie cutter argument in the stimulus. But the logic works pretty much the same way. Recognizing these patterns and knowing how the answers might shape up according to the question type is what helps gives us speed on LSAT.

The first session will be conducted on conditional logic. This is, in my opinion, one of the easier patterns to grasp. This would allow us to go over what cookie cutter arguments are and how conditional logic patterns appear throughout different question types. This will also give me a good idea of how to improve the next sessions.

After that, I have the next three session also ready to go. I am hoping to do each week a new session. The second one is on causal arguments, followed by Phenomena Hypothesis, and then Partial information ( I made up this name). These are the main ones and in my opinion occur most frequently on test. Depending on how these sessions go, I can work on doing the other patterns as well or we could stop there.

There is no minimum or maximum number of people. I welcome everybody. The questions will be made available on the screens for all to see so you don't have to bring in anything. I will be pulling questions from the older practice tests, PT 30-39. So this will not ruin fresh PT's for anyone as these tests are mainly used for drilling. However, you will get more out of these sessions if you have done the core curriculum. This will help you add on to the information you already know and you do need to know the basics of how conditional arguments work as well as what it means to strengthen/weaken, find the flaw, and see what must be true.

I am actually really excited to see how this shapes up and I hope this will be helpful to all of you. Preparing for these sessions from scratch was actually a lot of work so I am hoping this helps a lot of you out.

To join, please follow the link at the specified date and time. I will see you all there.

You can do either. : ) You will get the most out of these sessions if you participate, so I encourage it. But I understand that not all of us can or feel ready to do that. I assure you I am very friendly and it will be a good, comfortable, and learning environment. So please feel free to join.

It will not be recorded. I'll let you know how long it lasts after I have done a final run through. I am hoping it will be shorter than that. But that's the amount of time I have given myself.

Sorry. It was basically the only time gotomeeting was available. I didn't want to do it too late either.

I'm trying to become a morning person (for the LSAT), so this could give me a good start I'm thinking of waking up at 3:55am and join you. lol

Hi Sami. Thank you for organizing this. Sounds amazing. However, I just started taking the course and do not really know how to deal with LR questions yet, so I was wondering if I can still join the session?

You can. I am just not sure how useful that would be. How about this, if you still want to and you join us and it doesn't make sense to you, you can always leave.

Hi Sami. I have just started to go through the curriculum, but I think these lessons may be valuable. Is there a possibility you may be recording the lessons and posting them somewhere for people to review later?

Unfortunately I am not a sage so none of these sessions will be recorded. : (

Edit:
And I got informed by @"Cant Get Right" that I can record them but since its LSAT material which is copyright, LSAC might not take too kindly to this.

@akistotle, @goingfor99th, and @akeegs92,
Sami said she'll do separate sessions early morning/evening if 5 people are having scheduling conflicts. I'm one of those people, since I live outside the U.S. If you all are also having scheduling conflicts, please let me know! I'm desperately searching for 4 other people with the same problem as me.

I'd be interested in working with you to make this happen. My schedule will be limited to evenings, though, unless we do a weekend session.
