i am in desperate need of CR and RC strategies. If some one has a something along those lines, please post it here or guide me to the place where i can get it.
Thanks a million in advance.
Option 1 ----------- I have prepared CR from LSAT (Logical reasoning bible for LSAT) and it has helped me a lot, i am more confident now and know what i am asked and what i am suppose to do, earlier i was like a whild Rabbit all over the question and answers and didnt knew what i am doing.
Currently i am preparing RC from LSAT bible and finding it quite easy to go through once you are done with CR LSAT bibile.
Option 2 ----------- -- Power score GMAT CR guide or MGMAT CR guide (I recomend Power score) -- MGMAT RC guide.

Q13)Strengthen Questions Toxicologist: A survey of oil-refinery workers who work with MBTE, an ingredient currently used in some smog-reducing gasoline, found an alarming incidence of complaints about headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Since gasoline containing MBTE will soon be widely used, we can expect an increased incidence of headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Each of the following, if true, strengthens the toxicologist’s argument EXCEPT: (A) Most oil-refinery workers who do not work with MBTE do not have serious health problems involving headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. If worked with MBTE then serious health problem - Strengthen the toxicologist argument - incorrect (B) Headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath are among the symptoms of several medical conditions that are potentially serious threats to public health. Health problems exist but nothing to do with MBTE - CORRECT (C) Since the time when gasoline containing MBTE was first introduced in a few metropolitan areas, those areas reported an increase in the number of complaints about headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Strengthening the toxicologist’s argument- Incorrect (D) Regions in which only gasoline containing MBTE is used have a much greater incidence of headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath than do similar regions in which only MBTE-free gasoline is used. Strengthening the toxicologist’s argument- Incorrect (E) The oil-refinery workers surveyed were carefully selected to be representative of the broader population in their medical histories prior to exposure to MBTE, as well as in other relevant respects . not really relevant.
Q14)AssumptionQuestion Q14)In any field, experience is required for a proficient person to become an expert. Through experience, a proficient person gradually develops a repertory of model situations that allows an immediate, intuitive response to each new situation. This is the hallmark of expertise, and or this reason computerized “expert systems” cannot be as good as human exerts. Although computers have the ability to store millions of bits of information, the knowledge of human experts, who benefit from the experience of thousands of situations, is not stored within their brains in the form of rules and facts. The argument requires the assumption of which one of the following? (A) Computers can show no more originality in responding to a situation than that built into them by their designers. This is already stated in stem, so can’t be an assumption (B) The knowledge of human experts cannot be adequately rendered into the type of information that a computer can store. This is an Assumption as when perform denial test the stem become untrue. (C) Human experts rely on information that can be expressed by rules and facts when they respond to new situations. Not an assumption, if fact opposite of what’s given in stem. (D) Future advances in computer technology will not render computers capable of sorting through greater amounts of information. Irrelevant (E) Human experts rely heavily on intuition while they are developing a repertory of model situations. Not clearly mentioned in stem, its exaggerated.
MainPoint Question Q15)When drivers are deprived of sleep there are definite behavioral changes, such as slower responses to stimuli and a reduced ability to concentrate, but people’s self-awareness of these changes is poor. Most drivers think they can tell when they are about to fall asleep, but they cannot. Each of the following illustrates the principle that the passage illustrates EXCEPT: (A) People who have been drinking alcohol are not good judges of whether they are too drunk to drive. Illustrate the principle as state of mind is changed after drinking alcohol (B) Elementary school students who dislike arithmetic are not good judges of whether multiplication tables should be included in the school’s curriculum. Correct as state of mind Is not changed. (this is an exception) (C) Industrial workers who have just been exposed to noxious fumes are not good judges of whether they should keep working. Illustrate the principle as state of mind is changed after fumes exposed (D) People who have just donated blood and have become faint are not good judges of whether they are ready to walk out of the facility. Illustrate the principle as state of mind is changed after blood donation due to weakness. (E) People who are being treated for schizophrenia are not good judges of whether they should continue their medical treatments. Illustrate the principle - already under treatment.
