Jo1to6, what specific LSAT book did you use for CR? Would you recommend official releases of LSAT actual tests? Since Official LSAT does not have answer explanation, will it suffice just to take tests? I'm especially concerned about bold face CRs for which explanations would be a bonus.

Hello,

I used the Official 10 LSATS book and I found it really useful for thinking through challenging CRs. I worked on the problems in the appropriate sections despite not having the answers. If you have any doubts on specific questions, you can post them in the forums and I'm sure everyone would be glad to help. However, I'm not sure if we are allowed to post the exact questions anymore... better to check with the admins on that.

I hope my reply gets to you in time... GOOD LUCK!

I don't think the following one can be solved, as we don't know how many persons have taken the exam.

what do you guys think?

Here's an example of a standard deviation question you might find on the exam:

The average (arithmetic mean) score on the exam was 35 and the standard deviation was 3. What number in the answer list below is 2 1/2 standard deviations from the mean?

5.5
27.5
29
37.5
41

I didn't see anything more complex than this...

----------------------
You don't need the number of people, it is actually a very easy question if you know what a SD is. 2 1/2 times SD is 7.5, so the score that is 2 1/2 SD from the mean must me 35 +/-7.5, which can only be 42.5 or 27.5. The latter is the only number on the list so that's the solution.
