I have come across books written for an Indian audience that help prepare them to pass the Common Admission Test. I’ve used such books to help me with American exams like the GRE and the SAT. I am looking for a book written with the same level of rigor and lucidity to help me conquer the dreaded LSAT logic games section. [more inside]

I'm applying to work for KAPLAN as an instructor of their LSAT prep course. I've passed the initial stages, done an audition tape where I presented to my webcam, and done a general phone interview. Apparently the next step is to do a "technical interview" with someone who is already an LSAT instructor to test me on "the nitty gritty" of the LSAT. [more inside]

Between my job and an LSAT study class, my brain is working pretty hard right now. I'm finding that occasionally after a couple of hours of homework (or work work) my brain needs a nap. Are there tips, tricks, or activities that you've found, that let the part of the brain focused on logical reasoning and understanding intense minute details, "take a break" so that after 15 minutes I can return to homework or work feeling refreshed?

GRE scores are supposedly valid for five years after the testing year in which you tested. Such is the case with the GMAT and LSAT also. MCAT scores are valid for 2-3 years. My question is, has anyone ever had to retake a test because their scores were too old, even though the scores hadn't reached their "expiration date"? Has anyone encountered an academic / grad admissions department that encouraged a test retake because previous scores weren't fresh / recent enough? (Admitters and admittees are both welcome to respond.)

What can I do to gradually improve my ability to handle abstract thoughts and ideas in my brain. [more inside]
