소개글

다음 교재는 필자가 지난 2004-05년에 걸쳐 서울 강남 모 영어학원에서 GRE 롸이팅 강의를 할 때 작성했던 자료를 토대로 만든 것입니다. 여기에서는 GRE 아규먼트 섹션에 나오는 총 242개의 샘플 문제 가운데 절반이 약간 못 되는 104개 문항에 대한 답이 제공되어 있습니다.

이들 정답은 다른 소스에 나오는 내용을 일체 참고하지 않고 필자가 직접 작성한 것이므로 이 내용을 외워서 실제 시험에서 거의 그대로 옮겨 쓴다고 해도(물론 별로 바람직한 일은 아니지만) 표절행위로 감점을 받는 일이 없을 것입니다. 여기에 더해 때로 어려운 단어나 표현에 대한 한글(또는 영어) 해설이 각주 형식으로 붙어 있으므로 영어 읽기에 완전히 익숙하지 않은 대부분의 한국학생들에게 더욱 도움을 줄 수 있을 것으로 봅니다. 이 교재의 총 분량은 90페이지입니다.

본문내용

ARGUMENT #3: The following appeared in a newspaper article about law firms in the city of Megalopolis.

"In Megalopolis, the number of law school graduates who went to work for large, corporate firms declined by 15 percent over the last three years, whereas an increasing number of graduates took jobs at small, general practice firms. Even though large firms usually offer much higher salaries, law school graduates are choosing to work for the smaller firms most likely because they experience greater job satisfaction at smaller firms. In a survey of first-year students at a leading law school, most agreed with the statement that earning a high salary was less important to them than job satisfaction. This finding suggests that the large, corporate firms of Megalopolis will need to offer graduates more benefits and incentives and reduce the number of hours they must work."

----

The author argues that law school graduates in the City of Megalopolis could experience more job satisfaction if they work for smaller law firms as opposed to bigger corporate firms. To substantiate his argument, the author lists two reasons that the number of law school graduates hired by big law firms has actually declined for the last three years and first-year students at a leading law school say high salary is not the most important criterion in selecting their places of work.

But the mere fact that the number of graduates has declined by 15 percent three years in a row is not sufficient to warrant the general trend for the graduates to shun large, prestigious firms. It may be because the large firms have started downsizing their operations due to adverse economic conditions and thus reduced the number of new hires. It may also be because the overall quality of Megalopolis’s law school students has deteriorated due to, for example, the schools’ inability to retain good professors.

Similarly, the survey results obtained from first-year law school students are equally dubious evidence supporting the author’s contention because the first-year students are typically idealistic and may prefer non-monetary incentives such as working pro bono for the indigent or pursuing civil causes over high salaries alone. The results may have been different if the author conducted a survey on third-years students who are more realistic and money-driven.

Finally, the author’s suggestion to large law firms that they offer better benefit packages and reduce work hours is mistaken because there is no evidence in this statement that more and more law school graduates turn away from large firms because they do not like what they would get from large law firms and long work hours they have to endure with such firms.
