Where in the on-line modules/lessons do I find more info. on paraphrasing, besides the on-line module/lesson 1. Thanks!

Thanks for the question. I assume you mean "prephrasing" (predicting some truth about the correct answer), not "paraphrasing" (restating something in your own words, like a personal summary). If so, you'll find the series of modules titled LSAT Scenarios contain comprehensive discussions of prephrasing (these modules appear as post-lesson supplements throughout the course), and there's also some talk of prephrasing in the Question Type Relationship module. Pay close attention to these as you encounter them following some of your later lessons.

Also, I wrote two lengthy blog posts about prephrasing that I think you might find useful:

Prephrasing I - http://blog.powerscore.com/lsat/the-fun ... ng-part-i/

Prephrasing II - http://blog.powerscore.com/lsat/the-fun ... g-part-ii/

I hope that helps!
