    What about the LR with cars?

    The one about selling their parts after 10 years? I remember this question but can't remember which section. I also had three LRs so I'm probably not being helpful haha. As more time passes, I just can't remember anything about the test anymore ...

  • Guys, I'm pretty sure I blacked out for the experimental RC section. My test was RC-LR-LG-RC-LR and my first section was the experimental section. I distinctly remember the pyramid passage, but I don't remember anything after that... The rest of the test I feel like I remember pretty well. I know it's just the experimental section but this is bugging me. Did anyone have the same sequence of sections and remember the other topics in the experimental section?

    Did anyone else think the LG was stupid easy? Also did anyone else have a problem with one question?

    are you referring to question in LG sec?

    Can anyone confirm this, if the question about reducing drinking on campus was real or experm?

    can confirm was real

    I had RC LR LG RC LR. Was really hoping that the first RC was real, but turns out it was experimental. Judges passage and Freud/Marx passage were ridiculous. LG was pretty easy and LR was par for the course, if not a little harder.

    Hopefully there's a decent curve, though doubtful considering June's RC was brutal, as well.

    December's looking pretty nice right about now.

    Sounds like you had the same format as me. Do you remember the other passages in the experimental section? I can't remember any other them for the life of me besides the pyramid/Louvre section. Lol I know it's just the experimental section but it's bugging the crap out of me.

    I've seen elsewhere that either your section one or section three was experimental (two different forms with different experimental sections). If that's true, my three was definitely real and I had this question in my section one. Which would mean it was experimental.

    Okay last time I'll post this but anyone who had only two LR sections:

    Do you remember a question about Lemurs? It said it was useful to study primates like chimpanzees/gorillas or something. Only Lemurs were in Madagascar? Stated that some lemur species are diurnal (sleep during the night, basically opposite of nocturnal) and that high primates all evolved from this species of low primates.

    Once again, I had LR LG LR LR RC, and this question was in the 2nd LR (3rd section overall). I think i bombed that 3rd section but did alright elsewhere so that's why i'm desperate haha. Thanks!!!

    Lol maybe that had more than 1 experimental section to LG then? I remember this question distinctly cuz it was the last question I was checking over, and I made sure to memorize it to check if it was experimental. All the details I wrote are definitely quite close to what the original question was.

    Ugh it sucks having LR as an experimental cuz it's so hard to remember which question was from which

    its been confirmed that they rotated the experimental section btween s1 and s3. The lemurs was not in the real LR. I had 2 sections and do not recall that question.

    I blacked out? I had 3 LR. Don't remember many specifics but I voted that it was like other LSATS and that I was well prepared. Some people I tested with already registered for December, I did not feel that way. I felt good. I did feel the logic games were easy - I balked when a girl in my room said she didn't know what 7sage was. "Say what now? How are you here?" Reading comp was on par, there were some funky LR questions but generally speaking it felt pretty standard issue. I tested at Lewis & Clark in Portland,OR and everything went smoothly. I came out of the site and my husband said I was one of the few who didn't look unhinged/suicidal - so....bonus.

    It was definitely GQ in my opinion, there was one question that required you to understand that you didn't necessarily have to see a Q after every G though.

    I know the feeling. This is a type of rule I've misinterpreted once before but I feel like the answers aligned too nicely for me to be wrong. I eliminated all other choices on each question which usually isn't possible when I misinterpret. If you thought it was easy, it probably was. Nothing you can do about it now anyway.

    Yeah, logic games was always easily my worst section. Which is why I found it funny that I was thinking to myself on the way home, "Maybe the games bailed out my shitty RC score."

For the 2nd RC, have the AB passage of physics and chemistry and the first passage is about the writing of feminism. Can anyone confirm that which one is experimental. Thank you.

    The 2nd RC is the real one according to a post on TLS Forum. But I think the 2nd one started with a passage on African textile if I'm not mistaken.
