    LG: employees/booths, opening performances with artists, department store sales, forgot the other
    LR: I had 3, 26 q w dolphins, 25 and 25.
    RC: opera,plate techtonics

    Games and RC destroyed me. I’ve been -0~-3 in games and only attempted one question on the last game.
    RC killed me I easily missed 11.
    LR seemed relatively normal to me, I finish two sections with time left which I rarely do on PTs.
    Probably gonna cancel.

    I am praying that the first LG was experimental but I’m getting mixed messages.

    Let me ask you this, did the first section have the 5ppl 3 booths or was that the second? Because thats going to dictate the answer. 5ppl 3 booths was apparently real. As was artists to musicians.

    I think the dolphin LR passage is definitely real. If it wasn't, then that means this test would've consisted of 102 questions.

    Real RC (REALLY TOUGH!): 14th amendment, music/words (comparative)
    Real LG (fairly easy/standard/no oddball misc games): putting people in booths, musicians/ exhibitions

    I need help remembering my two LG sections. I remember the set ups more. The last one being a [admin note: too specific, read OP] in my 1st LG section. I think about games and leveling up.
    [admin note: too specific, read OP]

    In my 2nd LG section I remember more [admin note: too specific, read OP] the last one being a [admin note: too specific, read OP] with artist exhibitions and musical performances.

    Per Powerscore, musicians and artists was real. As was 5ppl 3 booths, weekly electronic sales and book editing. I could have sworn 5ppl 3booths was the in the first section but my brain must be fried

    Crap man my memory is so shot, these games were very similar.

    So i had RC, LR, LG, LG LR.

    Can Anyone can confirm this, and if so, was that first LG experimental?

    If the second LG was real im screwed, totally misread a damn rule in the first game and had to go back

    Some guy was erasing after the 5th section, when the proctors were picking up the answer sheets/booklets. I told the proctors. They said he was reported to the LSAC. He claimed that he was just erasing marks besides the numbers. I could have sworn he was changing answers

    Anyway I had LR RC LR LR LG

    I normally go 0 on LG, but I thought it was pretty tough.

    Yes I believe so....

    I had the same.... I had LR (26) RC LR (26) LR (25) LG

    For the second LR section, I had a question about insurance sales/advertising and one about venus gases warming atmosphere.... Was that the real section?

    I had RC, LR, RC, LG and LR.

    LR both seemed quite easy. In response to @DBryne07 I remember the Venus gases being one of the LR.

    One of the RC was quite easy and the other difficult. My memory is terrible but from the sounds of other people's posts it sounds like harder one was the real one /: ugh. I was so excited about that one too.

    What are the standards for reporting a proctor to LSAC? This lady actually tapped me on my shoulder during middle of Section 1 to tell me my Advil (that she had confiscated) was actually allowed and that she was going to leave it next to my desk. Wtf WHY WOULD YOU INTERRUPT A PERSON TAKING THE LSAT??? ?

    Besides that, I had LR as my experimental. The games section thankfully didn't have any weird games but I felt like most were very time consuming ? even though LG is my strongest section.

    LG - musicians and o/r/v [admin note: too specific, read OP]
    RC - 14th amendment, domestication of horses, music, plate tectonics

I can barely remember the first section, except that it was really easy, and it was like two [admin note: too specific, read OP]...? The second section had something about an electronics store, or something about headphones and microwave. I hated that section with a passion.

    The LG games are all so time-consuming! I usually finish early -0 with at least 5 min to spare and I missed two on this one...
    BTW the 5 musician 5 artists one for the last game is real. I totally forgot all other game settings, probably due to the stress this one game is causing me... a 5-question game which costs me 7 min to do 3 questions??? why?

    I feel this is so much harder than practice tests but maybe that's due to my nervousness....
    I had RC LR RC / LG LR
    the first RC was brutal ! Personally I would give 5/5 for at least 3 of passages. Can't recall any key words but the first one is law-related.
    The latter RC has Kafka.
    I think there is also comparative passages about music and poems? But I don't remember if that's in 1st or 3rd section lol.
    As for LR I think there are a lot of non-traditional questions.??
    Guys see you in November?

    I had 2 LGs. Omg. Both of them killed me. Only did 3/4. Sadder part is that I had most problems on the elimination questions in LG (first question).
    It seems consensus that the 123 layer [admin note: too specific, read OP] was fake right?

    I had problems on the [admin note: too specific, read OP] question, mainly the elimination question, which killed all my time. I believe that was the first game?

    Would love to discuss if someone wants to PM....

    Also, RC first passage.... WTF? I have no idea what that “state” whatever meant. So brutal for a first passage.
    Real RC:
    14th amendment
    Horses
    Music/Poetry
    Seismic plates

    Real LR: 26 and 25 Qs
    They included...
    Venus, Volcanos
    Sweeter/artificial sweetener parallel reasoning
    Long ass question on wage and bosses making 50X —question filled half the page.
    Pollution on Mars

    Any questions on which LR was real, just ask. I only had real ones so I should be able to recall
