Experimental section

If there is no PDF to review for a particular section on the lsac website for the Sept test, does that mean that was the experimental section?

    Yes. The LSAT on test day is given in 5 total sections. 4 of them count towards your score. The idea is that the 1 section that is not scored is the 1 section that piecemeal the LSAC builds future exams with (by gathering data on the questions answered.) Test takers will have different sections: amongst a few different combinations.

    Ok, so the fact that test takers get a different experimental section is what allows people to come together on message boards the day of the exam to deduce collectively what sections were "real" (count towards score) and which are experimental: because the real sections will be the same across all test takers on that particular day.

    I hope this helps answer your question
