    I think RC was really hard :/

    I had LR RC LR LG LR and I thought the LG was super easy, RC average and two LRs slightly more difficult than usual. I wonder which one was the experimental.

    Where did my comment go lol
    I said RC was really hard :/ experimental logic games - I almost had a fit when I was on the game about horses. Hope they will never use it on real test. The real logic games section was really nice. It's possible to maybe miss only one or two questions in a very last last game. The first LR was okay. One with question about oak trees and leaves or about disagreement over immediate expanding of streets in historic center. The second LR was tricky tricky. The one with treadmill versus activities in nature in it

    Real LR (I only had two sections):
    Election campaign promises/harming the public
    Too many traffic tickets

    For those who had 2 LG, was the one with race horses/tracks experimental?

    @ellie1991 That's awful. Was the time at least eventually extended?

    That RC was just complete bullshit. I read that third passage and almost had no idea what the fuck I just read. How can you even prepare for that shit. I graduated top of my class in undergrad so I think I have a decent level of intelligence but that was just brutal. Compared to older LSATS.. Lol

    @as5324therapy it was comparative. I had the real RC as it was my only RC section. If you had two, name the subject matter of each and I can confirm

    So just curious what the opinion is of those who also took the exam in December about the differences between it and this one? Was this re-take harder, easier, about the same? Also anything particular you wish you had studied or practiced more before the February exam?

    Much easier. Wish I had practiced RC more.

    I had two logic games sections, and they were both more difficult than anything I've ever done. Rules were vague...some games gave like two rules, and I'm not sure if it was nerves but I just could not make any inferences. LG is usually my 100% section, so I'm a bit nervous...just thankful it's done with.
  • TheAnxious0LTheAnxious0L Legacy Member

    Also...someone in my sitting brought a phone into the room, and the proctor was WAY to chill about it and let him keep it in the room at another desk. And she didn't collect tests during the break which has me on edge.
  • enchristenchrist Member

    @splitter91 I think it was the first question in the section, a disagreement question about a guy having a lot of/too many traffic violations or tickets

    I had 2 RC's, one comparative was on happiness and the other was on sprawls. So I think the sprawl one is real, also the first passage for the other one was really hard and on geology and volcanoes if I can remember correctly, I remember I thought I really efffed up and then when I got another RC which was the one on shrubs, I thought the test had given me a second chance!

    Also did anyone else who is familiar with usual LSAT answer sheets find it interesting that this time, instead of asking how we prepared for the LSAT, they instead asked of our familiarity with smartphones, touch-screens, and reading long passages on the computer. Does this mean LSAT will make the switch to computer-based examinations instead of the hand-written ones? If so, how do you guys feel about that? I personally prefer it the way it currently is, besides being so costly of course :P

    I'm surprised people found this test easier than December. I took the December test as a prep test and felt better then I do now

    Oh dude, now I remember! Yeah, I had those 2 RC sections too. I remember thinking the exact same thing. The happiness comparative passage really messed me up, so when I got the shrubs RC section as my last, I was so happy, it felt like I at least had a chance to make it work. And it was much better!

    It makes sense, since I normally have really good timing for RC.

    I thought the test was really hard compared to all of the practice test I have been taking. I am hoping it was hard for everyone and it will reflect in the curve. Otherwise Ill be back in June

  • bethyfbethyf Member

    I had 2 LG and I can remember barely anything about them except I did good on one and bad on the other. Do people agree that the experimental ones were hard? or are there any more hint words besides the ones that have been listed so far that can help me remember? Was there a real one with F, G, K?
  • Juan_johnJuan_john Alum Member

    From what has been said here and in Reddit , the harder LG appears to be experimental, the one with the race horses.
    I really thought the easy one was the experimental, It felt easy.
    Or just 7sage made it feel that way.

    I had there LR sections (1,3,5) and was wondering if anybody who had that configuration knows which one was experimental (hoping it was the 5th). However, I'm also not sure if somebody with this same configuration of LR 1/3/5 could have had their first LR expiremental whereas my 3rd or 5th was experimental...
  • leeban92leeban92 Member

    @jameskalcheim I had that order, though the actual experiential sexton. might be placed differently. I think section 3 was experimental for me, section 1 was definitely real
  • nicolitanicolita Member

    Yes the sections Dillon cites are the real ones.
    I had 2 RC sections-- the last one (the real one, unfortunately) with the Native American/African American sculptor who studied in Rome; workers' rights and workers being able to have a say on corporate policy--- and the highly annoying confusing passages on suburban/urban sprawl (I still don't know how to describe the passage it was so confusing) and the even more annoyingly abstruse and boring passage on shrubs and hedges.
    The only LG section I had was the furniture (mirrors, pillows, sofas); conferences (Madrid, London, Paris); and bookstore/authors.
    I only had 2 LR sections and the topics were the same as Dillon cites above.

    @ellie1991 That's ridiculous. Do you know if you are going to contact LSAC about this? I'm not sure if it is recommended to do so with an issue like this, but that's a huge deal. I'd be livid.

    exactly! I screwed up the entire section for that single game. it used to be my 100% part :(

    @ranxu_2015 That sucks, I would get 18-20 points on a LG section but that 2nd game threw me off. I was also shaky on the 4th game, hopefully games 1 and 3 went well

    @leeban92 nerves can be apart of it but really think it was harder than any prac-test i have ever taken. Only time will tell.
