    you're likely to get a generous scale.
    Is there a good website or thread that explains the scale, or can you sum it up?

    Also, was the LR question about what year the book was written based on it asking where he was real or experimental

    So when we say a test is a -10 or a -12 test, that's the number of questions you can miss and still score a 170. Let me see if I can find a link to a more indepth explanation of the grading structure. It's not curved, it's "equated," but I probably can't explain that very well, lol.

    Is there a way we can confirm which section the LR questions are from? I had LR, RC, LR, LG, LR. I remember all the questions that are being discussed, but I cannot for the life of me remember which section they came from. It's all such a blur!! I do know I felt I did better on 2/3 of the LR sections though so........any help is greatly appreciated (:

    Also yeah, the trading LG WTF!!! I'd say it was worse than the virus one.
  • 20 karma
    @emilycyoung1 I also had a hard time with the LG section. It has always been my weakest section, but I had gotten to a point where I was confidently completing at least three games in all my the prep tests. On this one I was bumbling through the third game (the watercolor/oil paintings) and didn't even get to the one about the companies switching buildings. Just wanted to let you know you weren't alone thinking it was a rough section :-) In any case, I think I had a better experience than the guy in the room who threw up in the middle of it.

    So the LG game with the paintings on the wall and the trading company screwed me with no vaseline !! Because wtf was that ???? to top it off I got 3 LR sections... I believe section 3 (26 questions ) was the experimental .. section one (25 questions) and section five (26 questions) i think were real ..... in other words, I am freaking out because LG is one of my strongest sections and I believe I bombed the last two question sets. They had no mercy whatsoever.
  • esteeroseesteerose Alum Member

    @BreeBree I am feeling the same way. I was depending on my LG skills to make up for the other sections, but I had to guess on those two hard games.
  • FrostbyteFrostbyte Legacy Member

    I didn't finish LG.. Guessed almost all of the last two :( I don't understand what happened.. I usually go -0 or -1 on LG.. anyone else experience this?

    Actually thinking of cancelling my score after the LG.

    I killed that RC. I said this can't be real. The other one was hard af it was so sciencee that I just knew it was real. Glad it's not. One of the LR was a breeze. The other not as hard at Sept but not easy. That LG might have tanked me. Hard af. Much harder than Sept.

    @"Cant Get Right" Thank you for the link! I'll be hoping for a -14 curve, then.
  • EmmaWI88EmmaWI88 Alum Member

    OK I had 3 LR sections.

    I remember the last contained a T-Rex question about their weird ass bodies.

    Middle I'm blanking on......sorry

    First I think had a cat food question.

    I'm certain the first or third were experimental though as the third contained 26 questions and I believe at least one LR has 26 and I think the first two only had 25.
  • samburst95samburst95 Member

    alexander the great was the real 26 question LR, correct? If so, then what was the real 25 question LR?
  • esteeroseesteerose Alum Member

    @"Cant Get Right" Do the 7sage scores reflect the curve? Or is there not much of a difference.

    They do, so that should give you an excellent idea of how tests tend to balance out!

    The piano/violence duet game thing was the worst question I have ever come across. Worse than the preptest 77's awful third one. Please tell me that one was experimental!

    I can confirm that the following LR questions were real:

    -Leopard Magpie
    -18th-Century Church Organ
    -Iguanas on an Island
    -Birds and Their Nests

    Oh man this LSAT..... I want to crawl in my bed and cry my eyes out..... LG has always been my strongest section and I totally fucking bombed it. Had no clue how to do the watercolor/oil paint one, skipped it and moved on to Game 4 and knew even less how to do that one! I tried to treat it like the virus game, but it took up so much damn time, I ended up just guessing on most of it, and guessed on all of Game 3... I am so freaking mad about this. Had an anxiety attack after LG was over with and spend most of my time freaking out on the last LR section.....This was my second try and I wanted it to be my last and I don't even know what to do right now....

    Totally bombed LG. Everything else was relativity manageable. Felt great about RC. Ugh!!!! Fuck you logic games. They were all doable but I overcomplocated it and when I realized it...it was too late.

    In your unconfirmed section you list "-Teenage Morning Driving Accidents / School Start Times".

    I had two LR and can confirm that is real.

    @jennilynn89 we are in the same boat. LG is my strongest section and I feel like it was such a let down section. guessed on the water color section because i was just confused and tried to do the last game, I'm not even sure how well I did on it. I feel so bad overall and hope my LR sections and Rc section boosts my score.

    @jennilynn89 tell me about it.. someone said that there will be a generous curve to account for it, but I don't know what curve would be generous enough to account for totally screwing TWO GAMES. I doubt there's ever been such a curve

    @BreeBree it's so frustrating... I can't believe they threw two super hard games into that section. They were seriously ridiculous. It's been a while since I've been so stumped by a game....

    @Frostbyte I feel you... I screwed up both games, big time. @"Cant Get Right" Sorry to ask so many questions about the curve...but do you think they'd curve a single section, or do they take into account if it has easier sections that accompany it?
