    What a fun session on RC today! Thanks guys.

    And Grant, reveal your 7Sage handle!

    Thanks for another great session today everyone! A take away from today: a gold standard in BR is to take the wrong answer choice that you had trouble with and change it to say what it should have said to be the right answer choice.

    For those of you on the call today, here's another good example of an age effect vs cohort effect flaw question:

    Question: Are the BR's conducted by JY recorded, so that for those of us that didn't attend can listen to how it should be done? I only ask as I'm not at the BR(ing) stage just yet in my studies, but once I make it there, I want to be sure to employ the 'Gold Standard'? Thanks.

    Problem is the curve is -9, so you can't afford to bomb the RC, even if it is harder than most.

    Just took 81. @twssmith Why did I not skip that passage?? Your'e talking about the second one right. Man, putting it as the first section. I didn't think the other three passages were that terrible but I think I messed up by not skipping it.

    Question for all - are we supposed to do BR per usual before joining in? Like not checking the correct answers and writing out all our explanations etc?

    BTW, I challenged LSAC on the treadmill question. If anyone is interested in seeing my question and their response, PM me.

  • OlamHafuchOlamHafuch Alum Member

    I also challenged them about one of questions in the dowsing passage.

    Yes, BRing on your own before joining in is helpful. Just do what you normally do before a BR call.

    @tuc28290 No, they're not recorded.

    Hey, so I am printing PT 81 from the LSAC website since I took it this past June. Because of this, I'm unsure of which LR section is which. There was one that was 25 questions and one with 26 questions. Which one is section 2 and which one is section 3 according to session schedule that J.Y. posted?

  • OlamHafuchOlamHafuch Alum Member
    2326 karma

    Section 2 has 25 questions.

    Section 2 actually had 26 questions. First question about the marsupial.

  • OlamHafuchOlamHafuch Alum Member

    I stand corrected. I looked at it quickly and didn't see the 26th question there.

    This test was stupid hard. LR and LG wasn't that bad but i did worse on RC than I've done since the damn diagnostic. I would have cancelled my score as soon as i left that facility had i taken this in june . the -9 didn't help either

    Is it possible to just sit in on the BR session and not participate? I've never been to a session before and would like to get the gist of the session first

    It's actually 7:30 EDT. I believe every session begins at 7:30 ET. JY updates the info for the next session in his original post after every session so you can see too.
