Which one of the 50s Preptests was the easiest?

Postby 77to101 » Sat Jan 09, 2010 4:13 am

I'm trying to line it up so I do the two easiest as my last two before the real test, to go in with a nice confidence boost. Is there any test in the 50s that is clear-cut harder than the rest and is there any that is clear-cut easier than the rest?

i guess one way to do this would be to just look at the curves and take the harder curves to be harder tests....personally, regardless of curves, i hated prep test 57 bc of those particular games.

I agree with the "checking the curves" thing. But I also think the answer partially depends on which section you are the best at and/or weakest at. Some of the tests have ever so slightly easier LG, while others are that way with LR or RC. On the whole though, I have this theory (that is probably entirely unfounded) that the curve in June tests is slightly rougher because that's when a lot of people take it who are on the ball and planning on applying on time. I didn't take the June one... but I don't think I did quite as well on the practice tests that came out in June.

I did best on 50, for what it's worth.

Does anyone have the scales handy, then? I ask this question because I vaguely remember people in the September and December LSAT prep threads coming to some sort of consensus on easy and hard tests in the 50s...

My totally subjective opinion is that 53 is the easiest and 57 the hardest, though not by a very big margin.

i also thought 53 was pretty easy. I think I might have bombed 50 though, because of the riddled basins passage. Don't quote me on that though, it was a long time ago.

would somebody who has all of the 50s tests be kind enough to post the scales? i know that 59 was -14 and 58 was -11, but what about the rest?

I thought 55 was the hardest, but I actually scored the best on that one out of any of the 50s (including my real one...agh).
