^^Yes. Normally when you do a games section there are at least a handful of questions that you can instantly answer right off the bat just by doing a proper setup and making the major inferences. I don't remember seeing _any_ on the first LG game, which is normally all about those. Every question required a hypo diagram or super-deep inference. Anyway, if/when I take the test again I'm focusing on games preparation almost exclusively, with maybe a few RC just to keep my speed up.

I like practicing the games but I hate the fact that I cannot do them fast enough. I feel like it's the most artificial test of lawyering ability of the 3 sections.

but I'm seriously asking this question.


I guessed about five or six D's in the last section of the first game, so I'm curious about this as well.

Was really hoping section # 3 Games was real.......Damn!

For those who cancel, I wonder if their score is considered in the curve.

I totally bombed on the 1st LG and I rocked the 2nd one ... I hope you are all wrong and really really really hope the 1st LG was experimental!!!! If not I am totally going to have to retake!! :(

I also had two sections of LG. My sequesnce was: LG1 AR1 LG2 AR2 Comp was the experimental from the December test. The LG1 was easier than that of LG2. I had one ordering section in LG1 and the rest was all pairing with multiple pairs of elements...including in LG2. LG2 ate me alive. I hope that there's a lot of C answers in there...cuz I just straight guessed...

Anyone else have the same problem? :cry:

when people dont realize AR=LG, and then say, I had trouble with the test, I dont feel bad. Again, its RC (Reading comp with the passages), LR (Short passages), AR (analytical reasoning also known as logic games). The test you just described would be crazy hard (and also one section short)



I have no idea why people think in-out games are hard. The inference is always the same! If you know one, you know them all. It always tells you need AT LEAST some number (say, 3), then offers a list of exclusions. Have the questions say, if this is in, what else can be in, and all you have to do is see which of the options doesn't rule out too many other options. Is that so bad? I usually cover up things with my pencil/fingers and just work these out pretty quick. I think if you dont focus on the key question of getting the minimum number in the group they are super super super easy (ok, maybe the first one i did was hard, but they are all isomorphisms of that first one i did so i can do them all now)

Hiking trails felt a lot like birds in the forest from PT 33. Undefined in-out grouping game. I'm usually pretty good at those, but this one was very tough. If I had to redo the game right now at home with no pressure I could probably get it done in 10 minutes. But during the test, seeing the minutes drift away while you're trying to figure out which trees are in and which ones are out -- it was no use. I had to guess on two of those and move on.

I finished the counted LG section with ample time remaining. Diagrammed the first game (skipped the questions because I wanted to warm up on an easier game), looked over the second game (really didn't appeal to me at the time), decided to hop straight to the forth game (completed with little emotion), jumped back to the third game (smoke began to spew out of my ears). Flipped over the score sheet, did the double bubble signature raise the hand see ya later.

Actually, the the juicer/mixer and that other game about the plays weren't exactly straight-forward IN/OUT. They were far more complex than just in-out games. (A bit of advanced linear, which was shocking because as I have said before -- we don't see much of this in any PT 46 and higher). This has been discussed in that other long thread about the test.


xxxx/xxxx was not in and out game.

i had only ONE logic games section, so im guessing thats real XD

I don't remember much of it, since it was the only section that actually raped me pretty hard. I thought it was cause I got cocky after the insanely easy LR section, but this thread makes me feel a little bit better :P.

MY LG section had someting on rotisseries and mixers, some random hybrid game.

Anyone wanna tell me the answers for 5 (last q in game 1), 22, and 23? had to do educated guess for 5, rusehd 23, and guessed 22. The time eating questions on this test were quite brutal.

How did LG go for you guys? The consensus I get is pretty much everyone got burned.

You're wrong


After 2000 posts you think you'd be past the LSAT by now.

yes I felt the same

I had

LG- (reallly hard) about

terms, very easy, it was 4 classes each term.
not hard to figure out,
but very time consuming since you had to figure out numercial distributions
and unclear wording
since it had dual option blocks.

2nd one was very easy well, in/out park game.

3rd oen tooo hard (spent too much time tryign to deciper about juicer/mixers/ect)
oo hard
4rth one was sequencing but ran out of tiem :(

2nd for me was LR- not difficult
3rd for me was LG - experiment- very easy
too easy to count.

4rth was back to RC- very easy except last passage on hierophglyphics and ancient language structures tough one.

5th- breezed right through this LR


I'm hoping for a 155, got a 150 in december 09

so the real section had hiking/juicer and what other games? does anyone remember which ones were together in which sections?? I remember all of the games but it was such a blur that I can't recall which ones went together...

Well, if the mixer section was legit, my test broke down into:

1. LG(exp); 2. LR; 3. LG(real); 4. LR; 5. RC

I thought one LR section was easy and the other pretty difficult. I thought the first LG was easy and the second much more difficult. I thought the RC was difficult, especially a few questions on the videotape testimony questions.

That's what I had too. I thought the first LG was easy with the exception of the apartment/dog owner game, I never got that one. I am sure I missed something that would have made it easy. I thought both LR weren't too bad, maybe 5 total questions made me really think (shipworms, land/technology, and a few more). I thought the RC passages weren't too bad, but some of the questions were weird and I had to read them more than once. In Dec. 08 I got 7 wrong for RC (they had some scientific tadpole or something passage), so hopefully I did a little better this time.
I am a little worried that I thought the LR was so easy, I guess I have done soooo many practice tests and read throught the LR Bible so many times, I just felt like I had seen those questions before.
Oh well, three weeks of waiting will go very sloooowly. I really just want a 160 (got a 155 last time), and I think I did do 5 points better.

Plenty of people. Myself included. Mine went LR,LG,LR,RC,LR. I think the only variable is what section you had 3rd, as that was the exp

i did get owned by LG bc i choked, but it wasn't bc they were actually particularly hard; it was that i didn't make some obvious inferences.

i realized this while i was meditating yesterday - of course my mind went back to the games section, and i made the inferences i didn't make on the exam, and they weren't hard inferences.....so i got owned by LG, and it was totally my fault (not bc LG was unusually difficult, unfortunately)

Did you find the first experimental RC extremely easy???? I was so pissed to find out that it was not the real RC

Hey guys,

I have a question for you.

I'm not breaking any rules by saying this I'm hoping, but was the real LG consisting of a game (Game #3) that had two distinct groups (1 and 2)?

I would like to know.
I think generally people had shifting of LGs. I think my second LG was real not the first!

is that what december had? thats crazy awesome!!



anyways...
so I have an average on about 30 tests of a 180 and I got owned by the LG on this test. Im pretty pissed about it.

The people who keep saying it was easy, just time consuming, I dont think get what we mean by 'hard'.
If it takes so long that you struggle to finish or dont have enough time to feel confident about an answer that makes it 'hard'.
I thought it was hard because 1. some of the questions felt out of the blue, I'd never seen them before (I think I've seen the replace a rule like once before maybe) and 2. I felt insanely pressed for time. On my first section when they called 5 minutes I almost raised my hand to protest that they clearly only gave us 30 minutes :(


So you made a 180 on 30 prep tests that you timed and scored honestly and accurately? I'm gonna step out on a limb here and call BS.
