Difficulty is a relative thing.

So.. rather than discussing a change in difficulty of the questions by section, why not be more concerned with the breakdown of the test. The newer tests tend to have more RC questions than LGs by 1 or 2.. so the modern conclusion regarding the newer exams is that they don't differ significantly on average except a greater emphasis on RC.

Some people contend that the RC section is more difficult on recent tests, I don't believe it is. I feel older tests as well as new are the same in difficulty. Although some tests can have one section that is an absolute b*^&%. PT 36's games struck me as really difficult, while newer and older PT's I felt were easier.

What about LG? I think the games get significantly easier but get somewhat harder on the most recent tests.

I don't think certain games are significantly harder than others. Some days I can walk in and see what is classified as a hard game and nail it in 5-6 minutes. Other days I walk in and it takes me 16 because I am just not in the right state of mind. The same goes for RC. I can nail it some days and other days I can be piss poor. There is a certain zen mindset for the lsat. If you're in it, it's like being in the matrix or the bullet time in max payne. Other days if I'm not in that mindset I feel like I'm getting my teeth pulled or encumbered in mud.
