Guessing Strategy...?

Postby MSachmorov » Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:26 am

Hello,
At the end of the bibles it has the statistics for every answer choice and it says what has the highest probability of being correct if you have to guess based on all the released LSAT exams. My question is: should you guess the same letter throughout the ENTIRE exam, or is it relative to each section? Like do you have a statistically higher chance of getting more right of you choose "D" as your letter of the day and use it throughout the exam? Or does this guessing strategy only apply to each section independently?

If you are guessing w/o looking at the problem at all, it's best to guess "D" since D has statistically been the CR slightly - very slightly - more often than the other choices.

EDIT:
And yes, it would be best to guess "D" for all the questions where you are guessing in this way. Realistically, it probably will not give you any sort of substantial advantage over blindly bubbling an answer - but if you're going to guess, you might as well have the odds - however slight - on your side.

If you are a good test taker the most accurate way to guess is to look for disproportionately underrepresented letters in your answers. For example: if you only have four A's but five or six of the other letters, you're best to go with A.

*The conclusion follows logically if which of the following is assumed* :lol:
Well yeah, assuming all the answers you previously selected are correct.
