Ah, so weird....

Postby srpaik » Thu May 13, 2010 12:42 am

I've been doing PTs for the past two months,

and I see that the recent tests are much more "difficult" than the past,

since ppl today do so better than ppl few years ago.

What I find so weird is that no matter the difficulty of each exam is,

I always get about 10 questions wrong.

For some tests, this leads me to get a score of 174,

but for some tests, the curve gives me a 168.

Anyone else have this kind of problem? I just hope that the June exam will be very difficult.

The LSAT is premised on the idea that each person has a true score.

Given a certain true score,

and individual is not expected to get that exact score every time;

rather, they are expected to fall reasonably close to that true score,

within 2.5 points about 70% of the time and withing 5 points about 95% of the time.

Given this, ranging from 168 to 174 is not at all abnormal.

Now that you're looking at someone else do it, do you hate having to read sentences broken up across lines?

:D I still think this way of writing is easier to read, at least for me..
