Of course, the above is not an exhaustive list.
And if you want to argue with the LSAC about what constitutes cheating, be my guest. Just know that it ends with them being right, and you being unable to get into any semi-decent law school. And if you want to sue, I have yet to see any case where a LSAT cheater (or alleged LSAT cheater) was able to get any relief from the courts; there are a number of holdings finding LSAC can basically do what it likes regards to determining if misconduct has taken place.
I'm not saying to "[work] on or [read] the test during a time not authorized by the supervisor." In fact, I specifically admonished against that. What I am saying is there's some ambiguity in whether making changes to the answer sheet (in whatever section) during the time you are authorized to be working with the answer sheet (while maintaining the test booklet on the section you are authorized to be working in), is not a clear cut violation of the rules. And, EVEN IF it were, said rule is, in practice, unenforceable.
