fucking invisible sculptures, or something.


There was a -9/-10 streak? I thought it was -10/-11. June '09 was -11, right? September was -10?

That was a harder version of the mulch/stones game.


What? I must have missed something on the mulch/stone game, because I don't think they were similar game types.


Perhaps I'm mistaken. I was going off of memory and that snakes game was one of the first I did when I started studying. I remember it had a limited number of cages and you had to fit the snakes and lizards in a certain order. You had like 5 snakes and 2 lizards if I recall, Male and Female among both.


Yeah but in snakes/lizards you have the ability to put more than one animal in a particular cage, and you can have empty cages.

to be honest, i'm not 100% sure. its been a while since i've even thought LSAT, but I remember that 170 always hovered around -10 for a while, -10/-11 certainly sounds right.

I may or may not have been using a little artistic liberty to make a point......but still, fuck that passage.

Noguchi killed me.

Also that damn brown dwarf question. I had to read it a thousand times and re-write all the answers into shorter sentences with diagrams to get it. I HATE double negatives.

Wow...it sounds like the mulch game was pretty easy.

Yeah honestly I thought the mulch game was very very easy. Only 2 variables, basic linear. It just threw a lot of people off and confused people for some reason, probably due to the stress/intensity of the test.

I enjoyed the Snakes Cages game. It was actually fun. I think because I figured it out. I got a sort of cognitive rush from. NO SUCH RUSH WITH MULCH :evil:

The easiest game I can ever remember was one about handing paintings on a wall, and LSAC even included a nice ready-made diagram.

Mulch seemed really intimidating at first but it ended up being fine. Snakes/lizards sounds like a nightmare. Cakewalk, invisible sculptures, and talk-story were the hardest RC passages for me. I thought remembering Maxine Hong Kingston from high school would be an advantage, but instead the RC passage just made me hate her even more.

RC noguchi/sculptures was pretty bad

hard LG = snakes and lizards

mulches was an easy game. the wording threw me off for a minute, probably b/c i had about 3.5 minutes to do that game and was freaking out/rush reading it over and over again. i feel like for LG you can't look at games individually, but rather gotta view them in their set of 4s. for games, i choose the game that has the most questions, and work downward to the one with the least number of questions. I did mulches last (which means it MUST have had the least number of questions in that set). that one difficult game sucked all my time, i had to whiz through mulches, and it probably cost me a question or two.

then again, this is true for RC, and LR too... lol. so i've said something pointless. blah, who cares.

As a mathematics major I found the fractals RC section super easy, but I'm sure a large part of that is because of my background. I did find the cake walk reading to be super hard though.

I enjoyed cake walk and despised fractals. I missed more questions on fractals than I have on any other RC Passage. I was deeply thankful it was a practice. But cake walk was fun and I missed zero. I thought it was somewhat interesting.

Anything visual or spatial makes me die a little inside.
