What Section do you like starting with?

Postby NJcollegestudent » Wed Jul 28, 2010 11:46 am

I like having the first section as logic reasoning, rather than the games or reading. What does everyone else think?

Normally I like to start with games. I think it's easier to get into games mode than LR or RC mode, so it's an easier transition from idleness to the test.

Some proptips from a guy that's taken the LSAT...

you should get to a point where you actually aren't favoring one section over another. you like them or dislike them equally. you also shouldn't *hope* to have a certain ordering sections or feel that your performance relies upon having a games or any other section section to allow you to rest between reading-intensive sections.


just a helpful tip

Very, very true. I didn't realize how much I was depending on having an extra LG - and having an LG sometime before the break - until I actually took the test. LR RC LR LR LG . I nearly died.

Reading comprehension because its the worst. I'm praying that I get the easy RC from June's experimental on my October test.

Games first is the best, and if I could have games at 4th again, it would make my day. Hopefully I'll get an experimental LG.

No matter how much I tried to get used to all three equally, I always liked LR first. I did substantially better on RC and LG if I did them in section two or later.

when you finally are set to take the LSAT, you really shouldn't be that nervous because you'll feel (legitimately, I hope) prepared. that's when you know you're ready to slay the beast.

RC. My average is 4-5 points higher than usual when RC comes first. I HATE LG first...i experience the greatest amount of fluctuation in LG (-6 to -8 to -14 sometimes) so it throws me off for the rest of the test if I tank.
