Princeton Review Arguments

Postby bjn31089 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 6:16 pm

Are the Princeton Review arguments known to be harder than the actual test? On old LSATs I answer around 75% of the args correctly where on Princeton Review I'm getting about 50% correct.

There are plenty of preptest out there. Only use the real thing. Abandon the Princeton Review.

+1, with a slight caveat.

PR supposedly uses only real, actual LSAT Qs in their prep books. So for what is worth I would think PR's Qs would be about on par.

As above poster mentioned, PR uses real LSAT questions. Obviously then, there is no discrepancy in difficulty. However, it's possible that PR has arranged the questions that you're practicing on in a manner that includes more hard questions than the average PT.

Actually just read the first couple pages of the book which stated the questions in the book are far more difficult than the usual grouping on the LSATs. Thanks.

The OP is working from Cracking the LSAT (sold in bookstores), which uses simulated LSAT questions, as opposed to our real course materials (only given to course students), which use real LSAT questions. That may have caused some of the confusion here.
