What type of the Paper is the LSAT on?

Postby neonx » Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:35 pm

This is completely ridiculous... I know. But is the actual LSAT on flimsy, almost-translucent, likely-to-tear paper? I am used to the paper used on the separate Prep Tests.

Yeah, this can definitely be an issue. You can prepare for this though, do all your practice work on very flimsy toilet paper. Make answer keys on the toilet paper so that you're actually filling in bubbles. This is probably worth 2-3 questions on test day. Always replicate test conditions whenever possible.

For every third PT (but only those numbered evenly) I've been doing the second and fourth logic game on a single square of toilet paper because such little space is given on the actual test. I alternate between Charmin and Scott so I don't become too set in my ways and unable to adjust to test day variations.

This is all solid advice. Will definitely consider it.

It is on rather thin paper. Enough that you can see what type of section the next section will be because it's somewhat translucent.

Will there be tape tearing involved to proceed to the next section?

This is true. And the only redeeming quality of the terrible paper.

Same paper as the necronomicon. Remember, before you open the exam, say these words three...

Klaatu....barada....Nikto

Do all your practice sections on used toilet paper.

Some times the test materials actually come with traces of bodily fluid on them.

This is gross. I am kidding.
