Which are the hardest LG / RC PT 50-57?

Postby JJDancer » Wed Sep 29, 2010 6:49 pm

Which LG (full sections) or particular games are hardest between PT 50 - 57?
Sept 2006 - June 2009
(besides dinos)

Same with hardest RC (passages or overall sections) between PT 50 - 57?

Thanks.

Seriously? No responses? It doesn't have to be the hardest just those that are considered harder.

I'm remembering PT 50 - riddled basins
PT 54 - groupthink

Which PT was willa cather and fractals? 57?

Yes, cather and fractals are 57. Mauve dinosaurs are also.

On RC its a tie between 57 (the fractal was straight brutal) and 55. 9 out of my 11 misses on PT 55 were on RC!

Found my PTs from a year ago and I'm deciding to do
RC from PT 50, 53-57
LG PT 53, 56, and 57 based on scores.

Thanks. Looked back and it seems I missed 4 on PT 55 RC.

Willa Cather wasn't so bad. You just had to do a little literary criticism, lol, which may or may not work depending on your background. Fractals ate my brain.

Thanks. I usually enjoy literary criticism but perhaps not during the LSAT because when I took 57 a year ago I missed 4 on the Willa passage. 6 overall on RC. OUCH.

Weird. I found PT 57's RC to be very easy. I found PT 56 to be difficult, especially the Kinship Recognition passage. PT 50 had the most difficult of all, with the Riddled Basins.

Yes, cather and fractals are 57. Mauve dinosaurs are also.


mauve dinosaurs are a joke. not being cocky here, but really that's the hardest?

I got -5 on RC when I took Sep09 (57) last year. I continually miss more than this which makes no sense - i've taken over 25 PTs in this span....

I thought Mauve dinosaurs wasn't that bad... I wouldn't call it a joke but it wasn't as hard as everyone builds it up to be...

Yeah, I was also expecting it to be a lot harder, after all the things I'd heard about it.

I got killed scorewise by Kinship (56). ugh
And maybe it's my science background, but I thought strawberry mites was only the 3rd most difficult passage of 53...

Still have 54/57-59 to go, and considering RC is my weakest section, you guys are scaring me about 57 haha.

The RC in 57 wasn't that bad. I got -1 on it, when on other previous 50s tests I'd gotten like -3 or -4. Don't be scared! I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck!

if i could get -0 on RC, I'd have a 180 locked in.... but I'm not going to get -0 on RC.

My first diagnostic was the dino game PT. I remember getting all of the Dino game correct and just flooring it in like 5 minutes. I missed 3 in the section in other parts though.

LOL I just love fractals and chaos theory and in fact that was one of the RCs that I really enjoyed.

I hate the rise in difficulty level in RC. It was more common than not for me to score around -0 in the earlier tests for RC. Now I'm around a -2. That is obviously detrimental to my score as a whole :(.

Yea the increased difficulty in RC is definitely screwing me. While Ive dramatically improved on LR and LG, LG especially, RC continues to drag my score down.

My worst ever on RC: -6 on PT 55. 5 of those came from the Willa Cather passage, only one from fractals.

Also, -2 RC on PT 53, -4 PT 51, -3 PT 52, -3 RC on PT 57, and -1 RC on June 2007.

Before I started the 50's, I counted on -1 or -0 on RC. Not any more.

I have a liberal arts background, but on the newer tests, I've noticed that most of the RC questions I miss come from diversity passages.

Maybe it's because I grew up in the South. lol

Any way I can find a list of these to do all of them in the next week?

RC definitely gets harder on the more recent tests. It's throwing all sorts of crap onto my rolling average right now...

It makes me so glad to know that fractals passage pissed off more than just myself.
