Speculation about the Saturday Exam

Postby Er6297 » Thu Oct 07, 2010 11:05 am

So 48 hours till the LSAT and I noticed that not many people are making outlandish claims about what is going to be on the exam. So just for fun I decided to start the thread.

My guesses for Games

1 Standard Sequencing
1 IN/Out game
1 Grouping Linear Combination game
1 Advanced Linear game

Also I bet they put at least one of those new substitute questions on games

For Reading Comp
I pray that there are no Music Passages
Maybe a little 90’s throwbacks with a Native American Legal Passage
Valdez was the Humanities passage on PT60 and Noguchi was on pt59 so maybe they will go in the direction of African Americans or Suffrage on this one

For the rest I really have no idea. Feel free to post your ideas

The games section will have three medium-hard difficulty games, and one easy-medium game. A lot of takers are going to panic when they get the 5 minute warning while on the last question... of the third game.

LR is going to be standard, except one section is going to have three parallel reasoning questions (one flaw, two regular). Two of them will be ridiculously long.

Reading comp will include one passage written from the mid-nineties that talks about the revolutionizing new "Internet"

Science passages:
53. Strawberry pests (biology)
55: [DUAL] Loosestrife (biology)
56: Kinship (biology)
57: Fractals (math)
58: Nigerian dude and parallel computing (compsci)
59: [DUAL] Parallel computing and ants/climate (compsci)
60: [DUAL] Honeybee dances (biology)

I really hope this recent trend toward computing passages does NOT hold. Went -2 on both...
I'm sensing we're either overdue for a barrage of biology, or possibly a move toward physics/math side of things. I'm guessing the dual passage will be probably the sort of law-related type one.

There wasn't a single grouping game on PT 60, so I'm pretty sure there will be at least one grouping game on this test.

I'm all for sequence games on the Oct 9 LSAT

How many formal logic games do you guys think you be in the LR sections?

i predict curve will be -11 or -12.

i'd like it to be more generous, though.
