Experimental RC was HARD

Postby JesusChrist » Sat Oct 09, 2010 5:38 pm

That experimental RC was so hard, that I kept thinking about it until section 4. It really threw me off. I was struggling with the LG and still thinking about that experimental, didn't even finish LG. I feel a retake coming up.

My experimental section was LG...i was relieved since it is my strongest section. LR wasn't as bad as I thought it would have been. However, the first passage was tough!

I honestly felt that both RC's were easy and RC is my toughest section. However, I had happened to have graduate papers on four of the eight topics :)

I remember reading about these incredibly lucky people, who'd get sections on topics they know, and I'd be so jealous. Well, it was me - this time. Don't worry, though, I still choked on LG :(

Same boat as you, Juris. My graduate degree is in music, so I thought XPRC was easy, even though RC is my worst.

Didn't think the real RC was terribly difficult either.

There was one RC section that discussed the why/why not chimpanzees have human social cues. they performed 3 experiments- focused on dogs, canids, etc.

That same section also had a passage about property rights-- how to properly classify a property owner's rights. the different methods. they discussed an agenda-method.

This was my RC2:
RC RC LR LG LR

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

I found that property law one especially hard. Although it might have been because i was trying to speed through it to keep on track. Huh, guess it was just me.

I was hoping I'd get a LG section. It's my best section too. On top of that, LG sections don't even feel tedious to me. I actually enjoy the games.

I had RC RC LR LG LR

Of the two RC's (if you had them as the first two) which one was experimental. I did way better on the 2nd of the two but I cant really remember which passage belonged to which... If anyone can help, Id appreciate it

I had the same order, and it appears that the 2nd RC was the experimental on mine, which is good because I struggled with it. The real RC was the one with the UN Human Rights, and the comparative reading about animals' communication.

JEALOUS!! RC is usually my weakest but 3 out of 4 passages were topics that were quite interesting...

yea the experimental RC was definitely harder... I was so happy when i found out that it was experimental.

I had
- chimapanzee
- fingerprinting (comparative passage)
- jazz/novel
- Kant morality i think.

LR - RC - RC - LR - LG and 1st RC was experimental

Does everyone get the same 4 experimental passages?
I don't quite remember property stuffs....

So for people who had rc rc lr games lr, the second rc was always the experiential, correct? Or are their cases of the first rc being the experimental also?

What makes the RC comparative passage so easy was that it was almost an exact template of the Comparative one in PT60 I had done the morning of the test. I guess LSAC is running out of ideas about things to test us on lol.

longday: the post above you indicates its not always the case.
I really wish I knew.
I had RC RC LR LG LR and didn't quite finish the first RC, bubbled in 3 C's at the end without reading the questions. Whereas the rest of the test I feel pretty decent about, If I knew which was which I would consider cancelling. I can't remember which passages were from which because they all ran together but I THINK my first section may have been the experimental.

After much deliberation, my real one was first. They all blurred together and I thought I remember doing the african american shit last. But I may have been mistaken, just like they guy who said he cooked grits quickly.
