Poll for people with 2 RCs.

Postby longdaysjourney » Mon Oct 11, 2010 4:49 pm

I had two RCs and I can't remember which was which...the passages have all blended together in my mind. However, I do remember that one was distinctly easier than the other. I know this is super subjective, but if the poll is weighted very much toward one side or the other it might possibly be a good indicator.

So, for people who remember which was which, please indicate if you thought that the experimental was easier or harder.

In my case, definitely harder. It was the hardest section on the test for me and I was praying that it would turn out to be the experimental one.

I felt like the experimental RC was much harder. Especially the passages about ownership and Kant. After finishing both sections, I assumed that the easier one was experimental, so I was definitely happy to find out it was real.

Harder. Or at least it made me more uncomfortable about my answers. I was somewhat glad when I saw the second section was also RC. It meant there was a 50% chance I could improve. The Jazz/novels passage was a bit tricker than I thought, and the fingerprinting passage seemed to have some traps in there as well. For the life of me I cannot remember what the last 2 were about.

I was so used to doing PTs that had RC 3rd or last (I only did 4 section PTs) that I dont think my brain was ready for RC that early.

I thought the experimental RC was easier, but that may be because the real RC section was my first section of the morning. Having those 2 sections back to back, followed by another LR section before the break was brutal....

Easier, but according to my conversations with people I had the easy experimental RC (digital publishing, fingerprinting, Jazz).
Also, the tricky one on mine was in one of my major fields so it wasn't difficult for me.

I remember taking the experimental RC first and thinking, "Wow that was trickier than previous ones". I had the real one right after and thought it was relatively easier. I seemed to just easily breeze through the first 3 passages (not saying it was an easy section, just that it was easier in comparison).

Yeah the jazz and fingerprint ones had some tricky questions. I enjoyed reading 3/4 of the passages too, as well as the real section. Anyone else?

Yeah, I thought in general the passages were not quite as dull on this test. The biology angle that they went with on the language one was kind of (okay, VERY) familiar, but I think the other ones were at least somewhat interesting.

Assuming section 2 wasn't the real one, then that was harder. Had to bubble in B as the last two answers. I heard from my lsat class that this was in fact the experimental.

Yeah this is a tough poll to answer because there were 2 xpRC sections. One about property law and another one about jazz. Am I right?

I had the one with kant.... so it's pretty much decided that that was the "hard" experimental?

Property law and Kant, correct? Those were considered the two hardest passages in the experimentals I think.

I had a relatively simple one about digital publishing...none of the questions were difficult but I was really hungry while working on the passage so I probably didn't actually get them all right

Man, I loved the one on Kant. That entire RC section was significantly easier for me than the real one. I finished confidently with a few minutes left, while I guessed on the last two on the real one.

I got caught up in running out of time for 1 question on my first section (LR)
So it took me 1-2 mins to focus on section 2 (RC-real)
Section 3 - RC experimental but I had cooled down from stressing about LR1 so it started off smoother.

I had fingerprint/jazz/publishing experimental. It seemed to be of the same difficulty as the real RC (normal passages, tricky questions/ACs)

Harder, because of how they laid it out. The final passage had fewer questions, and was significantly easier than the rest, it kinda threw me, I knew ASAP it was exp though.

I had LR RC RC LR LG

I thought the experimental was easier and I think the order was real first and experimental second? Anyway, I had the passages about Kant and property rights. I got tripped up on the animal behavior passage on the real one.
