Wasn't the LR sections a little easy?

Postby PinkFloydPerson » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:12 am

Whats up with that? I am convinced that the LR sections were just...easy. Easier than any of the practice tests... and I did over 30. The LG / RC, though..

It's all relative. I found LR to be average overall (one harder section and one easier section), RC seemed very easy, and games seemed harder.

LR1 easy. LR2 Average. RC easy (except for transnationalism question). Games Average.

Games were easy, yet I still managed to misinterpret a rule luckily it only will cost me max 3 point damage. RC first 3 passages were easy. Last one, if I understood it, wouldn't have been too bad but I got the main point question right according to a friend so I just hope I didnt bomb the african passage.

the LR I got 4th was EASY, probably made a couple mistakes as I usually do on LR but Ive never been so confident after an LR section before. LR1, I got it first, I don't know if I needed time to warm up, but I needed all 35 minutes to get through. Not to mention the tricky questions within it. So overall easier LR, but still somewhat difficult if you get caught in traps easy

I thought the games were sort of easy. The LR was average. But for some reason, I had trouble with RC (the questions in the last passage were hard). RC is the only section I do not feel good about coming out of that test. But, I'm hoping the easiness of the other 3 sections can offset and major damage.

what did people think the difficult questions were on the transnationalism passage?

[quote="amkid100"]what did people think the difficult questions were on the transnationalism passage?[/quote
it has more to do with the answer choices than the question. The answers choices seemed similar to each, some being one word off/on for being considered the right answer. I am kinda bummed because I usually do pretty well on RC, and I may have gotten a few more wrong then I was hoping for. it may have been anxiety or stress. but if that was the case, I wouldn't feel well about the other sections (especially games which I got last).

I thought RC was average, passages maybe a bit denser than some of the PT but certainly doable.

I thought LR was so much easier than any of the PT's.

I thought games were as hard as some of the harder PT's. I stink at games, they are always my bad section, unless I happen to get several of the one type I'm good at (well, two types but there are never any circle ordering games anymore!) which, I didn't. So I thought LG were hard, but no harder than the hard PT's. Just hard for ME because that's not my strength. I guessed on at least 7 of them in that section. Ugh.

It's all relative... I moved methodically in LR, so I dunno if that meant that it was "easy" or if it was me answering the trap answer every time..

I don't think any LSAT section, except some of the games sections in the PT's from the high 40's were easy.

I had always struggled with LR, but I peaked right before the test. But this is teh section that I'm the worst at guaging how I did. I don't think any of us will know until the 29th. Its just so hard to stay off the forums

truth

I somehow timed the RC section wrong.. rushed through the first 3... when I hit 0 she calls "5 mins," and I had already rushed through the last passage. Killin me smalls. I guess I set my timer for 11:30 and not 11:25 :?:

LR's always been difficult to peg for me. I knew I'd blitz LG and probably fail at RC, but LR is the key to my score.

I went methodically as well, and am taking that as a good sign.
