for you savvy test takers...how'd you find the games in Oct?

Postby leap_your_bar » Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:28 pm

I just re did these badboys...I really thought they were manageable. I didnt miss a question on drivers, missed 2 on artifacts and runners and 3 on nurses on the real thing. I missed 6 re-doing them tonight (and after not seeing any LSAT material for almost a month now).

I thought they were really easy on the real thing but not so much after looking at them. Thoughts? They seem above average for the last 10 pts.

I re-did them a couple days ago. They were easy if you read carefully and didn't fall for the subtle traps LSAC laid out (reversal of old/new) and (day before rule). The only reason I did not like them is because they felt much more time consuming than the other games.

Not more difficult than usual. Scored pretty close to my average...took me almost the full time to complete the section but I didn't find it as challenging as the set from 57, or from some of the 20s.

I laughed when I saw both a rule and a question type that we had predicted would be on the test. Well, silently, so I wouldn't be a disturbance. But seriously, I did not have trouble except for a minor brain flub on drivers that was quickly fixed. Scored -1.

-1 because I forgot to bubble in one answer. Otherwise, I almost felt guilty for having such a low level logic games section.

I finished 7 minutes early and scored -3. My PT average was -1.

I'd say the games were easier than average.

I thought they were pretty easy because for every game you could "Identify the Templates" (LGB Lingo) and as long as you knew how to diagram correctly and didn't fall for the traps in the rules, you were good money. I went -1 and finished about 12 minutes early. I honestly don't know how I missed one, just carelessness and I missed it when I was checking back over.

-1. PT average is like -0.1, so I was kinda upset. They were easy though, I just made a stupid mistake.

-0'd the first 3 and -4'd the last one due to timing issue that stemmed from taking too long on one question in artifacts.

Overall nothing too tricky, I am confident that I would -0 it if I managed my time better.

-0 game 1, -1 game 2 ( totallly guessed on the if you take away rule 1 and all others remained the same, which answer would mean the same thing)
-3 on game three ( did this last ran out of time)
-1 game 4

Games on the October test were much easier than normal in my opinion.

The runner game was very similar to the game that involves Oaks, Tamaracks, Maples and Sycamores in a park in my opinion. None seemed to have very difficult deductions or tricky rules.

I almost got caught by the way the artifacts were ordered (for some reason I had read it as the reversal of what it was and had to rediagram which ate a ton of time). However I still finished with spare time and with a -1 score. Was pissed about that -1. Came from a stupid mistake on the driver question. I typically finished 0 or -1 on the games section and I really wanted 0 on test day.

Thought they were quite easy, finished with time to spare no guesses. But it turned out.... I did miss the very first quesiton of the section... and one more easy question on nurses. FML. :x

Same story. I thought they were very easy but games were my worst section. My mistakes had more to do with rushing/being in a hurry because it was game day rather then the games being hard. I would say they were probably the easiast in a long while.
