PT 1-20 LG vs recent LG

Postby niederbomb » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:52 am

I'm retaking the LSAT and need fresh material for LG, so I've been working through PT 1-20.

Are these games harder or easier than recent games? After PT 6, they've started to seem ridiculously easy. I'm not sure if that's because I've suddenly improved or because they are, in fact, easier than other games.

I seem to just fly through the questions after making the key inferences; I do not remember that happening on the recent 50-60 LG when I did them for the first time.

Some of them are easier, but there are also a higher proportion of funky set up ones, imho. Also, they probably seem easier because you're getting better. I thought the 30's LG were terrible and the 50's were easy, but at the end of my prep I looked at the first ones I'd done and lol'ed at how I thought they were SO HARD. ^_^

You could try setting a time limit of 6:30 or 7:00 for each game if you want to make the practice more helpful.

Yeah, I've been doing 30-minute sections for LG and 28-minute sections for LR and RC because I had time trouble in October.

I might be getting better, which is about time since I was SO BAD at LG for a long time (+6 on diagnostic), probably -5 or -6 in October.

Hard vs. easy may not be the best axis of comparison here. They're certainly [i]different/i] in the early days. Weird diagrams and (especially) weird rules are much more common in the lower-numbered tests than in the higher-numbered ones. Once you get used to the weirdness, though, they may end up being roughly the same difficulty level (or maybe even slightly easier) than the recent ones.
