Are questions chronically arranged in order of difficulty?

Are LSAT questions in each section chronically arranged in order of least difficult to most difficult?

I've been observing that this may not be true for Logical Reasoning. But what have you been seeing with Logic Games and Reading Comprehension?

RC & LG are not ordered strictly by difficulty. But I do think there are some general patterns. Here's my take:

LG - 1st game is usually easiest, 2nd/3rd are usually hardest, 4th is usually easier than 2 and 3

RC - 1st passage is easiest, then a total crapshoot. Although if there's a ridiculously difficult passage, it usually appears 3rd or 4th.

Again this is a general pattern I observed.

Within a given game the first question is usually fairly straight forward, particularly on ordering games, and the last question often changes one of the rules which can be the most time consuming.

Yea IMO LG 3 is usually the hardest. If one is having trouble with timing, I'd do LG 4 before LG 3.

LR is easy until about 10. 11-15 can be tricky. 20-end are usually hard problems that take time. I'd advise doing it straight through.
