Which older RC and LR are most relevant?

Postby niederbomb » Tue Nov 30, 2010 6:00 am

I'd like to find some more RC and LR practice. I've already done PT 42-60 once and 49-60 twice. I typically can afford only -5 or -6 on the three reading sections combined to get to 170, and I've been achieving this often, but I need more drilling to feel secure.

Any idea which older RC and LR to focus on in the next 2 weeks? Someone suggested PT 5 LR was pretty tough, but I think it's easier than the recent ones.

So...0's?
...10's?
20's?
30's?

MCAT RC?

Which ones haven't you done before? The ones you haven't done will be 10x more relevant than any you have done before, and 100x more relevant than any non official LSAT RC's. The test has changed a little bit, but not that much.

As for RC and LR, I've done everything from 41-60 and a few in the 30's. Also, PT 7, 5, and a few in the 20's nearly a year ago.

I always get -1 or -0 on Pre-49 RC's. On the recent tests, my scores ranged from -1 (58, 55, 56, 53, 51) to -5 (PT 57) on that section. Usually about -2 or -3.

Just do all the 30's then, they might be slightly, slightly easier, but it's really nothing to worry about.

The RCs are pretty much all still relevant, I haven't noticed any change in the question types and the difficulty of the material depends on what interests you and how good of a reader you are.

If you need LR work from those older tests, none are particularly more or less relevant, just choose sections and go to work and the majority of the questions will be in the exact form of those you will see on test day.
