Preptest 45 - level of difficulty?

Postby gambelda » Mon Dec 06, 2010 10:22 pm

I went -6 LR (had a large number of distractions, one where I actually had to pause my timer for about 20 minutes to finish other things, then return to it)

-4 RC
-1 LG
-1 LR

171. This is my second 171 score and only 2nd time breaking 170. Wondering if this test was just easier compared to others based on other TLSers results.

The LG was really easy, RC easy (save for the Hippocratic Oath, which was quite difficult) and LR was average. You missed 4 on RC, I'd be curious to know the distributions...

PT 45 is the easiest PT in history, approached only by PT 47 and PT 48.

RC=easy, easy, easy. LG=laughably easy. LR=average.

The main difference is PT 45 has a much more generous curve than the latter two.

I scored a 179 on PT 45, and I just scored a 168 on PT 57 and a 170 on PT 61, if that's any comparison.

hahaha nice. The only two tests I've scored above 170 on were 47 and 45. Not a great confidence builder when you need a 170. I scored a 168 on PT 59.

My RC score was -1 hypocratic oath, -3 on last RC passage (thanks to time - spent too much on the oath one and had to scramble last minte to finish last passage)

Then come take the Asia test.

In October, we had the February 2005 LSAT, which came between PT 45 and PT 46. I wish I hadn't had such a meltdown because it's pretty hard to get that kind of luck on the LSAT. :P
