I remember nothing and got a 92% on the prep test, i remember more from the prep test, probably because i pushed myself to work a little faster on the real lsat, you may be the same way.

It doesn't matter if you can remember the details. In Oct, the discussions of the questions were a lot more frequent and detailed than for this test. There was more to remind you of the questions back then. For this test, things have been a lot more chill.

Try thinking of each section as a whole and how you felt while you were taking them. That should give you a better idea of how you did.

An optimistic position would be that you found the questions relatively easy to answer/think through overall, so none really stuck out, so you therefore don't remember them.

I'd say don't sweat it.

If it helps you out a buddy and myself retook in October. Afterward we were talking about the LSAT and we were both in disbelief on the vast amount of questions we couldn't remember. I mean this was right after the test and tons of LR and games we forgot.

In the end we both ended up substantially better than June. I can't say the same will happen to you, but I don't think its necessarily a bad sign.

that does make me feel a tad bit better. as you for telling me not to sweat it, i appreciate it, but you dont know how i am hahahahahaha. I'm comparing my feelings about this test to my feelings in Oct. (All I know is that in Oct, I went to my campus' fall carnival afterwards and rode the scrambler 10 times. This time, i came home and cried to a floormate)

After the Dec LSAT, I went to the nearest church and threw bricks through their stained glass windows. Anyone else?

I never remember questions. When my dad asked me what the RC passage topics were, I blanked.

I still have no idea what people are talking about with the "utilities" LG, but I know I nailed it. So put one in the pro column.

If you remember the questions after the test, there's a decent chance that you were still thinking about the questions after you were done with them (e.g. in section 2 you were still fixating on questions from section 1, either consciously or unconsciously). So it's probably for the best that you don't remember anything.

At least, that's what I used to tell myself when I took a test and couldn't remember a single question afterwards. Until I started practicing remembering questions, I couldn't remember anything.

I can't even remember what G4 was about, but since everyone has said it was easy, and I remember finishing that game feeling confident, I feel good overall.

Just because someone remembers all the questions doesn't mean they're getting a perfect score. Relax. There's nothing to do but get drunk and play video games until our scores come out :)

i dunno...I'm trying every which way to think I did better on this one than oct. The entire test is a blur--except that i moved from question to question...focusing on one question at a time. All i remember.

It occurred to me that it might be worthwhile to add a pop post-test that asks things like: how many questions total? Name three LR. Describe one RC. Etc. That kind of post-test would highlight skills that are useful for real lawyers vs the test content itself, which works as a screen but doesn't adequately address the abilities required to practice law.

I'd flunk that post-test, though, as I don't remember much of anything from the test...it's mostly a haze. Except for stained glass.

I only remember questions that gave me a genuinely hard time, so if I don't remember many questions, I'd personally take it as a good sign.

This is a good post because I feel the same way. I don't remember ANY of the test. I only remember a question about sun screen. In fact, the entire time from when I woke up until I finally left my testing center is a blur. I think I had so much adrenaline going that day. I remember driving home from the testing center with enough energy to take another full test.

I have no idea what my score was. As I wait for my score, I'm not nervous. But more excited, if anything.

I remembered the test word for word in October, but i knew I should cancel. This time, i don't remember a thing. but I KNOW I did better.

Even in practice lately, I haven't been remembering the actual scenarios, just the logic and/or first letters of each (in LG).

Be happy you don't remember. IMHO - Memory of question means emotional connection to it! IE You couldn't find the answer and associated it with pain. Any coincidence we can all remember the Stained Glass word for word, but utilities...what?

Or maybe the question was so difficult our mind's defense mechanisms suppressed it from our memories :shock:
