Feb 2011 LSAT: which section was the hardest for you?

Postby Prime12 » Sat Feb 12, 2011 6:59 pm

Just curious.

For me... the 26 questions LR was the hardest.

And let's keep the poll open by not discussing any specifics.

I'd pick both RC and LG if I could -- ran out of time and blind guessed four questions on each. That's never happened to me before, especially on LG which has always been my easy section.

I thought everything was fine... Till I got LG at the end. Then I died, literally.

I thought this was had pretty evenly distributed difficulty, but I thought the sunken ships RC was pretty tough, so I'll go with that section. Last question on LG was very difficult for me, as well. Otherwise, felt good on games which is my weakest section, so I felt great overall.

Interesting... I thought LG and RC on this test was fairly average (at least compared to the most recent tests).

I actually thought the RC was easier on this test than has been the trend lately......then again I thought so in October too and still missed four.... I thought the LR was very manageable and the games weren't all that bad either.....thats why I fear a tight curve...

I thought the RC was somewhat difficult. The LG was not too bad. I had a tough time with the 2nd LR section. One of them was significantly harder than the other two.

Not sure which LR it was but it was the 2nd one, and I also thought RC was the easiest I've personally done on test day, and I do HORRIBLE on RCs.

IMO, it wasn't so much that RC and LG was 'hard' per se, just that I got crunched on time (had to guess some on LG, which was weird because LG is my strong point).

Personally, I got OWNED by LR. :(

I got crushed on LG somehow. I totally stumbled and fell on the grouping game and basically blind guessed on 3 questions.

I also did NOT feel good about the 26 question LR.

I basically did not feel good about the test at all, probably because of how the October test pwned me.

SIGH.

Not sure if I should cancel.

It seems that there is no concensus, people are all over the map on this one. That seems unusual.

LG - I can do every game in every practice test I try, but it always takes me longer than required. So, it has to be just the right set of games for me to do well in a real test. Like December, I really struggled on this set. However, the LR and RC sections seemed to be the easiest I have ever seen, though there were some really close calls that make it impossible for me to know whether I missed 3 on each section or slightly more.

I hate the LSAT and I hate the games section. Can anyone explain what solving a snow plow question in 8.5 minutes has to do with becoming a good lawyer? Or, is there a thread or forum where people who really want to kill the lsat exchange ideas?

I voted for RC because there were 2 or 3 questions that felt like a coin toss, but the rest of it wasn't that bad. I will say I'm really surprised to see people saying LG was worse than December's...I still have nightmares about conference rooms with wall-to-wall stained glass windows. The only thing on this test besides RC that had some hiccups for me was the 26 question LR. But I also had to pee and I can't remember a single question off it, hence my vote for RC. I must say I'm surprised there aren't more votes for it, UNESCO was particularly nasty.

Sigh. Without going into too much detail, I'm pretty sure it's one of my worst performances on LG; yes, worse than PT 62, which I thought was better than this. IMHO anyway. Hopefully that wasn't too detailed.

Very, very disappointing.

Well... start studying for June in a couple of weeks, I guess.


I had a similar feeling when I saw that my fourth section was a second LG. I know I did well in the first LG and immediately panicked, knowing the second would be harder. And it was. Although I don't think it was nearly as difficult as Dec, which nearly did me in.

I had to blind guess on three also, but that's because the proctor's phone rang and it totally threw me off. He fumbled around in his coat for probably 30 seconds before finding it and shutting the stupid thing off. Then it took me another minute or so to refocus and get back into the game. I was pissed.

But overall, I know I did better this time around.

I voted for the LR (26 questions) but now that I have time to reflect it might be a tie between that and the RC...although, RC has always been a toss up for me so I'm never completely confident about that section.

Good luck to everyone!!

I felt great after the first games section. Which employee can wear the badge? Please...

Then the second games section came...snow plows...wtf!

It was like walking into a buzz saw after feeling as though I nailed it.

I would have racked up some serious points if the first games section was the real deal. But at least it had me floating on cloud9 for a while. Maybe the curve will make up for it...oy
