Hello Quidnuncs!

Short LR section (25 Q): easier than average
Long LR section (26 Q): on par; maybe slightly harder but probably not

Conclusion: slightly easier than average.

Generally agree. 2 was certainly tricker than the 1st. I found the 1st to be almost exceptionally easy.

This. I had LR first and I thought that was experimental until later on, because that LR was so easy. Then I got reamed by my actual experimental section.

What makes you think the first one wasn't the experimental?

Bc, I had a different type of exp section.

I agree with this, but LR2 was my last section so maybe it was just fatigue.

Usually after I finish a PT, I feel the least confident about LR. Not the case this time. Between my 2 LGs and RC, I can barely remember the LR sections because I thought the others were much more difficult.

+1 Same here.

LR on the test day can be kinda intense. :?

I had LR LG LR LR RC. I was having issues with my last LR section... I normally finish with 5+ minutes to go back and review (and normally miss no more than 2 per section), but I barely barely finished that section on time. :/

I had the same format, and I'm pretty sure that the second LR (with 24 questions) was experimental. I thought for sure it would've been the first one since it was so easy, but then the test would only have 100 questions (plus people here who had another experimental said that their LRs were 25 and 26 Qs).

that would be awesome, also i thought the exp section would always be harder than the other ones not easier, at least that's what i gathered from reading through other posts regarding previous exp sections.

I think you must be right. I had LG experimental, and LR1 was 25 questions and LR2 was 26 I believe.

I'm with you that the 25Q one was easier. I'd say the 26 was leaning towards slightly harder though. Or maybe it just seemed like that because the 25Q and the experimental (mine was LR) were both easier than this one.

LR LG LR LR RC here. The LR before the break was ridiculously easy. I finished 15 in 13 minutes, without marking a question for review, and the whole section in 29-30 minutes. I got to go to the bathroom before the 15-minute break bum rush 8) . Hopefully that was the real one, because the LR after the break was a lot more difficult.

This guy is a lover of LSAT and Mexican literature. He took it today, says what he thinks curve will be. Not sure if I agree or not. I thought it was a little harder than he did.

Quit spamming


Anyways, I agree that LR1 seemed exceptionally easy. I didn't pace myself whatsoever and I remember when I got to 17, I was like "woah already?" and then had 6 minutes left despite moving at a totally leisurely pace. I though RC felt about normal, but games killed me. But LR is my favorite section and RC is pretty much tied for being my best section. I'm queen game failure. :(

LG-LR-LG-RC-LR

I too found the 25Q LR to be exceptionally easy, but thought the 26Q LR was very difficult. I never have to deal with time constraints but the 5 minute warning was called when I had 7 questions left; I had to rush through a few and guess on 2. On balance, though, I thought the two LRs were about average.
