LR 2 Easier than LR 1?

Postby FarewellLsat » Tue Jun 07, 2011 10:09 am

Did anyone else find LR 2 EASIER than LR 1? I had LG, LR, LG, RC, LR. I started the test very nervous and remember thinking that the first LR section was a bit difficult and even the first question throwing me off. I thought LR 2 was easier, but the fact that everybody is saying otherwise worries me and makes me think I screwed up. Perhaps I was overly worried at first and overly confident at the end, for a totally non-realistic take in both sections.

There's no LR2 and LR1. There was a 26-question brutal LR and a 25-question easier LR. The order in which you got them is random.

I don't recall which one had 25 or 26. For those who followed the LG, LR, LG, RC, LR format, it wasn't uniform how the LR's were placed?

For those with LR LG LR .. LR RC im assuming the middle LR was the experimental. The first one was 25Qs and the last one was 26Qs?

Can someone confirm this?

I had LG LR LG RC LR as well. I had the 25 Q section first and the 26 Q section after, but I am not sure if that is universal.

I found the 26 Q section strange. I breezed through the first 13 or so questions in about ten minutes, but then got completely bogged down and was scrambling to finish the last couple of questions. Maybe my brain has just started to melt at that point in the exam.

I was the opposite. I think my mind was so drained after that tough RC section that I had trouble bringing it back. I typically finish the first 12-13 questions in 10-12 minutes but was probably a little over 15 this time (I also forgot to start my watch at the beginning of the section) and had to push the pace a little down the stretch which I'm not accustomed to doing. I felt pretty confident about the accuracy at the time but you just never can know.

I had LR(25)/LG/LR(25)/LR(26)/RC

I'm pretty sure the 3d section was experimental because it was impossibly easy. By far the easiest LR I have ever taken. The first section was easier/on par with the last couple of PTs, and the last (26 questions) was actually quite difficult in the 20s. A lot of questions were parallel argument questions, which are the most time consuming.

I too had LG,LR,LG RC, LR ....the RC was such a drag for me, the first LR was 25 questions and had 5 minutes left with 4 questions remaining...i'm usually perfect on timing. I found the first couple questions as curve balls! I dont know if my focus wasn't just there yet or what but the first LR was much tougher than the second.

definitely +1.

I finished the first 13 questions on 26Q LR in about 12 minutes, but found myself w/ 5 minutes left and the last 5 to go. Some of the questions were definitely oddballs but glad im not the only one who thought this.

The 26 was definitely harder than the 25, but I didnt thihk it was as brutal as many of the LR sections I had seen before. I finished the first in 25 minutes and had time to go to the bathroom. The second I finished in about 30

26 was definitely harder than 25. i was really thrown off by the oddball questions that popped up so early which made me slow the entire section down from my usual speed. grrrrrrr...
