I have a clear motive in backing the above posters when they say the 3rd section was experimental, but I also think that for people like me who had LR (25) LR (26) LR (26), the experimental HAS to be the 3rd section. It was considerably harder than the LR of the 1st and 4th sections, and would LSAC really give the experimental section first or immediately after the break? To me, such a policy would go beyond testing future questions to making a test-taker do a guinea-pig section when her concentration is at its highest, which is hardly an accurate gauge of the reliability of their test questions. And if the 1st LR was experimental, then the test must have contained 102 questions, which has happened only a couple of times in the last two decades. Aside from administering the experimental section last, which obviously would skew the accuracy of the scale conversion on future tests, LSAC could then only put the experimental 2nd or 3rd. 2nd for me and for many other people was the games section. The only other possibility, therefore, is the remote one that the 4th section was experimental. And this also seems specious. Think about it. If you've already taken the two scored LR sections and you're starting the 3rd experimental one, your concentration, focus, and LR mindset are in top form, and the questions will likely seem the easiest and quickest of any of the three sections. Not only that, but you would be taking it directly after the 15-minute break. Would LSAC determine the outcome of thousands of future admissions decisions with an LR section that students are markedly more prepared to take than those same students would be for any RC or LG experimental section? Making the experimental section the second LR section out of 3 is in keeping with the arrangement of other test-takers' LG and RC experimental sections, whether appearing 2nd, 3rd, or 4th, because in all cases students will not have had 2 "warm-up" sections before their experimental section of the same type. The most any test-taker could have is a single (read: scored) warm-up before an unscored RC or LG section.
