thanks guys. that's what i thought, started doubting myself for some strange reason. as far as the rest of the games go, i just "brute forced" everything, and it was actually not that bad to draw out pretty much all the possibilities for them.

I thought it was 7 too, can someone who remembers for sure confirm 5 or 7?


I'm 99.9% sure that Game 4 (books) had 5 questions and Game 3 (bikes) had 6. (I remember counting them and choosing to go with Game 3 because it had more Qs. Turned out to be a huge mistake! :()

So bummed... Wish all this studying could have paid off.

Dang it, I wish I had 2 LG Sections on my test. No such luck. Good luck to everyone.

Exact same boat. Game 2 was easy but I completely ran out of time so I didn't even read three of the questions. Game 1 took me 5 minutes, game 4 took 10 mins (mis-diagramed), game three took me 15, and I only had 5 for 3. I definitely remember staring at a question on game 3 that I knew the answer to based on my diagram but for some reason wasn't processing it when looking for the answer. I remember when I got it, I was like wtf I knew this was the answer, I said this was the answer in my head, why didn't i see it in the answer choices. I ended up doing a bunch of hypos and wasting time.

Grrrrr....my first Games section had wine labels as a game and I got through that whole section quite quickly. My second Games section (3) included ambassadors and research cruises, neither of which did I diagram correctly ---> lots of random guessing.

And ya, I did Dec 2010, too. F#%k stained-glass windows.

I just realized that Game 3, which took me a whopping 18 minutes, would have taken about 5 if I had just bothered to step back for a second and take a breather and think.

FML.

Please don't tell me these things.

Let's just pretend that it was impossibly difficult and that no one could ever have figured it out. Please :( ?

I'm sorry. But it is. I just did it.

It's so simple that I did it from memory just now even though I couldn't manage to do it during the test.

Try it. You'll see.

And then you'll do what I did - crack open your 2nd bottle of wine for the evening.


All I can say.... :cry: :cry: :cry: :oops:

... more beer. I almost wish I had never gotten to -0 on my PT's because maybe now I wouldn't feel like crap.

I'm kind of pissed at myself. The 3rd game was ridiculous for me.. I should have just realized that and moved on after awhile. I spent SO much time on it and screwed myself out of the 4th game which I think should have been easy

LSAC prohibits discussion, including the so-called “postmortem” discussion of test questions immediately after a particular test administration, because it has the potential to affect the fairness of the LSAT and the law school admission process. This thread has been logged and appropriate action may be taken.

If you screwed up, you would be able to at least remember a game that held you up for an inordinate amount of time or a game that where you didn't feel at all confident about your answer choices. I hardly remember anything about the game topics, but that is because once I symbolize the rules and build a set-up, the scenario drops out of my mind almost completely. This probably just means that you effectively pushed things out of your mind as you moved on. You could have simply been hyper-focused.


+1

It often becomes about nothing but the letters when completing a game under timed condition the first time. You're in the zone and feeling the time pressure, so you disregard the topic.

It's typically when re-doing/reviewing a game later (not on Test Day) that the scenario really starts to become memorable (and an easy way to reference a particular game).

In other words, not being able to remember the scenario doesn't necessarily mean anything about your performance on the game itself.
