I read it somewhere online but I am not quite sure if this was from the lsac website.
Isn't there suppose to be 3 minutes break between each section?
That is the time when you set your timer back and what not.
All my sections were pretty much non-stop and I had to waste about 10 seconds putting my watch back to 12 each section.
I know it is not a lot of time but I am just curious.
And also, did any one had to share your desk with another person?
My test center provided the type of table you see at a food court.
I thought it was quite annoying. Every time the other person erases or shakes his leg, it shakes the whole table and it bothered me a little.
Any one?

nope. you'll get anywhere from 10-30 seconds while the proctor reads their scripted response.

No. I recall barely having time to reset my watch timer and grab a sip of water.

Can you read the next section(even though you do not use your pencil) while the proctor reads instruction for 10-30 seconds??
It is really not enough time to reset my watch... :cry:

No, you can't open the booklets until the proctor says 'you may now begin' or whatever and starts to time (aka, after they are done speaking).

If it really takes you that long to reset your watch, you either need a better watch or you need to learn how to move the dial faster. Shouldn't it just be *un-click, turn, wait for section to begin, click*? That takes like, 5 seconds.

Yea, proctor says Stop, put your pencils down...

Reads directions, go

Enough time to reset a watch though
