new LG isnt easier

Postby revahp00 » Sun Dec 11, 2011 3:26 am

The new LG is NOT easier.... dinosaurs? stained glass windows? people wake up its the same difficulty in different terms.... substitution questions? the new LR isnt easier either... and the new RC harder!
Same logic, different questions... and different language... that is all. How do you get better at running marathons? you run practice marathons...that is all

carry on

I agree about LG on recent exams. Current games are different than pre-2000 iterations, but comparable in difficulty. Imo, games from 2002/2003-2006 were the easiest, but increased in complexity along with RC since the switch to comparative passages. I don't think LR is more challenging, just different (less formal logic, but more abstract).

I think they're easier by a mile, and no I don't fancy myself a games whiz.
Look at some of the older games. Golf/tennis? My god!

One game that always comes to mind is the mulch game on PT60, which is a really easy game, but would have had someone who relied purely on conventional test prep totally lost. They've also become more time-consuming, as quite a few of the games seem to require hypos to solve them.


+1.5

I think the less formulaic point is the key. Some of the earlier games were brutal, but once you broke them down they were quite easily solved. The games seem to be less easily defined nowadays. This, coupled with the increased frequency of pure-sequencing games, makes me think the LSAC is trying change up their style to combat all of the methods out there. If you look at the games from recent tests that people have freaked out about, they all have a little tweak which makes a particular method or multiple methods less powerful.
