recent LSATs

Postby ronthebartender » Tue Jan 31, 2012 4:08 pm

I'm taking the LSAT for the first time February 11, and while I'm happy with my pt average, I haven't taken any of the more recent tests. I've only made it through the 30s. From what I've gathered browsing TLS, the tests are slightly different nowadays. Im wondering exactly what the recent trends are, especially with respect to games types and LR questions. If I could only take a few of the new PTs, which ones most exemplify the recent trends? Any help would be much appreciated.

I just made it to the 50's, and LR is slightly harder with more intense reading needed, LG is way easier. RC is still a bitch

In all honesty I find the later exams to be easier than the PTs in the 20s. The only substantial difference that comes to mind is that recent tests have comparative passages in the reading comprehension section. For a free copy of a recent prep test consult LSAC resources.

I think the general consensus is that LR is different, although not necessarily more difficult. The way you approach the questions is pretty different, however. LG tends to be easier, and as bruss indicted, RC still fucking sucks. >.<
