{quote]
I believe 27. I can't really remember what the topics were. I think one had to do with Indians and their methods of farming. I think I got every question right. I was so disappointed when I found out that was the experimental.[/quote]

I'm pretty sure the real section had 27 questions..my exp reading sec had 26 so unless both urs had 27 that was the.real one I'm pretty sure...literally just reread the first 10 pgs of this thread to make sure


Yea.. the non-exp one had Indian/White farming methods, Bankrupt laws on companies, the debate on how the fossils ended up where they were, and some other one... I better not be banned for this because this is GENERAL and a bunch of ppl already mentioned it before and didn't get any bans. The fossil one was the hardest, followed by bankrupt laws, and the easiest was the indian/white farming where all you had to do was pick the most anti-white/pro-indian answer.

Forgot the 4th one.


farming, bankruptcy, comparative tax subsidies for art (pro and con), and fossils found in sand.
I only had one RC so those were definitely the topics. And there were 27 questions.

I believe it was given in that order. And I really didn't find any of them to be more than average difficulty. In past practice tests I never seem to completely understand sections that start with "XXXXXX Person, who was of XXXX decent, refined the field of literature/poetry/art/etc by doing x and y whereas others only did x or y,..." or whatever. For some reason I read those and can't focus on them; I just think who the fuck cares at all about this garbage?

Yea you're right. The tax subsidies were hard though.. that was the compare one and they seemed to agree vaguely (sp?) but then oppose on more specific terms and the questions were killer..

i agree


I can't stand art. I think it's a made up field where people express their emotions and feelings and make up crap and pretend it's exact like science... so when it was about art, my mind entered into vague mode and sort of decided to interpret the reading like it would interpret art... weird I know but then the questions got really specific and weren't as much about the passage as other RC.. they were more infer questions with an emphasis on infer lol so it felt like there wasn't a sentence that could make an answer 100% true.. stupid art.. In my head I kept thinking, "Not my tax money!"

I don't know why but I find that if the reading topic is something I'm at least somewhat familiar with, it is a lot easier for me. Being an business major I know all about taxes, bankruptcy, subsidies, etc. so for me personally I didn't think it was that hard. When I read something about a topic i have no prior knowledge of or exposure to, I find it difficult to focus on and sometimes I miss the overall point and stuff.


Man you're lucky.. I was so mad when they turned the LAW passage, which was supposed to be about LAW, into a business passage with all the bankruptcy talk.. def wasn't enough law to be considered a law passage.

Couldn't disagree more. I'd rather have a passage about relatively modern bankruptcy law then some of those ancient law English nobility bullshit passages!

But those are about law!! This one was how bakruptcy affects businesses and the only law-related thing was the first sentence that said there were two different laws on bankruptcy.. the rest was pure business..

I couldn't want to talk about the specifics of the test any less right now. It just makes me double guess myself.

I'm actually really confident on the LR. It's the LG and RC I have NO idea on. As long as I went no worse than -7 on both then I am going to significantly improve.

Same here. I think I killed LR, kinda unsure about RC, and LG was definitely my worst section.

I'm going to be happy with a -14 on that LG. I was totally lost and guessed on at least 8. Everything else seemed fine, except for the final 6 questions on the exam (LR for me) where my mind went completely blank (first sitting, only practiced for 10 hours).

I felt like I killed December 11's logic games. Went -8. Should have gotten -0 to -2 but I obviously messed up big.

I wanted to quote a lot of different peoples responses in this but there were to many.


Basically I think RC is a dumb section all together. Obviously we can read and comprehend well at this point. The test would be better if it was like 2 LR and 2 LG sections and no reading. I feel like reading is sooooo subjective as to how well the individual test taker understands the particular passage. That was EXTREMELY volatile and unpredictable on all of my practice tests (ranging from -1 to -8), where as all of my LG and LR were extremely consistent ( always -2 in LR and -0 to -2 in LG), at least in the last 8 or so practice tests I took before the actual exam.

I think LG is too "learnable" so no double scored LG. Too easy.

Well they could make the games harder. I'd rather have a difficult second scored LG section than a RC section.
