OOoo ok oops my bad... Nisa was the Kung! one... There was another about a black woman who made cartoons...I must have mixed the names. In fact I'm not even sure it was a cartoonist maybe a novelist about a woman moving from the south to north. Anyhow All this confusion is driving me nuts If anyone has the info on the Einstein exp passages please post. Sorry for the confusion.

Can someone, in the most general and ambiguous terms available to your vernacular, explain what about the Nisa RC passage made it so difficult? For instance, did it employ excessively hard vocabulary, was the material presented in a particularly abstract way, were the question stems worded difficultly?

Please do not respond with any information that could feasibly be construed to violate the contract you made with LSAC, I don't want that on my conscience. :P

I am just curious to see what my comrades in the states had to go through. My test didn't include this passage.

I don't think I can be specific enough to be helpful except to say that for me, the actual organization of the passage (to put it generally) was the most difficult part, and honestly I think this was just more a failure of my own comprehension than any necessary difficulty with the passage. The questions were slightly above average in difficulty but definitely not unreasonably so. I thought the "!" was some kind of error at first, but quickly got over it and it didn't bother me.

anyone else have hyper-realism, mobilizers and nonsymmetrical spin? I was super excited when I saw the last two because I took classes on both and thought I did well, although I think I bombed hyper-realism. I was relieved to find out it was experimental.

The !Kung passage was fucking boring. Reading shit like that is on par with getting your teeth drilled. I struggle just to actually take in what I'm reading so I don't have to go back and re-read. It's hard to prevent my mind from wandering to previous questions, or to how much time I've spent reading.

I liked the omnipotence passage and invasive plants passage.
