Inspections was such bullshit so glad experimental


thank goodness... that first LG section was terrifying. the last one was a piece of cake IMO


I had experimental LG, but not this one. No inspections and very easy. Almost wish it was harder because when I got to the real ones I really didn't want them.

I recall the high cost couch/sofa, dispute re: murder mystery and doctor dosage. I don't remember anything about drinking alcohol or exercising more.

The order is often different. From what I hear, the real LG was one with the aisles and Zones game, as much as I wish it weren't the case.

Zones was tricky but it really reminded me of stained glass windows for some reason, and when I applied a similar attack to it, it seemed decent and doable. Every other game was no problem, i even completely missed a rule on one game and had plenty of time to fix it lol. That first LG section though, my god that was the hardest thing I've ever done, so happy that was exp. (interesting to see there was more than one first exp LG section as im not recognizing some of the stuff people are mentioning - seems there was one super easy one and one hardddd one)

I hate Logic Games and the experimental one seemed doable for me. I even had time to confirm my answers. So I def. had the easy one.

DO ANY NON-LogicalReasoning EXPERIMENTAL test takers RECALL A QUESTION similar to this:

I don't think anyone's joking. The general scuttlebutt floating around is that the games section with Zones is the credited section. People who did not have that game seem to have been in other countries taking another version of the test.

the last one was the real one. the first one was a. really very easy and b. in the first three sections and c. other people who only had one LG section had the ones with the zones (the fifth section for us)

Yes. That last LG absolutely demolished me. I feel like shit right now. I probably won't cancel my score, because most of the schools I'm looking at just take the highest one. If I can irk out a mediocre score, I may just roll with it, because I never want to do this again.


At least you got to the last one. I flamed out around the time I realized my setup for a certain game was completely incorrect.

There's something quite humiliating in not doing well on this test for a second time (first one had an exp. LG, too) when I do a lot of the work that the attorneys in my office do


This times 1 million. After working with attorneys, and doing their work, and having them ask me how to do things, I'm not seeing how the LSAT predicts a person's ability to practice law. It's beyond frustrating.

There was more than one version of the experimental LG and it was the opposite of easy.

Also LSAT+grades do a good job of predicting performance in law school, however im not sure how well that predicts doing well as a lawyer, depends on your definition of 'doing good' in relation to actually practicing law. Probably pretty hard to quantify

I had one section of LR so the zones game was definitely for real. The language of the scenario for that one totally threw me for a loop. I was able to answer all the questions but have no idea what to expect.

I also had 2 RC sections. Does anyone without the extra RC remember anything about an African American playwright/actor?

the african american actor was deff for real.

1st LG: is this real life? could it be this easy? lalala *sprinkles flower petals on the answer sheet*
2nd LG: lord a mercy! these lsackers done socked it to me

the zoning wording threw me off, but i got it figured at the end. i went through almost all the problems before i realized what the rules were, though, and didn't have time to check my answers. blargh!

Yes i certainly agree that wording was not kind, i had to look at questions and AC's to reverse engineer how to set up the game lol

I think my reaction was the exact opposite:

1st LG: is this REAL? holy crap. holy crap. *blinded by the amount of space on the pages* This must be experimental.. must be experimental... *wonders when should start to decide to cancel score* *hopes to see another LG section in the back*
2nd LG: *actually starts breathing* this is do-able. *still wondering about the space* thank GOODNESS.



From what I've gathered, experimental is always one of first three sections. I dont know why people try to tell me it's not always the case. I'm pretty sure that there were three different sources that told me this fact, but...

I think the worst thing about this form for me was that I just wanted to give up and die when I saw that final LG section. LG has always been the important section for me and after crushing the first one I think I was in denial about the last one. It took me awhile to compose myself.

The first three sections used to always include the experimental but LSAC changed that last October. The most recent PT's also had the extra space on the LG's and I personally am glad for it because my handwriting sucks and I appreciate the extra space to work on games.
