October LG

Postby kylemba » Sun Oct 07, 2012 5:12 pm

Am I the only one that thought these were the hardest LG's i've ever done in my life? That's the only section that I think could ruin my score and i'm kind of freaking out.

Zoning was bad, honestly i just guessed through them, but other than that I thought it wasnt all that bad. I feel like the RC was harder than any RC Ive ever taken though, I was certien that was experimental until another RC section never came.

I took my time on the first two games, so I was rushing for the last two. I don't know, maybe that saved me because I wasn't over-thinking it and I just answered the questions using the rules, instead of worrying too much about setup. I finished all of them without guessing, but didn't have time to go back and check my work.

Did you run out of time? Have to guess on several? If so, that happened to me the last time I took the test and I still got a decent score. It won't ruin your overall score that much if you were strong in the other sections.

I ended up just guessing most of them too, I just couldn't think into any of them. I also think I screwed my self by working all the games sections out of the 10 more actuals the day before... I was completely fried by the end of the day and had the same focus problem I did on test day.

I thought I destroyed RC and felt really good.. until I got another RC later on... then I was pissed.

I ran out of time but I bubbled everything in at the 5 min mark just in case. I think I ended up with about 3 questions I didnt even get to. Also had to guess on several that I just didnt know. One game I diagramed and half way though the problems I realized I set it up completely wrong and that threw me off, so after that I just went straight to questions like "which could be an acceptable order" and questions that I could make a hypo for. As for "CANNOT" questions... straight guess...

If I didn't get lucky and guess right i'm thinking -15... yeah that bad... thats why i'm thinking I'm ruined.

I usually ace LG and the zoning one completely threw me, to the point where I just bubbled in random answers when time was called. Does anyone remember how many questions were in that game? I'm trying to figure out how many I potentially got wrong due to complete guessing

Well, I feel like I definitly bombed the RC, but im hoping Im wrong. Just seemed to wordy and I didnt feel comfortable about ANY of my answers! Which isnt good. For the games I felt pretty comfortable with 2 of them, and went through a 3rd kinda fast without setting it up but ithink I applied the rules pretty well. I did not do the games in order but I know the zoning one was what I didnt do, I was like half way through the 5 minute warning by this time, I went to try to set it up and was like wtf?... Filled in all the blanks D just before I ran out of time. I really have a bad filling about my score!

I remember guessing on the entire zone game which was 6 questions (because I had to go back to game 1 which I knew I had a better chance at re-examining). Let us hope that there are a lot of answer choice "D" in that section! LOL

Haha D was the answer I guessed every time. I cant even remember the zoning question.. probably guessed all of it.

THIS. Minus the LG related comment. I thought Zoning was straightforward but had some disgusting language no normal human being uses to convey ideas.

I did random A,B,A,D bubbling i think. I should've bubbled them all the same!! Here's hoping they throw away one of the questions like they did in June.

D is my magic letter, too. I think this was a very hard Games section, but games are not my forte, and some of the wording was confusing. I also thought some of the wording was unclear; spent a lot of time trying to figure out what they were trying to imply on aisles and I didn't figure out a useful diagram for speeches until it was too late to do it.

Powerscore said pick D so that what I always went with. Usually I can get 1 or 2 right from it.

Glad I was not there for this one. Taking it in December, though. Question: does the presence of a very hard games section on a previous test lessen the probability of it happening on the next test, or a test soon thereafter? Seems like it may be silly to think so, but it would be nice :).

I really have no idea, probably no way to really tell.

but

Do you guys think its a good sign that nearly EVERYONE thought the games were hard since there is kind of a so called curve? After looking around on the forum i've maybe found one person that said they thought it was easy.

Well I will be honest, the zoning definitly through me off, I answered DDDDDD, which I know is bad! But, the other games werent that bad. I actually probably could have gotten through the second game without even setting it up.That said Ithink the easy games made up for the difficult one. The RC was what really through me off, and Im surprised that more people arent compaining about that whole section!

Are you kidding? lol, people got crushed by !Kung and the passages that accompanied !Kung. RC is literally the sole reason I'm worried. I completely bombed that section and what's worse, I think I demolished my tests' experimental RC

See I thought RC was very easy even though my experimental was also RC.. im pretty sure however that just hearing from people that said a little too much about the question that the one I felt most confident on was the one that counted.

I really don't even remember the zoning question all that much, I just remember all them threw me off.

I do remember !Kung.. that was indeed the most confusing RC i've probably ever done... or at least up there with the one I did on Medieval Law on a PT.

I remember my reaction to every other sentence on !Kung was something along the lines of "Wait.. huh... the fuck does that even mean?"

I had !Kung and friends as my FIRST section, so that retartedness set the stage for the rest of the test. I was sure that section was experimental with all those damn upside down exclamation marks. In my head all I'm thinking is "this can't be real :|" I'm an idiot for thinking that though. LSAC really toyed with my emotions on this test, my 3rd section was RC so at that point I'm thinking "there IS a God" and I go on to kill that section only to come home to discover that it's experimental.
