LR2 consistently above LR1.

Postby rion91 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 12:01 pm

Anyone else have a problem like this?

This a graph of my LR1 and LR2 from many PTs.
I usually make ~18 on LR1 and ~20 on LR2.
You would think I would do better on LR1 than LR2 because of exhaustion, but it's the opposite.

Anyone else have this problem and was able to fix it?

I too have a similar issue where the is constantly a 2-3 question difference between LR 1 and LR 2.

Warm up with a set of LR questions before taking the whole PT.

People say that one section is always harder than the other (or most of the time).

I don't know if it was ever LR-specific, but I frequently did worse on my first section compared to both my usual score for that question type and the rest of the PT if I didn't "warm up" with short drills beforehand. It could simply be an issue of getting your mind in LSAT mode.
I started doing a few logic games and maybe 5-10 LR questions before starting my PTs, and it helped a lot on those first sections. I did some LGs in the car before the test on my retake, and it really soothed the nerves that bit me in the ass so hard on my first take. I ended up going -0 on my first section of the retake. :)
Hope this helps!

Psssh, no one wants help from someone who scored a measly 177, go somewhere else slacker.

Sabanist, I love your DP xD.

OP,

I had noticed a similar trend, however, that changed with PT 55. I ended up scoring better on LR1 than LR2. I think that it depends on your psyche. The advice to do some LR practice problems before taking the LSAT seems to be valid. Make sure that you wake your brain up and get into the LSAT mindset.
