Hey guys, I'm in need of some advice on the LR section. I drilled PT's 10-20 and usually missed 2-4 each LR section. Just for kicks I drilled PT 60 and probably missed around 9-10 on the first LR section. I know the test changes significantly but is this just a fluke in the number of questions I'm missing or does the LR section REALLY get that harder? I'm planning on taking the February test. I haven't started drilling the RC section but I've gotten the LG section down pretty well..can I still be in shape, taking in account what PT 60 might indicate? I've gone through the PS Bibles and Manhattan books. Also have drilled with Cambridge worksheets. Thanks!

The test does not change significantly. They get a little more sophisticated with their language, and they're a little more precise with their wording. However, the logic is the same, and the question types are the same.
If you are used to the 'old' LSATs, then changing from #20 to #60 can result in a bit of a shock the first time. Your brain is used to a certain pattern on the exam that's shifted since the 90s. However, it shouldn't take too long for you to adjust to the new ones, as the logic/question types (as stated above) are the same. So think of the new LSATs as a cold pool - you faced the shock when you jumped right in. But now that you're in, it should feel a lot better. I'd expect you to take 1-2 more tests/sections to adjust, and then see a reversion to your old levels of accuracy.
