I think the VM game was OK but only once you "saw" the logic. This is one where Velocity probably saved my ass. I think you could visualize the entire game [edit, realized this was too specific]. Now if only the last game didn't take so much damn time.

i despise rules like the no two topics together, maybe cos i dont know the order of the alphabet too well.

feeling a little uneasy about V/W; might have missed a rule if there were major diagram opportunities.

I blew threw the first two games and was thinking, "Sweet I'm rocking this!" I should have known that meant the second half was going to be comparatively brutal.

I read through the V/W game once and went, "What the hell?!" then immediately skipped to the 4th game which was very difficult for me, especially since it was the last section and I was starting to fade.

After spending no joke 15-17 minutes on the last game, I had about 6 or 7 minutes left for V/W. Then I realized it wasn't that bad, the setup was just worded in a weird manner. I went into full "Rain Man" mode, doing two or three levels of sequential inferences in my head. There's a decent chance that led to some mistakes, but ultimately I'm confident I did okay. I just wish I would have slowed down when reading V/W the first time. I might have realized it wasn't as bad as it intially appeared.

Anyone else think the LR sections were fairly difficult?? I felt worse about those than any LR section in any practice test I've taken in 2 months. FML.

ETA: At least there weren't any ridiculous RC passages like !Kung.

Does anyone remember if the real section of the LG had the last game with the morning, afternoon, or evening setup. I think it was a tiered game with ordering with 7 questions.

What did you find difficult about !Kung out of curiosity? I felt similarly about LR.

I had a lot of trouble with the second lg section as well and I usually do the best in lg on practice tests. I'm hoping this LSAT was like oct 11 and the experimental falls in the second half. First actual LSAT though. Hope you guys did well.

First tls post.

First LR kicked my ass. I have never felt pressed for time in any section before, but for some reason I just couldn't focus. I would narrow down obvious ones, but then I just froze and when I reread the prompt it was like I wasn't internalizing it. Second LR I finished with 10 minutes to spare and thought it was easy.

Real RC had the bugs/plants and Adam Smith's invisible hand from wealth of nations.

Had the same test - RC-LG-LR-LR-LG

I felt the test was very easy until the voicemail/web game in the last section. I nearly had to guess that entire section. The following game was hard, but not impossible.

I must have missed something in the last game. I found voicemails to be easy, but I could not get a grip on articles.

I agree the first was harder than the second. The second was right after the break, which helped, too. I don't know, though. For some reason I felt both were more difficult than average. Could just be "real test" uncertainty. FWIW, I felt the same way during the Oct test and ended up doing better than I thought. Hoping for a repeat of that!

I initially found both to be very difficult, but after taking a few extra seconds to think about Voicemails, I found it to be not that bad. Articles was definitely tough. Standard...last game of the section.

i found the RC harder than average (...than the past few LSATs...)....and I thought the second LR was significantly harder than the first LR...it seems like many agree that RC was easy though...

Same here, I finally figured it out late as I was running out of time and couldn't diagram, so while they weren't guesses on the last 2 or 3 questions I also didn't do full diagramming so I might have missed something.
