Difference in Number Typically Missed on Older/Newer LG

Postby ws81086n » Fri Jan 11, 2013 3:52 am

How much better, if at all, do you typically do on the newer LG vs the LG from the 20's and 30's? Obviously not all of the older sections are harder than all of the new ones, but it seems like they generally are, so a gap would make sense, right?

Really? The older LGs were so much easier than the newer ones. I also seem to remember reading some articles about how the LSAT was made more difficult post-2000 because of a rise in applicants and a greater need for differentiation.

I could very well be wrong but my experience was that I scored significantly lower once I started practicing the newer versions, because the LGs seemed to become more complex.

Hmm. I suppose that to some extent it's dependent on preference, but I really don't think the older LG's are "much" easier, if at all. I tend to find them a little bit harder. As for the test overall being harder, that may be true, but I think RC and LR are both harder (in particular RC, although I still think the older ones are nice practice), so that could be accounted for by those two sections.

Also, post-2000 includes several tests in the 30's
