By which PT do LRs get easier?

Postby itachiuchiha » Tue Jan 22, 2013 4:27 pm

I have noticed that prep companies usually use preptest from 1-35, but then again i hear people say that the more recent test have easier LR questions. So in essenc, are we learning how to do tougher LR questions from those prep companies?

I really don't think the objective level of difficulty on LR questions have changed at all, to be honest with you.

The logic is more strict in the more recent games and the LSAT "language" has been developed more thoroughly and tightened. Whether that makes thing easier or not, I am not sure; it's up to the test taker. There is certainly less space for vague language now, but again, the difficulty issue is up to the test taker.

I found PT 1-35 to be considerably verbose compared to PT 40 and onward, though PT 40/onward also gave me a lot more conditionals and questions that baffled me.

But I prefer the less verbose versions. I spend less time trying to find out what the passage is saying compared to trying to understand the logic, and so I get faster at doing the overall section.

Definitely fewer formal logic questions in newer LR and many, many more Principle questions (both Example and Support)

Depends on the type of test taker you are. I wouldn't say they've gotten easier, but they have gotten more learnable. The older LR sections are nauseatingly convoluted at times, and it is hard not to miss at least a couple Qs, even if you are exceptional with the material. The new questions are conceptually tougher (more complicated relationships, and so on), but if you know your rules backwards and forwards, you have a better chance at pulling a -0 or -1.
