While we were waiting, I couldn't help but look at everyone's pencils. So many TTT and TTTT pencils all in one area. I laughed, but I then I remembered that I was just like them on my last LSAT.

I saw a ton of TTT pencils. I brought 2 golden bears, 2 black warriors, 2 triconderogas, and 2 ticonderogas.

I killed my first section with minutes to spare, so I re sharpened my ticon, same with section two and three, and I used it after the break too (I was on a roll, why change a good thing?). After section 4 I switched to a black warrior for RC and used a black warrior for the writing section.

only if you use TTT pencils, one is considered TTT

the above list is not encompassing — so you may possess quality pencils that we may have not even heard of.

A relief... Although my pencil said it was specifically for exams which makes me question it's worthiness... Oh well, here is to waiting for the scores!

If your pencil explicitly says its purpose is for exams, then there is a high probability that it may be a quality pencil.

Makes sense... I did prefer it to the triconderoca... In all seriousness this thread cause me to try numerous pencils before the test... Who know what pencil one used would have any impact... Haha

LOL these are my past 4 orders on Amazon


Hah, and here I thought it was just giving recommendations off of my shopping history..

Of course, if it was, Palomino HBs would be listed instead of Pearls. :D

Both are highly recommended and can be purchased here:

http://www.amazon.com/Tombow-MONO-R-pen ... B0016GHXFW

I'll be using these on the WRITING SAMPLE.


Those look amazing booze. Could you report back on their efficacy on the other sections (reading comprehension, logic games, and logical reasoning)? I think that would be useful information for potential LSAT studiers and test takers.
