Recent PT??

Postby lsatkid007 » Tue Apr 30, 2013 6:20 pm

Hey guys
do the recent pts have 2 speakers per stim & does 1 stim have 2 questions? I hate 2 speaker stims & 2 questions for one stim.

Thanks

2 speakers; YES
2 questions per stimulus; NOT ANYMORE

What's not to like about the two question format? it saves time and effort... I'm also partial to the two speaker format as well because the issue at hand is usually pretty clear cut. At least that's how it seems to me. I always had the impression that LSAC got rid of the former because it was too easy, in terms of time per question, compared to other questions.

+1

One less stimulus to read and understand saves time.

2-speaker format questions aren't always point at issue questions, but I'd say that point at issue questions are one of the easiest question-types.

yeah that is a good point. Even when the two-speakers questions are another type though I find them easier.

Yup. I think that because two speakers have to be presented, they typically aren't as detailed or complicated as other LR questions.
