it's one test, it doesn't matter. it's way too old to be relevant beyond just practice taking the LSAT in general - either way it's not gonna be indicative of the actual LSAT you're gonna take

A "hard" test will compensate with a more generous curve. An "easy" test will have a stricter curve. The end result is all tests are generally at the same level of difficulty.

With the exception of PT 59, I've really never noticed any variation in difficulty. The difference between your standard -8 and -10 curves is going to be virtually negligible as you go through the test.

You find 59 harder than usual?
