The color of the exam. paper

Postby 15chocolate » Mon May 20, 2013 3:19 am

Hi,
I found the paper color is too bright and cannot focus sometimes...
How can I overcome this?? Just practice and accustomed to it?
I'm using official 10 PT books and the MLSAT's 15 latest book.
Is the real test form the same color?? (white) Or yellowish (like recycled paper)?
Also...does anyone know whether we can bring an eyelotion?
Thanks!

I have very sensitive eyes, so I actually have the same problem. Perhaps we'll be able to bring in prescription sunglasses and score 180s in style 8)

Btw, I download PTs in pdf form and print them on beige paper. Get a cheap Brother laser printer.

I have serious dry eyes (When I went to the eye doctor and checked dry eye level, they couldnt find tears on the exam paper they said...) so I'm using eye drops everyday.
Maybe this relates to how I feel about the paper brightness, but not sure what I can do...

Humm...yes I think I can do that for practice.
But what about in the real test?
Would they use those recycle paper? :(

The book is newsprint like every other standardized test. The answer sheet is white.

Call LSAC about the eye drops. I think they'd be ok you just couldn't get into them except during the break.

OK, I will...guess it'd be (a little) harder test for those have eye problems :cry:
Btw, is there anyway to overcome or ease it?
Any advice would be appreciated...
Found missed some easy questions because of this and it's so frustrated :(

I registered the June one but may want to move to Oct...

The exam is printed on the cheapest, shittiest recycled paper you could hope for. It is also very thin, and may tear when you diagram logic games with a sharp pencil. It threw me off the first time I took it. Also, the paper is grey, and not even close to white.

Thanks, that's good to know :)
I may need to be careful not to sharpen a pencil too hard then... :roll:

True.

It's worth noting that the scantron sheet is hella bright, if OP is really that concerned. Or at it least it was for my February LSAT- bright orange. Anyone else have a different colored scantron?

Nah, it's white. Only thing that is colored is the writing topic paper, which is, IIRC, blue.

..what are you referring to?

Anyone who has ever taken a standardized test will be able to confirm on test day that the LSAT is indeed administered on the typical, dingy recycled paper. I'm sure it's technically "white" booklet paper, but for the sake of the OP, it's effectively a light off-white/gray.

And the scantron has a white background, but the color of the bubbles is not black, as expected. Mine was orange. Was wondering if anyone had a differing experience.

Scantron is white. Nobody is disputing that.

Weird. OP is listed mere cms away from the last word in the thread title. I alway know who the OP is before opening a thread, because it's so simple. You two both must be very stupid
