What book is that? Bubbling a full LR section usually takes me about a minute, so I estimate I also take about 2-3 seconds per question.

Agreed. How can one bubble at a roughly .5 second per question rate? It seems atrociously fast (~15 seconds of bubbling total per section) and likely highly prone to either bubbling in the wrong answer or not fully bubbling in the bubble (imagine getting a point or two lower for that!).

I'm perfectly ok with the 1-2 seconds per bubble. Still fits well within the time allocation for me.

On a side note, does anyone know how much of a mark one needs to leave for the scantron to pick it up?

I think I heard someone saying that you can just strike a line through and it's enough. Bubbling takes a longer time than striking a line through... So perhaps just two strikes.. back and forth?

Itight save you time I guess.

Solve the problem quickly, then no need to worry about bubbling. If this really mattered, study for the actual LSAT.

I think the Barron's LSAT dedicates a large portion of its book towards bubbling.

I'm actually curious about your first question as well. Anybody?

I don't bubble anything until the very end. My average bubbling time per section is actually about 2 minutes, which includes the time it takes to flip through the section and look at what I already circled.

You could always just bubble while reading the next question stem (as it would save time) and if you're worried about bubbling slightly outside the bubble, then just opt to have your exam hand-graded for a little extra.
