The urge to look over the test after getting scores back is unbearable.

I just did the Toy Dinosaur one. honestly not that bad compared to all the horrors I've heard. I guess I can see it throwing people off but there is a pretty key inference that you can make that'll get you through it.

Honestly, I still think the PT game from 60 is the hardest one i've ever done...the landscaper mulch and stone load one.

The mulch one isn't bad you just have to diagram a LOT and make sure you exhaust all possibilities. Personally the used/new CD in/out game still pisses me off.


the mulch one to me is definitely not the most intuitive diagram, and i think thats what got me when I did it. Dino's honestly is a very straight forward diagram. I saw it almost immediately when I did it.

CD's also sucks...ugh.

You are not alone in that. 55-57 were some of my worst tests, I have no clue why to be honest. It stands out as this big dip on my spreadsheet.

The guy from the 7Sage video explanation said that one of those games is one of the hardest of all time. I wen't -3 on that game alone and, for the first time, had a difficult time understanding his explanation and just gave up. Going to take a look at it later on but for now I'm done with it.

Looking back at my notes, 55 and 56 were some of my lowest-scoring tests. I'm going to retake them next week.

I'm taking PT 56 tonight (or tomorrow, depends). I'm open to reviewing it with anyone if interested.

I went -2 on PT 55 games. I didn't think were that bad at all. The first three were cake, the last one was kind of tough, I didn't get to the last two questions, guessed and missed them, hence the -2

Am I the only one who loves the RC passage Aeschylus, about the gods, and making different choices based on the God's influence. I think that's probably the most interesting passage I've read on RC.

Is it still frowned upon to take the lsat more than twice? Do top law schools still consider people who have taken the test three or four times?

I really liked 7sage vids, but ended up altering his methods and getting faster/more accurate than ping. What he called difficult changed radically when i stopped wasting time with his slow rule write-out method in the beginning. Get 'em.
