India 2009 Test a good PT?

Postby ce255 » Tue Dec 03, 2013 4:50 pm

Hello there, had a couple of questions about testing and trends.
A friend of mine sent me a test - the India 2009 test. I fully plan on buying American prep test books but I wanted to see how this one was.

Here's why:

1) I took a diagnostic (June '07 test) - 11 months ago. I read the Princeton review book (awful) and sort of just gave up on the LSAT/law school thing after getting discouraged. Also, my diagnostic was a 143.

2) 11 mos. later, I've taken the India test (2009) and I got 72/100 which roughly translates to 159/160. Is this reliable? Would the India test be very different from the American one? They don't seem different IMO. Just wanted to know what you all thought.

They are good for overall practice and review but not good for predicting performance level on an American LSAT since the LSAT-India tests don't include questions of the highest difficulty level that appear on American tests. If you look at the LR sections of the LSAT-India test that is a modified version of the June 2007 LSAT, you'll notice that the hardest LR questions in the June 2007 sections were removed and replaced with easier questions. This means that you'll get more correct per LR section on LSAT-India tests than normal LSATs since they lack the hardest of the section Qs the American LSAT contains.

from personal experience, the india lsat feels way easier. at least one of the india LSATs only have 4 choices (a,b,c,d) for two of the sections. That makes odds of guess correctly a lot better. I took the second india LSAT (it had 5 answer choices for all sections rather than 4) and i still went -3 on the whole entire thing when my average is usually around -8 to -12. I seems that on the india lsat, wrong answers are more obviously wrong so its easier to use process of elimination.
