Does it seem like there are a larger variety of experimental sections than normal? I wasn't really around for immediately after the october test so I don't know if this is normal. Seems like there are a lot of different LR, RC, and LGs people are describing.

If yes, I am putting on my tinfoil hat and going to throw out there that LSAC asked us about familiarity with tablets and comfort with virtual keyboards. Maybe the move to be more like GREs and GMATs is happening soon and they need a larger question base.

I know they're looking at using tablets. They had people try out the technology at the Boston LSAC Forum in October. However, having the test on a tablet doesn't necessarily mean they'd go away from the quarterly tests.

Interesting, I wonder if those tests would provide quicker results... or if they will print out a scantron sheet with their answers and throw it in the pile.

They might just be doing research for the use of tablets and mobile devices for LSAT Prep products.

The woman explicitly said they were looking at transitioning to testing using the tablets. They had an entire sample test loaded, and she had me take some sample questions for the LR and RC.

They are researching using the tablet for testing. At one of the LSAC Forums they had attendees test the useability of a tablet through the different sections.

I think not being able to cross of answers with a pencil would be tough.


I think the worst would be RC. How do you take notes on the passage?!

I could be wrong but I don't think Game 4 from LG had 7 questions to those saying that it did. I'm sure that 1 had 5 and 2 had 6 but I think it then went 7 and 6, not the other way around.

I spared myself the anxiety and have avoided this thread. Which RC was experimental?

Edit: Nevermind, I read through the first page. Good luck to everyone!

I'm praying that the weather issues/LSAC vacation does not affect when we get our scores. I will slap a hoe.

mirrors was real.

I tried going no notes for RC but it didn't work out for me. I liked taking the time to think about the paragraph and writing something quick down. Something I noticed the week before the test was that parts of the passage between commas seemed to be the most likely to appear in questions. So I made a note of them. Of course this falls apart if there are a lot of them, but it was a good place to start looking.

Did you guys notice one of the optional questions on the back of the answer sheet was how often we used smartphones, tablets, and computers. Maybe the LSAT will follow in the footsteps of the MCAT and GRE and go electronic? I would hate that for posterity sake.
