Cambridge LSAT materials

Postby boaltlaw » Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:11 pm

Can you split the $280 cost with someone and print the materials twice?

it's against the rules. The download is a pdf so you can print the materials as many times as you need. i sent you a pm, too.

in practice it's nearly impossible, but I'm sure when you download from cambridge you have to agree to their T and C which says you won't share. It's a single use license or whatever.

ah come on d
i thought a normal lsat was 5 sections (2 lr, 1 lg, 1 rc, 1 experimental) + writing sample

so whats the difference between 280 and 320? isnt a 5 section test the test "in its entirety"?

I got the 4 section bundle. If I could do it over, I would have gone with the 5. The 6 is overkill in my mind, but would be good if endurance is a real problem for you.

oh so the 280 bundle doesn't include experimental sections?

How is that entirety?

I don't know the price points of the different bundles so "280" versus "320" means nothing to me.

"In it's entirety" usually refers to the four graded sections since the experimental sections are not published and therefore not in Cambridge PT's. However, simply doing four section tests doesn't accurately mimic the test day experience because a fifth experimental section will be added on test day. The bundle with five section tests (the four real sections and a Cambridge-inserted experimental section) is the way to go if you want your PT experience to closely follow what the official test administration will be like. Simply doing four section tests may not allow you to work on endurance issues.

Ah okay. So where do they get the experimental version for the 5th section?

They take full sections from older PT's iirc.

ah for sure thanks d.

so you would recommend the one with "endurance" or "extreme endurance"?

I think extreme endurance would be good for building stamina. But in the event that you just want to take a regular 4 section test, do they tell you which ones are experimental (perhaps in an appendix or something)?

Pick whichever one you think would best suit your needs. Personally, I would do the 5 section one but endurance isn't a huge issue for me. Others have said that the 6 section one makes the actual 5 section LSAT seem like a piece of cake.
And yes, they tell you which one is the experimental either in the index or on the scoring sheet.

So if I use 1-38 for drilling and they use those sections as experimental for their 5/6 section practice tests, wont I know which one is experimental?

Yeah that's a real possibility. When I was taking a PT offered by my prep company, I figured out which section was the experimental cuz I did that in my 1-38 drilling.
