I bought the Black Warrior unknowingly - I just thought it looked incredibly badass. And it is.

Wasn't until I read this thread that I stopped to look at what brand my badass pencils are. And indeed, they are Black Warriors.

Um, I was going to bring mechanical pencils to do the work and circle my answers. Then at the end I was going to bubble them all in with a normal wood No. 2 pencil. Can I not bring two types of pencils? I assumed filling in all my answers at the end would save time, as long as I don't let time run out before I bubble them in.

Is the slash thing true? I always bubble very dark and thorough but if I didn't it probably would save me thirty seconds (just about what i need for RC and LG).

Remember to spend 1-2 hours the night before working on your bubbling.

Use a BIC round stic. Pencils are for people who make mistakes.

Wait a minute...

So you guys are saying the LSAT is completed on a scantron?

It's NOT a computer administered test like the GRE?!!!!!

No, Cadillacs are made like crap. I'd say it's more like the Lexus/Infiniti/Acura of pencils.

LoL this thread makes it seem picking out a pencil is like picking out a wand from Harry Potter.

as I was reading this I thought to myself...how stupid is this topic. Then I thought to myself wow I must be an easy sell. I feel like my pencil is inadequate. By "my pencil" I mean any pencil I use because I never thought there was a difference.

At first, I was planning to go Dixon Ticonderoga, but I think this thread sole me on a Black Warrior. I appreciate the non-hexagonal shape as well as its intimidating hue.

Two pages and no one has mentioned pencils that erase the best? This is 75% of the pencil's quality IMO

There should be no erasing necessary on the LSAT :wink:

Or maybe a carpenter's pencil? The lead is already bubble shaped.

Are you serious? I just bought a huge fucking box of mechanical pencils. Grr.

Why ban mechanical pencils? They are worried about those radio transmission devices that resemble a mechanical pencil but communicate all the test answers to whoever is holding it?

I fucking hate the LSAT rule-makers. Analog watches are hard to use. Why won't the fuckers let me bring a digital timer so I don't need to think? Arghhh.
