How Has LSAT Changed Since PT 53?

Postby LegalMind007 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 6:50 pm

Hi folks!

Studying for the September administration of the LSAT and I'm currently on PT54. I just finished up to 53 and have been scoring from 172-175. Just wondering if the test changes in any significant way as I keep plugging away onto the latest tests. Don't want any surprises near test day that I should be focusing on now.

RC is significantly harder and harder games.

I'll second RC being much harder, but I think logic games are different, not necessarily harder. I would drill some of the older games. If you have a 7sage account, you can search for the MISC games and work through those and I think that'll help a lot with the newer games that are odd.

RC definitely harder.

I think LR is easier for me in newer tests (less need to use formal logic tools, although that may just be that as I got farther in my study/practice I got better at doing things naturally).

LG is LG. Always use the rules to find the answers.

Don't worry about the test changing. There may be more misc games, and some RC passages may have become slightly more dense, but neither will seriously impact your score. If you can score in the 170s in the 50s, you also can in the 80s. Still make sure to take a number of later tests to "familiarize" yourself with the subtle changes before September.

Edit: Remove quote, didn't mean to. Sorry for false notification maybeman

There are a couple subtle question wording changes but nothing major. It's the same skills needed, just what you've read is mixed up a little bit. Example would be "the answer to which question below would ___ with the argument above" was something that threw me the first time I saw it.
