Seeing this post makes me feel so much better and thank you so much for creating this.

according to the information, I had

1. LR Q.25 -- Experimental ,
2. LR 2. - Q.26.
3.RC. ---.Q.27.
4. LG. --- Q23.
5. LR.3--Q.26

I messed up sestion 1, only section i guessed some questions.
So when I saw LR.2 was Q.26, i felt somewhat screwed for the reason will be address later.
Then I saw section 5, Q.26, i was so sure i messed up real LR section. cuz usually LSAT total Qs are 100, or slightly less occasions, total is 101 Questions. but few times, total Questions are 102 Questions. so when i knew Section 5 was Q.26, for couple seconds, I felt despaired but i thought to myself "Never Know" let's try my best just in case.

If i didn't see this, i would have been despaired until the actual score came.

To me, LG was relatively easy. RC was hard, especially the 1 and 3rd, RC, for me.


Hi lathlee - that's amazing news, well done! Rooting hard for you!

Hi!

I had 3 LR sections - The topic for one of the questions was “council member Marr’s plan to balance the city’s budget”. I want to find out if it was the experimental section- Can anyone else recall? Thank you in advance for your help!


Hey lsatdaily - I haven't seen anyone mention that question yet, but that's not altogether surprising considering there were 52 scored LR (and another 25-26 with an exp LR). Hopefully another member can help you out though, and certainly if I find out more I'll update this reply to let you know!

Hope it went great today!

I had LR, RC, LR, LG, LR. Realllyyy hoping my first LR was experimental....the first question was about taxes on motor fuel. Can anyone confirm?

I thought games was scary easy (was bracing myself for games 3/4 after finishing 1/2 in 15 mins). For RC, I thought the fish farming and witnesses passages were definitely the hardest/densest. Movies and blues musicians passages were okay though.

Lathlee,

I am beyond stoked to hear things went well, and that you fought off the early "bad experimental" issue—well done!!

I wrote very similar format as you did, mollyok, and had same afterthought feeling when I finished. Like you did, i had my scored RC section earlier (which as I was finishing the last passage, RC this time around, hard overall). So as i was doing LG, i thought this is why LG is easy for me cuz i had to go through tough RC, especially two of RC had two hard passages and questions; in my opinion, those two passages didn't have few questions, i think. (my definition of few questions might differ from others; Also, my memory can be wrong)

LR RC LR LG LR

RC is usually my strongest section. I felt I was doing well but I ran out of time. With one question left to go on the third section, 5 minutes was called. I rushed through and raced to make halfway decent guesses on the Wolof/Griots passage. I am assuming I got most of the questions wrong but at least I was able to bubble on the answer sheet, so maybe I'll get lucky with a guess or two. I didn't feel that RC was particularly difficult, just time-consuming.

My weakest section was definitely LG. I just couldn't seem to make any of the inferences necessary to answer most of the questions. I felt really stupid because I could tell that three of the four games were very simple and I just couldn't figure any of it out. I think I ended up guessing on more than half of the questions in the section. On the Oil/Watercolor problem, I just bubbled four consecutive answers in a row because I couldn't come up with any inferences.

I think I lost my rhythm after I ran out of time on RC. I began to feel bad about my performance and lost confidence going into the rest of the sections. I came out of the test feeling disappointed. I hope I did better than my previous score of 153. I'm really hoping I got at least a 160. I have no idea what to think at this point. Having guessed on ~20 questions, I just hope I got lucky with a few guesses and did extremely well on the ones that I answered with confidence. It's nice to hear that there may be a decent curve and I've seen on other forums that many people also ran out of time on this test's RC section.

Hi,

I am curious if anyone might know which LG was experimental from the test RC-LR-LG-LR-LG. Was it the first or last one? Thanks in advance!
