Title: June 2003 LSAT - experimental games section
Post by: Testy on June 09, 2003, 02:30:28 PM
I posted this already in the general board section.  I hate to double post but finding out which games section was experimental may prove critical in my decision whether or not to cancel my scores.

_____________________________ _____

I am trying to figure out which games section on the june 2003 lsat was experimental.
 
I am suffering from extreme brain-addling at the moment, and can only recall two different games which I believe to have been on the separate sections.
 
First test:
One game included five cities, among them vancouver, montreal, honolulu, and two others.  They are connected with flight paths.
 
Second test:
The second game had 6 paintings by an artist.  The six paintings were from three different time periods (two from each), and you had to figure out if either a museum or a private collector bought each painting.
 
 
Anyone with only one Game section recognize either of these?  I have a feeling the first test was experimental simply because it was so weird.

I took the LSAT June 9 2003; I only had one game section and it was the one about the different cities.

I have also recently taken the June 2003 LSAT. I am fairly certain that the scored section about which you have curiosity included the game about the 5 cities, ect. The LSAT I took included three logical reasoning sections and I am fairly certain that the third section was experimental b/c of the high incidence of principle questions ... of which consisted of approximately half the questions asked in the third section of the exam I took. Hope this helps and good luck! :)

I also had the "cities" game on my LSAT yesterday.

Did anyone else think that this test was actually harder than the "field test" LSAC gave earlier this year? I did.

I had no problem with the June 2003 LSAT. I thought the logical reasoning was quite easy. I finished each LR section roughly five minutes b/f time was called and was able to check my answers. The Reading Comp. was a bit more difficult than expected, but not impossible. The Analytical Reasoning sections was, to me, of medium difficulty. Three of the games were fairly easy, but the last one that pertained to the cities was difficult. With all things considered, the LSAT was much easier than I expected. But then again, I havent seen my score yet ... so I hope I am not jinxing myself.

The first section was definitely the real one (the "cities" one). I found this out in the middle of section five, when I realized that the first logic games section had 23 questions, and the third one had 22 questions. The other three sections had a total of 78 questions, and given that the LSAT is a 101 question test, the first section must have been the true one. This really shocked me, because I did terribly on the "cities" problem... I completely guessed on four of the questions in that game alone. How many possible combinations were there anyway?

I think you're referring to the question where it asks what is the maximum number of flights possible.  I believe the answer is 5.  If anyone else came up with more, please speak up, for I would like to know also.

Section 3 on the June LSAT was the "Experimental" section.
