Just took the Oct test yesterday. Trying not to get depressed. I blew up on the games. Actually, I was doing fine on the first 1.5 when I looked at my timer and realized I only had 10 minutes left to get 2.5 more done! Ha. I looked at the century game, decided to skip it and answered all "D"-- there probably weren't any D answers with my luck-- and then fumbled horribly through the parking lot question. (I probably would have been better off to choose randomly) I really lost my composure. There were, like, little nuclear explosions in my head. I was lucky, though (for me) b/c my first two sections were RC. The experimental one was way easier than the actual one (of course), but I usually do well on LR and RC. However, I'll have to have close to perfection on all 3 of those sections to make up for my games debacle. Of course, I'm feeling really great because I'm reading all these posts about how easy the games were. I totally agree that the first one was pretty easy, as was the second, but that parking lot one was impossible for me to get under the circumstances. (I'm sure if I had a bottle of beer and no timer on my couch I would have had great fun figuring it out, but as I'm watching the timer run out on my little desk and, with it, my dream of a top school, not so fun...) However, I'm not cancelling my score. I felt pretty good (which can be deceiving) about my RC and LR sections; I honestly didn't struggle with them at all, surprisingly. I did think the nerve passage was difficult, and there were several places in the others where I debated between two choices, but that's pretty much par for the LSAT.
