i only had one RC and luckily it was first.

i had two of those game sections and they both were strangely easy.

Same here.  RC-RC right outta the chute.  Remember hoping the 2nd one was experimental, got lucky that it was.

i know from my experience of doing about 13 of the damn practice tests, my scores varied over a pretty wide range (160-170).  any test that yields such varying results seems to be a poor indicator to me.  there's a big difference between that 160 and 170.  i've noticed some other people having some wide-ranging scores.  is this the norm for everyone or are there just a few of us freaks?

I had a large range, too, 163 - 174.  But I also had the problem that I was never able to take a test in its entirety in one sitting because of my baby.  :-\  I generally did 2 sections at once, and would come back a half hour or hour later to finish the test.  I did "feel the burn" (and then some) on LSAT day because of it... but as long as my score is not below my practice range, I guess I'll be okay with it (enough not to take that thing again, anyway).
